I think that was predictable.
The documentary film "Eat The Sun" did a pretty good job of exposing the sun gazing sub-culture, although I don't recall the reference to Breatharianism.

From the article,
Quote:
Doctors have warned that it is not possible for humans to photosynthesize,
Well, duh?
Quote:
and four deaths have been linked to people who apparently had tried.
Eating disorders, maybe?

You have to love the part where she is quitting to protect those that don't quite have their act together.

Here's my favorite from the comment section:

Quote:
"But people donít ever want to hear the truth,Ē she says.

I find it interesting how she fails to understand how that relates to herself, and how many others seem to have the same problem. They come up with some wild imaged idea, that not only has no basis in reality but has been thoroughly proven untrue in reality, but continue to believe it. And think it's everyone else that's wrong.

This researcher attributes his ability to eat just about whatever he wanted and stay thin to his 'buddy'.

Quote:
Meanwhile, I was eating insulin-spiking potatoes every day with complete impunity. Starchy tubers, grains and beans, sugar-filled fruits, fat-laden nuts and avocados, meat. I even sometimes put honey on my yogurt and berries. Yet throughout this time, my buddy helped me stay lean.

Resistant starch

The news has been full of reports on a technique that can reduce the calories in white rice by 30-40%. You cook it normally with some coconut oil in the water. Then chill it overnight. The cooling causes a substantial portion of the starch to convert to an indigestible form. According to the reports, the rice can be reheated and still remain resistant. Could be a big deal if it pans out. I already make a batch of rice ahead and then heat individual portions in the microwave.

This report reminded me that I have read that potatoes become the metabolic horror shows they are when cooked but drop way down the glycemic index when chilled. Another example of resistant starch? If potatoes can be reheated with impunity as the rice reportedly can I will start making twice baked and freezing them for reheating.

Hey Chuckanut!

I can't message you.

So therefore this small off-topic question in this thread: I love your tagline. Do you know who it's from or are you the author?

It's from a character in the Babylon 5 TV show.

I'm not sure why you can't message me. I don't think I turned them off but....
