I really don't believe that adds up to 12,000, maybe 8,000...
Most likely not true. He probably takes in more like 7-8K calories.
Even if it was, it would only be that high for a few weeks a year. I know for a fact he doesn't take in 12 K calories a day year round.
Several people tell me they take in "like 7,000 calories," then I hear their diet and it's more like 2,500.
12000 is rediculous but clearly it works for him
The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all
kinds of talk, get told that you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron
will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference
point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in
the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It
never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two
hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.
