Nutrition/Weight

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Here is a list of food organized by its nutrition/weight ratio. The idea is that, all other considerations being equal (such as other uses for food besides nutrition, etc.), it makes most sense to eat foods with a lower ratio first and hang on to food that gives a higher ratio to maximize weight efficiency.

V indicates vegetarian food
! indicates vegan food
