After dropping about 20 percent of her body weight, Naveena Shine, the 65-year-old Eastside woman who got worldwide publicity for trying to just live on light and no food, is calling it quits with her grand experiment.
Monday was Day No. 45 of no food, just water and tea “with a splash of milk.”
Shine had dropped to 126 pounds from her original weight of 159 pounds on her 5-foot, 4-inch frame.
She says she’s quitting on Wednesday in part because she’s run out of money, and part because of the public reaction.
