Why in the world would anyone do this to themselves? He says he wants to show others how to get fit and to experience what it feels like to be fat. There is no way in hell you could get me to gain weight and get fat on purpose. No freakin' way. I would be so worried about what it was doing to my overall health that I just couldn't do it. Not to mention, what if, by some freak of nature, you couldn't get the weight off and back to your previous self??
He has a blog which chronicals his journey. The strange thing is, if you look at a sample of his daily food intake, that diet is not really that off the wall. Here's a sample from his blog:
Except for the total lack of vegetables and fruit, it really isn't the gorging amounts of food that you might expect him to be eating to gain all that weight. I mean, it is a lot of food, but I'll bet it's pretty average compared to the average American man's diet. I am really anxious to see what his diet is when he goes from fat to fit. I know that I can make changes to my diet to eat better than I am.
What do you think about this challenge?
Would you ever gain weight on purpose?
