30 Bananas a Day!

To those that know more about the science of this lifestyle (I'm still reading!)...  I believe in hclf raw, but if you're eating say 6000 calories a day and not a hardcore athlete (ie, Michael Phelps)....

Where DO the calories go?   From what I understand about thermogenesis, only a small percentage of calories is burned that way.  Not enough to make up for 1,000's of calories that are taken in surplus.

Please share what you think.

If your not an athlete why would you be eating 6,000 calories a day? 

Some people eat 15,000+ a day. 

They're commonly known as the "obese" humans. 

lol, there's her answer! 

too funny.

I meant in relation to "unlimited carbs"  - the 6,000 was just an example.

If you weren't active I doubt you could eat 6,000 calories a day (for very long), even if it's raw high carb, low fat. 

But if you were eating 6,000 calories a day and sitting around staring at the walls I would assume your body would start storing some as fat eventually. At least it wouldn't be toxic fat and it would be easy to release if you just upped your activity level. 

I've noticed the more carbs (calories) I eat the more active I become. My body finds a way to burn them off; it's not really an option not too. It would be too hard to be inactive and eat that much. 

Good point.  Thanks, KGG.
