Jason Segal is 35 years old, but he recently ate like someone 15 years younger than him. In other words, he feasted like a college student!

The actor told Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan that he had to gain 40 lbs for his role as author David Foster Wallace in "The End of the Tour." How did he do it? By eating a lot of high calorie, high sodium Hot Pockets!

"By the end, I was running out of time. I had about two weeks left, so I put myself on a Hot Pocket diet, which was two Hot Pockets every three hours," he said. "It was horrible. I was eating like 12 Hot Pockets a day at that point. I was so sick of them."

Sounds like a dream for a college kid! (It also sounds like reality for a college kid, too!)

Jason said early on he loved his microwavable pepperoni cleanse.

"The first week is fun. And then after that every day feels like Thanksgiving night," he said. "Like you're just done. You have no energy or anything like that."

However, if you think he's done eating the electromagnetic delights, you've got another thing coming.

"I swore that I'd never eat another Hot Pocket," he said, "but if you put a Hot Pocket in front of me right now, I'd eat it."
