    Uhhh the first thing you got wrong was amino acids. As an adult there are only 8 amino acids necessary to consume. The body produces the rest of them from a sufficient quantity of these 8 EAAs.. Big face palm hearing that as a nutrition nerd.

    Most stores have generators so you could use that on the freezers to save veggies if not there’s also huge portable hookup battery’s by the hardware section you could connect a small cooler too

    1:29 now think of all the workers who have to put it away. I am one of those people, And we do it all before the store opens up again. And the amount of product is nuts. Then think about around crismistmas time or any holiday. So next time you decide you don't want somethin put it back ware you found it. Or we have to Deal with it wall Putin away the product. Thanks

    I love this theory, but you also left out hydroponics. You don’t need soil abs you can make your own nutrients using food waste and vitamins. All you would need it water and you can have a much more varied food source that just mushrooms and potatoes.

    Before i watch the video I'm just saying what i think is that there's some food you cant cook or you cant wash so i think you cant last that long

  • 0Erag0n

    i can go 2-3 days without eating and only eat once per day. so easy to expand this by 2times..

    OMG I couldn’t imagine how anyone could calculate the true stock age of a grocery store as from day to day the quantities of each product vary. One day 20% of the items could be completely out of stock the next day 9% but 7% of the other items re down to half or single item left of the shelves.

    MatPat, I just asked Evan if I could pitch this theory as a movie one day. Do I have permission to include the Theorista storyline, except maybe with a different name?

    If u would be living in a supermarket u wouldn't survive cause the building might mold or crumble and the dates on the food on the shelfs with mold there dates would go 4 times faster to bacteria

    Not to be rude and I know these theory's are opinion based and for fun, but this one is flawed. Your food logic is sounds very accurate and there's nothing flawed in that but, you didn't accountant for hygiene. Showering, washing, and keeping bacteria away from you is important to your survival. So, if this Evan is gonna survive for around 63 years, he'll need to find a way to keep diseases away.

  • Spaceman.

    I dont know if you would do this but how about how many people died in all wars in history combined? make it saucy and throw in how much food war has cost humans and how much and what has been consumed.

    It's 2052. The end times are upon us. I've had to watch as all my loved ones are slaughtered around me. I'm running through the smoke and rubble looking for anywhere to hide from my imminent demise. A large shape begins to appear through the haze. Getting closer, I'm hit with a wave of relief as I see the local grocery store is still standing. Miraculously the store seems untouched and I seal the doors behind me. Wasting no time I frantically start smoking and curing meats, dehydrating vegetables, and preparing compost for my mushroom farm. No time to grieve the lost when there's meats to smoke. Society may be gone but I still have mushrooms to take care of

  • Glam

    Guessing Evan is mid 20's, he would be late 80's by the time the food would theoretically run out. He could always die of natural causes before then

    Plot twist: Theorista was a mad scientist staging the invasion, and was the one to tell Evan to stay inside Stater Bros. as a rendezvous trying to find out the maximum length of time you can live inside a grocery store. Extra Plot Twist: Theorista was Matpat this whole time. Matpat in our current timeline was so unable, and tired trying to find out the exact maximum time before you would starve to death, so he resorted to creating a time machine called the "Epic" from his past research on a 10 year old video on time travel from the game "Chrono Trigger" To conclude his research in an alternate timeline, where then he can bring his studies back to our timeline to then make this video here. On this channel. Yes. Because Evan left a comment on Matpats channel, he has created a catastrophe in a whole other universe.
