Teen labelled ‘absolute animal’ after attempting to eat 10,000 calories in a day

A teen has left people stunned after a video of what he ate in a day went viral.

TikTok user @vinniemurphy1 regularly shares fitness tips and healthy recipes on his account, but it was his attempt at an eating challenge that got people talking.

In a clip that has been viewed more than 570,000 times, 19-year-old Vinnie says: “Right, this is what I eat in a day – 10,000 calorie edition.”

He starts the day strong with 200g of oats, M&Ms chocolate spread and Hershey’s milk chocolate drops, followed by three hot cross buns.

That put him at 1,939 calories before 7:20am – almost the recommended daily calorie intake for a woman

He then heads to McDonald’s where he ordered two double sausage and egg McMuffins, as well as the pancakes and sausage, which was 1,785 calories.

He said: “It’s just turned 10 o’clock and we’ve just demolished all of the McDonald’s.

“To be honest, I don’t feel that awful after that, but we’ll just have to see how it goes for the rest of the day.”

Vinnie then demolishes a bag of five white chocolate cookies from Tesco, which is 995 calories.

At 4,719 calories, Vinnie admits he’s feeling a little worse for wear – but he doesn’t stop there.

For lunch, he cooks nuggets and chips covered in Nando’s barbeque sauce, bringing his total so far to 5,960.

With still half a day to go, things are looking promising for Vinnie.

To hit that afternoon sweet craving, he devours three Turkish Delight bars and Galaxy Truffles from an Easter egg.

After “trying not to be sick all afternoon”, Vinnie moves on to the Galaxy Easter egg and a tub of Turkish Delight ice cream from his local ice cream shop.

He adds: “I did as much of it as I could. I’m at 8,500 calories – I’m not going to lie to you if I eat another mouthful of food I’m gonna puke, so I’m gonna leave it there. It has defeated me, but it is what it is.”

Since being posted, the video has racked up more than 77,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

One viewer was keen to know how much Vinnie weighed after completing the challenge, to which Vinnie replied saying: “For context, I was about 78 kilos two days ago.”

The video then cut to a set of scales the next morning, showing the weight of 80.2kg.

He then added: “Obviously I know it’s a lot of weight to gain, but it’s obviously just the weight of the food and it’ll come off in a few days.”
