In attempts to be hip and cool I have attempted the 10,000 calories challenge. Or rather the ten million calorie challenge if we want to call it by how it feels.
Feel free to not do this at home. I was very nervous that this would be physically uncomfortable. I was surprised that it wasn’t uncomfortable. I did sit in the bathroom for about an hour after filming the last clip unsure of which way this would end. I’m happy to report that hanging out in the bathroom was more of a safely measure than anything I ended up using.
This was NOT easy. Dude I have a huge appetite. I feel like I could eat twice as much as everyone around me without a second thought. Now I knew 10K was significantly more than my daily intake but I was shocked my how challenging it was just to hit 3,000 calories. It just doesn’t make sense. The best I can think is that I either over estimated my capacity to eat or………. I started with the wrong damn opening meal.
I’m guessing I picked the wrong first meal because it pretty much killed my hunger. My hunger was gone from 9am on!!! Never in a million years would I have thought that this challenge could have been ZERO pleasure.
Again, I have zero pleasure while doing this. I love food. I didn’t buy food I didn’t like. It just makes no sense. There’s part of me that wants to try this again but come at it from a different angle. But I doubt it. The few hours after I completed the challenge my brain kept saying, “dude, don’t do this again. Just no”.
The sound quality is less than stellar so I hope you will forgive me. I filmed this outside while it was lightly raining which didn’t help with the sound issues. I started this video nervous as hell but by the end I was glad to have given it a try.
For anyone new to the blog all the music in the video is from Mark & Me. Full album is on Bandcamp.
