Fixt.

Yeah, at this point any further reasons are superfluous.

I'd say watch them 24/7 for a month.

Methinks that they aren't needing toilet paper. Smile

In fact, that is one of the claims. Rolleyes

But then, breatharians are replete with amazing claims.

James Randi debunked Jasmuheen a decade ago.

What about that other Prahlad Jani mahterkrishnahairylarry guy in the Wiki link? They watched him for 2 weeks with no food, no water, no pee and no poop. The food business I can buy. Think I could probably survive a month or two without food, I mean all sort of flora and fauna can hibernate. And calorie restriction and intermittent fasting have even been shown to have beneficial metabolic effects. There are life extensionists who have been living on 500 kCals/day for years. And depending on how much stores you have in reserve to start with, it'll take a while before your body finishes eating itself. But the no water seems a stretch. Thought that was more like a 3 day and your dead thing. What do animals do for water when they hibernate? Must wake up every now and then and lick a leaf or suck a stone or something I'd imagine.

The two observations of Jani (2003 and 2010) were both done by Dr. Dr Sudhir Shah, who refused to allow skeptics who challenged the monitoring conditions as insufficient to participate in the observations. Jani was able to move out of the camera's observation range, and he gargled and bathed daily; there was no definitive way of determining how much water he ingested at these times. Neither observation record was submitted to any peer-reviewed journal for publication, and the observation team has refused to disclose all details of the observation periods.

Oh, please do.
But don't tell us when; see if we can figure out who it is.

I see. Still 2 weeks or even a month without food wouldn't surprise me. Hell I've fasted for a week. You stop getting hungry after like 3 days when your body starts eating itself. Fasting every other day, on the other hand, seems to extend life. Weird.
