There is a reason after all why our bodies crave fat and sugar above all else and will store them as fat as rapidly as possible. If you're not careful in how you starve your body will even start breaking down its own muscle before it goes after its fat reserves.

Many variables here.
Initial condition of the starving. Obese people have more fat reserves. Those who are used to fasting.may last longer.imho
Age. Very old and very young will die first.
Health. Medical problems like diabetes, metabolic disorders, thyroid problem will die before healthy people.
Rescourcfullness. What food can they glean from the environment? Those who have more food in the pantry, have dumpsters, find fresh roadkill's, know what berries or plants are edible in landscaping,etc will have more food available.
Season. More will die in winter as it takes more calories to stay warm.
How many people are on your rescources. More people eating depletes rescources faster.
Ration ratios. Stretching rations. If you eat more than needed rations deplete faster. So many variables could change the situation.
