Interestingly, Ghostdancer and I just had a long conversation about that. What seems fair is "LFP Reserve [2/level]," where you get to start at -[LFP Reserve] instead of 0. So if you have LFP Reserve 5 [10], you start with LFP -5 instead of LFP 0, which means the first 5 LFP you accumulate have no effect.

That said, I'm not sure if this is ever going to make it into an ATE book, only because it seems really meta to me. But if anyone wants to use it, the price seems right. (We worked out that "Immunity to LFP" was just Doesn't Eat or Drink + Doesn't Sleep, for 30 points, and GURPS generally equates a +15 bonus with Immunity in situations where, say, an ability can ignore immunities.)
