The Chuckster loves his food, especially if it’s doughnuts. We all know the former Suns forward has a sweet tooth. Nonetheless, he once took it to another level, narrating an instance of consuming twelve Krispy Kreme doughnuts in a single day.

“Did I tell you the day I had the 12 doughnuts,” Barkley told Ernie Johnson and Tim Kiely.

“I broke it up into 3 meals. It was one Sunday morning and I said, ‘I just want some Krispy Kreme.’ So I ordered a dozen and I says, ‘imma break it up into 3 meals.’ That’s all I ate the whole day. I had some restraint. I ate some about 9 o’clock in the morning, I ate some about 2 o’clock in the afternoon and I ate about 7 o’clock at night. It was a great meal day.
When told you’re very proud of it, Barkley hilariously replied,
“I am proud of that. I could have ate them all in one sitting. Cause I told you Boy, when that hot sign on, your car just going into that little hot sign. That hot sign is dangerous.”

Currently weighing 252lbs, Barkley has been quite careful of his diet off-late, having adopted intermittent fasting to shed the extra pounds, stating he only ate between 5 pm and 8 pm.
