Valeria Lukyanova: Human Barbie starves herself to live on light, air

Valeria Lukyanova, the "Human Barbie" is at it again. According to UPI on March 2, 2014, the Ukranian model is said that she has stopped eating and is starving herself so that she can continue toward her goal of being the ultimate human Barbie-doll. She is doing this by surviving strictly on "air and light."

The 23-year-old model is practicing a trend that is known as "breatharianism"

"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 has said.

According to studies, those that practice "breatharianism" never actually eat real food or drink any liquids. They live their live with what is called "cosmic micro-food." That is rather appropriate for Lukyanova who recently starred in a documentary titled "Space Barbie."

Some look at that group of people as a bit of a cult, but they are simply another phase or trend or way of life. It all depends on how many people begin to practice it.

It has been criticized by many as a potentially lethal pseudoscience, and a number of people have actually died of starvation.

Valeria Lukyanova appears to be alright with her new diet of air and light so she is going to continue it en route to her life goal.
