Survival Strategy #14: Proper Nutrition for the Zombie Apocalypse

I. Introduction

Surviving the zombie apocalypse relies on being properly equipped to adapt to changing situations. Hunger will be one of the greatest enemies in an undead world. What we take for granted in modern society will now become the number one agenda of daily life.

A hungry survivalist cannot function properly, all actions on a grumbling stomach are already impaired.

As stated by Max Brooks: "an army needs to be bred, fed, and led". At the heart of this is a well-fed family unit, this will become the first step and foundation of winning the zombie war.

II. Nutrition

A balanced diet will help you achieve your goals. A this means you need to get the right types and quantity of food to provide energy & nutrition for maintaining body cells, tissues, and organs.  A good diet will also support proper growth and development. 

Children need to grow up strong and healthy to continue the fight. Eating right prevents sickness and heals wounds faster. A good meal is the best weapon you can give your loved ones.

III. Got Skills?

Long-term survival depends on planning ahead. Farming, fishing, hunting, and food storage are important skills that technology has removed from us. The zombie apocalypse will in turn remove these luxuries, and we shall be forced to re-learn these things as a matter of survival.

Important questions:
  • Can I catch fish?
  • Do I know what is edible in my neighborhood?
  • Can my garden feed my family?
  • What do I need to hunt for if I can't grow it?
  • What is the 3 day dietary requirement for two scouts who will will be carrying 30lbs. of gear to search for survivors at Monroeville Mall?

IV. Conclusion

The hardest part is getting started. Most of us are stuck in the weekly grind of work, errands, and other to-dos. All of this will be swept aside like a hurricane when the dead walk the earth. It may or may not happen, but are you going to take that chance? Will your family appreciate your lack of foresight?

It can be a paralyzing thought to lose everything we know to brain-eating zombies. I can cure this, let us defeat fear with concrete action.

Stay vigilant!

The Zombie Hunter's 2012 New Year's Resolutions

2011 was great, mostly because the Zombie Apocalypse didn't happened yet. Believe it or not, I'd rather it never comes at all! If it does, you can count on me to be ready.  Let me help you get there.

I drew a list of stuff, and I'm working on making all of these a reality.


1. learn how to cook survival food

2. be a Red Cross Certified First Responder

3. phase out all regular batteries to rechargable batteries (and get that snazzy solar charger) 
4. increase the output of my backyard vegetable garden

5. go to the gym 3x a week, run 16 miles a week

6. confidently hit a coconut 20 meters away with my recurve bow's brand-new 40 pound hunting limbs

7. go to the firing range at least once a week, and keep up with my dad who keeps on winning

8. enroll in the JEST Survival Camp in Subic Bay to learn how Rambo does it

10. reduce midnight snacking

What are your new year's survival resolutions?

Its time to get serious about preparing for the zombie apocalypse. Those poor unfortunate Mayans had it wrong. Don't be a Mayan. Be a zombie hunter!

Stay vigilant!

Disease Outbreak Update for December

I hate to be a holiday buzzkill, but I've been tracking a few problematic bugs that have been making their rounds around the world.  H5N1 Bird Flu has killed one man in China and authorities over there have made it difficult to assess the true extent of this outbreak. 

You know how it is with STATE CONTROLLED MEDIA. One death could actually mean way more. There is just no way to know for sure.

only the tip of the iceberg...

Bird Flu has not yet been eradicated, and hot spots in China and Southeast Asia have been recorded since September this year.  My agent in Hong Kong reports no large-scale quarantine activities or mobilization from the People's Liberation Army. The threat seems contained.

What now? It ain't a zombie outbreak yet. However this can mutate into something like it. Don't get caught with your pants down. Don't panic. Fight your fear with preparedness. And please don't settle for what you hear from traditional news agencies. Dig deeper.

Stay vigilant!
