Calories IN vs Calories OUT was created by Serenity Farms
So... as most people know, or SHOULD, weight loss happens when there is a calorie deficit , meaning cal. coming IN are LESS than cal. going OUT! Example: I am a Master's professional Body builder currently preparing for a show. I am ingesting almost 3,000 cal. per day, or 500 per each of 6 meals. I am extremely active (weight training, hiking, kayaking, walking, cutting wood, building stuff, farming, and all things prepping and building a "community site'. I am very lean at approx. 4.5% body fat. Point is, I am only feeding muscle and providing energy for my daily activities (almost:). My resting BMR (basic metabolic rate is just over 2,500), meaning if I sat on the couch for 24 hrs and just breathed, I would burn approx. 2,500 cal. every day! Now, obviously I am not normal, lol, yeah, yeah... With my low body fat and high level of activity, and placing myself in a calorie "deficit" , I lose weight quite quickly. During the "off season" I consume almost 4,000 calories per day!! So what's the point of this rambling post:)? Well, my current lifestyle of being lean and eating 6 times per day will be history when SHTF (at least the eating 6 times certainly will be). But I am trying to stock more food every day of some sort. Carbs, protein and fat!!
What are YOUR basic daily calorie requirements? Do you PREP factoring this in? Then do you add MORE calories to try and compensate for the all day/every day insane amount of work that will be required to maintain a prepper's lifestyle and any sense of "normal"? Most "pre-packaged" EMERGENCY food avg. between 1,500-1,800 calories per day, and almost exclusively from HIGH GLYCEMIC WHITE CARBS. (can you say glucose shock:). Hardly any fat and protein. I rarely ever eat White carbs as they signal the body that INSULIN is needed (and a NAP), and neither of these are good regularly. **BUT... you will be burning these calories quicker than you eat them so it likely won't be nearly as detrimental to your health as a group of crackhead, libitard killers looking for a cookie! And they are quite CHEAP. POINT: However many calories YOU think you eat, it ain't enough. ( I stock complex carb sources more than White carbs because complex carbs are more filling and burn off more slowly, and healthier:) That does not mean I don't have buckets and bags of White rice somewhere, just more complex carbs. EAT oatmeal, sweet/Red taters, PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING green (NOT MOLD Green either.lol), 100% Wheat products (if not Gluten sensitive), grow Green (granny smith) apples, strawberries, blueberries, peppers, zukes, squash of all kinds, and more. **All can be canned and dehydrated too! Bottom line... however much food you THINK you have, it is NOT nearly enough for the constant work, mental "stress', and extra people we all know we will likely feed over shooting.lol. (or not:) Anyway, keeping it light if I can, but dead serious about all aspects of what is happening in country/world and getting READY!! Now go get some Green beans:) And buy some cheap 10lb bags of protein powder and mylar bag it. It is needed, MEN especially
