The cold hard facts: It's physically impossible to look like Barbie.
Shocking... but how did this happen?
In the 1960s, toymaker Mattel released "Slumber Party Barbie," along with combs, hair rollers, and a sleeping bag. This Barbie set included a bathroom scale permanently stuck at 110 pounds, and a small book titled "How To Lose Weight." The only words written in the book were the all-capital exhortation, "DON'T EAT!" Decades later, this advice would re-emerge as the code word "I.D.E.A." used online by sufferers of eating disorders—short for the chilling slogan: I don't eat anymore.
