NH’s Matt ‘Megatoad’ Stonie Eats 125 Cupcakes in Less Than 9 Minutes
Matt "Megatoad" Stonie, who Seacoastonline.com said spent many summers at his Grandparents' summer home on Hampton Beach and won his first eating competition on Hampton Beach in 2010, just completed another epic eating challenge.
"Megatoad" ate 125 cupcakes in just under 9 minutes.
My question throughout this entire video..... HOW does he do that? He's a skinny guy. I don't get it. Does he not eat for days before a competition or something? I have questions!! Before you watch the video, there is an S word at the end, so now you've been warned.
The stomach can stretch to unbelievable sizes and competitive eaters push through the urge to stop eating. I have had that urge to stop and when I ignore it, usually at Thanksgiving or Christmas or..... say... Tuesday, I get physically sick and vow never to do it again.
Plus, I imagine there are consequences to your body besides just the stomach stretching. It can't be good for your heart, kidneys, liver.... you name it, it's gotta do a number on your system.
If you're thinking of competing in one of these eating competitions, I would recommend having someone else there who knows how to do the Heimlich maneuver. Or, better yet, just don't. Save that for the professionals like Megatoad.
