He simply lost his appetite

After the phenomenal success of his BBC TV shows ‘Finger Food 
for the Over Forties’ and ‘Simple Snacks for Seniors’  ten-year-old 
wunderkind Macaulay Minge wrote a series of best-selling cookery
 books, a blockbuster novel, two volumes of poetry and a food column
 for the Guardian, before announcing his early retirement. 
“Writing is a young man’s game. If you haven’t made it by the time
you’re fifteen you should probably find a different career,”
 he told the Author, before asking him what he did for a living.
