  • A Swiss newspaper named Tages-Anzeiger reports that a woman actually tried to live off sunlight. Her goal of attaining a sunlight diet was part of a spiritual quest that required the woman to give up eating or drinking, instead just soaking up the Sun and its magnificent rays. Unfortunately, she is now dead because people cannot live off sunlight.

    The Tages-Anzeiger is based in Zurich, where the woman purportedly lived in nearby Wolfhalden. Though her name has not been released out of respect, she was in her fifties and started her quest for a sunlight diet in 2010, after reading about the Indian Yogi who claimed to have lived off sunlight alone for over 70s years. Our investigative team debunked the Austrian documentary about the Yogi in 2011.

    What’s worrisome is that according to the Tages-Anzeiger, this trend of ‘sunlighting’ is part of a larger scheme called a ‘sunlight diet’. There are now diet ‘gurus’ out there actually tricking people into believing that sunlight can be the bulk part of a healthy diet. Officials say the incidence of sunlighting is highest in Germany, Britain and Australia.
