How Long Can a Person Survive Without Food?
“The duration of survival without food is greatly influenced by factors such as body weight, genetic variation, other health considerations and, most importantly, the presence or absence of dehydration. For total starvation in healthy individuals receiving adequate hydration, reliable data on survival are hard to obtain.”

The Psychology of Hunger
“In November 1944, 36 young men took up residence in the corridors and rooms of the University of Minnesota football stadium. They were not members of the football team. Rather, they were volunteers preparing for a nearly yearlong experiment on the psychological and physiological effects of starvation. Known as the Minnesota Starvation Experiment, the study was a project of the newly established Laboratory of Physiological Hygiene at the University of Minnesota, an interdisciplinary research institution with an emphasis on nutrition and human biology.”

  1. I've been on a 1500 calorie diet for years and haven't had any of these issues. I also have plenty of energy to work out six days a week.

  2. So like, what if you just dont want to eat, but your really hungry even though there is plenty of food available

  3. I don’t necessarily want to starve myself but I really don’t think we need as many calories as they say we do. I feel like I’m about to pass out eating the recommended amount or even close!

  4. I have a genetic mutation which enhance my metabolism faster than any normal person already, but I take medication that speeds it up even more, I have to constantly eat every couple hours or so. And I have to eat basically between triple to quintuple the amount of anyone else. But sometimes I honestly wonder (with how quickly my metabolism works), how fast I would start to basically starve to death. I already am close to it seeming how I don’t make near enough money to keep up with my metabolism and everything else, I’ve managed to pass out twice in the past 3 years from lack of food. Everyday I get dizzy spells, disorientation, and lightheaded. And it doesn’t help when I have a sever health conditions making the only type of “physical” job I can do is delivery. But my car has no AC. And I have insomnia and rn I haven’t slept in 3 days, and same with eating. I feel like I will pass out any second but, I think my insomnia is making it to where I’m not rn.
