We did the math, and his eight meal a day diet clocks in at over 10,000 calories. And that's on the low end of the spectrum, given that we didn't calculate the calories in his greens, protein powder, and his "handful" of almonds, which is probably a lot more almonds than the average person can fit in their hands.
