I have one question about "I ate food like there was no more tomorrow."
Though I know "There is/was no more tomorrow" is the idiomatic expression for the case someone does something very fast, in large amounts and without thinking carefully, I would hope to hear from you following alternatives are
also acceptable or not:
1) I ate food as if (like) there would be no (more) 'tomorrow'.
2) I ate food as if (like) there would not come 'tomorrow'.
3) I ate food as if (like) there would not be 'tomorrow'.
4) I ate food as if (like) 'tomorrow' would not come.
I assume above 4 alternatives might be acceptable, because "would" as a past tense of "will" could be used in the "as if + indicative mood" clause.
Will appreciate, if you kindly explain which one is unacceptable with the reason (unidiomatic or ungrammatical).
Always thanking for your clarification,
