Not only the calories, but imagine how much food it would take to get to 30,000 calories. Unless one is over 1,000 lbs, your average person's stomach can't handle that much food. LOL I'm getting a stomach just imaging what it would be like LOL
I've yet to be able to find ANY info that validates your/our line of thinking. I've been wondering the same thing myself. If I took in that many calories, can my body absorb them all? I mean, diets talk about creating a calorie deficit daily to get rid of fat, because "calories in equals calories out", right? But if this is the case, when I eat 30,000 calories, if I only use 2000 that day, then why don't I gain 8 pounds (3500 per pound) of fat, just like that?
We know that doesn't happen, even in a less dramatic binge of maybe 10000 cals. SO, what happens??? I cannot find any answer online that truly lay this out.
My guess? That the intestines have a upper threshold of "saturation" where so much work is being done, all the lining is fully working to its maximum. Kind of like when you mix salt with water. At the saturation point, the salt will no longer dissolve (unless you raise the temp). Perhaps our intestines have a saturation point?
