Will I double my size or disappear completely?

Neither, you would be essentially a closed system and would at every point have the same mass. You will however die sooner rather than later doing that.

You forgot to allow for excretion. He would gradually diminish in mass for a while before he eventually died.

Now if he ate himself while taking off from a conveyor belt... :stirthepot:

I see what you did there. you stop that.

I believe the term is auto-cannibalism? Might be wrong.

At any rate, your body consumes itself in times of needs, so there is no need to fillet oneself and grill it just to satiate your hunger needs. Its actually far more efficient to let your body do it internally than to consume it through the digestive tract. Our digestion system isn't that efficient.
