I would imagine giant fat rolls don't give the stomach room to expand.

(checks article)

Yep.
 
2012-05-24 09:34:36 AM  
... but then how do fat people who lack the gene that tells them when they're hungry manage it? If fat people have less room in their stomachs you'd think they'd encounter that natural barrier.

Yup. And being obese doesn't make your stomach and intestines any larger. For the duration of the competition, you have the same amount of volume to stuff food into.

Plus, the fat ones have been snacking on hot dogs all morning. And potato chips. And Snickers Bars. And Ribs. And Ice Cream.

I assumed that was why they switched the format of the show to where the viewers eat instead of him. Man vs. Food Nation, they are calling it. And I think he got another show too where he talks about the food instead of inhaling it.

Having a massive binge once every couple weeks is no big deal, especially if you work on staying healthy outside of the competition.

Most of it probably gets forced through the digestive tract and pooped right out anyway. No way they fully digest and absorb all of that.

Bingo.

Taco bell doesn't ravage the bowels of someone fat who eats garbage all the time. Its just more garbage onto the pile.

Eat clean food for 2 weeks, stay fit, then see what 2 taco bell burritos do to you.

When I was a server I waited on an overweight woman once who told me that she had gastric bypass surgery and couldn't eat very much, and wanted to order off the kids menu. I said fine, and she ordered the kids chicken strips and fries with a side of gravy. After I served her, she sent me back five more times for more sides of gravy -- they were served in 3 oz dishes all scraped clean, so it came to 18 oz, or over a pint

Where there's a will, there's a way.

Taco bell is a bad example. I am by no means a fark beauty man, but I avoid Tbell and TacoJs for a reason. There is some garbage that no human can consume.

I just figured they puked it up afterwards. Who would want to digest 30some hotdogs. The sodium alone would probably kill you.

It like DRAINO. I had our eat fit month in February. 4 Weeks of Berries, Veggies (mostly raw) and very small amounts of unseasoned fish and poultry combined with crazy amounts of fibre and nothing to drink for a month but orange juice and water.

I celebrated on March 2nd with 3 tacos and a coke from taco bell. 140 minutes later my guts cunvulsed and I used a whole roll of charmin.

They purge after the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. I'm not sure about after other contests.

Ye gods. Eating at Taco Bell is for sadly contemplating what has gone wrong with your life thus far, not celebrating. If you aren't crying as you hand them your money, you're doing it wrong.

A little bit over 2 hours is actually a sign that it worked. I try to avoid taco hell unless I really feel like I want to poop in about an hour or so.

That seems wrong, somehow. (I realize I'm talking about a fairly disgusting "sport" to begin with.) They should have a separate division for the number of hot dogs eaten and kept down.

The marathon to the existing 100m dash, if you will.

I have a six pack and am pretty lean. I eat healthy but I can destroy a box of pizza or a bucket of fried chicken in a few minutes. Next time some fatass calls me out at work or something I should show them this article.

I have had people ask me in public how I eat so much and remain so thin. I'm always like , 'lolwut?' .

See all the fat lining the internal organs? This is called visceral fat.

Obese people ironically really do have less room.

I'm not obese but I do eat a ton at most meals. Most of it is green vegetables. Yum.

Mcdonalds is a bad example. I can eat the greasiest roach coach Mexican food all day and I'm fine. I eat 2 value menu Mcdoubles and I'm in the bathroom 6 times in a 2 hour span. EVERYONE I know is in the same boat. It's become a running joke at work that someone in the bathroom all the time must've eaten at Mcdonalds.

It's no coincidence that Taco bells are most common in parts of town where most of the heroin is sold. You need some opiates in the blood to keep that stuff in your ass for fifteen minutes.
