On bread alone?

I know someone who has been quite healthy for 20 years on a diet of nothing but plain spaghetti and chocolate milk (and occasionally meat once every few weeks). He has been to doctors and dentists and has no health problems or vitamin deficiencies, has perfectly straight teeth and no cavities. How is this possible?!

He just has no desire to eat anything else. His mother told me that this started when he was an infant. He just stopped eating. The doctor told his mother to wait it out, and he would return to normal eating habits. He never did.
I don't think the answer is that he's sneaking food (as it is with "breatharians" and others who claim to survive without food of any kind). But is that the only plausible answer?
