"He's fragile. Brittle."

"His skin is stretched so tight over his temples that you can practically see his thoughts." Manorexia. (Via Metafilter.)

There's an irony reading about him while handing out candy to trick or treaters.

This is silly. You can never be too thin. NEVER.

For contrast, check out the link at the bottom of that page to "The World's Strongest Men":

The worst part was the eating. All day was consumed by consumption: a dozen eggs for breakfast, a protein shake for brunch, two chicken breasts for lunch, egg whites for a snack, coffee and amino acids before training, a special fast-digesting protein drink right after, and two quarter-pound hamburgers for dinner. "The worst is waking up and you're dead tired, but you know if you don't wake up now you won't have time to eat enough," Ostlund says. "Sometimes you're full and you have to eat anyway."
