I've always been curious about how high-level athletes eat. I got my first glimpse when Michael Phelps went viral with his 12,000-calorie diet so when I saw that Vice's MUNCHIES vertical was starting series of videos with athletes, well, I was pretty interested.
The first video follows strong man Robert Oberst, the second strongest man in America. It's labeled 20,000-calorie diet, but a funny thing happened along the way to the end of the 10-minute video. Instead of a sped up montage of an entire day's worth food consumed in 20 minutes, Vice follows Oberst as he waxes poetic on everything about food, fuel, family, and life.
