Woody Harrelson is definitely not your typical Hollywood celebrity. At the core, he’s very much into raw living and pushing the limits of mental and physical health. His dedication to the vegan lifestyle in particular is legendary — and sometimes borderline obsessive — but you can’t help but respect such commitment.
Back in November of 2006, Harrelson completed a 38-day green-juice fast. He wanted to make it to 40 days, but some friends ruined the chance with some homemade cooking and he succumbed. During that time, however, Woody said that his “electromagnetic field expanded” and he received a “real charge” from the experience.
Well, now Harrelson is preparing for another food quest after announcing that he will shuffle off to a remote island and drink nothing but water for 40 days. From the article,
“‘I’ve always wanted to do it,’ he says. ‘I know it’s going to be really hard. But can you imagine it? Eating nothing for 40 days? Swimming and surfing every day in a remote place? Where does the mind go?'”
I’m sure it’s a lot more romantic talking about it then actually waking up on Day 15 screaming “I just want an apple!”
Let’s hope Woody’s brain is up to the challenge.
