The human Barbie, 28-year-old Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova, is in the process of becoming a Breatharian, a person who lives without food and drink, relying merely on sunlight for their nourishment.

Lukyanova, who first emerged as an Internet celebrity in 2012, is reportedly no longer eating food or drinking water, but rather finding sustenance through "cosmic micro-food" provided by sunlight and air.

"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," Lukyanova told International Business Times, which reports her waist has shrunk to less than 20 inches.

Though not well-known, Breatharianism cults have arisen in places like Hollywood and even big stars like Michelle Pfeiffer have admitted to once being members in the early 1980s.

Being a Breatharian can have a devastating impact on one's health and there have been cases in which people have died as a result of the strict diet restrictions imposed by the cult's philosophy, the New York Daily News reported.

The human Barbie's decision to become a Breatharian is seemingly in line with her previously held beliefs. She has claimed in the past to have the ability to speak with aliens through light and time travel, and also reportedly thinks she came to Earth from another planet.

Aside from the dietetic-based cult, Lukyanova has turned to surgery to transform herself into a walking doll via a breast enlargement, nose job, and a rumored surgery that removed a couple of ribs to help her achieve an 18-inch waist.

"I like this comparison, it's wonderful to look like a doll," she told arts and culture magazine Vice. "Even though people call me a Barbie, I never tried to look like a doll. I just like everything beautiful, feminine, and refined. It just so happens that dolls are based on the image of refined girls."

Vice's new documentary on Lukyanova, "Space Barbie," explores her life as a spiritual guru.
