    "Over the last six months I've been keeping track of what I eat and
    am surprised to see that my average daily calorie intake is 1,405
    Kcal ... I take an average of 30mins exercise a day by fast hill
    walking for a mile and a half."

    Welcome to the club! I'm another one.

    The experts claim that I need 3000 calories/day at my height (6'4"),
    weight and activity level (a field naturalist); my basal (sleeping)
    metabolism is supposed to be 1600 calories/day! In fact, I maintain
    my weight steady with only 1500 calories/day.

    But relax, it's perfectly possible to obtain all the nutrients in RDA
    quantity on as little as 1000 calories/day, and with an essentially
    natural diet to boot. See http://sankey.ws/diet.html for some notes
    on how to do it.

    As far as outdoor sleeping goes, order from Mountain Equipment Coop.
    They've got stuff I can use to 40 below.

    If you would pay attention to phytochemicals, fiber and to the quality
    of fats, which are all important for good health, your list would look
    different.
