A couple who call themselves “breatharians” have claimed that they survive mostly without eating food, and barely eat in a week, at most three times and that too during social gatherings. Many disbelieve their claim, but the duo claim that they have maintained a “food-free” lifestyles since 2008.
Camila Castello, 34, and Akahi Ricardo, 36, eat mainly three times a week and that too a piece of fruit or some vegetable broth at a time. The couple claim that they have forgotten what it feels like to be hungry and stated that Castello only ate five times throughout her first pregnancy and delivered a healthy child.
the couple claim that they survive on the “energy that exists in the universe and in themselves” and that they are sustained by “cosmic nourishment,” according to the Independent’s report.
“Humans can easily be without food, as long as they are the connected to the energy that exists in all things and through breathing,” Castello said.
Their claim has many doubting them as they have also stated that they survived without consuming any food for three years!
“For three years, Akahi and I didn’t eat anything at all and now we only eat occasionally like if we’re in a social situation or if I simply want to taste a fruit,” Castello said. “With my first child, I practiced a Breatharian pregnancy. Hunger was a foreign sensation to me so I fully lived on light and ate nothing.
“My blood tests during all three trimesters were impeccable and I gave birth to a healthy, baby boy,” she said. Castello added that she was ready to bring some changes to her food-free lifestyle when she became pregnant, however she climbs that she never felt hungry during her pregnancy.
“I didn’t feel the need or desire to eat solid food during the entire nine months and so I only ate five times, all of which were in social situations,” she said. “And I knew my son would be nourished enough by my love and this would allowed him to grow healthily in my womb.
“I went for regular pregnancy check-ups and my doctor confirmed the above average growth of a very healthy baby boy,” Castello claimed.
