A Sri Lankan man claims that he has gone five years without eating a single meal, yet remains completely healthy.
According to the Daily Mail, Kirby de Lanerolle insists that the only nourishment he needs to survive is fresh air. He says that by harnessing light, wind and the “vibrations of God,” he can reverse the natural aging process and become immortal.
Kirby explained his breatharian lifestyle in an interview with TV show Taboo USA. In the interview, cited by The Sun, he said: “There are energy sources out there that are greater than the food calories you are putting in your body. Calories come from photons and light and vibrations and wind. Anything can feed you if your energy centres are open.”
Kirby admitted to eating seven 500-calorie meals over the last ten months, but said they made him sick.
“In this consciousness, when I do eat food, it makes me feel very tired. And my alertness goes away when I eat now.”
De Lanerolle was a drug addict at just 16 years old. But the adoption of breatharianism led him to win the Gold medal at the Junior National Level Championship for Rifle Shooting in 1995, along with several boxing medals.
He is also the Executive Advisor to the Ministry of Social Services in Sri Lanka and a very successful entrepreneur.
After reading about several people who didn’t eat for six years and didn’t drink water for 40 days and 40 nights, Kirby’s lifestyle change was solidified by the writings of a guru who said that cancer diabetes and heart disease are caused by food.
He wants to show the world the wonders of being breatharian, but critics are worried about his advice since some people have died trying to adopt similar lifestyles.
