ECM has decided to start a new 40 day fast, and he made a new blog to record his progress. He’s quite a funny writer and you may want to bookmark the site and check in there once in a while to make sure that he is still alive. So far, he’s explained a little bit about it in the first few posts.
Here’s what’s on his menu for the next 40 days:
- 1 gallon of H2O/day.
- Beef/chicken bullion spiked w/ added salt 3-5x/day.
- Body fat, muscle tissue and major organs all day, every day, until I run out and/or die from severe internal bleeding.
- Everything else.
Q: Why are you doing a 40-day fast?
A: A couple of reasons:
1. I ate way way way too much over the holidays (the holidays, loosely defined as Halloween ‘09 through, uh, this Sunday) and have a lot more to lose than normal. (Normal being 10-15lbs; right now, though, I’m competing w/ King Hippo for bragging rights.)
2. To prove that I can.
(Yes, that’s right: this is primarily a misguided effort at proving to myself that I can, indeed, go the distance come hell or high water (or pass a McDonald’s without succumbing to the siren song of special sauce).)
And here is a picture of ECM, pre-fast:
You might think that this picture cannot be ECM, since he’s actually a beaver with a helmet.
But I think the beaver is actually just some video game character, and not really ECM.
Does anyone know the name of this beaver? I think it’s Sherbet or something.
