How long does it take for someone to die of starvation?
I'm writing a story and one of my characters die from starvation (with water). Here are some details about the character:
-Adult
-Female
-Average health
-Average height
-Average weight
I want to make the story as accurate as possible so any help would be greatly appreciated. I've heard about a month, but I'm assuming it depends on various things. Also, what are some of the symptoms along the way? So far I have the character 5 days without food. What would she be experiencing by this point? Again, any help would be great. Thanks!
