Thus the importance of taking care of your tomato plants.
..."The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you choose, what you think, and what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny ... it is the light that guides your way."

For people who are not well versed on true survival...

Yes, because people have: 1)fat and 2)glycogen in their liver and muscles to restore blood sugar for a limited time (about a week) and 3) muscle protein to breakdown into calories (gluconeogenesis) and 4) calcium from robbing from their skeleton and teeth, then people can survive for a short period of time on something like tomatoes and snowmelt.

The majority will die from exposure instead.

There have been a couple of cases where people survived for a long period of time by minimizing calories used (deliberately or not) by going into a kind of stasis. They were enormously weak and grew weaker and stayed in their cars and eventually found.

Most people's blood sugar plummets and they get too weak to continue to gather firewood, water, and locate food to eat.

It's a huge acomplishment to not worsen your depth of being "lost", something that most people do.

The majority of people don't stay calm and do die. If one has to go very far for materials to survive, then they can expend up to ten times what they can locate, so that negative aspect ends up killing them.

A very fat person could last for up to three months without food. It's hard to say based upon activity level and distribution of needed supplies, weather, temperature, location, elevation, etc.

But it's not always the case to stay where you are. I'll always remember one case that was documented on Dateline NBC - a traveling salesman got stranded in snow on an isolated mountain road in Oregon or Washington, and shortly after that it was closed for the season, and rescuers never thought to check that road. The man could probably have walked out 18 miles but instead waited in his camper, and had brought no food with him by the way, and after 2-3 months starved to death. He didn't realize that the road had been closed for the season after he drove in and kept waiting for rescuers to find him. One lesson from this - Always take extra food and clothing when you are traveling in winter time. Don't count on always having a motel to check into every night and restaurants for food when you are traveling.
