Best Answer

The human body can go for an extended period of time without food (but not without water), especially if you have some body fat. People have gone for two weeks or more.

Note that is not safe, and it is not an effective method of dieting. Your body will consume its own muscles for energy, your metabolism will be altered, and there will be other problems.

AnswerBasically your body will find stuff e.g. muscle to survive off for a while. Then after eating EVERYTHING possible you will start to deteriorate. This is quite terrifying but I was anorexic for 6 years. Not eating is bad and will cause serious damage to your system.
