No. Because in Man v. Food, food wins by not getting eaten, and Adam Richman did not lose 60 pounds by eating all the food. Food wins. Food always wins.

He has to have pretty good genetics, because he wasn't nearly as obese as he should have been when he was on that show.

InmanRoshi: He has to have pretty good genetics, because he wasn't nearly as obese as he should have been when he was on that show.


Eh, he was starting to get a biatchunky towards the end, but depending how often they scheduled the episodes, and what he ate between them, there's no reason that he couldn't have binged for the challenges but made up for it on other days.

I remember hearing that he came down with heart disease near the end of his run, which is why we were left with the inferior "Random People Who Aren't Adam Richman Vs. Food" show.

Though I enjoyed seeing the various dives he went to during MVF, I never agreed w/the premise that every stop had to be a gluttonous challenge.  Plus the show ruined potentially good hot wings and made them into a delivery device of pain.

He was shooting almost an entire week in every city eating crap around the city before he even got into the "main challenge".   That's not counting travel days where it's hard for even the most disciplined to stay on diet.      You could tell when he was on the show he had a natural mesomorphic  body type.    If he was a endomorph he would have been 400 lbs.

who found fame by taking on gluttonous food challenges such as an 8-lb. platter of steak and fries covered in mushroom sauce and cheese (he lost that one because of meat sweats)

Dare I ponder?

My saying always equals winning. It's good of you to notice.

He certainly looks a lot healthier.

He may well have a natural metabolism that helps him, but on those food and travel shows the host rarely eats the entire dish of whatever they're presented with.  When you see Anthony Bourdain or Andrew Zimmerman presented with enough food to feed a small army, or when you see Andrew Richman or Guy Fietti presented with multiple dishes at multiple restaurants throughout the day, they'll take a few bites for the camera, but then when the cameras turn off a lot of that gets shared with the camera crew, producers, people behind the scenes, etc.

You've probably noticed that you feel warmer after a meal, because eating increases body temperature.  Some foods, especially high protein foods, do so a lot.  If you eat a lot of high protein food really quickly, you'll start to sweat to release some of that heat.
 
2013-09-15 04:59:38 PM  
Good for him. He seems like a nice guy, though not as funny as he thinks he is. And if you think he went around eating that crap 24/7 you're an idiot.
 
2013-09-15 05:09:41 PM  
I never would have recognized him if the "after" picture hadn't been labeled.

Eating less and exercising more makes man lose weight. News at eleven.

You were probably looking for that other show, Man and Also Food.  This guy was in Man vs. Food.

Thanks, especially for a real answer. And now, let's here the Fark ones!

I remember reading an article about him in men's health(glad I never paid for it). I don't know if it was BS but he did talk about doing deadlift a and HIIT before food challenges. I know that makes me feel like I need to completely pig out.

Oprah won the battle against food several times.

Jonah Hill won the battle against food.

Time will tell what happens in the war. The body isn't as malleable as you'd like to believe.

Are meat sweats like ketchup sweats?

The top of my starts sweating profusely head when I eat ketchup...

From what I understand Guy Fieri eats everything within his wingspan.

If so he maintains his figure pretty well.  I mean, he's not thin, but he's not fat either.

He is oddly picky, I've seen a few episodes where he's weirded out by eggs and organ meats.  I can halfway understand organ meats, but for someone who owns a few restaurants and has (had?) a cooking show, I'd expect him to get over that.  The aversion to eggs is really bizarre though.

TuteTibiImperes: The aversion to eggs is really bizarre though


Mrs.AltheaToldMe has a pretty good aversion to eggs based on the smell of cooking them alone.  She will, however, eat an omelet if it has onions, peppers and smoked Gouda in it.

She also had an aversion to several foods based on the textural feel in her mouth alone.  Bananas for instance.  She won't touch them fresh, but enjoys the taste if I dehydrate them.

Strange.

My wife and I share a food texture aversion. I love the flavor of onions, peppers, and garlic, but can't stand the texture. Unless they're fried or dehydrated to a crisp, I can't stand to bite into them. Similarly with mushrooms, I enjoy the flavors of some, but just can't stand to bite into them. I can enjoy, say, portobello mushrooms, if they've been processed and are in a ravioli.

This leads to weird orders when eating out. I love a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, but I have to order it without the onions or peppers. Fortunately, many places season it with onion/chili powder to give the meat flavor before adding the veggies, so ordering without still gives the flavor.

Anymore I just make it at home, which also means a higher quality cheese sauce.

I'm gald I'm not the only one with this onion/pepper issue. I love the smell of them cooking, but if I bite into an onion, bad things happen. Ick.

Interesting.  I had never heard of textural aversions till I met the Mrs.  She is pleased to know that. while still strange, its not unheard of. She thought she was the only one.

She also detests tomatoes (for flavor reasons vs textural reasons), but LOVES and I do mean LOVES them dried and stored in olive oil and garlic.

As she and I were speaking about this, I recalled the very reason I will not eat raisins today.  When I was 8, I found out that raisins were shriveled up grapes.  I detested raisins since that day unless they are in Raisin Bran cereal and of that, I am not sure why.  I love grapes with a passion though.

Good for him. I used to weigh 240, now at 195 and still working to get below 190. Eating less (and paying attention to what and when and how much), and some exercise have done wonders.
