Howard asked Benjy why his healthy diet hadn’t prevented him from becoming as fat as Artie. Benjy couldn’t explain it, but Fred could: “He gets the Costco sized vat[s] of salad.” Fred explained how Benjy eats bowl after bowl of salad, but Benjy claimed he’d recently turned over a new leaf: “For the first time in my life, I’m trying to eat only when I’m hungry.” Howard gave Fred an assignment: whenever Benjy eats something, notify everyone else. Benjy confessed that he’s doing more than just portion control to lose weight – he’s also biking along the West Side Highway late at night. Howard didn’t understand how Benjy could go biking at 11pm and get enough sleep before he has to leave for work – and then told Benjy that if he stopped the shtick and got regular sleep, his appetite might return to normal.
