    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.

    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.

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    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.

    Did anybody read my article? It was actually really interesting. Looks like hunter-gatherers actually expend about the same amount of calories per day as people in market economies do on average, which was somewhere around 2000 calories. What was interesting is that although traditional farmers like those in Bolivia expend a lot more calories than either hunter-gatherer or market economy people, it's not all that terribly much more and there is more overlap than differences. They authors seem to think the amount of calories people expend is limited by our physiology, our genes and evolution. There's a limit and trying to push it too far has negative hormonal and other reprecussions. They also suggest the reason modern people are so much fatter than hunter-gatherers or farmers isn't because traditional people are burning way more calories, but because we eat too many calories.

    So how many calories was Grok eating? Probably around 2000k per day.

    Grok drank bulletproof coffee in the morning, shunned carbs in favor of the "eat moar fat" protocol, did periods of "steak and eggs" dieting, and made Paleo pancakes on Sundays.
    Then...after all of the above stopped working after a few months, he turned to resistant starches.
