Practice Fasting To Prepare For Survival Scenario

September 13, 2012 by  

The adage “practice makes perfect” applies to the prepper as much as it does to anyone. In order to stave off panic in a survival scenario, it’s a good idea to be familiar with your equipment and supplies. It’s also a good idea to get a feel for how your body might react.

If you’re caught in an emergency situation, food may be scarce. And if water is scarce but food is plentiful, laying off the food until water is found will delay the effects of dehydration. So it’s a good idea to get a feel for what it’s like to go without food for a couple of days. Fasting is also a healthful way to eliminate toxins from the body.

Unless you have significant health issues (diabetes, etc.), a three- to five-day water-only fast won’t harm your health. But it will give you a good idea about how your body will react when confronted with a survival scenario in which food is scarce.

    I’m fasting right now. Actually, I’m “chelating”, but I am not eating. I normally don’t eat, except for coffee, tea, and water, from 7 pm until 9 am to 12 pm. I do this every day. That way, I can control what and when I am putting things into my body, and how I react to them.

    I fasted once…I mean other than the twelve to fourteen hours every night…
    I passed out and my heart stopped when my blood sugar spiked after I tried to start eating again
    ….gotta be careful when you’re fuelin’ with precision equipment

    Maybe I’ll stay up all night with nothing to eat and practice sleep deprivation too.

    I knew a guy who tried to kick the eating habit. He ate less everyday and just about cured his habit but he died

      Thank you for the laugh of the day. I love it. I appreciate what Bob is trying to project here. Fasting can be a good thing if done right. I have done a juice fast (three days) and it did wonders. All of the experts in this field say you should fast along with the change of seasons. I have not quite achieved that level of nutritional nirvana yet.
