Yet they say they dont get paid livable wages.. The nerve
that some people have..
Like living wages, daily caloric requirements are also relative.

Nor had I eaten tasty meals to hit certain amount of calories. Mostly, it was pure enjoyment. I would usually fast 12-24-36 hours before I hit some unlucky restaurant (again, not in order to eat more but to enjoy more the food ---when you plow them teeth into a rich, juicy, rare steak with that fat on edges after a long fast it gives you almost an orgasmic feeling)
So, the dinner. How much food can you put on a 12, 13, 14 inch platter? Make a small pyramid on top of it, big enough so if you put anything else on it, you have a small avalanche running down on the floor. Most of that food will be grilled fatty beef, grilled pork, duck, basically everything you can find on a good grill ,all kinds of fried stuff, ets. Make a small side plate with vegetables, fresh, pickled, fried, whatever. Eat that. Repeat 4, 5, 6, 7 times depends on how hungry you are or how small are them dishes. I will speculate its about 3-4 pounds of food including bones ets. On each plate, that is. Lets cut it down to 2 -2.5 pounds of food eaten considering that there will be untasty pieces, bones, or something that will bore you.
Then its time for a snack. Fill up a plate or two with cheeses, olives, pickled onions, dry hams, different salamis of sorts ets. Eat it. I figure 1-1.5 pounds each plate. Then you go to a special cook who makes you pasta you like. Same guy makes some deserts like a big and fine pancake with real caramel on top of it. You'll get a couple of those later. After pasta, you go to the desert table . There is a tray of tiramisu-- i figure about 10-15-20 portions of what is normally served elsewhere-- all yours its too good to miss it. There are other cakes and pies too, make at least one full plate of'em (NOT a desert plate!) Repeat if its really good. Meantime you do all this, there are a couple of big plates of fruit went down to smooth everything down there--pineapples, peaches, kiwis ets.
Take a deep breath. We are almost done. Now its ice-cream time. I pretty much never ate less than 1kg. Usually closer to 2kg, I dont know how would you transfer that to gallons. Don't forget a handfull or two of walnuts/almonds with them.
Now we are done eating, but we are thirsty. After a nice smoke , a couple of 1 liter beers will do. Rarely a 2 liter coke instead (shame, I know). So, what is the count now?
