I wonder if he'll allow himself to be studied for an extended period?

I believe this is possible, although not everyone would be able to do it. I think it's a state of mind to a large extent.

I call shenanigans! Unless the water contains enough calories, bacteria or algae perhaps, there is no way this is true. Unless this guy has some sort of regenerating internal organs which his body continually feeds off then his claim is false. Maybe he tried it at one time, his brain was devoured and now he just lives in his own little fantasy world. Poor parenting too if all they fed their kids was water after he was born. Complete lunacy!

I don't see how this is possible. His basal metabolic rate has to be at least 1000 cal per day. The water must be laden with some organic materials or he would simply consume himself.

I have trouble with this too.

Apparently it isn't working very well for this guy at 22:

"he moved to Shenzhen, Guangdong Province to work as a manual laborer, but his weak body and frail constitution failed him time and again"

I'd be curious to see what he looks like on the outside and inside.

I think that's a reasonable request. There's no nutrition in either of those items, so you are just as miraculous as Chinese chappy :lol:

I guess his best bet would be to become a monk. Sounds as if he's very advanced spiritually if what he says is true.

Its not about the gain, its all about breaking the limits of the human body and mind.

I think it's all about him getting his 15 minutes...you can't live off of 0 calories...unless he has an Arc reactor like Ironman.

Didn't they prove another man who claimed to live off of hardly anything a fake several months ago?

You need calories just for basic internal processes, like breathing and brain function. That's not to mention the need for vital vitamins and nutrients from food. :hmm:

What a pile of crap!

I remember hearing of an American woman who made similar claims, She was a fraud and created all sorts of issues for the 'gullible' people that tried to followed her example.

Stories like this appear every now and then and they disappear just as quickly once the claim is put to the test.
