  1. Financial Forum
    This is something I did up today. My goal was to figure out the best way to get 2000 calories a day in basic food staples. This is meant as a means of survival not as a gourmet diet plan. However, if you were to add other things to it such as canned fruits and veggies, you are on your way. I...
  2. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    In planning next year's garden, I decided to investigate how many calories are in the fruits and veggies I grow. If it ever reaches the point where our garden becomes the family's main source of food, I'll want to have high calorie plants. If I start growing them now, I'll be able to get some...
  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have seen some misinformation in a few threads about calories needed, and I didn't want to derail those threads so I thought I would post here. Most people are prepping for about a 2,000 calorie a day diet- which is what you need if you're moderately active now, aka sitting at a desk with an...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just for fun :D: I did this quick just to see for myself about what it would take for one person a day for approximately 2000 calories for the most common items that I know many people will stock up on. I know that I won't be eating just ONE thing per day, and that things will be spread out...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm currently assembling a survival kit, and I need some food which takes up as little space as possible and has the most calories possible. It doesn't matter much if it doesn't taste well - what matters is its calorie density - something which would allow one to survive for a rather long time...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    There is obviously a lot of discussion about food storage on these boards. What I haven't seen is a lot of discussion regarding how a person would control their food supply in a SHTF situation. To me, being able to control your food supply seems just as important as what you store and how much...
  7. Ladies Section
    Just wondering how many have tried actually doing this? I think that maybe some days I eat around 900-1200 calories because I prefer veggies/rice/seafood, since that's what I grew up on. Not dieting, but restricting yourself to what you'd be able to get from a garden/preps/hunting/fishing. I...
  8. Food and water
    I bucket 25 lbs of rice. Hubby assesses our food storage by calories, so in his mind, this equals X numbers of days of food. I, however, know we're not going to be eating just rice! I think of it in terms of "meals," like... some rice with a can of chunky soup over it equals two meals...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    When one is stocking up the larder should calories and value be taken into account more? For example oil vs water packed tuna Generic tang instead of Gatorade Comparing the calories of canned spam vs oil packed tuna Making noodles from scratch versus buying Making dried vegetables instead...
  10. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    When you are on foot weight is everything. Also, you burn up more calories, but you don't necessarily want to gorge on just fat or high calorie foods (although your body will usually burn it up and you may find yourself craving it). I think that it would be a good idea to have a thread where...
  11. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Hi I'm brand new to this site so I apologize in advance if this is the wrong forum or has already been answered before Basically I'd like to make high calorie survival rations. Not like those camping bars that are all designed for taste, but specifically designed for emergency calories. They...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I heard that N Korean soldiers eat only 800 calories worth of food a day which made me wonder, whats the minimum amount of calories needed per day to survive over, lets say, one year straight?
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    OK. So how many calories per day is reasonable? I was using 1600 average for myself, wife and 3 boys (7-12). But I've been told that's too low. One of these companies that sells a years worth of freeze dried food appears to use 1300 by my calculations. Someone posted "Basic Food Calc.xls"...
  14. General Discussion
    I'm curious what everyone thinks of my logic here. Maybe I'm missing something. I've started researching various long term food storage options. I've looked at efoodsdirect, Mountain House, SuperPails, and MREs. My first assumption and basis for comparison is that I'm going to need 2,000...
  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I plan on bugging in for a few months if SHTF (hope not). How many calories should be consumed a day if I don't leave my apartment. I have vitamins to go with my food.
  16. Food and water
    I've recently become interested in survival (beyond guns & ammo) and have been doing some research into food/water solutions. After some research here are three of my strategies for having enough food & water to last my family around 12 months. Keep in mind I am not very well off and plan on...
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I would like to get your ideas and strategies as it relates to Shtf meals and planning and cost per meal. Considering a 1500-2000 calorie per day per adult. Of course that could change due to work loads so to keep it simple and easier to calculate lets stick to 1500-2000 calories My meals will...
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    For those of you that are prepped for the worst case scenarios, how much food do you have stored? How many months worth of food? How many calories per day do you plan to eat? A cup of dry white rice is about 600 calories. About 80 cups fit in a 5 gallon bucket. One bucket of rice then will...
  19. Urban Survival
    Lets start with - Do you really read the labels? While trying to figure out a food stockpile, or what kind of foods you should store, how big of a factor is calorie intake per day? Or is it along the lines of, "oh, I need some more canned soups, or some more canned veggies?" Each person...
