Food level indicates the amount of hunger the player has ranging from 99-100 (Not hungry) to 0 (starving).
Food level range will only harm the player after reaching a 0 value making health slowly depletes until the player dies or eats again.
Different types of food will replenish your food level depending on the nourishing properties, for example, a strawberry will replenish 5 food points but a can of condensed milk will replenish 75 points.
Sickness, perks and medicine can affect your food status either raising, lowering or making it deplete faster.
A character without illnesses or perks will see their food level going down by 1 every 30 minutes (2/hour) in Easy and Normal mode, and 1 every 25 minutes (2.4/hour) in Hard mode.
