    Default How further can it go?

    Hello.

    A friend of mine has been on a meatless diet for 3 months.
    Can I say, 'I wonder, how further can it go' to mean how further will it be lasted?
    If not, how else would you say that?

    I would be grateful for any mistakes you might correct in the post.

    Thanks, Alex.

    Thanks, Alex.
    "How much longer are you going to stick to this diet" is one possibility.

    Many thanks.

    Can anyone think of a shorter question (like mine)?

    How long will it last?
    How long can this go on?
    How long can you keep it up?
