A Huffington Post blog entry asks the question, "Are Competitive Speed Eaters Like Pythons?"

    I dunno about other competitive eaters, but typically get pretty dam full at contests….

    I hope to make some sort of study on CE someday from a registered dietitian’s standpoint.

    These articles are often written by people who have little understanding of CE. At the end the author asks why eaters don’t turn their competitive drive toward physical exercise… well, then, they wouldn’t be competitive eaters anymore, would they? There’s something about food and eating that gathers us all here.

    They definitely have a unique talent, and the thing that gets me is that there’s about a 20-minute time lag before the realizes how much you eat. Once I get full, if I keep eating, I feel absolutely awful—-total discomfort.

    The fact that any competitive eater can even make it to the stage to receive a trophy after eating enough for 4, 5, 6, 10+ people is beyond me, let alone smile or talk.

    Sonya REALLY freaks me out. (I mean that in no way negative.) How she’s able to ride on Badlands’ shoulders (and still laugh and smile) after eating so many dogs and wings is a complete mystery.

    Where does this stuff go?!!! In her legs?

    I feel so bad afterwards I have to go into a food coma. Like, literally have to pass out for a few hours or risk feeling like absolute crap. I’m also full for at least 12 hours before I can even think about eating anything else.
