Well I have starved and there's some things I did to survive I'd like to share.I suffered a gradual weight loss from a severe decline in caloric
intake one winter in a shack in Wisconsin when it usta get cold,ya hey.If it weren't for the local Lutheran Ladies and some Gov't cheese and
cornmeal and such I would have had it really bad.One fact about drastic loss of food intake is brain function is way compromised,right away.Any
farmer will tell you hungry cats do not hunt well,but a little chow and there's a mouse in every paw.Anyone defending their little stocked homestead
has a distinct advantage over a starving interloper for this reason.
Being upset uses a lot of energy,which in survival mode is wasted energy and potentially lethal.It is very important to eat any food you get as
slowly as you can.Gratitude for any scraps helps in both cases here.
I have been there and you can tell if a person has starved,like I lick my plate clean,it's something you never forget,nor the kindness shown in a
meal right then.People who have starved will eat off the ground,or at least think about it and might if social considerations weren't the
focus,etc.Out of dumpsters I have gotten the best ripest food.Insects are not bad,really,but ought to always be cooked for parasites.It is Tantric to
be grateful to your Mother for all and not to despise any.Many times telling myself that the only difference between starvation and fasting is the
Devotional aspect.Coffee withdrawl is a four day+ headache so it would be wise to assess the situation to account for that. I say better to quit
early,then when things improve you can enjoy it as the drug of high value it is,occasionally.
So what have you done to survive not eating for a while?
