They have really long arms…
and very long torsos…
and super long legs…
You know what else they should say? That these men eat like a wild herd of teenage boys eternally high on appetite inducers. At least my tall man eats that much…Yep, Jacob feeds like a newborn. Stop being so dirty-minded, my Wicked Luvs; I’m just saying that he needs to eat every few hours. And if you don’t put something in his mouth, he gets cranky.
Left to his own devices, my he will would finish a gallon of milk, one third of a bag of bread, and more meat than I can eat in three days… he can ingest all this in one day. Also, he needs snacks between meals. His favorite snack is cottage cheese. Nope, he doesn’t need anything with it. He gobbles half a quart of cottage cheese… with a spoon… or adds water to it and drinks it straight from the jar.
The idea of drinking cottage cheese makes my belly bubble retching songs. Don’t get me wrong, I can eat five mangoes on one sitting, but my tummy can’t handle meats, cheeses, rich sauces… and I’m glad; for the alternative would probably make me burst.
So… to the sweet lady who emailed me to ask if I wouldn’t mind sharing some details about Jacob’s diet, in order for her to cook it for her husband, well… there you have it. If you feed any human being the selection (and amount) of food Jacob eats, you’d probably kill the poor fellow; unless the individual in question has the metabolism of a six feet and six inches green-eyed hummingbird.
About Jacob’s workout routine… well, he does a lot of physical work around the house. I help him by physically working him quite a bit, too. And as you can see, all that hot physicality works like a charm.
