    Probably a week at most (once you start resorting to that) - the stuff we excrete does contain nutrients that we didn't absorb first time

    You couldn't survive very long by eating your own feces directly, but you could build a greenhouse, and use your feces as compost. Of course, then you'd need the seeds for something. If you're in a desert, maybe you could try growing an edible cactus if you can identify one? Of course, you should really just carry a bag of potato seeds on your person at all times, ready for exactly this kind of situation
    Potato... seeds? Do they even exist?

    I guess a few days, after that you'll be too sick to stomach your own faeces and nutriotionally by then it will be useless.
