Health issue’s force Victoria’s Buffet King to call it quits
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VICTORIA, B.C | JULY 30, 2009 - - Guy Alaimo, the main writer and creator of the Victoria Buffet Blog, has called it a career and is retiring from the world of buffet reviewing at the age of 24 citing declining overall health.
In an interview conducted with the CBC mere months after launching the blog, Alaimo mentioned heart palpitations and other health issues he suffered due to extreme overeating. Sadly the sound of those palpitations has grown too loud to ignore.
“I just got out of hand,” says Alaimo. “I was obviously suffering from a severe eating disorder, and I was channeling that energy into my blog. It’s time to get serious and change my life if I plan on being alive in a few years.”
Alaimo provided the people of Victoria with one of the city’s first specialized food review blogs, reviewing every buffet restaurant in the city in just over a year of service.
As of July 29, 2009, Alaimo tipped the scales at 270 pounds, 50 pounds more than what he weighed when the Victoria Buffet Blog debuted in March, 2008.
Alaimo is also a contributing writer for the Victoria Burger Blog, though it is not known whether he plans on retiring from his burger reviewing career as well.
