If you thought The Rock and Michael Phelps’ 10,000 calorie diets were insane—that’s child’s play compared to San Diego Chargers Linebacker Brock Hekking’s eating habits.

Hekking proved he is indeed the king of calorie consumption with a thirty-second video clip of him devouring exactly 21,396 calories, filmed by Bleacher Report.

In an impressive 43 minutes, Hekkin was able to down (what looks like) the entire menu at San Diego institution Phil’s BBQ. His insane meal consisted of racks of ribs, plates of onion rings, bowls of mash potatoes, and plenty of Gatorade.


Although Hekking’s caloric meal can’t be topped, these athletes prove just how successful one can be on calorie-dense meals:
