The statements just aren't scientific enough to believe them.
I don't really know, but I myself have only slept 5-6 hours a night for years and only eat once or twice a day and I'm a big guy. Even when I try to sleep late/in my body doesn't let me. Some people just don't sleep as much. I don't have any fancy scientific data for you, just experience. I have been in the Army for 20 years and have conducted lots of vigorous training on minimal sleep and few calories. You'd be surprised how the body adapts and how far you can push it.
