Subject says it all. Why I asked this, I'm hungry and I haven't ate since last night at 5.

Thanks Sim!

To death, you mean?

well, if you are takng water then quite some time. Bobby Sands laster for about 70 days before he died.

But other complications will set in way before then, some irreversable.

guiness book of records - the world record for without food AND water is 15 days, when a motorist was placed in a police holding cell and forgotten about. This was in Austria

There's a lesson to be learned here.

Always pay your parking fines and speeding tickets in Austria !

They should include it in the highway code !

Starving is not the way I intend leaving this world! I love good food! Something I do not intend giving up! LOL..
