Question: What will happen if someone goes a week without food!?
im wondering this for some reason well you guys are the experts tell me :DWww@Answer-Health@Com

Science says we can safely go only 3 days without water or food and only five days safely with water but without food!. I have passed out before from going only three days without food and I was even drinking calorie filled juices! And It was while I was working and I actually put myself and my co workers and friends in a very dangerous position when I fainted!. imagine if I were behind the wheel!.

If you have no food or nutrition at all, your body will go into ketoacidosis!. This leaves the muscle and liver cells unable to use glucose (sugar) in the blood as fuel causing fat to break down and convert to ketones!. The body is literally consuming the muscle, fat & liver cells for it's fuel!. People fast for short periods of times!. Some with water or with different types of liquids!. You can live without food for 2 or 3 weeks, but can only go a short time a week maybe, without water, because your kidneys will shut down!.

Early Signs, Symptoms Of ketoacidosis:
very tired and sleepy
great thirst
frequent urination
dry skin and tongue
leg cramps
fruity odor to the breath*
upset stomach*

Late symptoms
shortness of breath
sunken eyeballs
very high blood sugars
rapid pulse
rapid breathing
low blood pressure
unresponsiveness, coma

Mostly you get hungry!. Then your metabolism slows down as your body prepares for a long go without food!. You probably won't move around much, and your body temperature could drop!. You won't feel very good at all!. If you're hypoglycemic, there's no guarantee that you'll make it through the week!.
On average, it takes about two or three weeks to starve to death!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I think it would really depend on your health status and how heavy you are!. I don't know if this is a question out of curiosity or you want to go on a fast to lose weight or some other reason!. As a healthy but overweight teen I quit eating for 8 days, except for diet soda and water!. I lost 20 lbs!. and as soon as I went back to eating, I quickly regained it!. It's old but it's true, the best way to lose weight is to eat healthy foods, space your eating out throughout the day, don't eat before bed, and get regular exercise!. It only took me 20 years to figure this out!. Www@Answer-Health@Com

Nothing will happen to you!. Just drink a lot of water and you will be fine if not better then fine!. Fasting for 1 week often rids the body of toxins and gives it the opportunity to cleanse and heal itself!. People have done it for ages!. Remember Jesus!? He fasted for 40 days!.
Recent time, that crazy magic guy David blane fasted for 39 or so days in London!.
But for 1 week!? Nothing will happen!. 1 week without water though and that could kill you!. Www@Answer-Health@Com
