Bite the Bullet video game clip

Lord Shmup posted a clip from the upcoming video game “Bite the Bullet” of Miki Sudo’s characters. Other competitive eaters appearing in the game include Bob Shoudt, Crazy Legs Conti, Jesse Pynnönen, LA Beast and Matt Stonie. update TechRaptor.net has a review of the game with the following description:

The setup is thus: you are a mercenary working for the not-at-all-sinister DarwinCorp, which wants to catalog all the creatures on a now-ruined Earth. Unfortunately, said planet is now infested by a plague of rabid ghouls. Thankfully, you’re equipped with modified biology that allows you to eat literally anything you want, including the stunned, still-alive bodies of your enemies. All this translates to a run-and-gun side-scrolling shooter in which consuming everything in sight is the order of the day. Will Bite the Bullet take its place on the a la carte menu, or is it a recipe for disaster?

University study on occasional oversize meals

A study by the University of Bath reports that occasional oversized meals do not have an immediate negative health impact on healthy males between the ages of 22 and 37.

Those who volunteered for the trial consumed almost twice as much pizza when pushing beyond their usual limits, doubling their calorie intake.

But the study found the amount of nutrients in their bloodstream kept within normal range.

Researchers say this shows that if an otherwise healthy person overindulges occasionally there are no immediate negative consequences in terms of losing metabolic control.
