    He could have mistaken kj for kcal, in that case 20kj is around 4.78kcal which would make more sense

    Yeah I think this guy is blowing wind,
    I had a very active metabolism and lifestyle in my 20's and I did go through a period when I ate about 7000 cal a day. I was also working a full time job and coming home to hand forge Damascus for 6 hours a day after my regular shift. Its a disgusting amount of food. 5 regular meals a day plus snacks. For almost 3 times that you would have to eat almost constantly, and it has been stated above, that it would not be feasible for a persons digestion to take care of all that food.
    My metabolism has slowed down now and I get the regular 2k plus or minus a few brownies

    this..or something like this.

    i remember in high school health class..2000 calories is really 20,000 calories..or kcal. the food industry thought food labeling would look awful, and decided to cut out a few zeros.

    Well, I was a nutrititionist in my past life and that is BS. Also, I know I sound like a snob but he works at Subway. He's either young and ignorant or old and uneducated.

    he's a kid. He seemed to like me when I went in with my work clothes on. I def. thought he was just mistaken, and maybe the surgeries just (slim) might put him up there.
