HK Standard: Sonya eats almost 10 kg (22 lb.) of food each day

The Hong Kong standard has an article about Sonya Thomas’ victory at the Whampoa Asia eating contest. In that article, Sonya is quoted as saying she eats almost 10 kg (22 lb.) of food each day. If that is accurate, then Sonya eats her bodyweight every five days. Sonya’s big Burger King meal weighs a good deal less than 22 pounds, so it would be interesting to learn what else she eats to reach that amount.

    I believe that would only be accurate if you count the weight of liquids, which weigh about a pound per pint, or 8 lbs per gallon. Sonya has stated before that she drinks lots of diet coke and such.

    Well they say its between 1-1.5 gallons of diet coke, which is 8.33 lbs/12.5lb. Then a larg serving of fries from a fast food place is around a pound a piece. Then I’m guessing the burger and nuggets would make for a little under 2 lbs., I’m not sure. So that’d total to around 17.5 lbs if she does the 1.5 gallons.
