DM – One woman is in week five of living on nothing but water as part of an extreme self-experiment. Navenna Shine, 65, from Seattle, stopped eating on May 3 in a bid to explore breatharianism – the concept that food is not necessary and sunlight provides all of the nourishment the body needs. She has been detailing her experience via Facebook and YouTube. In her most recent video entry she claims she feels ‘very well’ and only occasionally gets ‘twinges of what feels like hunger’. Around her small home she has set up eight cameras to track her progress. These have also been put in place to ensure she doesn’t sneak any snacks. While most people plan their day around their meals, Ms Shine, confined to the same four walls, fills her time with movies, exercise and sleep. The last day she ate solid food was on April 30. She then embarked on a three-day juice cleanse and underwent colonics in preparation for the prolonged fast. She admits that her energy levels have decreased as the weeks have gone on. ‘Today I found exercise kind of tiring . . . I need to lie down afterwards, it’s like my blood sugar does something,’ she wrote on May 31. And at the beginning of this week she said she had a couple of ‘rough days’ where she ‘felt weak and ‘threw up bile’.
Other possible headlines could’ve included “Does This Look Like The Face Of An Idiot Who Is About To Die Of Starvation?” or “Does This Look Like The Face Of A Lady Who Can’t Tan?” Seriously, THIS is the face of a woman who has only eaten sun rays in over a month? I’d expect the bitch to look like Tan Mom by now.
Gotta love the part where she claims to still experience “twinges of what feels like hunger” to go along with her random bile puking yet still believes her water and sunlight theory is correct. Hey, dummy, those twinges ARE hunger. Actually real-life starving hunger. And I don’t know what the bile barf part is about exactly but I’m sure it’s a product of your ongoing starvation and a sign of your impending death. But hey this is America. You wanna eat only sunshine for five weeks while throwing up liver fluids and mucus you go ahead and eat only sunshine for five weeks while throwing up living fluids and mucus.
