What would I have to do to be able to eat 5lbs of burger in 20 mins?

Asked by MrGV (4170points) February 20th, 2010

I have 1 month to get ready to attempt the 5lb burger at Mugshots.
Are there any competitive eaters here? If so any good pointers?

And you would want to do this…why?

Eat the meat first and then finish with the bun and the toppings.

Eating the bun with the burger or eating it first will only fill you up faster.

@Rarebear Just for the hell of it.

@Blondesjon haha I learned that in Man Vs Food

@MrGeneVan Okay, well good luck with that. I eat like a bird, so I can’t help you. I was just wondering.

mugshots is so good! i had a friend who did this, apparently they don’t disqualify you if you throw up

Drag it out, if you can. Try overeating a lot beforehand in case you can get your stomach to stretch.
“Beforehand” here means “as practice XD

@JONESGH haha I would prefer not to throw up lol
@Nullo Yeah I was going to drink a crap load of water to expand my stomach lol

That’s a pound every four minutes! I hope you have a big mouth, lol, and an even bigger stomach. Here’s an interesting read, complete with Monty Python video reference. Watch out for that “profound gastroparesis”.

Fact from fiction, truth from diction. Live in Sub Saharan Africa for 3 years or more, you will be starving so much you would eat literally anything eatable.

@Hypocrisy_Central There is actually quite a bit of food available in Sub-Saharan Africa to those that have money. If you can afford to get there from the states, you most likely are not the type that will starve there. Self-induced starvation could happen anywhere. But that aside, gouging on food after a major fast would stun your body. It would be extremely unhealthy – beyond food-eating contest unhealthy – and even dangerous.

@Hypocrisy_Central That saying has been said.

“Chew outside of your mouth” AKA: tear up food as you eat it, can almost double your speed if you are good enough.

Are you trying to hurt yourself? Why would you do this to your body?

TheLoneMonk's avatar

Soak the bun in water after eating the meat. Soaking it breaks it down and is much easier to swallow.

Be hungry?

ChaosCross's avatar

Anorexically regurgitate on your burger to assist digestion.

@ChaosCross . . . That is absolutely vile. I love it!
