    really long. you can last up to hundreds of days without eating. there are people who go on fasts and hunger strikes. so for those who say you can only live a few weeks are lying or are uneducated about the subject, i read many books on fasting and there are christians who fast for 40days. a lady on you tube says she fasted for 123days there are fasting videos on youtube, and this guy easily went 21 days wihtout eating and has improved health cause it rids the toxins out of your body. a fast is what we need, what i need. but why do you think religious poeple fast? why would their god want to do something harmful to them right? the answer is you can last longer than you think while not eating. so u can last up to 75days at least or even 100-200 days without eating. it depends also on how healhty or fat or skinny you are. i hope this helps.

    Source(s): you can e-mail me if you want. i know alot about fasting and not eating.

    surely, the comparable problem that happens with a ineffective physique will ensue with a stay man or woman. the exterior will soak up the water and swell to a ingredient, yet at last the flesh will exchange into so saturated which you would be able to surely pull it off of the bone with little or no attempt while they have been submerged for that length of time. it might take longer than an afternoon to be effective in this ingredient, even with the incontrovertible fact that that is going to ensue.

    Religious ascetics routinely do 40 day fasts. You go until hunger pangs set in. Not just the cramps of an empty stomach, but at that point where the body starts to consume muscle tissue to stay alive.
