Food Theory: The Challenge That Nearly KILLED MrBeast!

Food Theory: The Challenge That Nearly KILLED MrBeast!

When I saw @MrBeast put out a video called ‘I Didn’t Eat Food For 30 Days’, I knew I would need to talk about it. See, that sounds like a DANGEROUS challenge on the surface. When you actually watch the video and get context, well, yeah it’s still a worrisome idea. Between the challenge and Gordon Ramsey trying to feed him a bad meal, there is a LOT to break down here.

    In WW2, when the Americans liberated the concentration camp “Saint-Cyprien”, located in France. The American troops wanted to feed the newly freed Camp Prisoners because they have been starving.

    Without knowing what would happen if they would feed them heavy food, literally seconds after liberating them. The soldiers, thinking it was the right thing, started giving the Prisoners Apples, Sandwiches, and even Chocolates.
    Leading to a lot of Prisoners dying.

    After that incident, the Science team gave out an order to not feed the prisoners in the camps and to let the Medical Staff feed them first.
    It was mostly a slow input of light soup.

    What was interesting is that during his Willy Wonka video you could tell his energy levels were low…but had no idea it was due to the challenge he was doing at the time. I figured it was from trying to put together the crazy factory.

    As a recovering ED patient, refeeding syndrome is NO JOKE. I went over 3 weeks once without anything solid (water and a single popsicle a day), only to break the fast at a band dinner celebrating the end of the season. Spent the next day hugging the toilet…

    Mr Beast truly is the reverse Chris McLean, his challenges are reasonably safe and rewarding to every contestant, and he saves the real dangers for himself.

    I remember when learning about the Holocaust a huge problem was this exactly. They had been so starved and worked that when it was all finally over and they were rescued people were having to just eat small amounts of chocolate despite being absolutely starving.

    Never before has a Food/Film/Game theory made me so worried about someone else’s heath or even mortality. Seriously, I actually got stressed hearing about how dangerous this challenge was.

    This should be interesting. Can’t wait to watch. Speaking of challenges, anyone want to see Matpat do a food theory on competitive eating? Maybe making a challenge that would literally be impossible.

  8. NathanDaGreat :p says:

    It’s great that Mat posted how harmful this actually is because I felt like kids might go and try it without thinking about things like refeeding and jimmy being constantly watched by doctors.

    I’ve fasted for 2 months, culminating in 5 days with absolutely nothing, not even water. On my last day on/first day off, several people tried to give me food, and I had to keep explaining that I couldn’t eat it. It took about 5 days of slowly eating heavier things before I felt confident to say that I counted as eating again.

    Currently fasting again. As a diabetic, I have to be even more careful and drink a few things (like various milks and juices) to do it, but as long as you listen to your body, it lets you know if there’s a problem.
