Is it possible to live without meat, vegetables, or fruit? Some sort of inanimate non-living substance?

    Some 'saints' or Indian Sadhus like NagaSadhu claim to have lived only on Prana (spiritual non-physical food of the Gods) for years and years!

    Grains. Beans. Nuts. Seeds.

    None of those are meats, vegetables, or fruits. Though they aren't non-living substances.

    Supplement powders, Astrounaut style, yet you're still mixing it w/water, which some may argue is a living substance.

    I guess you could "synthesize" the nutrients that your body needs, but I have no idea if that has been done or can be done without using some type of previously living organism.

    why are people saying yes and then giving examples like grains beans and tofu. those are all in the vegetable kingdom..

    this person is specifically asking NON-LIVING SUBSTANCE.

    and so of course the answer is no.

    Yes, but they wont receive all the vitamins and nutrients they need in order to be healthy. Therefore they will become unhealthy and become more prone to certain illnesses and diseases. Eventually they would die. BE HEALTHY :)

    Your body naturally needs a varity of foods and just tofu isnt enough. But if you really need to stick with veggies and tofu.

    I doubt it. You don't need to eat meat, dairy or eggs to live - but you still need to eat.

    Edit: So you think you can live without food?

    You mean, like rocks and dirt?

    It sounds like a great idea- why don't you try it?

    Maybe you could do a documentary.
