March 2 (UPI) -- Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova -- aka, the human Barbie -- may be keeping her waistline inhumanly slim simply by not eating.

The 23-year-old said she's training herself to subsist on simply light and air, a trend called 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.

A breatharian is someone who never eats or drinks, but simply lives on "cosmic micro-food."

This isn't the first bizarre thing the human Barbie has said. A documentary was recently made about her in which she claimed to be an alien.
