Jeez cant the damn health/diet nazi's leave people alone just one day of the year?

Only 5,000 calories?
 
2013-11-28 01:07:32 PM
If you were a lumberjack, you'd be OK with a 5,000 Calorie dinner.

You'd even survive the buttered scones for tea.

Mmmmm ... buttered scones for tea. I should stop at the store on the way home.

A 5000 calorie nap?! What a country!
 
2013-11-28 01:15:46 PM
Still don't understand how showing images of starving kids is supposed to mean anything. If I want to eat 10000 calories today that's my choice and the fact that some other kid somewhere may be starving isn't relevant nor is it my problem. Timer for the turkey ia going off, brb.

5000 isn't a big number, when I tracked my calorie intake for 2 weeks I averaged 5500k a day, the bs 2000 a day is great for a senior citizen that doesn't do anything all day. For one meal, I have a hard time buying into it unless you're having pecan pie with every course.

All things in moderation, even excess.

I'm right around 1500 a day, and I'm active. I don't think I could eat 5500 calories in a day, I don't think it would fit.

I'm at 744 just from breakfast, I can't afford to risk eating Thanksgiving dinner, have to save room for the booze.
 
2013-11-28 01:40:39 PM
I can have 5 portions each of sweet potatoes, cranberry chutney, turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie without any caloric input at all!

What's my secret?

Tyrosine: All things in moderation, even excess.


So making a pumpkin pie, a pecan pie, an apple-walnut-caramel pie, and a triple chocolate cake for Thanksgiving desserts was moderating excess, but had I actually made a salted-caramel cheesecake as well would have been excessively excessive.

Wait, now.  I thought the average Americans were skipping the nap and headed out for Target, WalMart, Best Buy and Big Butts. I meant Big Lots.  Whatever.

The old Lady and my Journeyman are teaming up for Thanksgiving, from the way it is shaping up 5000 may be too low by half, turkey, ham, stuffing, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, potato salad, roast potatos, mashed potatos, and even twice baked potatos, macaroni salad, slaw, 3 different types of buttered rolls. I can feel my belt creaking just looking at it all

/dessert is red velvet cake, ice cream and pecan pie

So there's active and there's active.

I left my freshman year of college at 280 (6'4".  Fat, not Hoveround) and dropped back down to 240 while averaging 4K calories a day.  But I was working at the golf course while I did it, where a day might consist of rebuilding all the traps by hand or lugging a couple of 100 pound pumps around the course.

/You just end up eating like 4 meals and 2 snacks a day.  It's not like you're eating 5500 calories at one sitting.

Yeah, bigger people need more than smaller people, I'm not saying you're wrong in any way.

I also think fatties should be fatties if they want to be. Eat whatever the fark you want, especially over the holidays.

And a 5000 calorie dump later on tonight.

Same here only my landscaping company is called 'Padres' and there are about 8 of them.

4,500 calories? Average American?

Apparently I am an above-average American. USA!! USA!!

hardinparamedic: What is....Appetizers...

[2.bp.blogspot.com image 320x211]


Too boney, not enough meat on them even as appetizers.

I injected our turkey with a mix of apple cider, palm sugar, meat tenderizer and peppercorns (boiled all the ingredients together then strained them). It turned out very nicely.

/Upon seeing the pics of the starving children I guess it would be in poor taste to say we bought 2 turkeys this year; one for us and one for our nine cats.
//they are dead serious about poultry

I call bullshiat.  I couldnt eat 5,000 calories in one sitting if I tried....  and I  have tried.

I'm up to about 900 calories per day and holding steady at 138 lbs.

\yippee!
\\5'10"
\\\so what?

It's ok.  As long as it's all gluten free.
 
2013-11-28 03:09:47 PM
It's called a "feast" for a reason.  A couple big meals a year won't kill you.  Now bring my my thanksgiving/ maternity pants!

I can eat up to 10K a day when bike racing, but for most people that won't end well.

Dead for Tax Reasons: 5000 calories?  i plan on drinking that much


I think I'm nearly there. However, I will put two hours on the treadmill today.

Dinner is a baloney samich and a Mexican coke.  While at work.  Wishing I had some venison.  Or some rabbit.

I ate my quota. Thanks to Subby for the submission, it was helpful to know the standard.

Hey hey, us skinnies can pack it in too, most professional eaters aren't fatties, I'm 5`10" 150lbs, my friend was 300, he could fill up 5 plates, I'd max at 3, but in 30 minutes I could go again, he was down for like 2 hours.
