    “If I eat 5lbs or 10lbs of something, I’ll be fine – I’ll even go for a meal afterwards. But if I eat 25lbs of something, my body’s going to kick it out”

    Is she admitting to something here? Personally, if an eater can keep it down for the duration of the time that they’re at an event, I think its fair game. But talking about this is usually pretty taboo.

    Datguy do you realllllllllly think, I mean really think hard about this, that the top eaters are digesting anything that they competitively eat? 5lbs, 10lbs, 20lbs etc? Get the paycheck, and get it out is the motto. And for good reason.

    3:27 Anon, I have never believed that they digested, but to my knowledge this is the first time a top-level eater has ever admitted it.

    It might not mean she pukes it. When the body is hit with extreme amounts of food, 10+ pounds etc, the stomach will often convert it immediately to diarrhea to purge it.

    In an interview several years ago, Jamie McDonald talked about puking.

    Tim Janus recently said

    “Every competitive eater pukes after almost every contest, and any eater who tells you otherwise is either lying or sucks at eating. (I did it, I witnessed it, and it was something we often talked about together.) ”

    Ed Jarvis told the reporter to stand directly in front of the ladies room and take pic or video as soon as she exited

    Sonya said the cheesecake contest was the only one which made her sick. She was clear about that.

    Here was the link OJ uploaded from Animal planet where sonya competed against Booker at the title rally in 2004. I think Sonya was sick before she competed . She was not very happy going into the contest and i believe prior to the contest George gave her $40 for cabfare. I think she was looking for more than that but anyhow that might have been the only time Sonya did actually throw up her food with the exception of Arties thanksgiving contest where she nearly choked

    The Animal Planet clip shows just how much eaters have improved since then, 11 pounds of cheesecake in 9 minutes, Molly Schuyler just uploaded a video eating 20 pounds in less than 7 minutes

    the sponsor who ran the contest was very nice but cheesecake was horrible. I tried a slice did not taste like real cheesecake . If it was Juniors , Sonya might have eaten more than 11lbs and not get sick. Speaking of Juniors they want $42 for a regular size cake Ridiculous
