Breatharianism … huh? That was my first reaction when a friend told me she was changing into another eating lifestyle. Scratching my head, I thought, “wait, I haven’t even gotten into the full swing of being a vegetarian yet and here is something new and even more life changing. For an ignorant me,  being vegetarian was the ultimate sacrifice of turning back from the gastronomic delights I’ve been used to.

Decades ago, I was trying to lose weight  and was battling with a hormonal imbalance and a myoma that made me bleed profusely and was looking into an alternative treatment to avoid a hysterectomy.  A vegetarian doctor friend gave me a list of  food to avoid, I told him, “what can I eat? everything I’m eating is in your list.”  He just gave me a smug smile or was it a smirk and said, “that’s why you’re overweight and sick.”  Ouch … that hurt and pricked my pride!

Alleluia!!!  For a month now, I’m pork free …yehey!!! I was feeling proud of myself when I heard there is another purer, cleaner diet … AIR!  Oh no, this is the ultimate penance for my sins …

Breatharianism or  Inedia is living on air and not even drinking … OH NO,  NO!!!  This can not be … hahaha huhuhu …. I’ll go crazy with nothing to munch on and feel the heaviness in my tummy. Oh sigh, this air diet is not for everyone, this is for special people who wants to expand their consciousness.  Although, I would like to experience this broadening awareness, I prefer to be conscious rather than be unconscious because of hunger.
