    Mythbusters should actually test that XD
    I think Gavin would die anyway. 30 Seconds before death, he wouldn't be able to eat and would probably be unconscious. Also, digestion would take much longer. Maybe if they gave him an IV drip...

    Hey, does Immersion only test video games? That should have been the series finale.
    PERMANENTLY.

    Sadly at that point of death from starvation your body has devoured its own internal fat and energy stores to the point where it begins to degrade your very organs :(

    If the body is on the verge of collapsing from hunger but the promise of food is tangible (like immediately available) I believe your mind could propel you onward. It's the Mind Over Matter (or in this case, reality) principle.

    However there's such a thing as diminishing returns. As I understand it, delusions and mirages are basically the result of the brain's functionality being impaired by dehydration, cold, heat or starvation. In the case of starvation they get worse and worse as nutrients to the brain deplete until the mind starts shutting off internal systems in order to conserve the core body organs; heart and brain.

    That's why people tend to die in their sleep if exposed to the aforementioned for too long. Their brain has basically shut them down.

    No he has a point here, because you don't just die of starvation, you eventually pass out then your body slowly starts shutting down system by system, trying to keep your heart pumping and to keep breathing until you die. the idea is that maybe someone will find and save you, because humans are social creatures, its a survival mechanic. and if right before you passed out, you saw food, then you would, most likely stay conscious long enough to get too it, eat it, and then pass out. unless someone found you though you would most likely die anyway, you'd just live a little longer

    Where is this guy throwing sandwiches that he can toss them that would prevent me from just picking it up and eating it? water? dog poop? lava? cactus?

    Gavin, that doesn't work. Starving to death is when you don't eat anything for a really long time and your body runs out of nutrients to run off. The nutrients you get out of food are the human equivalent to gasoline to a car.
