I've pretty much lost my ability to gorge thanks to my diet (my stomache has really shrunk a lot) but on the subject of tiny people packing away a lot of food:

Back in highschool we used to go to an all you can eat pizza buffet. At that place we commited sins against nature and human decency, so much so that every time we went they raised the price the next day.

Still none was as crazy as Kamada... a short chilango * (probably 5'4") and skinny to boot the guy once put away 16 "pizza sandwiches". This was basically a slice of pizza, spaggety and another slice... In second place was Alberto (El Gordo) who put away 23 regular slices (pretty far from Kamadas record and probably weighed almost twice as much as him). Personally I would go to gorge on the salad bar hitting them where it hurts... worse part is we wouldent buy sodas. When they would stop sending pitchers of water we would take oranges from the salad bar to wash the food down.


* Chilango: Mexico city native, usually known for being short and skinny.

Note folks:

53.5 Nathans Hotdogs and buns is 750% of recommended government daily allowance for for things like calories.

One really early morning when I couldn't sleep I flipped on the tv and saw this eating contest show and it had the Takeru guy on there. I have never been so amazed and disgusted in my life. Amazed that this "rail" of a person could eat so many hotdogs and was just going like there was no tomorrow and disgusted because it really is gross watching people pack in as many hotdogs as they can as quick as they can. A lot of people were getting sick and being sloppy. It was gross but I just couldn't turn the channel.....
