The 10k Calorie Challenge documentary

Honored to be interviewed for a documentary film from NYU Tisch documenting a young woman attempt the "10K Challenge." This doesn't relate to someone running a 10k, however, but instead consists of a healthy and active person consuming 10,000 calories in a 24 hour period.  This "challenge" is very prominent in the bodybuilder and weightlifting community. Looking at the 10k through a scientific lens, the director Mar-Walker Rippe explores the effects of an uncharacteristic surplus of nutrients on human behavior.
