This week we find out how long you could survive by just eating your own severed limbs, plus we search for synchrony in menstrual cycles.
I have read hunger strikers can live 50-70 days sometimes longer, so if you started self cannibalisation after this time, then only eat your limbs which would feed you for another 30-40 days, then perhaps last another 30 days after this as your body breaks down your internal organs.
In a sense, with starvation, your body begins to reabsorb the nutrients stored in the tissues. So, with a month of starvation, one would look quite emaciated. And, at that time, there would be very little meat left on the bones. Perhaps only enough left for a little stew.
I know which bit I'd start on. It doesn't get a whole lot of use these days anyway.
