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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 45804895


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...

Ramen noodles. You can put a weeks worth of calories in a large ziplock bag. That being ramen noodles and they only weight 3 pounds.

Ramen noodles have enough energy and calories in them to sustain you believe it or not.

Buy 25 of them and take out of the package and crush and fill a large ziplock bag with them and then put the pouches in the bag.

Increibily these will sustain you.

A top survival guy worked it out and they even beat MRE"S for calories and cut down on the room needed for them.

Ramen noodles are cheap and light. A months of of food in 3 ziplocks weighing only 12 pounds.

Everybody and anybody can do and carry this. in a bug out bag.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123


And these people and their screaming kids will die...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11693290


If they do not make the decision right NOW to start some kind of food and water storage. It does not take a lot of money to get a few supplies.

Another good idea is to talk to the kids and introduce them to fasting and the feeling of hunger.

My parents did that to us. We had to go a whole day without food once in awhile at the whim of my mom. When we cried or whined...she told us to stand up straight and "be strong." The way she said it clicked in all of us. We were not starving...we were being strong. She fasted as well. It made me a better and more understanding person.

Test your kids...see if they can be strong.

Still...hide some peanut butter, and things under the bed. The pain suffered by a parent is a special kind. Spare yourself with just a few precautions.

I saw on the Cooking Channel that you can eat the Raman just as it comes out of the package. Like a big cracker. So if you had no way to cook...you could still survive.

Plus they are cheap. They are still in the stores...now. When TSHTF they will be gone in a moment...and will become as gold.

Remember a few years ago when those miners were trapped in chile? They survived for like around 18 days on 2 teaspoons of tuna and a couple crackers each day before the rescue efforts reached them. I don't know why, but that just stuck in my mind.

If I recall, one of the things that got them thru until the time they were aware of the rescuers (18 days?) was their belief that they WOULD make it out...that they were not going to perish in a mine shaft.

Humans can be incredibly resilient and willful!

Re: How many people could go a week without food and not freak out and start killing others or breaking into stores?
People are so sick and addicted now, any change in diet will be VERY painful, not from the lack of food, but from the withdrawal from the chemicals and sugar.

It will feel like they are dying, when in truth it is what they really need to become healthy.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 46356676


You are absolutely correct. My Family has been in a bind for the last several months. Because of this, we have been eating mostly veggies from our garden. We've lost a lot of weight, however, I really, really wish I could buy some of the convenience foods and snacks I used to. It's tough, very tough.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17556791


Yes, I agree! I quit eating food with wheat in it over 18 months ago--which means there is very little packaged/convenience foods you can consume. I've also started juicing and know that I need a LOT fewer calories to get thru a day.

Most Americans could go a week without food and still not miss a shit. We eat too much.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 44534076


But they wouldn't believe it. They would feel like shit from their withdrawals from junk food and they would think they were dying.

It's all about mindset.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 46356676


Mindset is a subset of FAITH. Most Americans are sorely lacking in a functional *practice* of faith, and this is the defining element of our weakness.

No man shall be tested beyond his capacity. But to find that limit of capacity, he must be tested mightily. The tests we are subject to are not to hurt us, but to purify us. Those who have never been tested, have never been proven.

God accepts only gold tested and "proven by fire, seven times". What this means is a mystery - prophesy is not our teacher, it's sole purpose is as proof of God's word - both His warnings, and His promises. To demand any other service from prophesy is a sin against the Holy Spirit.

That I do not soak my words with religious references is not a lack of faith - it is simply that I demonstrate my faith through actions, first, and through words last.

Re: How many people could go a week without food and not freak out and start killing others or breaking into stores?
We did a fast for peace yesterday and it was really hard for my son. It is good practice. Very hard for kids to go without food because their bodies are still growing. I kind of think that's why moms tend to store more fat on the hips it's an evolutionary thing so that in times of crisis we could go without and we could make sure our children are getting enough. I've been throwing seeds around in the empty fields (guerrilla gardening) so that there might be more to forage for everybody and I know where I can get some pigeon peas and amaranth. If anyone comes knocking ony door because i have a vegetable garden when shtf I will share my knowledge with them and teach them to save seeds and if they eat from foraged foods to make sure they plant more. I wish people would start learning it now.
