It appears that you have missed the whole point of the thread which had zero to do with whether there are breatharians in the world.
No offense was intended, Al, and I would not have mentioned it if you had not brought up the subject here:
...Most people I know experience a drop in food requirements from the beginning but I am not sure all his claims are accurate.
And again here:
He has been monitored as he did it in a hospital in India as an experiment.
I had only good intentions with my warning and I tried to state it in a factual, inoffensive manner, but I know that some people will be offended by the facts no matter how politely they are stated. I'm more committed to the facts than I am to popularity contests, so if this sunlight guru is again recommended or the topic of food requirement reduction is again brought up, then I forewarn that I will likely again share a warning, in the interests of good will toward my fellow humans and distaste for fraud, of which breatharianism is a particularly egregious example. Having done my humanitarian duty in this case, which I felt some particular call to because I started this thread, I have no interest in discussing that specific topic any further if you don't persist in it.
Please also note that the topic of this thread I created is not reduction in food requirements or even sungazing specifically, but "Ortho C: vision correction without surgery?" I plead for no more tangents away from Ortho C and vision correction to controversial topics like breatharian food consumption reduction from sungazing. Thanks in advance for your consideration, which I hope for from a fellow like yourself who I have found to be generally polite and friendly.
As for the practice of sungazing irrespective of food requirements, I do a sort of sun gazing myself, though I don't want anyone doing it just because I do, for I don't know that much about it and I don't like prescribing in general. I hesitated to even mention it, except that perhaps this will help put you at ease that I'm not trying to take issue with all aspects of "sun gazing", but rather only with the sun guru's claim that it greatly reduces the need for food consumption and with his other breatharian claims, which also unavoidably call into question his overall credibility.
I should mention as a caution that I don't stare directly at the sun when it's strong, but instead off to the side and from my reading of the guru's website I seem to recall that he gazes at the horizon sun rather than the strong mid-day sun. It seems like the weakened horizon sun might be safe to stare at, though I don't know for sure. My optometrist warned me against staring at the sun (and he claimed that one of his patients burned his retina by staring at the sun too long while spaced out on LSD), though I presume that he meant strong sun. I know I get sunlight in my eyes even without looking directly at the sun, so I figure that I can probably get most of the benefit without having to stare directly at it anyway. Even just being outdoors during the day without wearing sunglasses enables one to get indirect sunlight into the eyes.
