Hiking in or out of the Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve?

If you are thinking about hiking in or out of the Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve, the rekommendation is to hike out of the nature reserve. Why? Your backpack will be way lighter when you are on your way back when you have consumed most of your food.
