A Horrible Proposal

How long would it take for the world's population to be reduced to a single person if people suddenly became exclusively cannibals (only ate other people)?

Assume somebody is dead the instant they begin being consumed, assume everybody is an average person and eats a maintenance diet of 1800kcal/day, assume the caloric content of a person is 77,000 kcal (a number I took from yahoo answers, if you have a better estimate, use that)

This isn't homework I'm just curious and I'm not sure I can figure out how to do the math
