Diet and nutrition refers to two things: 1) the types of foods and liquids that you habitually ingest, and drink and 2) the provision of food to nourish cells of the human body through consuming, absorbing, and using nutrients to support life. In general, human beings can survive up to eight weeks without food, depending on their stored body fat and muscle mass. Survival without water, however, is limited to three or four days.
