DEFINITION OF BREATHARIAN [Dec. 15th, 2005|10:59 am]
ProAna-Breatharians-people who never eat


BREATHARIANISM, INEDIA, NON-EATING (breatharian, inediate, non-eater)

This is a state of man (breatharian, inediate, non-eater) characterized (among other things) by the absence of eating, resulting from (or rather being a stage on the way to) expanding of the Consciousness sphere in which a person lives. In general an ideal (fully realized) inediate, breatharian, non-eater has no need to eat or drink to keep the body working perfectly. A breatharian consumes no food and no drink, he/she needs only air to nourish the body.

Many non-eaters (even if he/she call him/herself a breatharian) drink (some) water, tea, coffee or other beverages from time to time. Some of them, in order to satisfy the sense of taste, eat a piece of chocolate, a cookie, some cheese, horseradish or something else once in a while. The non-eating state of an inediate, breatharian, non-eater doesn't require any ascetic practices of the body. This is more about the freedom of choice and a lot of benefits.

A person who regularly drinks liquid food, e.g. fruit juices, can't be called an inediate, breatharian or non-eater. This is a diet called liquidarianism. Also, we don't call a person an inediate or breatharian when he/she is fasting or on a starvation diet. Also in these cases food is not (or almost not) consumed during some time, but such situation lasts only temporary and then food consumption is resumed or the person dies. An inediate or breatharian, never starves or dies for lack of food because his/her body needs not matter called food.

Permanent non-eating, inedia or breatharianism are states which usually appear as a side effect of expanding one's sphere of the Consciousness. However there are also many cases that this state happened unexpectedly and lasted for months or years.

A person who by force tries to refrain from eating can't be called an inediate or breatharian. Such action, if prolonged, is harmful to the body and can lead to death. Fasting and starvation diet are different subjects the inedia, breatharianism and non-eating.

Becoming an inediate or breatharian results (often as a side effect) on a way of expanding the sphere of the Consciousness which the person lives in. Inedia, breatharianism is more like a characteristic features of a life style and is not limited to just stopping all food intake. Because an inediate or breatharian sets him/herself free from the need to feed the body, he/she has the choice to eat or not to eat, but one thing is for sure, a real inediate or breatharian does not need to eat to keep the body working normally.

Hey, you should use a spell-check and or tense check if you want to sound the least bit authoritative or trustworthy. Let's face it, you are fighting a losing battle (ha, ha insert smug comment here). Most people are going to think that you are crackpots. If you really want to help other like-minded individuals, you should try to establish a little validity outside of your normal "support circle". Perhaps you might want to do a little research as well. If you really want to help "free" people, should help them do so in a safe way. For anyone out there who doesn't know this already, losing approx. 80% of one's body weight in under two months is severe enough to cause atrial thinning, a condition which can lead to heart attack. Never had a heart attack, but did lose a lot of my hair and did incur other permenent negative health side-effects. And no, I'm not fat, in the least, but I learned a valuable lesson about goals and values. Oh, I'm also a lot happier now that my inner life/abnormal behaviors don't prevent me from having friendships or romantic relationships. Also, it does not take that long to do irrepairable damage. I was only clinically diagnosable from about 17-21, I'm now 30 and it has been a long time since I have engaged in any serious food restriction and I my body is still privvy to my past abuses.

this is interesting. Obviously, we are chained to the earth by physical ties, such as food...water..even air. I do beleive that a body can remain healthy without food but Ive never tried it. I used to be anorexic, in that I forced myself to not eat...not for spiritual growth.

Lets just make sure your anorexic tendencies stay in the past... theres never a good enough reason to revert back.

Quick frankly if God really didnt want people to eat then he would make it so that we couldnt... just like God didnt want people to fly...
or does that mean if i close my eyes really tight and believe hard enough that i will suddenly defy gravity? doubt it.. ker splat!
