For this strong opening entry Foodman quotes Voltaire, “ Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.”

May 31 – June 5
This time is spent in Montreal and Toronto where Foodman subsists solely on Tim Horton’s. In Burlington, VT Foodman visits the original Ben and Jerry’s and goes deep on some ice cream. This week is dubbed, “the lost week,” which eventually leads to the entire tour being dubbed, “Foodman’s Lost Tour.” Foodman hits a roadblock toward the final leg around St. Paul, MN, where he is stricken down with an unknown illness that results in a serious curbing of his appetite and henceforth an absence of “logs,” or a lagging with the logging, if you will. The Black Hollies try to light a fire under Foodman insuring him that he is inadvertently letting down his minions by being remiss in his duty of keeping track of his own consumption. We say, “Foodman, we can’t eat the food for you. We can't write your destiny. Your destiny is not written for you, but by you. Please, keep track of what you eat,” and after a couple days we give up, considering it a lost cause. You can’t force a man to be a food star. He has to want it. He has to be hungry for it. As compensation to all the dedicated fans of Foodman I thought it a good idea to get to the bottom of this and interview the man behind the food, Herbert Joseph Wiley V himself, to find out what went wrong on this lost tour, to inquire about when he discovered his natural talent for consuming, and to learn some of the meaning behind his unique vernacular pertaining to certain digestion phenomena. So here we have the remnants of Foodman’s Lost Tour Part I, entries from June 6 to June 17 without daily quotes, a shame I know, but honest nonetheless, and worthy of consideration because this short stint contains some heavy hitting entries. Also, please keep in mind that Foodman gets ill for about a week and just doesn’t have the strength to log. His illness starts around June 11, peaks around June 17, and ends around June 24 while the first tour ends on June 28.
