How many calories do you drivers consume on the average work day?

And how many do you burn?
I had about 2,400 calories today. Not done eating yet, probably over 3,000 by time I go to sleep.

I don’t keep track of how much I burn. It’s irrelevant and has been all my life.

I rarely see fast food since going Feeder. No Feeder fourty for me.

When I do Sleeper runs I pack all my own food and go to about 1000 calories a day.
Same. In delivery I didn't worry too much about it, since going to feeders I really had to tighten up. Don't use a calorie counter but I basically eliminated simple carbs, no sugar, no bread, no pasta...

I always eat light during the day, just enough to not be fatigued or hungry. Usually it’s a banana or apple with a clean turkey sandwich and a bag of cheez it’s or beef jerkey. Then eat a full meal when I get home.

My Fitbit claims I burn 5000-6000 calories and I will usually walk 12-14 miles a day. I don't know if that's really accurate though.

That sounds high. I would easily believe at least 4000 though. Package drivers are active enough that calories aren't a big concern. Whether they are nutritional is more of a problem. Too much wolfing down fast food.

Walking at a brisk pace burns about 100 calories per mile. If you're really burning 5-6 thousand calories a day you must be doing something in addition to all that walking.
