    4 pints of whole milk (~1500kcal) is £1, surely you can find at least £1 a day? Or just, you know, borrow £20 or so off a friend?

    Did you apply for the loan properly? Try and get a job as one must eat now :eek:
    He would die before he gets paid unless it was cash in hand.

    If you can get a couple of quid together bags of rice are about 50p. You could get some pasta too. You could probably live off that for a week before you make yourself ill.

    Have you opened a student bank account? If you have one try and see if they'll give you an overdraft.

    Serious question.

    I applied late for Student Finance because of clearing - so they only gave me minimun loan and no grants. The loan only covers my accommodation so I have no food.

    I'm an overweight male, I have decent muscle mass too. How l long can I last without food before running into serious complications and what symptoms should I be wary of?

    Looking for part-time work meanwhile.
    Hunger strikers have lived 52 to 74 days, depending on their body composition on nothing but salt and water.

    Goodluck.

    Why are bottled water, apple juice and lemonade on your list?
