    Loosely follow "DrNewcenstein's Non-Confrontational 5 & 7 Day Survivor Guide for Dead Rising" which can be found here

    That guide will enable you to get all of the static food with minimal confrontations.

    Use Hoddans Survival tool, a mirror of which can be found here

    Use it to check off the food as you collect it, and keep easy track of the in game time (you don't have a watch in infinity mode). By selecting food from the drop down box, you can see how many health blocks you will gain from consuming it (remember to to put a tick next to the health books you collected).

    Additionally, you can see which psychopaths and survivors are active in what location at what time and tweak the Non-Confrontational guide accordingly. The psychopaths in particular give out huge amounts of food, so even if you take a beating from them, the reward should far outweigh it.

    Lastly, use the dead rising alarm timer by dyxtra, which can be found here

    I would advise setting a conservative time to ensure you have the food ready and don't die a silly death. You could also use a wireless controller, which should switch off with plenty of time to spare, BUT ONLY IF you are at full health when you put the controller down!

    This achievement will take 10 hours of real time to obtain, there is no way to save, but you can pause.
    Needless to say, once you have invested ten hours to get this achievement, you might as well carry on a little longer and get the achievement for surviving seven days.

    I just wanted to share this great little tool for this achievement, it keeps a clock for you, and lets you know where food in various areas are,as well as where psychos and survivors are at the current time, and what food they carry.

    If anyone is going specifically just for this achievement. Then there is exactly 5 days worth of food in the mall whilst carrying the 3 health books.

    Just go around and collect all the food and the achievement is yours!
