Calorie Consumptions of X-Men’s Wolverine, Andy Murray, Tour de France Cyclists and Arctic Explorers

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Christmas is around the corner and what is more related to this holiday if not food. Just lots and lots of it. foodpanda , a mobile and online food ordering marketplace, estimated and matched the sum of food that is actually eaten in just one meal.

foodpanda together with its affiliated brands hellofood and Delivery Club, is active in 38 countries on five continents. The company enables restaurants to become visible in the online and mobile world and provides them with a constantly evolving online technology. For consumers, foodpanda/hellofood offer the convenience to order food online and the widest gastronomic range, from which they can choose their favorite meal on the web or via the app.

In the 13th Century, the medieval occasion ran for 12 days, with lavish feasts every day. Today, an excessive American Christmas meal for just one day means food compositions that equal a 6,000 calories consumption for the average person. This is equivalent to eating 117 biscuits, or 42 bananas, or 23 and a half hamburgers- to name a few.

Now let's look into the American Christmas meals consumed by X-Men’s Wolverine, Andy Murray, Tour de France cyclists and Arctic explorers.

6,000 calories a day is the amount that Hugh Jackman was consuming to match his role in Darren Aronovsky’s Wolverine film, matching the sum total of what Andy Murray, British number 1 tennis player, eats daily. That is identical to the amount that Olympic biathletes need for their training, Tour de France cyclists to sustain a day’s race and Arctic explorers to endure a day on the ice.

From sitting at the kids’ table, to still sitting at the kids’ table (when this clearly shouldn’t be the case), to quietly sitting in a corner hungover, to being the host, the Christmas table experience somehow remains unchanged. Whatever the seat this year and despite all the arguments or various embarrassments, there is one thing they all share in common: the heaviness from the very amount (and wild combination) of foods.

As a food-centric holiday it attracts into its orbit an excessive troop of foods that is not really encountered the rest of the year. And the reason for that is probably because it takes 364 days to digest them. Here is foodpanda/hellofood’s comparative gastronomy selection of a typical American Christmas feast.
