Man claims to eat only once every three months

'Breatharian' Khai Ho maintains that he is able to survive for months at a time on little more than air and sunlight.
The 38-year-old, who ironically works as a pizza delivery man, claims that his unusual way of life has made him feel healthier, despite the fact that he apparently eats next to nothing at all.

Breatharianism is a very controversial practice because the idea of surviving without food or water is patently ridiculous - as humans we need both of these things or we will die.

Attempting it is dangerous and there is no scientific evidence to suggest that it can work. Many people have died attempting it while doctors and scientists alike have dismissed it as pseudoscience.

This begs the question therefore - what is the truth behind Khai's claims ?
"I have never really felt hunger and never took much interest in food as a child," he said. "My mum was always worried about me and still is. I could never really embrace that state of consciousness that I was after, until about four years ago when it became more serious."

"I was maybe eating every three or four days at first, but now I can go months without food or water and even then, only have a mint or so to take away any bitter taste in my mouth."

"It's an amazing feeling, I'm fully conscious of my mind and I've never felt so great."

"I'm fully aware of my surroundings. People think I'm crazy but incredible at the same time."

I think he is full of crap.† You have to eat food to live.† If you don't, your cells will begin to break down.† Type 1 Diabetes, the body produces no insulin.† Insulin is produced by the pancreas and is necessary to break foods down so they can be used as energy.† My BS meter is ticking far to the right!

I can remember some guy in the 70's who used to make the talk show circuit claiming the same thing.† (He also called himself a "breatharian.")† Then a witness saw him pigging out on fried chicken and ice cream.† I'd put my money on the witness.

Except when you use your Chi energy.

That's crap too.† The guy was living off his fat cells because he was ..very fat. Eventually, the body will use all the fat cells and then what?† I am well aware of chi...it has nothing to do with breathing air to† live.

After the fat cells, the body cannibalize's muscle tissue. After that you're dead.

I'm a skeptic so I'll take that as an invitation.† How do you propose that case supports breatharianism when the paper clearly states it was a controlled diet in order to achieve his ideal weight? † He was 207 kilos, which is considered grossly obese, so much so that he was ambulant. He couldn't carry his own weight. He was given suplements, vitamins and non caloric fluids. It was a heavily controlled and strictly observed life saving diet. He was not some dreadlocked hippie breathing air and absorbing light for sustenance. He was achieving an ideal weight through fasting. The paper states his... [More]
