The Ukrainian woman known as the "real-life Barbie" says she's done with food and water, and wants to live off light and air alone.

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

The New Age practice is known as Breatharianism. Its followers neither eat nor drink, believing they can exist solely on "cosmic micro-food."

Lukyanova, who has stirred controversy with her doll-like features and ultra-thin waist, has said she uses her appearance to promote her "spiritual ideas."

But critics like Jezebel.com have accused her of simply starving herself in order to maintain her doll-sized measurements.

Lukyanova also believes in reincarnation and has claimed to have been in contact with transdimensional beings.
