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


Why would he need the time of day?  It's not like he's going to be late for dinner.

He didn't mention the 3 milkshakes he drinks every day. See, that's drinking, not eating. The guy's probably a lawyer.

My guess is he's drinking his calories. And we all know frappachino doesn't count as food.

I've done that, a 1000 calories a day, on Seattle Suttons but you are supposed to add some dairy to that.

meat0918: miniflea: nmrsnr: 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.

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?

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?


Different person I think, and India seems prone to this sort of thing.  I never cease to be amused by the fact frauds like this not only claim rigorous scientific observation interferes with their magic powers, but that this argument actually appears to convince believers.

There was also some monk who claimed, in addition to never eating, that he didn't have to drink water either.  He did, though, bathe himself in a fashion that appeared to allow him to take several swallows of water.

1200 is definitely doable. I usually hover in the 1100-1400 range. I just need to throw in some splurge days every once in a while.

Xanadone: drewlander: Calories come from light?   Maybe Bud Light.

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


So he gets calories from a particle of light, and from light?  Doesn't sound like he knows much about photons or light; not that he had any credibility to begin with.

Related to "not eating", I do know someone who didn't eat for 3 years.  They had a gastric bypass surgery that was completely jacked up.  The surgeon didn't staple his stomach closed entirely.  They damaged nerves in the stomach that help with peristalsis, forcing him to sit up and use gravity to process any nourishment.  He lived off vitamin b injections, sub-lingual vitamins and crappy beer for 3 years before another surgeon opened him back up to repair everything the first surgeon screwed up. The first 6 months he lost 200 lbs, but had major problems with eating. Once he started the beer and vitamins diet he gained 70 lbs over a couple years.   Since the most recent surgery he can eat regular food again in small portions. True story!

Due to a friend who suggested it as a "diet" (and said she was doing the same thing, too), I actually lived on nothing but water, Tab and cigarettes for nearly three months one summer when I was a teenager. Ended up losing 35 pounds.

Then, of course, as you'd expect, I got sick (mono) and was laid up in bed for several weeks. I found out my friend had been forced to eat dinner every night (we were just learning about anorexia's existence back then, but luckily for her she had parents who were clued in), and I gave up the "diet."

You can survive without food?  Fine.  Prove it.  Get some scientists to set up a test lab for you to live in and you will be denied food.  You will be locked in and the only one who will be able to unlock the door is yourself. 

Somehow, though, I think that if asked to prove it in a laboratory setting that he would come up with some excuse as to why he could not do this.

Kudos on the learning experience , but when does one finally reach the point of punching someone in the shnozz and asking "What the fark was that all about?" That's like... Nutritional beating abuse.

Well, he does claim that he gets his nourishment from wind, sun, and air. So he'd back out on that test. But even if you prepared a special enclosure for him with all the natural sunlight, fresh air, and wind he can handle, he'd probably make some excuse about how it's "unnatural" in some way. But I say we do the only thing we really should do: get him the professional psychiatric help he desperately needs before his madness causes someone to die.

Well, if a crazy dude tells you that you can survive by not eating and you are stupid enough to listen to him and then you die, the world is probably better off without you.

So honestly I'm ok with this. I would happily contribute a few bucks to a kickstarter aimed at proving the validity of his claims in a controlled environment though.

mooseyfate: 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.


I'm pretty sure Randi categorically refuses such tests, for just that reason. It's one thing to prove a dowser can't do shiat, and quite another to allow someone to put themselves in mortal danger under your watch.
