Hello,

I have known that there many people that have gone through hunger strikes. My question is how long can such a person survive if he does not eat or drink anything.

Thank you.

Hi,
First thing that you need to know is that your body can adapt to different kind of situation but in fact some people specially people you can reach a high level of meditation can live without food several days. However you must have water within a few days or you will die. Take care

Thank you
Well, while not having food, the body start using the calories stored in fats and muscles and this gives him more days to live over, yet he will not be in healthy conditions.
