He’s 63 years old, but Bob Krause admits he still eats “a 4-year-old’s dream diet.”
Krause likes peanut butter, crackers, grilled cheese sandwiches, chocolate milk and little else. More adventurous meals look like “a plate of barf,” he told LiveScience.
“If I could snap my fingers and change, I would,” he said, explaining his pickiness helped ruin two marriages, limited his career options and makes most social occasions sources of stress.
Researchers think Krause could be one of thousands suffering from a previously unrecognized illness: selective eating disorder, more commonly known as very picky eating. Instead of having a couple foods they’d rather avoid, the way most of us do, people with selective eating disorder feel there are very few foods they are even capable of eating.
