Red face Man vs. Food (TV show)

How the bejeebus has the presenter of Man vs. Food (I'm watching it on Dave) not been killed by a huuuuuuuuuuuge heart attack yet??? That guy eats so much, and so unhealthily, I feel like I'm going to have a coronary just watching. Unbelievable!

Note: Yes, I am that bored that I am watching Dave. Sundays can be sloooooooow.

Probably has to do with genetics in part. Some people are more prone to having their bodies fail in certain ways if not properly taken care of. That and he's probably taking medication or supplements to help control cholesterol and the like.

Personally I eat like he does when I get the chance. I figure if food is going to kill me, might as well go out having enjoyed it at least. If something is on a health food "don't eat this" list somewhere I figure it has to be delicious.

Binge and purge?

Or: Wait, it's coming.

Or: He tastes, but doesn't eat the whole thing.

I can't even stomach thinking about the crap I've seen him eat right now. Blegh.

He actually stopped actively participating in the latest seasons for the exact reason you described: He was going to die.

Richmond now has a group of proteges that he uses for all the challenges and acts as their "coach". I stopped watching the show after that change up because when it became a team effort the challenge seemed less engaging.

It was a good show when it started, though. I once tried one of those buffalo wing challenges at a place called Buffalo Wing University. A basket of 10 wings coated with what can only charitably be described as "mace". I managed to get through 5 before throwing in the towel.

I'm glad I did, too, because I think one more might have killed me.

From what I've read [wikipedia & his twitter mainly] he had a very low protein/vegetarian diet between challenges and is now back to that diet full time after [as noted] becoming coach.
