"Next I want you to take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, dried millet and spelt, and mix them in a bowl to make a flat bread. This is your food ration for the 390 days you lie on your side.
Measure out about half a pound for each day and eat it on schedule.
Also measure out your daily ration of about a pint of water and drink it on schedule.
