Think about niyoga? Why is it kalivarjya now? 
Eating and drinking without hunger is easy of-course.

Some of these things cannot be explained and are known only through experiencing 
This is where some of the high end haTha yoga techniques like for ex: the

is still from vAmA and kaula backgrounds. Entire shrIvidya has kaula origins.
