Christian woman starves herself for 123 days to become the person ‘God wanted me to be’

A YouTube user going by the name of “aaroncohen” uploaded a video chronicling her 123-day fast from food, only allowing herself water and one multi-vitamin a day.

A disturbing video from a few years ago has resurfaced on a few religion-based blogs, so I thought I’d shared it here.

A YouTube user going by the name of “aaroncohen” uploaded a video chronicling her 123-day fast from food, only allowing herself water and one multi-vitamin a day.

In the description of the video, she writes:

I am fasting for spiritual reasons, the primary motivations being to become the woman G-d wants me to be, to know and do what He wants me to do, and to, in general, become the person He wants me to become. I am NOT doing this for the purposes of weight loss, cleansing, experimentation, record setting, health, or for any other non-religious alterior (sic) motive. Nor am I doing this for anyone else, though other individuals have asked me to pray for certain things during this time.

About 6 months later, she became pregnant with her 8th child. Hopefully she won’t be going on fasts anymore.

I first thought she was Jewish based on some of the things she said in her video description, but in a comment thread of another YouTube user, she identifies herself as a Christian.

Watch her transformation in the video below:

    She has 8 kids? Why has no one called CPS? Next thing we see is her drowing them in the tub to send them to Jesus. Hello Andrea Yates?

    This is not normal and what normal belief in God will do. It’s only the fanatical Christians that people focus on and base their opinions on.

    That energy at the end is a bad, bad thing.
    It means that you’re malnourished and potentially experiencing brain damage.

    I’m an expert with this, because I suffer from a severe form of anemia, and have experienced this sort of starvation, albeit unintentionally.

    This is what religious belief taken to the extreme and grossly misinterpreted can do. Real religious belief would never result in self-harm in the name of anyone.

    The video said 123 days but she said it was 40 days which is it. I need to fast also but I don’t think I need to go that long.

    There are actually plenty of particulars like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice level to bring up. I offer the ideas above as common inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you bring up the place a very powerful thing will probably be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly recognized as a good game. Both boys and girls really feel the impact of only a moment’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

    We can’t honestly say that we weren’t shocked and impressed by the sheer ingenuity of the Twerking Butt.|The employees at Scripps Ranch High College discussed a twerking incident involving students in a letter addressed to a school trustee.|
