Is the plant diet the key to a higher plane of existence? Q13 FOX News Seattle reports:

Navenna Shine, the founder and subject of the Living on Light experiment, plans to spend the next four to six months living on only light, water and tea. While difficult, Shine hopes the body can be trained to live through the hardships of surviving without food.

Shine started the experiment in an attempt to follow a group of obscure Yogis, who for thousands of years have claimed the ability to live on light.

The woman, from the east of Switzerland, saw the movie and decided to try to survive entirely on light, preparing for the process by reading a book by Australian breatharian Ellen Greve, who goes by the name Jasmuheen. In line with the book, the Swiss woman, who was in her early 50s, did not eat or drink anything for a week — and even spat out her saliva — before resuming drinking in the second and third weeks.
