Dwight Howard, also known as Superman, dealt with a addiction during the beginning of his NBA career. No, not alcohol, not drugs, but candy bars. Howard’s nutritionist, Dr. Cate Shanahan says Dwight would eat Skittles, Starburst, Rolos, Snickers, Mars Bars, Twizzlers, Almond Joys, Kit Kats, and Reese’s Pieces. She says Dwight would eat them “before lunch, after lunch, before dinner, after dinner, and had stashes all over his house”. Dwight’s addiction led to him having Dysesthesia, which is a condition that alters the nervous system and is commonly seen in patients with pre-diabetes. In 2014, Dwight would reveal he consumed “22 Hershey bars worth of sugar for years.”
