They featured one of his workouts in Men's Fitness one month. There were a couple of decent exercises (power cleans), but the majority was kind of bullshit. I definitely think he motivates people to eat better foods and exercise more but his diet advice is a little misguided. I believe Bob is vegan and the thing about being vegan is, if you are strict and don't eat a lot of processed junk you're skinny and the world views that as healthy. IMO.
Off topic (kind of), I was just at Starbucks picking up a coffee and there was this group of people deciding from the pastries which ones they would eat. One of guy points to a blueberry muffin exclaiming "..that has too much sugar and will give me a stomach ache". I felt like saying "everything in that case is fucked" And it's probably not the sugar that gives you a stomach ache.

According to wikipedia:
After reading the book Skinny Bitch, Harper became a vegetarian. In 2010, he then became a vegan for a year. That same year, PETA voted him sexiest male vegetarian of the year.
Harper stopped following a vegan diet in 2011 and now eats animal products again due to health reasons.
Yet another reformed Vegan!
