It's the sick folks who will go first. We have a renter who is 250-300 pounds.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17556791


Have a good friend that's like that...5'7", 240, heart valve, bad knees (duh), and he eats enough for at least 2 twice a day (plus snacks).

He would never make it in a SHTF scenario...and I would never give him access to my preps as he would eat them all...

Re: How many people could go a week without food and not freak out and start killing others or breaking into stores?
Imo. there is a big difference between Fasting
and to not have any Food after a Disaster or Catastrophe
which killed your whole Family and your Friends too!

But from a psychological View maybe it is good to stop eating
for a while?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 46214030


This is the WHOLE POINT of my thread! This is what I want people to understand.

When you are in shock, trauma from some disaster and maybe even lost loved ones, the LAST thing you need to worry about is more food.

You need to stop, sit quietly and review your choices calmly and rationally.

Then act as a warrior...

It depends on whether the person has kids or not. I would not be able to see my children go a week without food before resorting to extreme measures.
A flag flown upside down is a symbol of a country in distress. As a result of the many traitors and enemies inside our own government and the many unconstitutional acts, legislation and atrocities passed and/or committed against our lives, liberty and property, as well as a reckless foreign policy meant to enrich and empower an already wealthy group of 'elites' while wreaking havoc around the globe and committing atrocities against large numbers of innocent peoples in the name of 'spreading democracy', the United States is no longer a free country and the lives of its citizens as well as the lives of our brothers and sisters around the globe, are in dire danger and distress.

If there is a little food, then you give it to the kids. Duh.

People tend to want to blame their weaknesses off on having kids. Why is that?

If you are disciplined and able to go all periods without food, then you can give what little there is to the kids.

Stop laying your weakness off on your kids.

after three days there is no sensation of hunger or at least that was my experience.

Fasting has a long history and can be very beneficial.

true,hunger can easily go.i survived for a year on pretty much just loads coffee,which had pint milk a day,and 2 or 3 spoons of pasta. i'd had a stroke 2 years back,lost sense of taste and smell,so food just tastes like cardboard,which is why I live off esspresso's and cigars,things strong enough to taste slightly.strangly,energy shot up,arthritus disappeared.

So much in life is about perspective. If you believe that you are starving, it will feel that way.

That is why learning to go without food (fasting) is so valuable. We are capable of so much more than most people can even imagine.

Fun fact,

Chicago has 3 days of food at any given time.

Cut off imports, and you've got 3 days to worry about the 4th, 5th, 6th, etc.

Yes. Also, in almost every store now, if they don't have power, they can't sell anything. No one knows the price of any item any more without a scanner.

No credit cards, no ATM, no gas.

So, no power, no food! At least for a few days until the military shows up...

Most Americans could go a week without food and still not miss a shit. We eat too much.

I once fasted for 9 days...easily, with just liquids. Energy level high during the whole time..You just have to have your mind in the right place..
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6877072


Many would die just trying to find food when they probably had all they need for over a week right around them.

Boil plain rice. Cook plain pasta. Boil a potato.

But, in truth, your best choice is to remain calm and not worry about food for at least a week.

Water is the key.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 46356676


Yeah, but try explaining that to young kids and babies who really need food. Parents will go into fight/kill mode for them. Try being around a kid screaming and crying from hunger and see what you would do. You would do ANYTHING to stop their pain.

Re: How many people could go a week without food and not freak out and start killing others or breaking into stores?
Most people do not resort to murder when hungry. I've talked to elderly who survived big time hunger during war times. My dad was a kid in Europe during WWII. He said there were times when all they had to eat was potato peels from yesterday's potato. And his mom would go without many days so that the kids could eat.

Most people knocked on the doors of farmers and asked if they could pick up any fruit or vegetables that got left behind on the ground. So they would forage the fields, looking for anything they could find.

I think, most people would start foraging in extreme situations, not killing. Plants, weeds, even bugs could be turned into a meal if you know what you're doing. The stores would probably be wiped out within two to three days and so people would have to start doing something else to get by.

That comes from improper diet. This can be turned around with a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables.

That is no excuse, just another cop-out...

Change your diet. How many are willing to do that?
