Meet the 27-Year-Old Who’s Survived the Last Four Months Without Eating Food

Meet Alex Webber. He’s a 27-year-old San Francisco-based techie who works in cyber security for Robert Half, a human resource consulting firm. Like most workers, Webber works the typical 9-5 schedule. However, there’s one thing about Webber’s lifestyle that differs from his peers — for the last four months, he’s been surviving without eating food.

Well, sort of. Webber drinks Soylent, an FDA-approved powdered drink that’s advertised as a meal replacement. It supposedly provides all the necessary nutrients for the average adult. It also has a long ingredients list.
