    This part of the article is disturbing:

    “The authors of the study expressed concern that competitive eaters can’t have their cake and eat it too: “We speculate that professional speed eaters eventually may develop morbid obesity, profound gastroparesis, intractable nausea and vomiting, and even the need for a gastrectomy. Despite its growing popularity, competitive speed eating is a potentially self-destructive form of behavior.””

    Matt Stonie is aware of it and could care less
