When 11-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte tweeted a pic of himself shirtless and ready to consume the 10,000 calorie meal on the table in front of him, he left out some critical info. How long, exactly, does it take to eat 10,000 calories? The answer for most people is about five days. (The average American’s daily calorie intake is between 1,800 and 2,400 per day.) But Lochte looks like he’s just sitting down for a casual lunch–albeit one that comes in assorted Tupperware buckets.
Speaking of Tupperware–hello, plastic container king? Found you a spokesperson. With a nice smile too. Looks like the asparagus is drenched in soy sauce, a nice touch to get the salt count high. And seems like mac n’ cheese in the big lasagna tray. Right in front of him? That definitely seems to be enough chicken to intimidate Joey Chestnut. So how long does a lunch like that take?
