    Instead thinking about the time you can survive without food, it could be worthwile to inform you about the eatable plants in your hiking area and the animals you can hunt there if need be. It’s correct, that you can survive longer without food than without water. But without food you will rapidly lost energy and get unimmunized after a while – even when you have water in your area.
