Just how much is 6,000 calories per day? Caboclo could have three Big Macs for breakfast, lunch and dinner and still not meet the quota.

He could eat 100 slices of Canadian bacon every day.

He could eat 192 Brazil nuts.

He could eat three-fifths of a Strasburger.

Basically he is the luckiest man in the world.
