Poor Diet is the main cause of early death world wide

Walk around any gun show or prepper show and you see the irony: From an objective point of view, an alarming number of people are ignoring the clear, number one cause of premature death.
Poor diet biggest risk factor for early deaths worldwide
A major study has found that unhealthful eating is responsible for more deaths worldwide than any other risk factor, including smoking.
A diet low in nutrients may cause more deaths worldwide than smoking or other unhealthful habits, suggests new research.
The Global Burden of Disease Study looked at dietary consumption between 1990 and 2017 in 195 countries, focusing on 15 types of food or nutrients.
In a paper that features in The Lancet, the study investigators conclude that, due to its contribution to noncommunicable diseases, poor diet accounted for 1 in 5, or 11 million, adult deaths in 2017.
Survivalism is about surviving, about staying alive, and having as good a life as possible. The being alive part… kind of a big deal.

It makes no sense to worry about surviving if you’re going to ignore that which is clearly killing the most people and negatively impacting their quality of life the most.
I’m no doctor but certain things are obvious. If you’re morbidly obese you’re not a “big guy”, “big boned”, let alone “strong”. You’re just fat.

More fruits and vegetables (makes sense, its what you would naturally find the most trying to feed yourself in nature) less salt, reasonable portions and caloric intake. If a person needs 2,000 calories a day and an elite athlete needs and additional 50% or more, then the typical Joe with a mostly sedentary life has no business ingesting 3,000 calories, most of it from junk food with terrible nutritional value.

Take a good long look at yourself and be honest. If you need to make changes to your diet, do them.
After all the only one that gets hurt if you don’t is yourself and the people that care about you.

teach you children well. Do not drink sugar water. Its a gateway drug.

This is why I agree with things like the soda tax. Big Bussiness makes money persuading society to harm itself. We should tax bad foods and use the money to make good foods cheaper.

carbohydrates are cheap.
feeding a family on five dollars
requires economic choices of day-to-day
life and not about next year's weight.

if you have the money and the time
to go the 'healthy way'...good for you.
