lol, if you recomend starving yourself you obviously never felt real hunger and you never felt the result of not getting enough nutrition to your
body. Not eating for two days will not give you the same experience then someone who is really hungry for a long long time.
I have a medical condition, won't go into depth on that, but the condition made it hard for me to eat or drink anything for 3 years. I'm not
anorexic btw, other kind of condition. I also never got a 'hungry' feeling. I'm 1.6m tall and for 3 years my weight hadn't been over 40 kg.
For 3 years I had to force myself to eat through the day to make sure I had enough calories, which hasn't been more then 1000 calories a day. 1000
calories isn't that much.
After a few weeks you start to feel the concequences: tired all the time, dizzyness after physical work, weakened imune system, and all kinds of
discomfort. In short, you aren't capable of doing much more then sitting, sleeping and read for a short while, because you'll soon find yourself
becoming unfocussed soon when attempting mental work.
Nutrition alone isn't good enough, you really do need enough calories or you body starts to consume your own fat and muscles... and when that happens
your not good to do anything at all.
And water? If you ever had a kidney crisis you know why you drink water!
I'm recovering and curently up to 1500 calories a day, weighing almost 45 kg again....the differerence between now and then is 'day and night' so
to speak, with only an extra 500 calories a day! that's about one extra meal.
never starve yourself!
There is a saying "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"
well in this case, when your deliberately starving yourself, it doesn't kill you, but it does weaken you and can result in permanent damage to your
body.... it doesnt kill you right away but it doesn't make you a stronger person either.
If you wanna be in good shape when tshtf, then make sure you have enough to eat, nutrition and calories... or you won't be worth a damn and become
nothing more then a weakened animal.
