The machines I use at Anytime Fitness allow you to log in and track your progress so as you can see in the below photo it took me 17 hours on the treadmill to pass this mark. It got me thinking about how hard I’ve worked to do that and about some of my favourite treats that “Old Dave” used to consume on a very regular basis. So what does 10,000 calories equal?
If you wanted to consume 10,000 calories you could consume any of the following :
75 bottles of Budweiser Beer
18 Big Macs from McDonalds
20 orders of McDonalds Fries (Large Size)
33 bottles of Coke
20 Extra Large Tim Hortons Coffees
23 Bagel B.E.L.T’s from Tim Hortons
37 bags of All Dressed Potato Chips
9 Large Dairy Queen – Oreo Blizzards
21 slices of Meat Lovers Pizza from Pizza Hut
18 Fully Loaded baked potatoes from Wendy’s
105 strips of bacon
116 Chicken Wings - Note I used to go to a “All You Can Eat” wing night on Thursdays for 9.99 the scary thing is I used to consume about five lbs of wings on any given Thursday. That would roughly be about 5000 calories not to mention the amount of alcohol I would also consume would be about 6 or 7 pints of beer so that would be almost 6000 calories on one evening. It makes me sick to my stomach to think about that but when I look at the above list I know I’ll never go back to eating garbage like that.
