Valeria Lukyanova, a model from the Ukraine who considers herself a real-life Barbie doll, wants to live without eating or drinking.

Lukyanova, whose doll-like features have prompted skepticism and condemnation , says she hasn't had an appetite lately and hopes that means she's close to her goal to live only on light and air, according to the Huffington Post .

"In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I'm hoping it's the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone,"she told the International Business Times in February.

The idea is espoused in a philosophy called Breatharianism, where devotees don't eat or drink, but instead live on "cosmic micro-food," according to Huffington Post.

Many have accused Lukyanova of Photoshopping her images to get those doll-like proportions.
