    Consider keto. Not as a fad weightloss gimmick but as a way of eating in general.

    Once you are "fat-adapted", you have basically limitless energy on tap as long as you don't go into anaerobic level exercise.

    In a survival situation the benefits/rewards are many. You seldom -if ever actually feel hungry if done right. One meal a day is super easy and has its own benefits.

    Need to skip a meal? Or 3-5 days worth of meals? Not a problem for most.

    Even if you are super lean, say 10% bf.. at 180 pounds you have north of 64 thousand calories available to burn

    Most of us are not that lean and have HUGE energy reserves to tap into. All it takes is learning how to tap into it and make the commitment.

    Even outside of a shtf scenario, you absolutely eliminate the risk of diabetes. Likely heart disease and Alzheimers, too as they seem to be linked to insulin resistance - which you cannot get on a ketogenic diet.

    There is no downside: bacon, endless energy reserves, better health and eating schedule flexibility that has to be experienced to be believed.

    That’s one article from one person citing one study. And even if you follow the links, the one study she cites actually lists the brands that are bad and good.

    Your article even bounces back and forth between protein and creatine as if it were the same subject.

    I’m not sure what your jihad is against protein, but millions of people consume massive amounts of it with no issue.

    The protein powder industry is highly unregulated. Call it anictdotal but this is coming from my brother-in-law whom is a huge bodybuilder and who also worked in the industry.

    How about a stock pile of Honey for survival. Honey has lots of energy, it never goes bad, doesn't need refrigeration, and it tastes really good.

    value/weight is what counts in the long run. Money is dead weight when SHTF, food and the means to defend it would rate high, but if talking about power outage, cash could be good

    Honey is a good idea for a few reasons on top of the already mentioned ones... It's useful for soothing sore throats (especially in Tea) or can be used to make Mead (need a bit of yeast).

    Maybe a bit of baking soda for bug bites or calomine lotion. Some rubbing alcohol probably wouldn't hurt either.

    Zip ties might be a useful addition too.

    And as crazy as it sounds... Tinfoil. It'd be useful for baking things (either placing the item on the foil or lining a box with to create a makeshift oven), plus it could work for signalling too. Any use as a head protector are dubious at best though.

    Sunscreen in case you need to walk or work for an extended period outside in the summer. Massive sunburns suck, some allovera cream for when you inevitably do get a sunburn is good as well. Bug spray.

    Spare chainsaw chains, spark plugs, spare parts, 2 stroke mix, and some premixed sealed gas cans. They are supposed to keep for several years.

    Spare parts for the vehicles, filters, oil, belts, a spare tire or two, extra bearings for fan belt pulleys.

    Hand saws for wood and metal. Some welding rods sealed up tight and booster cables that you could use to weld with if needed.

    Ketosis is a super rare condition, generally caused by an imbalance of vital things your body needs to function under periods of extreme physical exertion.

    The only people who get it are on a specific type of diet and they're generally doing things like CrossFit competitions where athletes are doing things for hours on end.

    We've had a few cases in the Army as well. Not a pretty sight, the person needs urgent medical care because their organs are shutting down.

    It's super rare, though, as it needs extreme diet + extreme physical exertion.
