This is Noah Spence's nine-meal, 9,000-calorie daily diet

Noah Spence is now half professional football player, half competitive eater.

Thanks to a nine-meal, 9,000-calorie daily diet, the Buccaneers' defensive end is up 35 pounds from the 228 pounds he weighed last summer. According to, he's bulked up without gaining significant body fat, too.

"I was 263 (pounds) today," Spence told ESPN's Jenna Laine. "I kind of just started playing with it (in the offseason) to see what works. I felt like if I just don't stop eating or drinking, I won't lose weight."

Gaining weight doesn't quite do Spence's process justice. The third-year pass rusher is officially cultivating mass.

Let's walk through his daily meal schedule, shall we?
