What had happened was, my heart rate got below 35 beats a minute. And it set off the alarms that this dude’s dying. Right? [Laughs] So they drew blood, and my blood was clean. Everything was clean because I wasn’t eating anything. And everything was healthy. I was doing three hours of cardio a day. But at night, my body was dropping like 27 beats a minute, and that set the alarms off. So this kept happening over and over throughout the first night, and they kicked me out.
And you disagreed with this decision?
We needed that money! I was so upset that I ended up going to McDonald’s and getting a Big Mac, eating half of it and then passing out in my bed with half a Big Mac in my hand.
And this is one of those funny things. If you’ve been starving for a long time and you eat food, you become so immediately exhausted. It’s really crazy.
I remember reading about the special foods that they make for starving children because they can’t safely feed them normal food. The shock to the system could kill them.
Yeah. It’s crazy. So at this point I’m about 150. My goal was to be Christian Bale. Christian Bale broke down at like 117. My goal was to beat him. So remember, at this point I was doing three hours of cardio. I was running on 400 calories a day. And I still wasn’t losing weight. So then it was time to switch to an apple and a can of tuna.
