Hey, everyone needs a cheat day every now and again, but eating 10,000 calories in 24 hours may just be a tad excessive. Actually, let's be real: it's a very, very bad idea.

Former Big Brother star and current YouTuber Skye Wheatley participated in the truly stupid 10,000 calorie challenge back in April, and documented her junk food-filled day on her channel. Wheatley ended up eating mass amounts of noodles, fried food, cookies and candy in order to meet the astronomical calorie count.

According to authoritynutrition.com, the average woman eats between 1500-2000 calories a day, and a man usually eats around 2000-2500 calories (these numbers tend to fluctuate based on a plethora of factors, including age, activity level and health). Basically, Wheatley ate a week's worth of calories in one day.

After posting the initial video, she updated her fans by reporting how she was feeling in the days following the challenge. Basically, not good.

Wheatley describes bloating, coughing, difficulty breathing, sore throat and a headache immediately following her 10,000 calorie excursion.

"It's been two days since I did the 10,000 calorie challenge. All of yesterday I was completely bedridden and literally could not breathe," Skye said into camera. "I'm trying to eat as healthy as possible. I woke up this morning wet and just sweating so badly, it's really toxic."

Hm. You don't say.
