    Cosmic Nourishment 15th Jun 17 at 2:51 PM
    I would definitely give this diet ago, what with being a very spiritual person and in tune with the cosmos and whatnot, but unfortunately I like cake too much.

    I can just imagine the camera crew from 'Secret Eaters' following these two around and catching them scoffing mars bars in garage forecourts

    Do you know, I'm going to say something I've never said in a post before.

    What a load of tosh!

    So she ate nothing at all for the whole nine months she was pregnant?
    Yeah, right.

    And talk about STBO.......

    Gosh! I'd never have guessed that not eating would slash my food bills!

    ......and surprise, surprise, he runs courses in Breatharianism! What wonderful free publicity!

    (I could understand it if they ate a couple of big platefuls of fruit and vegetables three times a week, but only one piece of fruit three times a week for nine years? Nah! I don't buy it.)

    I do recall a woman on tv a few years ago who, IIRC, claimed not to eat or drink but lived instead by 'divine prana'. Sadly the programme also showed people following her example and getting very ill as a result.

    That's the worry..........it's giving licence to malnutrition at best and anorexia at worst.

    The not drinking is particularly worrying.

    Breatheren ???? Is that a religion ?
    Well i suppose if your belief is strong enough, anything can happen.
    There are people on here that will tell you, Jesus fed a multitude with a couple of fish and a loaf.
