What happens if we don’t eat food for one week? It sounds like you know this has been done before.

What will happen if we don’t eat food for one week? It sounds like you might be tnking about trying this.

.What would happen if we don’t eat food for one week ?It sounds like you are only asking hypothetically.


I would delete the word food, and change the word 'one' to 'a'.

eg What happens if we don’t eat for a week?
