Food is Red

Hi I am confused on why my food is at 5.6M yet it is red at the top left of the screen.  When I go to my Training tab there is a message that says "food consumption exceeds production" so I assumed that I needed more farms.  I now have 6 level 7 farms, 1 level 8 farms, and 1 level 8 that is in the process of updating to level 9.  My soldiers total around 8000.  What am I missing?

Your food production is too low cause you have too many troops. Best bet is to create a secondary account for banking your food and keep a 24/7 shield on it. To get out of red you will have to allocate skill points into food production and food consumption reduction and create the best food producing gear that you can and insert food production gems into them.

My food is also in the red, but my calcs show I am making over 1300 more than I could be using...that is assuming that the farm produce is per hour as are the troops?

I read that even if you went 0 on food you wont lose your army it will just be harder for you to upgrade and research stuff(because you would have to loot food than upgrade/research)

Your troops won't die if you have zero (or red) food. Build more farms or yield more resources may help you.

Go out and attack someone - you are bound to lose some troops and you could get good plunder.

Where do you see how much food your troops use? Where is the red (or not)?

My troops are no where near in the range that would eat the food I have. My vault is not big enough. It is ot big enough to hold the other resources, but only food shows as red. I have more food than anything else. I think it is a vault capacity thing.

Armor bonuses work the best for Cheaper.  Have 2 sets.  1 for Construction the other for Combat.
