A girl who astonished her followers after claims a diet that depends on breathing
A young girl surprised all her followers through her account on the "Ingestram" website, after confirming that she was adopting a diet based on "breathing" only.
"Odera Bear", 25 years old from Minnesota, has told to her 11,500 followers that she had been stopped eating the solid food for 97 days, since she started the diet of "breathing" system in order to be idealized and to gain Energy, according to network "Fox News" America.
"Odera Bear" follows a system called "breatharianism", popular in the United States since 1980s, but its effects on health and nutrition are not well understood.
"Odera Bear" said she was vegetarian for four years, before she discovered the "breatharianism" system eight months ago.
She claimed to breathe for 40 minutes a day, taking only tea and juices, she lost 7 kilos of her weight and having more energy than ever before.
But health experts say the food "breathing" system is unhealthy. "This is a serious exercise and may stem from a lack of a basic understanding of how the body works," said health expert "Joe Stevenson Lau".
He added that there are 6 essential nutrients that we need them to live healthy such a water, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates, we get them from the foods we eat or drink, and depriving our bodies from these six categories will lead us to physical imbalance, mental and death in the end.
But "Stevenson Lau" confirmed that liquid diets are usually prescribed to patients for a limited period after surgery, and that it may be difficult to get all the essential nutrients the body needs from a full liquid diet.
