A couple has spoken out and said they have barely eaten for 9 years – as they are able to live off ‘the universe’s energy’.

Akahi Ricardo and Camila Castello are “breatharians”. They believe that food and water is not necessary for humans and can apparently can live off the energy of the universe.

The married couple, who have 2 children – a five-year-old boy and two-year-old daughter.

They claim they have survived off just the universe’s energy and a piece of fruit or some vegetable broth three times a week since 2008. They feel that their lifestyle has improved their health and with the money they save on food – they can go travelling.

Camila said: “Humans can easily be without food – as long as they are connected to the energy that exists in all things and through breathing. For three years, Akahi and I didn’t eat anything at all and now we only eat occasionally, like if we’re in a social situation or if I simply want to taste a fruit.With my first child, I practised a breatharian pregnancy. Hunger was a foreign sensation to me so I fully lived on light and ate nothing. My blood tests during all three trimesters were impeccable and I gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Since breatharianism, I feel healthier and happier that I’ve ever done before. When I was younger, my weight fluctuated but now, after having two children, my body bounced back to its natural shape immediately.Now, Akahi and I eat very sporadically – perhaps three or four times per week at the most. I might have a few vegetables, a juice or a bite of an apple with my children. Sometimes we have a glass of water too. Whenever I eat now, it’s not because I’m hungry – I just don’t remember that sensation.”

The couple eased themselves into the breatharian lifestyles, starting off as vegetarians, then becoming vegan before going on to live solely on a diet of fruit. They then took the plunge and went for the ’21 Day Breatharian Process’, which involved eating and drinking absolutely nothing for the first week, then allowing some water and diluted juice for the next 2 weeks.

Akahi seems very interested in the money-saving side of things. He said: “Obviously, our living costs are a lot less than most families and that has allowed us to spend our money on things that really matter like travelling and exploring together.”

He added: “The 21 Day Breatharian Process was a powerful one and stepping stone into realising the infinite potential that lies within. It led us to explore the breath and its presence within our lives, showing us that we could easily be without food as long as we had air. I used to eat a lot – but I haven’t felt hungry since that process in 2008.”

Thankfully, the couple’s kids don’t follow the diet, but they are aware of breatharian. Akahi said: “Our children are aware of breatharianism and the energy that exists in the universe and in themselves. But we would never try to change them and we let them eat whatever they want – whether that be juices, vegetables, pizza or ice-cream!”

“We want them to explore the different tastes and have a healthy relationship with food as they grow. It would be unfair to impose breatharianism upon our children now but maybe as they grow, they will get deeper into the practices.”
