There are fad diets, and then there are insane fad diets. A Swiss woman is believed to have starved to death while attempting to a strict 'sunlight-only' diet.
The woman's decision reportedly came from viewing this controversial 2010 breatharianism documentary called 'In the Beginning There Was Light.' The documentary is about a Indian yogi named Prahlad Jani who claims to have lived for 70 years without food or water:
The unnamed woman must have been quite convince because she set out to try the lifestyle for herself. According to the NY Times, she spent a week eating and drinking nothing (not even her own saliva) while consuming only sunlight and air. She did stop for a couple weeks at the behest of her children, but eventually resumed. She was found dead in her home last winter; the cause of death was ruled to be starvation.
