David Blaine’s latest feat of attempting to not sleep for 13 days is being delayed by several months. David is still training for the stunt, calling it his most demanding ever. He wants to reach a target weight and maintain that weight for an extended period before attempting the potentially brain-damaging stunt.
Blaine tells the New York Post, “This one demands a lot out of me.
“I run 13 miles a week around Central Park’s reservoir. I’m down from 230 to 195 pounds in seven weeks. And of course I’m dieting. My raw diet has brown rice, no red meat or animal products besides fish.
“Nothing fits anymore. My wardrobe’s a disaster. I’m using belts. I need to drop another eight pounds and then stay this way. It’s not healthy to go up and down.”
