    Besides protein, a good amount of fat in eggs too.

    Eat the capons.

    Good amount of fat in nuts. You can take acorns and leach the tannins out of them and then they are quite edible.

    Take the acorns and shell them, break up a bit, then put them in a clear stream for a day or two inside a mesh bag

    Thats why we like possum occasionally. Too much protein is the culprit behind most of our current chronic diseases. People are better to stay on the verge of starvation. Good point. I am an old boy scout.

    How did the Mountain Men do it in the 1800's ?? They ate a strict diet of meat daily, about 6 pounds a day for each Mountain Man according to all the first person documentations they left for us to read. The meat consisted mostly of buffalo and beaver. Vegetables were non existant in the mountains and on the plains. They never suffered any ill effects of an all meat diet all winter long. What was different with them ??

    Read the Lewis and Clark journals. They all ate vegetables. The Indians from Missouri to Oregon.

    Most people who starve are surrounded by food.
