I'm with InTheLight on this one. Don't lose weight, stock up! Sure the muscle goes first, but what comes after that? Your best bet is to be fat AND muscular. Tough, maybe--but not impossible. Just look at any wrestler from before 1990. Haha.
Seriously though...it's a tough choice. You want to be fit enough to run and forage for food, but you (or I) would want to have enough of a ponch to be able to live that extra day or two and stay those extra few degrees warmer at night.
Hmm. Maybe the "fat wrestler" training regimen really is the way to go! I gotta get to the store and grab some slim jims and a six pack!

I think I have enough... besides, when your body is in starvation mode, your muscle gets sacrificed before your fat does.
I want to know I won't get tired out if I have to run. I hate running, but if it's needed, it's needed. I wanna be as reliable as possible.

actually if you think about it... wouldn't it be worse for someone with a "healthy" eating pattern in a SHTF scenario?
lets say you are a healthy person who is used to eating 3 meals a day, breakfast lunch and dinner, and several snack in between...wouldnt it be worse? because now that food is limited your metabolism is craving to be constantly working and therefore you will feel hungrier than a person who eats maybe once or twice a day...
