When you see the the Puff-Tor (floaty guy) you'll need to walk around this section to get all the yums (little pink things) you should have 12 things eaten by the time you eat the Puff-Tor.

RIGHT when you gain the Puff-Tor power go back to the beginning where you disabled the first bridge. Use the power to jump up to that bridge and follow the path to the right, here you will find the snuffle.

After this you'll have to take a lift up to where two rocks are, there isn't anything in those rocks but destroy them anyways for it to count for the 'Ground and Pound' achievement. You should see some trees, there are some yums (little pink things) in the trees and you will have to use another lift to get to another elevated area. There are 3 elevated ares you'll have to get to.

By the time you get the water down to the bottom level in order to put out the Gastro (fire guy) you should have 38 things eaten.

Do NOT eat the Gastro unless you have 38 things eaten. If you lose the Puff-Tor power with less than 38 you'll have to restart.

Once you eat the Gastro you will have to burn some plants down and go back to the beginning of the level to burn some trees and eat some more yums. You will know which plants lead to the beginning because you will see trees behind them, and they will NOT be in water.

After this you will have to burn the plants to go to the next section, you will know which plants to burn because they will be right after a crashed plane, and they WILL be in water. By this point you should have 45 things eaten. There are 3 gastros to eat, so make sure you eat them.

Make sure to burn all the trees and destroy all the rocks in this section as alot of yums (little pink things) will be hidden there. Once you destroy the robot to get to the next section you should have 58 things eaten.

Then you will shoot fire over a gap to disable a shield barrier, but this point you should have 64 things eaten. After that you will burn an explosive and there will be a chain reaction to disable another shield barrier, by this point you should have 67 things eaten.

Then you will disable the final bridge and the soldier will explode into fireworks, at this point you should still have 67 things eaten. Slide down, and then walk up the hill, at the top turn right and you should see a path, follow this path and you will find the final three Gloobers (snails).

The ONLY problem you may have in this level involves the Puff-Tor power. All you have to do is MAKE SURE you eat 38 things eaten AND the Snuffle eaten. These are the only things you cannot come back to. Everything is very easy to find, I got 100% my first time, and only replayed to get the numbers for this guide.

Do NOT worry if you have managed to eat 38 things when you have the Puff-Tor power, you can come back to ANY section of the level with the Gastro power if you missed any of the non Puff-Tor things.

Hope this helps, had to do a second playthrough of the level so I could get accurate numbers.
