A model from the Ukraine who calls herself a real-life Barbie doll plans to live her life without eating or drinking a single thing.
According to the Huffington Post, Valeria Lukyanova says she has not had an appetite of late and says she’s almost attained her goal to live only on light and air.
But this is not a new thing. It is called Breatharianism, where followers neither eat nor drink, and instead live on “cosmic micro-food,” according to Huffington Post.
In Seattle, a, USA woman early last year drew attention when she attempted the same thing. Founder and subject of the Living on Light experiment, Naveena Shine, attempted to abstain from food to live on only light, water and tea.
In October, she announced this on her Facebook page that she was “moving on” from “Living on Light.”
Thank God she borrowed some brain. But at least she was taking water and tea. Valeria Lukyanova’s case is something else and it is a cause for concern.
“In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all,” she said.
“I’m hoping it’s the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone.”
Valeria, who is believed to be around 28 but refuses to reveal her exact age, claims, on her blog to be the most famous woman on the Russian internet. She also spoke of her ability to interact with aliens and journey outside her body.
She says she’s been having out-of-body experiences since she was a child and believes she is a spiritual healer.
“My experience is very wide,” she commented.
“I can travel around the entire world, to the past and to the future. I also share my ideas on dieting with people. If you want to live a long life and stay beautiful, eat vegetables and herbs, eat very small portions—you will have more energy, feel more pure emotions, and that will make you a more creative person.”
Her desire to become a Breatharian has sparked massive reaction on her own Facebook page with people calling her names ans saying she is stupid, dangerous and sad.
A Facebook user, Luanne Ruth Warnick told the model she didn’t like her looks.
“FAKE….if you like that kinda thing. Must be very insecure on the inside. Clearly you are not normal to think you’re an alien and survive on light and air. I’m not trying to be mean, I see sadness and a blank stare. Even the doll Barbie smiles. How come we don’t see pics of you smiling? I would like to see you smile.”
Below are other reactions:
“Personally I don’t Believe u can just live off air and water! Ur a beautiful person u don’t need to look like Barbie she fake, a plastic doll ur a living human being. Look like urself not anybody else I’m not here to hate or judge, just be careful!!! Good luck to u” Darla Fay Price
“Unless you have a mental disorder, no one should want to look like that. Please, get a healthier body by having a healthier way of life….” Sébastien Daigle
“She’s a beautiful young woman that needs to gain some pounds.” Diane Schulte
Sydney-based nutritionist Susie Burrell said the so-called diet was not only dangerous but physically impossible and had no place or context in anyone’s world.
Experts have said that it is not possible to achieve such a feat as the human body can only exist for a certain time without both food and water. Managing and maintaining a breatharian diet is impossible unless the person was super human.
