Famous Man Died From Taking In Enough Calories To Keep An Elephant Alive

The most important weight loss tip has to do with your food intake. Many times the mistake we make is to try and complicate the whole controversial weight issue when it would be more prudent to start with the very basics.

To date the simplest and most valuable weight loss tip is simple watching your calorie intake.

It may be useful to remember this real life story about this famous man who would comfortably take enough calories in a day to keep an elephant alive. And yet the most exercise he would ever get round to doing would be getting up from his couch to get the next high calorie snack to gorge himself with.

Actually food addiction sound harmless enough but experts now insist that this very famous man, well known across the States and indeed all over the world was killed prematurely by his love for food.

We all need a minimum of 1,500 to 1,800 calories every day to stay alive. People doing heavy work and therefore burning lots of calories need even more calories and may require up to about 10,000 calories per day.

Now it is documented that this man I am referring to was consuming over 85,000 calories per day and was sitting around doing nothing more strenuous than reaching forward to flip the channels on his TV set.

The truth is that 85,000 calories is more than enough to keep a full grown elephant alive. And it goes without saying that stuffing one’s body with that kind of calorie intake is bound to cause serious problems as they did fro this individual.
