Abstract
Thirty male commandoes, from the Canadian Airborne Regiment, were randomly allocated to two groups of fifteen. They participated in five days of physically demanding field trials with only four hours of sleep per night. One group received the normal individual meal packets (IMPs), and the other received an additional 240 g of carbohydrate per day. The caloric intake of each soldier was estimated based on precise recordings of non-consumed food from each IMP after each meal. The report documents each soldier's consumption of calories, carbohydrate and fat, and protein for each meal, for each day, and for the five day field trial.
