WTF?

Dennis Quaid Says He's Battling 'Manorexia'
UPDATED: 1:50 pm EST March 13, 2006

Actor Dennis Quaid said he is getting professional help for what he calls "manorexia" -- the male version of anorexia.

In an interview with "Best Life Magazine," Quaid said his eating disorder apparently began in 1994 as he prepared to play emaciated Doc Holliday for the film "Wyatt Earp." He said he lost 40 pounds for the role and weighed only 130 pounds when shooting began.

He said at the time he was eating less than 600 calories a day, according to the report. Now, he sees fat in the mirror no matter how thin he becomes, the report said.

Quaid said he is coming forward and talking about the problem so other men will get help.

I think Kilmer played a better Holliday.

Maybe Dennis is still upset about that.

I don't think it's physically possible for a human to consume 600,000 calories a day.

No, 600.



What most people call "calories" involving food is actually kilocalories. People actually eat about 2,000,000 calories a day, not 2,000. But few people call it that, other than scientists.

He needs to see a personal trainer.

I think Randy Quaid made up for Dennis's anorexia.
Link Posted: 3/13/2006 12:45:21 PM EDT
Alright, alright, 600 Kcals is more correct but heck, unless Dennis Quaid is publishing his findings in Nature or something, I wouldn't worry about it...

That about sums it up. It's pretty nitpicky.


And why in the blue fuck is he referring to it as "manorexia"?

Since when is anorexia a female-only thing that requires a new name when a man does the same damn thing?

A calorie is the amount of energy it takes to increase the temperature of one gram of water (or, more or less, 1 mililiter) one degree Celcius. A Calorie (kilocalorie) is the amount of energy that would increase the temperature of 1 kilogram of water (or, more or less, one liter), 1 degree Celcius.

1Calorie=1kilo-calorie=1000 calories

The food unit of energy is spelled the same as the chemistry unit except it is capitalized and represents 1000X more energy.

I have always struggled with the fact that no matter how hard I try i cant define my stomach. I just can not seem to burn away the layer of fat. I so 20 pull ups, 80 situps, and I can run 8 min miles. ( well, 8min 40 sec) and never have I felt weak. Just maybe a lil chubby in a bathing suit.

I weigh 250lbs depending on what I eat. I am 6'4" and propotional in build. I got over it at about age 25, when all my friends who were getting stripped and riped were also getting sick. I never get sick like most skinny minnis. I do get an occational fever, ort a cold. But it does not stop me from workin.


Fat is a healthy. Sit back look around and enjoy the view. In the animal kingdom, Skinny animals are poor foragers, or dinner....

Looking at his sallow complexion and the way he's thin that he likes the brown junk.

The poppy.

Black tar.

Heroine.
