I Read This On MSN

There was this article on weight loss and this was one of the DO NOT try diets. This is what it said:

Breatharian Diet

This one takes the cake. (Oh, but only if it did.) It's a diet that promotes living on air alone, no food or water. Hmm. That is pretty contrary to what I learned in undergraduate and graduate school while studying nutrition. I believe our bodies will only survive a few days without water and a few weeks without food.
The mumbo jumbo on this diet is that you align yourself to the universe and you won't need water or food. You know what this sounds like to me? Starvation.


Do people really believe these things? Sounds like a great way to end up in the hospital. I am NOT and never will be that desperate to lose weight.

It's just like Kung Fu Panda! I think my body requires a bit more than dew and universe juice! Can't wait for the law suits to roll in on this one!
