I don't go with out eating by I try to keep my diet as close to what it will be in a survival situation, or at least as close as I can get. Pay attention to what your body begins to crave. Pack that in your bag. Don't worry about trying to lose weight, focus instead on building muscle strength and endurance. in a survival situation, you will be using muscles not normally used in every day life, get creative with your workouts. Learn to waste not. Reuse everything.
Practicing preserving your own foods,baking your own bread. I have experimented in preserving all kinds of food. dehydrated cauliflower comes out all most like a powder and is great for thickening up soups.

This is a great point. Going without caffeine is going to SUCK! It will probably be bad for smokers too when the tobacco runs out.
In the book The First Second After the author pointed out how nasty things will get when people run out of their prescription meds that they depend on daily and a lot will die when that happens.
