A ripped influencer has revealed that 400 eggs would only last him four days as he aims to eat up to 12 meals a day.
Florida-based Fernando Torraca, also known as The King of Diet on TikTok, claimed he has been training for 19 years and part of that involved eating 100 eggs per day.
“I eat 7 to 8 to 10 times a day, which involves a lot of protein,” he said.
Mr Torraca revealed he eats up to 5 pounds of meat a day “pretty easily”, which is the equivalent of 2.27kg.
“I’m basically shooting for 10 meals a day, sometimes 12. basically eating every hour or hour and a half,” he revealed.
As the bodybuilder spoke over the video clip, he shared images of himself buying 400 eggs, revealing it would only last him four days.
The eggs were loaded into a huge basket at the store before Mr Torraca took the eggs home and cracked them.
He separated the egg whites and yolks, saying he ate 100 eggs a day – the daily recommended intake of eggs is 1 to 2, depending on other cholesterol factors.
But, after separating the eggs he then poured all the yolks down the drain, prompting fury from many followers.
“What the f**k are you doing, why are you throwing the egg yolk you’re wasting food,” one social media user said.
Another said: “Over the top and unnecessary what are you trying to achieve by that?”
One said: “100 eggs a day … I don’t believe that.”
Another added: “Bro how much money do u spend on that food 2 months salary?”
One suggested that the bodybuilder should just buy egg whites, while others praised him, calling him a “beast” and the “only guy who speaks the truth about bodybuilding”.
In a video from his YouTube channel, Mr Torraca revealed why he eats so many eggs each day and why he doesn’t strictly buy egg whites.
“I only put in two whole eggs, as that is all the fats I need,” he said as he separated his eggs for the day.
“All the guys say on my social media ‘why don’t you buy the bottle of egg whites’. First, I don’t like it, because I trust what I see,” he said.
“Second point, the taste is different.
“Third, I don’t buy because of money, this is my job, I’m a full-time body builder. It’s about the taste. I am in a strict diet, calorie deficit all year around. It’s not easy.”
He said he eats eggs because it’s what his body digests best, saying when he eats fish or chicken he becomes gassy, bloated and “looking six months pregnant”.
“My body doesn’t absorb that kind of protein. My body absorbs eggs really well. That’s why I eat a lot of eggs,” he said.
