How about carrying (mostly) sticks of butter? It has the maximum possible (or damn near) ratio of Fat calories to everything else, and has been reliably available at Aldi for $2.80 a pound (it's on sale this week for $1.99). Only issue is keeping it cold for the duration. But would even that be necessary on a hike?

BTW: According to EMU48, 4000 kcal per day equals 193.83 watts - and human metabolism according to Google search results is only 20 to 25 percent efficient. So you have less than 50 watts continuous available to you. (I've personally measured just over 100 watts being required to keep a bicycle moving at 15 miles per hour.)
