  • How many calories do you think Gronk was eating ?

    I think there's no way Gronk was eating the amount of calories that we eat today. It's hard for me to picture him eating 2500 calories a day on average. Am I wrong ?

      It's Grok not Gronk.
      I can't think of a catchy journal title but click here anyway.

        Grok was eating to satiety is my opinion. That meant some days could be as much as 3,000 calories other days as little as 1,000 or even less, with a few purely fasting days thrown in there.

        In the end, it probably all balanced out.
        "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

          Grok lived a harsh and short life; eating whatever he could kill or gather! It was an exsistence of „bellum omnium contra omnes“; cannibalism was the order of the day and there were few pleasures compared to nowadays! When food was present he ate nonstop for days and then starved until killing something again or becoming food himself for another hungry Grok or animal...

              Though many people here seem to think that s/he who can eat the most calories wins, I'm not sure if that's evolutionarily sound. There is X amount of food for Y number of people in the tribe. The person who needs the most calories might need to prove that s/he is worthy of those calories.

              We obviously have a shit-ton of calories available now. So, no proof is necessary. There is some research that those who eat the fewest calories live the longest. I don't know if it's good research or not. It resonates with me. While I love food, I don't want to have to eat 3000+ calories per day to be able to survive. It seems like a lot. A couple of meals per day of meat, more meat, and some fruit seems like a good jumping off point.

                2500 is the average recommendation for a sedentary male. This is far less than what Grok would need on average, and even less than a typical farmer would consume 40-50 years ago....hard work takes high calories especially if it is happening most of the day.
                Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                      dammit! you beat me to it

                      he's a 6'6", 265lb professional football player. i'm sure he can get away with about 4500 calories in the off season when he isn't training. but i'd imagine 6000-8000 calories during training and during the season

                        he burns plenty of cals when he's not in-training too.

                              Average can misleading due to seasons and wildlife cycles (Groks probably didn't meet in the cafeteria when the clock struck 12). Many important seafood, fruits, and nuts were available 2-4 weeks out of the year.

                              Some equatorial HG groups will increase their body mass by 20-30% near the end of the rainy season to prepare for the dry season since body fat is the most practical food storage available.
