I have gone without food and drinks for 3 and half days and even crave to continue. It was God who gave me the strength to do it. The power of flesh will fail you if you depend on that. After the prayers I discover that I had more temptation of the flesh than before I started. But God is still my strength.

WEBDEZZI    So you don't believe the Biblical account that Moses and Jesus did it for 40 days and nights? Even queen Esther in the Bible did it 3 days without food and drinks still no invitation for ulcer, etc. Faithless generation.

Well depends.

I think everyone should make sure that they are healthy before embarking on such journey. Especially if you have diabetes. wink wink

Food is one of the cravings of the flesh apart from sex.Once you conquer it ,you conquer all things. Trace all your desires,aspirations and ambitions,they are all indirectly linked to food.
true,bcus for one to achieve spiritual upliftment to the highest level u need to be fasting a lot and also avoids sex.
Re: How Long Can You Go Without Food (practical Experience) by billion11: 8:11pm On Feb 01, 2012
It depends on how much fat you have when you begin and if you need to do physical work. smiley

I would guess 7-40 days.

i can go for 24 hours max, any extension can lead to error and cause my major body modules to begin shutting down.

From my own experience, I have personally gone 2days (48 hours) without food although I was taking excessive amounts of water during that period. But from what av read, the human body can live for months without solid food as long as it takes in water.u might lose a lot of weight and end up looking malnurished but u would survive. Water is the main thing the body needs and all foods we eat are about 70% water anyway.I remember 50 cent once went on a fluid diet for a film he was acting. It lasted 3 months and all he took in that time was liquid matter and ran on a tredmill 3 hours each day. He lost an incredible amount of weight at the end of the programme but he sure as hell still alive today.
Re: How Long Can You Go Without Food (practical Experience) by GreatDane(m): 10:27pm On Feb 01, 2012
I went about 10 days on a liquid diet and had to get off of it due to massive fatigue from it

@ OP

Please be careful with what you are doing, I'm glad that you have people who are checking up on you who are close by and your mum is a medic, but there are still risks. I hope you guys have a back up plan for your eventual feeding (i.e liquidised or intravenous) because in the worst case scenario if you leave it too late you could be too weak/unable to even physically eat when you decide to you've had enough of your experiment.

Another important consideration: try not to overcompensate your hunger by drinking too much water as too much water consumption can also be fatal.

They say that the human body can go on average a maximum of 3 weeks without any food and only about 3 days without any water, but personally I have only ever tried to go about 2-3 days without food, as I love food too much and I am fortunate enough to not be without smiley. Good luck in your endeavours!

OP: I would love to read your conclusion on this poverty case study that you are working on.

Do you know how many children go to school hungry ? and when they get to school, the teacher will beat them for no reason, or a silly senior will punish them
Re: How Long Can You Go Without Food (practical Experience) by Ranoscky(m): 7:05am On Feb 02, 2012
Op, u dey try oo! As fo Rano, atleast, 2days is ok!
Re: How Long Can You Go Without Food (practical Experience) by sovpounds(m): 7:48am On Feb 02, 2012
I have endured 4 days without food and water. I find it difficult to abstain from food and drink water. Its much easier for me to abstain from both.
