  • The grocery-store rotisserie chicken is taking flight on social media after a Philadelphia-based restaurant server, Alexander Tominsky, 31, made headlines for losing 16 pounds in 40 days. His secret, as he told the New York Times, was to eat one full rotisserie chicken daily.
  • Tominsky first went public about his chicken run on Oct. 8 by tweeting: “I am eating a rotisserie chicken every day for 30 days. Today is day 11. I will keep you all updated as I get closer to my goal.”
  • Every day since then, the determined poultry fiend stuck with it, posting a photo of himself posing with chicken in restaurants, at home and even outside amid the fall foliage.
  • Pushing past the intended 30 days, Tominsky rallied a crowd of food fans to watch him devour his 40th chicken, culminating the marathon on Nov. 6.
