I don't think I've gone more than maybe 10-12 hours without eating...I get headaches when I'm hungry and can't sleep at all when I'm hungry so I have to eat.

the distance between breakfast and lunch...

actually possibly overnight is the longest I go without eating. (say dinner at 6 followed by breakfast at 8).

so 14 hours is easy... that said I can happily skip meals in a day like breakfast and lunc so I could go 24 hours foodless without even thinking about it.

1 day with no food, has been my longest, i mean i have gone 2.5 days with eating very small amount of food, like a little less than a normal meal, but that doesn't count, so 1 day

I was looking through some of my mom's work papers, and it said a study showed that patients would rather experience pain after surgery than vomiting.

I don't like eating much, because my stomach just bloats up whenever I eat anything! It feels horrible.

I like to eat a lot, but I like to stay skinnyish. Not have to worry about fat and all that. I am 6'3", about 168lbs, and like 3-6% fat, lol. People dont believe me on my weight when they look at me, but its cause there is like 0 fat.
I said something about it once, and my friend said something about her being 15% fat, and she is really skinny, and I was like, "you are a girl though." And she is like, "What's that supposed to mean?" And I say, "Well, if you dont have a any fat, you dont have any this, or this" You can fill in the "this," lol.

Haha, nuts man.

I think the longest for me might be.. 30 hours I guess. I was sick. I never skip a meal unless I ate too much earlier.

I've never gone more than 2 meals w/o eating. I could probably go more, but have no reason to. I'm skinny anyway and have no way to gain fat (I eat a lot of cookies and other unhealthy snacks), so if I go too long w/o eating I'll probably shrivel up, lol.

My dad went for almost a week, I think 5 or 6 days. He's got a few pounds on him, so he needed to do it to cleanse his body and lose some of his fat.
