Is gorging and mixing kinds of meat at the same meal healthy? Know someone who tends to gorge on two meals a day having at least a 2 course meal and/or different kinds of meat like chicken and steak. Their weight is ok and workout but they have high bp.

I don't think gorging regularly is healthy, regardless of what is being gorged.

But I can't see why two kinds of meat at the same meal would be a worse kind of gorging than gorging only on one kind of meat.

What do you mean by gorging? Are they eating anything else besides meat?

Their BP may have nothing to do with their weight or their diet, but if they have poor eating habits (high fat
or salt content, alcohol, etc) that isn't going to help. Can't really comment based on almost NO specific information.

Define gorging? Sounds like they are eating an excessive amount of calories. Really doesn't matter what you are eating, if you are in caloric surplus you are going to run into problems. And the high blood pressure is not necessarily from the food. It could be from older age, genetics, stress, too much smoking, or too much drinking.

Right. A 2-course meal can be a salad and a main course, which might not be unhealthy if the person is eating 1200 calories in each balanced meal and exercising daily. Plenty of people do intermittent fasting, so they would eat more in a short 6-8 hour period than many people might eat throughout the day. That isn’t necessarily unhealthy unless the person is eating bad food. A salad with some chicken on it and a main course with salmon, wild rice, and broccoli is probably healthy even though it has 2 meats. 5 pieces of pizza with pepperoni, sausage, and ground beef and 2 cupcakes, not so much.

I've seen them eat 10 drum sticks, a sub and/or pizza for one meal. Or at a cookout cheese burgers, hot dogs and chicken at one meal.

For me a cheese burger would be a meal

The physiological purpose of the stomach (gastrum) is mostly to serve as a storage depot for your meal, letting the well mixed food, partially hydrolyzed & sterilized by the stomach acid, pass into the duodenum at a controlled rate. That prevents the duodenum and points distant from being overwhelmed and unable to thoroughly digest the food....It's kinda like the subway platform at rush hour-- only so many people can get on the next train. A crowd can build up waiting.


The general rule is that "your stomach is only as big as your fist." (but it does stretch). Eating larger amounts probably doesn't hurt you, although one does get that bloated feeling. That's due to a reflex that relaxes the frontal abdominal muscles. You don't really put that much food in there to account for the increase in abd volume.


Our hunting ancestors probably lived a life of feast or famine. Successful hunts occurred only every few days or even weeks, and there was no way to easily store excess meat-- they gorged on it when they could, and then slept it off. This is recorded in historical times in reference to the Am Indians of the Great Plaines who often ate 15 lb of buffalo beef at a time. (!!)

Context is always important. Is this person extremely active in the gym trying to gain muscle mass or is this person very sedentary and already obese. If it is the latter than this type of eating is very unhealthy and this person will most likely run into problems.

That's creepy that you are obsessed with someone else's eating habits.

Many people eat pizza and wings in the same meal or a hotdog and burger at a cookout.
