If weren’t aware of the term ‘breatharian’ until today; join the club. Because, neither had we. But now, we are aware of ‘breatharians’ and it’s just on a different level of weird:
Yeah, it’s a weird way to go about life. But these are real living people among us. This Audra Bear a 25 year old Breatharian from Minnesota:

SOURCE–Audra Bear, 25, from Minneapolis, says a lifelong interest in health and healing led her to try the bizarre practices; ‘prana’ and ‘breatharianism’.
She says ‘prana’ means energy and when breathing in, people inhale both air and prana. Breatharians claim to be nourished by air and don’t need solid food.
Bear says that her new daily 40-minute breathing rituals have left her preferring to get her energy not from wholesome meals but mostly from smoothies, tea and juices instead.
Bear explains: ‘Prana is another word for energy, also known as Qi or Chi. It is a life-giving force that flows in, through and around all things, it’s in the air we breathe, the sunshine, nature, connections with people and all living things. It is a powerful energy that actually has the ability to fuel and sustain us as humans.’
‘Breathwork helps you to realise who you are and what you need or don’t need. I never intended to ‘quit food’ I just started practicing for 40 minutes a day and after about five days I no longer had such a hunger for dense foods. My first fast lasted 97 days.’
Her fast went 97 days. She fasted for 97 days. Have you tried not eating for 8 hours? Have you tried intermittent fasting? That’s hard.. 97 days is absurd! She added she eats for “celebratory” reasons:
‘You can eat if you choose to, for entertainment or social settings, know your energy is sourced from the life-force all around you. Most days I just drink teas, fruit juices, green juices and fresh coconut waters. I do eat occasionally now, but more for celebratory reasons.’
Here are some of Bear’s breathing exercises:
Yeah, that’s gonna be a no for us. Sticking to our bugers, beers, hot dogs, pizza, sushi, and other fine foods that we enjoy. Look, you live once. Live it up.
