For 25 years, Dan Janssen has eaten pretty much nothing but pizza. “I do eat a bowl of Raisin Bran once a week or so if I want to be healthy,” Janssen told the Baltimore Sun. “But usually it’s just pizza and coffee.”

Our pal Justin Levy has an interview with Janssen up on Vice this week, in which Levy gets the 38-year-old Ellicott City woodworker to open up about his dietary habits. Apparently Janssen went vegetarian as a teen for ethical reasons, but he also hated vegetables. Plain cheese pizza was the perfect solution.

Props to Janssen for finding something he likes and sticking with it. ” I only eat cheese pizza. I never get sick of it. If I go to one pizza shop or another brand, it’s like eating a completely different meal,” he told Levy.

But the pizza-holism isn’t just a lazy choice; it also stems from Janssen’s complicated set of food aversions, for which he’s currently seeing a therapist. Although he has no plans to give up pizza, he does imagine a future with a slightly more diverse set of food options. “I remember about four years ago I ate a peach and it was amazing,” he told the Sun. “I just never think to do things like that.”
