Jaroslav Bobrowski is a German triathlete. He's is 5'7", weighs 174 pounds, and has less than 10% body fat. Based on his stats, one would imagine Bobrowski survives solely on a well-balanced, strategically-proportioned diet, right? Wrong.


Bobrowski has adopted a unique diet similar to that of intermittent fasting. The typical approach to intermittent fasting is to fast for 16 hours a day and to consume your day's calories within an eight-hour time frame. Other methods involve fasting for a 24-hour period twice a week, or eating only 500-600 calories twice a week and eating normally the rest of the week.

Bobrowski's method is more extreme. He fasts for a 20-hour period, consuming his day's calories in four hours.

Recently he chose Running Sushi, an all-you-can-eat conveyor belt sushi restaurant in Landshut, Germany, as the place for his daily binge.

While at the restaurant, Bobrowski consumed a whopping 100 plates of sushi. Furthermore, the restaurant's Trip Advisor page pictures two to three pieces of sushi per plate. That means Bobrowski probably ate somewhere around 200-300 pieces of sushi.

Some have estimated that he ate 4,000 calories in that sitting, possibly 18 pounds worth of food.

So, what happens when you eat that much sushi at an all-you-can-eat sushi buffet? You get banned.

The athlete said:

When I went to the checkout, I wanted to tip, but the waiter did not want to accept that. I'm banned from now on because I'm eating too much. I was stunned.

The buffet costs โ‚ฌ15.90, or approximately $18, for supposedly unlimited food. Because of their pricing, the restaurant makes money only from drinks.

Running Sushi's owner, Tan Le, spoke about why they chose to ban Jaroslav:

I myself am dead after 13 plates, but he always took five or seven plates at a time, so there was a gap on the sushi carousel and the other guests asked if we had skimped on the fish. I want to win customers and not offend any guests. But at โ‚ฌ15.90 for unlimited sushi, we only earn money on the drinks and he only consumed one tea the whole evening.

Many people couldn't help but think of another famous guy who was also banned from an all-you-can-eat buffet.



Others were stunned at his eating skills.

#IL eat as much as you could-the restaurant burned the coil: The German man was banned-"the waiter said I'm eating too much" #JaroslavBobrowski #SouthGermannewspaper



But some people felt the restaurant didn't live up to its name.


It seems as though Running Sushi has since amended their rules.

It also looks as though Bobrowski is not the only athlete who has been banned from an all-you-can-eat joint.

He does, however, seem to be the only "sushi man." Bobrowski will continue his pursuits at another buffet, China City.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experienceโ€”it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
