Everything in energy drinks is just to give you a boost in artificial heart rate. Taking a bunch of caffeine doesn't help you its bad for your heart.
Andrew Brooks (6 days ago)
Great to follow you Ross. Food for thought while you’re eating all those bananas: Banana Equivalent Radiation Dose https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana_equivalent_dose

Is there an intentional no-meat bias to the diet?
Calum Mc neill (1 day ago)
The chances you'll get to read this are slim I know but imma say it anyway, I have been going onto the red bull website to track your progress more or less everyday now for the past 3 weeks, and they have recently updated the page and it didn't have the map at first and just a list of your current world records you have broken and I legitimately thought you had to stop and didn't complete the swim, I was genuinely gutted but false alarm it was just me being a dumbass and didn't see the option to view the map lol well panic over but I just wanted to say what you're doing is fantastic and truly a testament to what you can do when you put your mind to anything!! Im rooting for ya bud! And to quote a rather fitting film finding Nemo "just keep swimming" lol !

I knew going bananas was a good thing after all.

So this means that swimming really doesn't burn that many calories in comparison to running

It's been amazing to see your incredible journey. How are you feeling? Anxious? Excited? to be so close to be done? What is the first thing you will do the next day you are done?

When you eat so much nut or not butter a day, do you have issues of swollen lymph nodes? And how about Rhabdomyolysis from the constant prolonged muscle breakdown?

Joe Horacki (6 days ago)
Do you ever just get bored of swimming every day?!?
vwhawley (6 days ago)
So I have a question: How are you going to recover from all of this? Swimming so much during a 24hr period then what? small swims when you're home? Going from 15,000 calories a day to what? You've adapted to this daily routine which is crazy cool!

What do you eat on land on a normal day, do you still have the micro-nutrient packs you use during your swim?
Bob Zombie (6 days ago)
Great video again Ross! You’re destroying this challenge 👍 it’s interesting to see how you effectively diet on a challenge of this magnitude. You got this 💪🇬🇧🌊 #InstrumentNotOrnament - love that!!

Hey Ross, are you going to write a book on your great British swim adventure? I would love to read everything that went into such a challenge, especially after reading your last book! and I'm sure others would be inspired too.

Better watch out Ross, bananas are slightly radioactive. 80,000,000 bananas and you will die of radiation poisoning.

WyomingBiking (6 days ago)
Hey Ross, how do you think you will feel when get back on land, do you think you'll feel like your at sea when trying to sleep, basically "LandSick"?
Cadan Harris (6 days ago)

Ross Are you using a Garmin to record metrics of the swim/ gps of the route?
Bo Tønnesen (6 days ago)
Hey Ross, you're a true champ. It's amazing what you are accomplishing. I wondered who is responsible for filming at editing your episodes? 😁 Best regards.
John son (6 days ago)
Jesus.... I used to eat 4-6 k calories a day when I was bulked up and sometimes I’d puke up my food swallow it and then keep going.. how you’re eating 15k is beyond me! Question! Can you guys give a rough estimate on food costs just for Ross say per month or week? Cheers guys you’re all doing awesome! Keep it going #rhinoneck
Laurence Caines (6 days ago)
Ross, legend! Question about disruption to your circadian rhythm. How is having to wake up to swim middle of the night, or having to go to bed mid afternoon affecting your performance or wellbeing? I have to work night shifts and always feel gross when switching to nights or coming off a run of twilight shifts. How are you managing?
david1998boss (6 days ago)
So 2 or 3 more episodes till the end?

Martin King-Sheard (6 days ago)
Question Ross - loving watching your progress and truly inspirational. Can you talk us through your 6 hours off? Sleep, food but what else are you doing in that time and how does 6 hours on the boat compare to 6 hours in the water ..... does it go by MUCH quicker on the boat??
John son (6 days ago)
Martin King-Sheard yes!

Hey crew, Why did the vegan cross the road?? ..to tell Ross to go vegan for victory, hey, but seriously, noodles, oats, banana's, and a bunch of good greens, your there already! Do it for your/our blue planet and the joy of getting your bean bust'n biome up to health ...wetsuit buoyancy benefits too!
