Skinny people and ripped gym goers would be the first to die in a food shortage.

Its a rare circumstance where fat overweight Americans might actually have an advantage.

You can literally live for a year without food so long as you have fresh water.

Another fat American who has only drunk water 150 days.

Sounds like he's going batshit crazy by the sounds of this video though.

so long as you aren't too fat.
if you're 5'6 300 lbs you are way too fat.
even 200 lbs at that height is way obese.

unfortunately other factors apply:
like not being able to run away from danger.
More likely to have a heart attack, fleeing from danger
You will make a tastier meal for cannibals'
Your body is less efficient, so you will actually feel the hunger more.
So over all, it is not a good idea.

Patience is rule one.

Cardio will get you killed when you try to do that during a survival situation.

The pack of dogs will be on you in a second.
Guess what? They run much faster than you.


Patience goes to the man willing to wait for his turn at the carcass.

You can't steal food you already eaten.
Unless it's me and my crew, we eat you.

The truth is in a shtf all you need is a water purifier. You can last MONTHS without food, maybe even a year depending on how fat you are.

If for any reason you end up in a hospital for a few days, you will lose weight. That is why it is good to have a few extra kilos of the so called 'survival fat'. Imagine you have to go a week without food? If you are thin to start with, you will be skeletal by day 7. Good thinking op! But do make sure you have muscle under the blubber.

The damn chickens eat all day long just follow them around if you get hungry and eat what they eat. They're fat little butter balls, whatever it is they're eating

You can live longer in times of food shortage with some extra padding on the ribs BUT, should those times come, It will probably be more important to move fast and be in shape. Also, the more round you are, the easier target you might be.

Doesn't work that way. During times of less/famine, you are better off thin. It's harder on a bigger body to survive. It requires more nutrients to function properly.

Did you see any of the articles and videos above?


You don't even need nutrients besides maybe a little salt.

You can literally live off your own fat supplies like a hibernating bear. Body fat has some vital nutrition in it already to keep you alive. Of course you will feel very weak and low energy but you can live for a long time without food if you have some fat on your body. That's the reason people get fat in the first place.

Don’t go on a diet, just start exercising and drinking water. Keep some of those calories to burn later, but get healthier. That’s what i’m Attempting, anyway.

you want to be fat enough that you won't die without eating for a few days but not so fat that you can't run

No, you should eat less now and shrink your stomach so you won’t have to eat so much just to feel not hungry after shtf. You don’t want to be the miserable fat person craving more while others more lean have their hunger pangs satisfied with small portions.

If you are fat you will need to eat more to get the energy to keep your body going. You are better being fit and then you only need to have bits of food.

the ability to move carrying a pack at a decent rate
of speed for a long period of time trumps any benefits
fat may afford you.
