Hi everyone, my name is Sean, forty-four year-old mother of five. For five years I was primarily vegan/vegetarian, because after several years of consuming anything I wanted, my body began to reject meat and dairy products. I had signs of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. No one in my family has this problem. But over a year ago I was diagnosed with it.
Last year, July 2013, I found eating even vegan meals was very difficult. After seeing a gastrointestinal specialist, I was told my gallbladder had to be removed. I was told that all issues I had with IBS would be resolved. I also had a colonoscopy and endoscopy indicating after my procedure, I was clean as a whistle. Surprisingly, since then, I eat maybe 2-3 times per week! One meal might be six grapes, 1/2 of an Apple, 1/2 of a fruit cup. I might drink 1/2 cup of water or juice every couple of days. All symptoms of IBS have vanished.
After several years of smoking Newports, one pack a day, I quit four months ago. My appetite was gone. I have to push myself to eat anything. In order to prove to my family that was healthy, mainly my parents who are very concerned, I went to their doctor of choice last month. I WAS GJVEN A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH. All my blood tests were normal. The only thing I was low on was Vitamin D. I lost thirty pounds and now plateaued at 125 pounds. I am 5'3. There really is no explanation for this transformation.
I repeat - I eat maybe 2-3 times per week. One meal might be six grapes, 1/2 of an Apple, 1/2 of a fruit cup. The biggest and only problem I have is living this way around my family. No one understands this and I am constantly criticized and ridiculed. I do not desire any foods of any kind. I am not familiar with prana or chi, I am a nondenominational Christian and I pray daily. I feel very fortunate to have found this group because I have read many posts proving that I am not alone. I haven't decided to go 100% in the breatharian direction. My family keeps telling me that this is an affliction. But I feel fine folks:) BTW the longest fast I have gone for was twenty two days, it was a liquid fast juice, tea and water. And my children are meat eaters (smile).
I am interested in learning more about sungazing and meditation in the future. Thanks for reading:)

Hi Sean,

Nice to meet you. I'm Christine.
Your family's reaction is quite understandable. For most people, the idea of living on light is beyond their capacity to comprehend or accept, so we cannot blame them. I believe your family needs more time to accept your pranic state. They will eventually come to conclusion that you can stay healthy without eating as long as your weight stays the same, healthy and radiant, and that your blood tests keep showing normal results. When you are good company over the dinner table and don't look awkward to anyone, people often don't notice how much you are eating.
My husband has gotten used to my "unusual" eating habits over time. I make regular meals for him and enjoy our conversation while he is eating. I can focus more on our conversation as I just sip tea or water. Sometimes I choose to eat a small amount of fruits or dessert with him and sometimes I don't eat anything, but he no longer thinks there is anything unusual about me. Smile

Hi Christine, thank you for your encouraging words. I continue to argue and rationalize how I am living with my family, but it hasn't been as stressful as it was before. As long as they watch me drink my Nutribullet drinks a few times a week, there are fewer arguments. Since I have been a member of this forum and took the time to research breatharianism, my fear has reduced significantly. I don't believe that I am sick and dying anymore. I know my family is wrong. My body is undergoing extreme food intolerance and my body is adjusting in its own way. Aside from the Vitamin D prescribed by my MD, 3 times a week I drink my Nutribullet drinks that consist of raw fruits and vegetables - Kale, Spinach, strawberries, blueberries, goji beans, spring water, watermelon, Omega 3/flax oil and occasionally bananas. No solids anymore. I am convinced that slowly my folks will be more accepting as time goes by. Wink

Hi Sean,

I am glad to hear that you are doing well with fruit and veggie drinks and that your family is gradually accepting your current dietary needs. I am certain that your family will eventually convinced Smile . Good luck and enjoy your freedom!
