80 Days to Fatness w Joe Abs Day 2

Today is Day 2 of my new program 80 Days to Fatness. Very sorry about the audio crack up – will use a different mic tomorrow … Today before noon I ate two chocolate croissants (580 calories each, about 10 m&m cookies, a banana (gotta eat something semi-healthy right?), two large handfuls of (salted) cashews, a huge, greasy grilled cheeseburger (with Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce) and a HUGE 32 oz chocolate malt with lots of ice cream and extra chocolate sauce.

While my wife eats a (very small) vegan diet and does her #80dayobsession @beachbody workouts, I am working to gain as much weight as possible in those same 80 days – and then I will attempt to get back to less than 10% bodyfat by summer …
