I think that this woman is very foolish. I think she has been brain-washed. I think that by doing this...it makes her feel special and apart from
the crowd...she so desperately wants attention and approval.
Can't think of a better way to prove the whole group as crazies. When she dies in 2 months from starvation they will have their answer as to whether
you can live on "prana". Then they can stop peddling this ridiculous kind of thinking.
Navenna Shine is calling her experiment “Living on Light.”
Before its over her experiment will be called "Headed toward the light"
We will be reading about her in the papers one day when she ends up the same way that Christopher McCandless from the movie "Into The Wild". These
people that go out into the wild and think they are just gonna survive off of the basics with no proper training or knowledge are in fact committing a
slow and very painful form of suicide.
I have immense respect for the ideals of people such as McCandless but without proper training they are doomed before they even start. This woman
expecting to live off of nothing but water and sunlight needs a good mental evaluation because there is no way that she will survive and any rational
person should be aware of that.

I love the name of the group though...the Breatharians
I recall reading about another "breatharian", Jasmuheen, some time back.
She shares a house with her non-breatharian husband, so there's plenty of food around the house.
And she's also been seen to eat food, but she claims that is just for entertainment purposes occasionaly, because the taste is still something she
likes to experience every once in a while.
Most seem to think she's just a fraud though.
Edit - Here's an expose where she tries to be a breatharian, under test, and fails dismally...

Past the naysayers, there is a way to not eat or drink for 6 months.
If she pumps her intestines full of nutrients, calling it a cleanse or a colonic, she can get away with her claims.
The way she self judges her weight loss and size changes makes her sound like she has an eating disorder and is doing the experiment so she can starve
herself without interference, not for sheer enjoyment of eating sun rays. Maybe when she gets to 100 pounds she will quit.
The practice is called "Sungazing" and has been used for centuries. The documentary Channel aired a documentary about it called "Eat the Sun' a
while back that was very interesting. It has a segment and interview with Wiley Brooks (of /www.breatharian.com fame) who deadlifted 1100 lbs, nearly
ten times his own weight, on the show "That's Incredible!". Even though he seems like a crackpot on his website that doesn't diminish his
amazing feat of strength which he attributed to sungazing and fasting If you are interested on how to 'Sungaze' the instructions on the process
can be found here: www.solarhealing.com...
When it comes to Hindu Spiritualism I will just about believe any crazy thing someone tells me.
Those people, the monks, have bonafide super powers.
Anyone see the video where the guys sat in a 50° air conditioned room wrapped in wet sheets and see them literally steam dry those sheets?
Even more incredible when one notes that their metabolic processes slowed down by 60% while doing so. It flies in the face of known medical science.
Under normal circumstances, the hotter your body gets the harder your metabolism works.
Again, I wouldn't write this off.
But this is ATS. If this woman does this, most here will say the entire study was a sham.
I've heard about this. Fruitarians also 'bask in the sun' for nutrients although they eat up to 30 pounds of fruit in one sitting.
The fact this lady has lost 20 pounds in only 30 days shows me she is starving- not thriving. It's not sustainable and I challenge anyone who claims
to have done this for years to be sequestered in a scientific setting and monitored 24/7. Those who have done such a thing before always get caught
sneaking in food or suffer from starvation.
The "suneating" garbage has been fully debunked on the forum before. (By yours truly). If it's a naive person who is seriously misdirected I
applaud them for putting their money where their eyes mouth is. But I truly hope they see their error in judgement before anything
serious happens to them.
If its another charlatan I just hope they are caught sneaking cheese danishes like the last group of suneaters were. Or was in sandwiches from the
wife. I can remember. "But the sandwich was made of sun rays and light!"
There was one who led a group of people into doing this practice, although she herself was eating while a bunch of her followers died. Can't remember
exactly but I think she ended up with criminal charges...
