Dwight Howard ate 24 candy bars a day for over 10 years!
Dwight Howard, also known as Superman, was addicted to his early NBA career. No, no alcohol, no drugs, but chocolate bars. Dr. Cate Shanahan, Howard’s nutritionist, says Dwight would eat skittles, starburst, rolos, snickers, Mars bars, twizzlers, almond delights, kit cats, and Reese’s pieces. She says Dwight “would eat them before lunch, after lunch, before dinner, after dinner, and have hiding places all over his house.” Dwight’s addiction led to dysesthesia, a condition that changes the nervous system and is common in patients with pre-diabetes. In 2014, Dwight announced that it had consumed “24 candy bars a day”.
