(ok ok I made a typo, "How long should THIS last?" )

Trying to figure what I need, how long should this last two people?
The listed stuff is on top of the normal amount of canned food in the pantry which should go for about a month. So the first month is out of the way.

12 cases MRE's (2011 check date)
10 gallons enriched rice
5 gallons mixed red and black beans
3 gal lentils
2 gal navy, pinto ect beans
2 cased quick oats (12 large cans)
10lbs cream of wheat
40lbs quick grits
40lbs corn meal
40lbs white self rising flour
20lbs of instant potatoes
4 cases canned chicken (large cans 12 per case)
4 cases canned tuna (12 cans per case)
4 cased Chef Boy R D Ravoli (12 large cans per case)
6 16oz jars molasses
6 16oz jars honey
25lbs white sugar
10lbs brown sugar
4 #10 cans instant coffee
5lbs iodized salt
50lbs non-iodized salt (for meat preservation)
20lbs baking soda
15lbs freeze dried gravy mix
2lbs chicken bullion
2lbs beef bullion
15lbs "bacon bits" (whey protein and soy protein)
20lbs powdered milk
6 #10 cans powdered eggs
4 cases macaroni and cheese (add cheese butter and stir kind 12 boxes per case)
6 cans canned butter
6 cans freeze dried peanut butter
2000 vitiman c pills (remember boys and girls, scurvy is a bitch)
piles of multi vitimans

Clean water here isn't a issue and I also have a smoker

Actually ensure and other such drinks are great to top up or have on hand when ill. Trust me the runs are a bit%h too lol.

Also think about adding a few cans of slim fast, as I have. I will give it to the kids like chocolate milk powder..it will boost them up, and surprisingly it doesn't slow kid's hunger. Also great for adults to help skip a meal and stretch rations even more, if need be it can be mixed with water and with drank with a straw is do-able.

ya not got much flour or sugar put away in comparison to the rest of your foods and what about oils? 20 pounds of powdered milk isnt much either. With some support from a garden n deer etc if you hunt or if you raise animals could last a real good good amount of time
Hunting around here isn't an issue, deer walk up the the back porch along with every other animal you find down south. Yea I do need some oil in there (can also use animal fat), I'll get a 5 gal jug of oil. As for the powdered milk, we're both lactose intolerant so we don't need much, just enough to make some bread occasionally....Lets face it, you can't put away enough food to last forever...

I was also thinking about a small pen with some chickens for meat and eggs.

My guess would be 10-12 months for 2 people, keeping an eye on what you are eating. Less if you are working hard and burning more calories.

I would add more flour (or wheat), more oil, and more canned, fd, or dehydrated fruits and veggies, or you will get bored with what you are eating. Definitely a good start though.

Is this for those that are at healthy weights or do the averages include healthy mixed with overweight?

I'm kinda shocked that things like nuts and wheat are so low. I know that doesn't follow what I eat at all. Chicken and fish are my two biggest meats, followed by bison and turkey. Brown rice and lettuce are high on that list too for me. I'd have to say that's an overall look and one you shouldn't use as a 'healthy' comparison.
