“It is possible, it seems, to live on candy.”

When I read this New York Times article this morning, I didn’t think it was real!  How could someone eat only candy and actually survive?  Paul Rudnick, a playwright, has recently written a book that mentions his strange diet.  Apparently he hasn’t had any significant dental problems and is in generally good health.  Also, since I know you’re wondering, he is 5-foot-10 and weights 150 pounds!  There is no mention of a 12 hour a day workout habit, so I’m assuming he has the world’s speediest metabolism.  Or something!

So what does he actually eat?

He does not really eat meals, he said, more of a so-called grazer. For example, what he ate over the course of a recent, typical day was this: a plain bagel, a three-pack of Yodels, a small can of dry-roasted peanuts, some Hershey’s Kisses, and some breakfast cereal, which he eats by the handful, dry, out of the box.

Okay, I have an insatiable sweet tooth but even I can’t eat sweets all day every day!  I salute you Paul Rudnick, but I’m going to go eat a vegetable now, thank you!
