Bigger, Smaller, Bigger

A hypothetical fight between  UFC welterweight george St Pierre and UFC Middleweight Anderson Silva spawned an experiment by St Pierre’s trainers and what I can only assume is a masochist. Nate Green gained, cut and regained 20lbs in 34 days.  The first link has the full write up, here is a briefer link.

Here’s the key:

So how much food does it actually take to gain 20 pounds? I went through and added everything I ate in 28 days. Here it is:

  • 65 pounds of meat
  • 54 bananas
  • 84 scoops of protein powder
  • 72 pieces of bread
  • 36 sweet potatoes
  • 7 jars of almond butter
  • 5 jars of fruit jam
  • 8 jars of sauerkraut
  • 144 cups of vegetables
  • 36 pieces of fruit
  • 72 squares of dark chocolate
  • 8 bags of frozen blueberries and raspberries
  • 7 cans of coconut milk
  • 4 cartons of heavy whipping cream
