Don't Take This Girl to Minetta Tavern or Peter Luger

    1. "She apparently wasn't full so she ate a second one..."

      What, does she have a tapeworm? I can rarely eat more than 8 ounces of steak with other things on the plate, at a leisurely pace.

      But seriously, that's not eating, as I doubt much chewing was involved. I know they have strategies to do this, but I often wonder what changes are taking place in a body doing this in the short-term. (Think "meat sweats".) I'd love to see a medical article on the effect of what I can only describe as voluntary force-feeding.

      1. Not only the steak but also the side dishes -- bread rolls, baked potatoes, etc!! And she takes the time to season with salt!

        Previously she has done a single 72-oz steak in less than 3 minutes - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01...

        Competitive eaters are usually skinny (like this woman) because fat doesn't stretch -- so you don't want to have a fat layer on your belly.

        I would love to see a "Candid Camera" video of this women going to a steak house on a first date with some unsuspecting guy. Haha.

        1. She'd be a hit in Somalia.

          1. For the record she beat Nathan's hot dog champ Joey Chestnut's previous record.

            1. She also won Wingbowl so don't take her to Hooters either


              1. Here's a video of her eating a 72 oz steak in less than 3 minutes.


                1. I've always wondered if people who do these eating challenges throw it all up after? I don't see how it could be avoided. Aside from feeling sick from overeating, how do they avoid gaining copious amounts of weight from all that eating?

                  1. re: Kat

                    Seems to me, and I don't know anything.......

                    Wouldn't you have to rid yourself of the food before it starts to absorb in order not to appear on My 600 Pound Life?

                    At what point is that? Vomit ? Diarrhea ?

                    My thought is that one cannot consume that much physical substance and that many calories so it must be shredded somehow .

                      One competitive eater counseling others on preparation and "recovery"...

                      And this article on WebMD has quotes from Joey Chestnut: http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/fea...
