– Hi, I’m Ella and I’ve always
wondered where does food go? Like if I ate, I don’t know, a two pound burrito,
would I gain two pounds? I tried to Google it and I couldn’t find any answers. So we got an actual two pound burrito here and I’m gonna eat it and we’re gonna find out. So we asked Chipotle to give us a two pound burrito and this is what we got. But I wanna weigh it just to make sure. Two pounds, six ounces, or I guess that says five.
– Yeah. – Two pounds, five ounces. Eh, it’s close enough. So I’m gonna weigh myself
before this experiment and then I’m gonna weigh myself later on in the day, but I’m gonna make sure I wear the same exact outfit so that everything is the same. It’s for science. So here we go. Okay, 130.2. Okay, so will I be 132
at the end of the day? I’m excited to find out. I would also like to say that I don’t think people should eat this much food. Okay, like this is too much. I’m comfortable doing this for science but I also don’t recommend
that anyone does this. Oh my god, this is the biggest burrito I’ve ever seen in my life. I don’t know how much of this I’m going to actually be able to eat. I’ll do my best though. Okay, I just spilled some burrito out. Mm, it’s good though. I’m trying to eat it
fast so I don’t get full. No doctors or scientists could weigh in before I did this, right? No one had any answers? This is the only solve we had (laughs). Had a few bites, I’m gonna measure. It’s one pound and 13.2 ounces. So some of that went into me. Now I’m weighing. It seems like I went up a little. I’m now 130.6. That seems crazy. All right I’m gonna keep
eating this burrito. You know I was skeptical but maybe I guess it has to go somewhere. But I’m really falling off the wagon, I’m just trying to be healthy. (screams) Let’s keep going. It’s science, you guys. I feel like I’ve eaten about half. You guys, wow. I’m like kinda disturbing
myself a little bit. I didn’t think I could eat, I was like “I probably could eat a quarter, “like maybe four bites.” I can eat a lot, I guess. Coming to the end of my rope. I feel like I’m warm now. Sweating. Okay let’s weigh this. Eight ounces. Now I’m gonna weigh me. 31.6. So I have to account for the fact that I’m gonna be drinking water. So, this water weighs 15.2 ounces. Let’s see, I mean I’m just gonna drink it ’cause I’m very thirsty. Feels good to be drinking water. Well now I’m 132.8. So clearly the water did add something. I think this is a thing, you guys. I think that if you gain weight based on how heavy the food is. So I’ve been eating this two pound burrito for awhile, I have eight ounces left. I’m gonna call it there because I’m not ridiculous. I definitely gained the burrito weight. The burrito weight is here. So it’s the next morning and I’ve gone back to my original weight of 130. To be fair, I didn’t end up eating much for the rest of the day
because I was so full. So I really think that this experiment proves that the weight
of what you’re eating actually impacts your weight. You probably digest most
of it throughout the day. So what this really goes to show is that what we put in our body
is really important and we should be more mindful of that. (lively music) The things you do for science, you know? I’m a scientist.
