Young boy who has supposedly sat In a meditative state for months without eating or drinking.
So many different cultures and religions contain some form of fasting. Jesus, in the Bible went 40 days and 40 nights, Buddha encouraged it, and many, many more. Not only is fasting very prevalent in world history, but there are many surprising benefits to it. Today, there are stories of some very long periods of fasting, one being "Buddha Boy" who has supposedly not taken any food or water in over 10 months and Mataji who supposedly hasn't eaten or drank anything in over 70 years (see videos below). All it takes to reap the benefits of fasting is simply a 1 to 4 day fast, depending on your will power ;)
Fasting means eliminating food from your diet for a specific amount of time. A cleanse is usually some type of fast with the addition of certain foods, liquids, spices to help your body further remove wastes / toxins. Just think of a cleanse as a type of fast. You usually don't eat a lot of solid food, especially processed food on a cleanse. Fasting and cleanse programs are included in the program / membership tab at the top of the website.
Now if you are religious, you probably already know of some types of fasting programs, if not just ask an experienced practitioner / preacher within your sect or refer to the specific holy books of your religion. (Internet search) As an example, some Catholics abstain from meat or poultry on fridays during lent and also either give up a certain food for lent or do some type of extra good deeds during that time.
Intermittent fasting has been some what of a buzz word recently with different programs sprouting up all over the internet. However the Shaolin / Buddhist monks practiced intermittent fasting a long time ago. Some monks in China would eat one meal a day at noon however they also do hours of breathing meditation and ancient tai chi practices which help the body function optimally on this meal schedule. So when most people ask me whether intermittent fasting is good, I tell them- just don’t eat late 😄. You already do one form of fasting every day. By not eating after dinner you are fasting over night. That’s why they call it break-fast In the morning.
Only taking in fluids (both caloric and non caloric) including broth-like soups has helped many people lose weight as well as detox their system.
There are different levels to this option which differ on how strictly you avoid any animal derived product or not. However, a basic type of vegetarian fast just means you avoid all land or air meat / poultry products. Dairy products may be included in this fast should you choose to allow them. Many people including previous / current clients swear by vegetarian diets, claiming they have lost weight and experienced more energy. This can be a temporary fast or a permanent lifestyle change but rest assured, many people including top weight lifting and MMA fighters have built muscle and maintained excellent health while on a vegetarian diet. It can even help the environment by reducing carbon emissions produced in meat industry. Personally I feel it's possible but some people can transition to or follow a vegetarian diet better than others based on their heritage so proper nutrition is crucial to sustain it long term.
Mr Jani is also supervised by doctors over a period of time to verify he is in fact in a constant state of fasting.
