What is the smallest amount of food one can eat (in variety, cost, and quantity) while not dying?

Would eating rice and steamed vegetables indefinitely keep me alive?

I mean, yeah.

It's more about quality of life though, not sheer survival.

I mean, you're gonna die eventually. You'll probably get depressed from such a shitty diet, so that lowers life expectancy. Your gut flora is gonna be fucked as well.

Humans don't really "need" much to live. you could survive off any number of stupid diets, thanks to multivitamins. You could proably take a multivitamin erryday, then live off buttered toast for a couple years. You won't die, but you won't be in the best possible health.


Rice and Beans is a classic survival food. Even before the days of enriched rice, it contains everything you need to survive (except variety, which actually seems important).

Aside from rice, you could eat noodles cause they're cheap, filling and lots of variety.

Probably the cheapest in cost, smallest in quantity and variety would be to eat fat and inner organs. Olive oil, lard, tallow, eating liver, spleans, kidneys, brains.

High quality vegetables would provide enough fiber (fructan and xylan) to prevent gut flora abnormalities and nutritional availability would depend on how carefully you selected such a diet. Throw in fruits, legumes, and the occasional egg for variety and you have a very solid diet regardless.

Oh yeah, true. Also 'vegetables' is really broad, and a little seasoning goes a long way. I shouldn't have called it shitty.

They also don't taste good out of a can and they're more expensive. And BHA or whatever it's called.

Of all the things that need canning, beans are not one of them.

They taste fine and the cost difference is not a factor for me. I can open a can, give them a rinse, cook them as they are and have a meal ready in less than an hour.

Not sure what BHA is... and I guess I don't really care.

yeah its purely a convenience thing. storage too i suppose, if you wanted to have a decent larder a big dried bag would be more space-efficient, but that is just me and not most people, i like having a supply.

Rice does not have what you need to form complete protein structures. Add beans and you'll be all set there, but you're still going to be nutritionally deficient if you don't eat nutritionally dense foods.
