    Anyone have any idea how long a human can live on 1 egg (and water) a day? No other food at all. Odd question, I know :).

    Hard question to answer. It depends on the individual's metabolism and their fat stores. 1 egg is about 80 calories. Average number of calories a person needs is 2,000 a day. You experience malnutrition at less than 1,200 calories a day.
