this is very good question and I will answer 6, I have never seen a 500 lbs blackbear but I think I read some were that they can eat as much as 10% of their body weight.

If asking what he "can" eat...and you are. I will say 50plus also. I was packing 50 to 60 pounds of doughnuts to a bait a couple years ago and they ate all of them(plus the dirt underneath!) every night. but there was 3 bears (sow and 2 cubs) eating them.

This one I don't know. The biggest bears are usually found near dumps where they don't have to expend much energy travelling in search of food sources. And being a creature of opportunity, I expect they'd shovel it down as fast as they can wrap their mitts around it. So, I'd suspect they could easily pack away 50 lbs a day. But if someone were to tell me they only ate 10 lbs a day I'd buy that too because its all about metabolism, and in this situation a little food would go a long way.
