Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger reports that a woman starved to death after embarking on a spiritual diet that required her to stop eating or drinking and live off sunlight alone.
The Zurich newspaper reported Wednesday that the unnamed Swiss woman in her fifties decided to follow the radical fast in 2010 after viewing an Austrian documentary about an Indian guru who claims to have lived this way for 70 years.

***an Indian guru who claims to have lived this way for 70 years.****
Oh, but at night I stake out my strong box
That I keep under lock and key
And I take it off to my closet
Where nobody else can see
I open that door so slowly
Take a peek up north and south
Then I pull out a Hostess Twinkie
And I pop it in my mouth.
Yeah, in the daytime I’m Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I’m a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me.
Obama wants us all to live on sunlight.
sunshine shines out Obamas a$$ ?
I think that is an outstanding idea and that obastard should lead they way by doing it first.
He could join this pinhead woman in improving the gene pool.
In one of Chesterton’s Fr. Brown mysteries, a modern day sun-worshipper goes blind.
I thought his New Age-ish parable was far-fetched.
VERY nice. ;-)
Isn’t that how they make raisins?
I’ve live my whole life on sunlight alone... ok, maybe the occasional box of ho hos, bag of chips, half gallon of ice cream and something to wash it all down with. But other than that, it’s just been sunlight.
However, I'd like to recommend that large scale tests be performed, employing those who believe deeply in the Green Revolution and Climate Change.
It would be Win-Win for the Earth.
By the way, I'm reminded of:
"Harold, the ambitious sheep..." with the punchline, "Because of the enormous commercial possibilities should he succeed."
Looks like her spiritual journey has begun in earnest!
“Flower child” is just a figure of speech.
...woman in her fifties...
I don't think she was in any danger of reproducing and she very well may already have had offspring.
Little did she know that the guru was the local distributor for Sunlight brand nutrient drink. Said the documentary's producer, "oh, did I leave that out? My bad."
Dead, but she had a nice tan.
obviously she wasn’t too bright...
She wasn’t very bright.
What an idiot. Try growing your plants on only sunlight alone. We don’t call them ‘LIEberals’ for nuttin’....
“.........about an Indian guru who claims to have lived this way for 70 years...................”
They don’t call them fakers for nothing.
Ahh yes, photosynthesis is a very difficult skill to master...
Aren't these people also called Fakers
Seems she "made it" into the next life...
.... after tragically shortening her days on earth
We will reach our own finish line some fine day.
