You think doing the master cleanse is hardcore? Try talking to the lady who did the sunlight only diet. Oh wait. You can't. Because she died.

In the film, Indian yogi Prahlad Jani claims to have lived for 70 years without food or water.
The woman did not eat or drink anything for a week. She went as far as spitting out her own saliva, before resuming drinking in the second and third weeks.
Her children begged her to start eating again, but she told them she would if it became dangerous.
She was found dead in her home last winter. The coroner came to the very obvious cause of death, starvation.
According to Gawker, "At least three other deaths have been attributed to the pseudoscientific practice of breatharianism since prominent advocate Ellen Greve (AKA Jasmuheen) began touting "pranic nourishment" in the 1990s."
