Not sure if this would qualify for a Randi prize, but ask if he'd be willing to prove it by living in a big brother-type house for a week.

Nice hair.

As exciting and improbable as that might well be, why would you want to go 5 years without food?

5 years without a nice steak?  No thanks.

(or, for others)

5 years without a nice salad?  No thanks.

Yeah. Randi had another one of these who was found sneaking off to Burger King.

Calories come from light?   Maybe Bud Light.

It would be nice if humans could photosynthesize sunlight into caloric energy.   It would be nice if humans had a basic grasp of science.

I'm sure this guy will attract a bunch of new age hippies and fellow scammers who will add "breatharian lifestyle" to their arsenal of alternative medicine bullshiat, like "Reiki healing", to be used to sucker desperate people.   I bet he's a psychic too.

Breatharianism is fraud, plain and simple. Amazing that people even give guys like this the time of day..

Bullshiat.

Whaaa real food makes me tired...it not the food bro it's the strain of your body attempting to hold up the 10 pounds of gel in your hair.

I recall reading about one if these guys in India who agreed to be closely observed for several months. They caught him sneaking off to eat.

I wonder what the angle is here. Seems to me that if these guys actually believed their nonsense they would starve to death, so they must all be deliberately faking. How do they make money?

I'm going to guess it was from the lack of eating...

ElLoco: Bullshiat.


This. Dude is full of shiat. Which it turns out is digested FOOD. Put him to a Randi-dized test for just the two months science says will kill someone, and come get me when they're loading what's left of his emancipated corpse in a body bag.
 
2013-06-27 01:40:18 PM  
The wind and vibrations were the result of someone farting in his face.

Emaciated, not emancipated. Stupid auto-correct.

If humans could photosynthesize like plants, even in an optimal situation in which we had full sun exposure, we'd only get a miniscule amount of our daily energy requirement.

We can only wish they'd attract more followers. Darwin's been fighting on an unfair playing field.

Was that the kid in India they swore never moved from his mediation, and they set up a secret thermal imaging camera from a distance (because this kid was behind a fence and otherwise protected from any that would try to disturb him) and caught him moving from the spot in the middle of the night, then the guys running the scam claimed he had to be moved to a more secure location because of external threats to his guru-ish person?

They haven't opened their energy gates because they are too busy starving and getting food. If only they took a few days to learn the proper meditation techniques... We would be able to stop world hunger in no time.

I find this guy more believable than an accountant I know who claims she only eats 1200 calories a day.

"Speaking on the show, dietician Leeann Weintraub said: "" 

Way to qualify it.  'Everything we believe?'  Look, I'm all for an open mind, but call bullshiat bullshiat.

"This lack of food is really concerning and problematic because it goes against everything we believe western medicine and nutritional science. doesn't hold up to scientific scrutiny and can be extremely dangerous for anyone to try and will kill anyone who 'succeeds' at following it."

Logically what is is saying is complete horseshiat. I have a hard time, though, understanding how a man can wake up one day and go "Today I will lie to the entire world."


Has to be something between them.

Perhaps he has a semi-permeable scalp, and is absorbing nutrition from hair products.

LARRY GROCE
"Junk Food Junkie"

You know I love that organic cooking
I always ask for more
And they call me Mr Natural
On down to the health food store
I only eat good sea salt
White sugar don't touch my lips
And my friends are always begging me
To take them on macrobiotic trips
Yes, they are

Oh, but at night I stake out my strong box
That I keep under lock and key
And I take it off to my closet
Where nobody else can see
I open that door so slowly
Take a peek up north and south
Then I pull out a Hostess Twinkie
And I pop it in my mouth

Yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

Well, at lunchtime you can always find me
At the Whole Earth Vitamin Bar
Just sucking on my plain white yogurt
From my hand thrown pottery jar
And sippin' a little hand pressed cider
With a carrot stick for dessert
And wiping my face in a natural way
On the sleeve of my peasant shirt
Oh, yeah

Ah, but when that clock strikes midnight
And I'm all by myself
I work that combination on my secret hideaway shelf
And I pull out some Fritos corn chips
Dr Pepper and an ole Moon Pie
Then I sit back in glorious expectation
Of a genuine junk food high

Oh yeah, in the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
Oh, but at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

My friends down at the commune
They think I'm pretty neat
Oh, I don't know nothing about arts and crafts
But I give 'em all something to eat
I'm a friend to old Euell Gibbons
And I only eat home grown spice
I got a John Keats autographed Grecian urn
Filled up with my brown rice
Yes, I do

Oh, folks but lately I hae been spotted
With a Big Mac on my breath
Stumbling into a Colonel Sanders
With a face as white as death
I'm afraid someday they'll find me
Just stretched out on my bed
With a handful of Pringles potato chips
And a Ding Dong by my head

In the daytime I'm Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I'm a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me

Not just light, friend.  According to TFA, "photons and light". (emphasis mine)
