Default Food Challenges

(Before anyone says anything i am not obese or have any medical conditions)

Has anyone tried any Food Challenges (eating a large quantity of food within a time limit) ?

I am considering https://www.timeoutdubai.com/gallery...s?page=4&img=4

I haven't, but the scotch bonnet wings look doable. The noodle one is just mean though, you see the associated rules?

Not done any challenges like that, but once went for the unlimited ribs and pints at Meat & Co - they'd serve you massive beef ribs 3 at a time, and you'd get a pint of beer with each serving of 3 ribs.

I threw in the towel after my 7th rib - I was already at bursting point after 6 but I wanted another pint...

According to the waitress, the record was held by some American dude who put away 24. In second place, putting away 21 ribs was his wife. I'd hate to see the state of their toilet the next day.

I cant do any spicy challenges anymore - spice just kills my stomach .. (and

Ive never seen a list of rules as long as the noodles challenge - wonder why that is (apart from they dont want to pay up!)

I think someone in USA actually died doing one of these challenges - it was hamburgers.

I always fancy trying one of these, but not a spicy one. Maybe just one of the 1.5kg burgers....

The noodle ones rules are just mental!

Default Re: Food Challenges

There are some unbelievable people on YouTube, like BeardMeatsFood who is from Leeds. He can eat ridiculous amounts of food, like 35,000kcals in 24 hours, amongst other insane challenges. These guys are usually fit and slim as well. I don't know how they do it. If I eat too fast I get backed up. Must take some serious training.

EDIT: Googled deaths from competitive eating. Biggest cause is choking, it seems, and it's happened numerous times. Not surprising, really..
