22-year-old Ning Xuefa maintains that he has lived his whole life without eating a single scrap of food.
Ning claims that he drinks several liters of water each day but that he never eats any food at all, a fact that his father has backed him up on by confirming that he only ever drinks water. Generally a person is unable to survive without food for more than a few weeks.
"As a student, I would always attend school with a huge bottle of water, but I wouldn't ever touch food," said Ning. When he left school at 14 Ning became a manual laborer but was said to have experienced physical difficulties and fatigue as a result of his minimalistic diet.
"A 22-year-old man in Henan Province has managed to survive solely by drinking 15 kilograms of water a day - without ever eating a bite of food."
