I do not think irony is adequate under the circumstances...

Great and inspirational man. There is a YouTube channel with a bunch of old tv clips of his, good watching.

I am sad today. He is the standard of exercise extreme and helped me immensely on my journey. Check out Google images for Jack at 71. He looks great. Muscular etc. He is still espousing a meat, eggs, fat diet. He later got taken down by the lipid hypothesis like the rest of us. Started juicing...(sugar)...eating skinless chicken breasts and salads. Quickly became just as old as many other people who never exercised. SAD. I loved him in all his glorious nuttiness. I hate Ancel Keyes and the crooks who convinced Jack the Giant to give up his eating beliefs (You Tube and you will hear him talk about steak, eggs, etc.) and follow their road to unwellness. A SAD day for me, but not a SAD day for eating. Long live the memory of Jack the Giant.

Yep, saw that. He had a good run, but done in by Pneumonia. Hope I'm in that good of a shape at that age.
