Depends on how healthy you are, I would say maybe and average of a week or two, maybe longer if you have water.

I believe you could go about two weeks, but if you have no water whatsoever then you wouldn't even make it to two weeks.

a person can live without eating for 63 days. he just needs 2 drink water 4 63 days. but it will make us very weak.

As far as I know, in extreme cases and starting with a good physical shape it is possible to survive without any food for about 6 months ... but is not possible to survive longer than 3 days without water. What can our friends from India contribute to this question? I am really curious.

I believe how many days a person can live without eating depends on their current body size. I could probably live for quite a while! lol What is important to remember is that a person cannot live long without water, and some of the water we consume comes from our food. One should also consider the health risks associated with not eating.
