wow I am glad Gary said something... of course Howard will never believe it. Do you think Howard has a yearly doctor's checkup? I am sure if he got a blood test they would find him deficient of lots of vitamins and minerals like iron, B12, etc.
In truth, the two clips I have seen of Howard panting and barely able to remain alert -- one in a boat on an AGT promo and one walking off the AGT stage after dancing lead me to believe he is somewhat ill. His cachexia (generalized wasting) supports this.
Howard's a tortured man, everyone who listened knows this, it's why he was such an electrifying personality. The neuroses built and destroyed this guy. And just as he went anal having to point out flaws in ordinary women he judges himself like a piece of meat too. He's not healthy, a successful person who gets pissy over mean Twitter comments sent in by random strangers isn't thinking straight. He's got the same mindset as teen girls who kill themselves over cyber bullying.
If Howard hadn't hit the jackpot, was blackballed by the industry he would have killed himself years ago. He'll either die of some illness or eventually Beth O will convince him to take some medication that will keep him doped up. It's pathetic, it's Howard Stern.
Howard: And here's your question. Spell red.
Beetlejuice: Red? L-S-T-E-R
He can diet/starve himself all he wants but he won't be where he wants with his physique until he changes up his workouts and routine; that trainer Pat of his just knows how to string him along and appease him while not increasing the workouts, which is why he doesn't really have much definition or barely a core
