I've heard of pancake contests, and hotdog contests, and chili contests, and probably a few others where people try to eat the most they can of a certain food in a certain amount of time. So, has anyone here ever participated in one of these type contests, or know of anyone who has?

EDIT: I misread the topic since I glanced at it. :lol: But no, I don't know of anyone who has been in one.

No, I haven't! From the ones I've seen and heard of, it looks and sounds gross with everyone trying to stuff all that food in their mouths! :yuck:

I've never been in one and I can't stand to watch most of them. It's kind of gross to see people stuffing themselves, like Rudo said. I still remember the woman who drank so much water that she died in one of those contests, too.

Actually, they say that drinking too much water can kill you (I forget why exactly). There was something like that on the news some time ago. o_o

Scary stuff.

Doesn't it have something to do with your system doesn't have enough salt in ratio(or whatever ya wanna say) with the water, and your cells get to big and sometimes explode?

From Wikipedia...

Quote:Water intoxication (also known as hyperhydration or water poisoning) is a potentially fatal disturbance in brain function that results when the normal balance of electrolytes in the body is pushed outside of safe limits, ironically by that which makes up the majority of it - water.[1] Normal, healthy (both physically and nutritionally) individuals have little to worry about accidentally overconsuming water. Nearly all deaths related to water intoxication in normal individuals have resulted either from water drinking contests, in which individuals attempt to consume more than ten litres over the course of just a few minutes, or long bouts of intensive exercise during which time electrolytes are not properly replenished, yet massive amounts of fluid are still consumed.


I am never good at explaining technical things such as this. :p

Thought I would post this here since it is related to Food eating contests. :)

Ugh, can you believe eating 45 slices of pizza in just 10 minutes???? :o

I don't think I have ever eaten more than 3 slices of pizza at one time. How about you????

I ate about 18 slices of pizza once but that was because I hadn't eaten in about 6 weeks.
