"I had me a couple beers, ate some snacks afterwards. I wasn't necessarily very full," he says. "It was just leaves." Just 408oz of leaves, like any other weekend.
And he doesn't usually eat kale
"I don't eat salad, I just juice [kale] with some yogurt, strawberries, whatever fruits I have available," he says. "I'm not a big salad person."
So much kale was actually easy on his digestive system
You know that gurgling feeling your stomach gets after you consume too many fibrous foods, and you find yourself rushing to the nearest bathroom? Gideon didn't have that problem. At all. Which goes to show that you kind of have to be born with the competitive-eater gene.
"That's why I do competitive eating, because my body is like a machine, it gets rid of whatever I put through it," he says. "My body digests food fast, so I didn't really go through any pain or anything like that... I actually felt good for a couple days after."
His poop did not turn green
"Let's just say after [eating all the] kale, I had a bunch of other stuff. It came out regular." This seems... hard to believe, but athletes are not mere mortals.
