(Scroll down for video) A woman who looks like a living barbie doll, said that she does not feel hungry.

The Ukrainian model, who has chosen to live as a Barbie doll, said she hopes to live without eating or drinking, just like a real doll.

Valeria Lukyanova, 28, who’s 5 feet 7 inches doll-like body features and ultra-thin waist, is causing controversy, after making a goal for herself, to live “on air and light alone.”

“In recent weeks, I have not been hungry at all,” Lukyanova said. She is optimistic that she is getting closer to her goal of surviving without eating.

Lukyanova is not the first person to believe that a person can live off air and light. The practice is known as Breatharianism. Followers do not eat or drink, believing that they can survive on air and light.

The practice has been criticized as potentially lethal and it is said that several practitioners have died of starvation. None have been subjected to comprehensive medical tests.
