A mum-and-dad of two say they have barely eaten for nine years because they believe food and water is unnecessary.
Akahi Ricardo and Camila Castello have been BREATHARIANS since 2008 and follow the belief that humans can be sustained solely by the energy of the universe.
Camila and Akahi – who have a five-year-old son and two-year-old daughter – say they survive on little else besides a piece of fruit or vegetable broth just 3 times per week.
And Camila even practiced as a Breatharian during PREGNANCY – apparently not eating anything during the entire nine months that she carried her first child.
The married couple-of-nine-years say that their ‘food-free lifestyle’ has improved their health and emotional wellbeing. The family’s lower cost of living has also allowed them to spend their money on other passions like travelling.
Camila, 34, who lives between California, USA and Ecuador with her husband, explains: “Humans can easily be without food – as long as they are the connected to the energy that exists in all things and through breathing.
“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.
“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.
“Since Breatharianism, I feel healthier and happier that I’ve ever done before. When I was younger, my weight fluctuated but now after having two children, my body bounced back to its natural shape immediately.
“I never suffer from PMS symptoms anymore and I feel more emotionally stable.”
