Just over a month. Jesus fasted for 40 days, so at least that, depending on your metabolism, size, health, etc.

Best Answer

Many variables but based upon your general health, which gender you are (women last longer without calories), how much body fat you are carrying, how 'large' a person you are (meaning height and general build), and most importantly how much physical activity you do (more activity means more calories burnt means more demand on your body's internal organs means you die quicker). Approximately 3 - 5 weeks for an average adult is the numbers I recall from my studies in human physiology. However, understand that you will be doing permanent damage prior to 'death', thus you really should never 'fast' more than 48 - 72 hours.

well, if you are on the heavy side you can last longer then if you are on the thin side. somewhere in the area of 6-10 weeks.

so if you're planning a trip out to the middle of a desert where there is a chance you could be stranded with no water... gain a bunch of weight before you go on your trip!!
