A person will usually be able to live about 4-6 weeks without food. However there has been some cases where prisoners has lived for as long as 76 days without food.

There is many other factors that decides how long a person will survive. A person with a lot of body fat will survive longer than a person with less body fat. The amount of muscles are also very important.
