Ah, interesting.

I liked Fakes Steve's explanation too...

"...it was all just caused by the way the lighting was done on the stage at WWDC because they put in special lights to try to make Phil Schiller look less huge and the side effect of that lighting was that it made everyone else look extremely thin..."

God, that hit a little too close to home...

It's the Whipple guys. It does...things. You don't get your gut rewired and walk away clean. Sisthine was lucky - she got to keep the valve in her stomach that controls emptying so she's dodged some of the effects. But even so, she hasn't been quite the same. And she's skinny too.

His appearance shouldn't be too much of a surprise considering his strange eat habits in the past. In the mid 70s he ate nothing but fruit. A friend of Bill Gates once said that Steve was once eating so many carrots that he turned orange for a time. Allegedly, a platefull of shaved carrots still counts as a meal for him.

And he eats no sugar, and forbids it in his home! How can he do that? [Eek!] Corn Syrup is in everything! That's quite a feat.

So, I figure that he found some revolutionary crazy hippy diet after he got cancer, and no matter how bad it makes him look, he truly believes that it works. He's done it before, so why not again?

Yeah, the side effects of getting your gut rewired are truly revolutionary and hippie. [Roll Eyes]

Surely what he eats must be part of it. It's more than plausible that he changed his diet after the surgery. My mom can't eat certain things after her gall bladder surgery.
