The exceptions that break the rule are as follows:

- Iolaus, astounded by Fish's appetite, gives up his meal to a hungry Fish. - 1.16 - Down and Out in Academy Hills
- While sailing to Korsenia, Iolaus complains about the 'child-sized portions' at dinner.
- On their way to Cheiron's Academy, Hercules and Iolaus stop at Kora's Inn to enjoy one last good meal before they have to endure months of Academy food.
- At Kora's, he and Nysus Gaius can be seen devouring bread, presumably the last remnants of a larger meal.
- After Jason, fed up with the bad food at the Academy, declares a hunger strike, Iolaus (who seems not to have nearly as much of a problem with the food and finishes Jason's for him) comments that, with the harvest festival coming up and with all the food there will be, it's a bad time to go on a hunger strike.
- Iolaus grabs a stick of celery from a plate off Leonidas's tray, and says "It's okay, I'm a waiter" before eating it.
- Iolaus, in dismay that Kora's Inn is closed, cries, "But I'm hungry!" Jason responds, "You're always hungry."
- Hercules tries to buy Jason lunch to make up for breaking his sword. When Jason says that he's not hungry, Iolaus chimes in with "Can I have his share?"
- Iolaus is munching on something while he and Jason watch the interaction between Hercules and Galatea. When Hercules pulls Galatea away for a chat, Iolaus makes a bee-line for the picnic food, "Is that goat cheese?"
- In one of the scenes where Iolaus and Jason are planning Lilith's surprise party, they're both snacking on what look like dinner rolls.
- As Iolaus and Hercules enter the marketplace at the beginning of the episode, Iolaus is eating spanakopita. He continues stuffing his face as he goes to talk to Orpheus (right before the fangirls show up).
- The beginning of this episode has Iolaus and the others lingering around the table after a meal at Kora's.
- Iolaus, Jason, and Lilith are invited to spend the Feast of Persephone with Hercules and Alcmene (and Capaneus.
- After being arrested for 'attacking' Jason, Iolaus helps himself to some apparently-really-good stew while Hercules paces around their cell.
- When his mind is swapped with that of a deer, Iolaus (or, rather, the deer trapped in Iolaus' body) can be seen chomping down on some grass and leaves.
