    biggest thing you've eaten

    i love watermelon and i read that watermelon will relieve water retention. since yesterdays epic ride i gained 3 kg (6.6 lbs) of water so i was delighted to get a watermelon.

    the problem is once i started i couldnt stop. i've eaten the entire thing, the size of a basketball. i have a proud sense of acievement but my belly hurts now.

    can you beat that?

    Coasting, someday I hope to go out drinking with you. I think you'd be a fun chap to get smashed with.

    I used to backpack.

    You burn several thousand calories a day, but you can only carry about 4.

    One time in the 80's I went to an all-you-can-eat restaurant with some coworkers
    just after a trip ended.
    I ate 3 dinners. Then I took a dinner plate, put on 4 small pieces of chocolate cake,
    over a pint of chocolate soft serve, chocolate syrup, jimmies and nuts.

    I got a standing ovation from the entire restaurant.

    While perhaps not a single item of food, I once at an "all you can eat" bucket of peel and eat shrimp which was well over a pound (I had a few refills), followed by snails and followed by a 32 ounce porterhouse steak. Was drinking at the time so I don't remember if there were sides consumed. Desert? Maybe...don't remember...

    That was when I was on my way to being as fat as I had ever been. It was at a good steak house, and I was on an expense account

    I ate an oyster that was bigger than my foot. Seriously, I could use the shell as a snowshoe.

    The A&W in Atascadero, CA used to sell a quart-sized root beer float, that was pretty big.

    But when I was a teen, I thought nothing of eating a half-dozen donuts in one sitting.

    I once ate a Farrell's trough, with 32 scoops of ice cream. They gave me a certificate for it. That was a long time ago.

    biggest single item would probably be a whole pizza /w toppings.

    when I was in my late teens I worked in an after-hours club, and I was a skinny thing (6'2", 135-140 lbs!) with a jackrabbit metabolism. one of the doormen was my roomate (he was 6'8", 'bout 280 lbs), and we used to have **epic** post-work meals. usually we would go to Gino's and get two hoagies for me and four cheeseburgers for him and we'd eat them on the way home.

    one night, though, we decided to go to the all-night Melrose Diner. we both ordered omelettes, toast, hash browns, a bagel with cream cheese and tomato, OJ, and coffee. the waitress came with the check and we told her "hold on to that, we're going to do the whole thing again." she gave the ticket to the cooks and watched us like a hawk, thinking we were going to be jerks and beat the check, but we in fact ate the whole thing again! and tipped her grandly, of course.

    When I was on the varsity team, I'd eat one and a half pizzas (and then the remaining half for breakfast) after the worst workout of the week where we'd do ground training AND sprinting laps.

    I still do eat a lot. It all goes to my chubby cheeks.

    OK, when eight months pregnant with my son, I entered a sushi-eating contest. Eight contestants, I was in second place with 60 pieces of sushi. The winner was a guy 6'8' and 300 lbs. I could have eaten more fish (think baby beluga whale) but they really amped up the wasabi towards the end. I was barely able to waddle across the parking lot for a consolation pint of Haagen Dazs.

    It's not the best thing I have eaten, but the hotel I was staying at served all you can eat breakfast and it cost a lot if one only ate a complete meal you will normally eat in the morning.

    Needless to say I ate 3 complete meal's worth of breakfast, which was probably around 2000 calories.
    and you know what the kicker is? I still felt hungry at lunch.


    AEO has been known to eat full 12" pizzas, crust and all, as well as clean off the plates that friends couldn't finish at sushi restaurants.

    I think I ate at least 3 full plates of sushi once, when, for some reason, everyone else left over a lot of sushi.
    and it was darn tasty.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I occasionally go into bottomless-pit mode - I've actually had my friends shout at me to stop eating because the amount I consumed made them feel ill.

    The most ridiculous meal I've eaten recently was a Sunday buffet at the Westin hotel here. Free-flow Champagne, a spread of food over two floors and at the foie gras station they asked me how many I wanted. Plus an open bar. Plus a chamber orchestra, a tenor and soprano, and acrobats. Most people need to be rolled out. The only thing it lacked was a peasant revolt outside with torches and pitchforks.

    Go to the Shangri-La for breakfast. I could hardly roll myself out of the hotel and just wanted to go back to my room.

    The Shangri-La is far too tasteful. No acrobats! No chamber orchestra!

    Dude, that is wuss size. I have eaten that much just coming out of the jungle as a warm up. That is merely hydration. I think Late has you beat.

    I don't know how much I ate but I remembering getting tired of chewing... When I was 14 I took a job with my cousin throwing bales of hay. Nothing I could do to not lose weight. I went down three notches in my belt in two weeks - which has to be at least 15 to 20 lbs. We started everyday at 5 am and finished at 10 pm. The bales ranged between 50 lbs for straw to well over 100 for alfalfa. I do remember getting quart ice cream shakes every time we dropped off a load. We must have had 3 or 4 a day of those things. Now I just look at one and I will gain a pound.

    If you ever wish to change how you look in 2 weeks, throw bales. You will look totally different, if you survive. (well, if you are dead you look totally different too)

    After a winter's day electro fishing on the Missouri River, my two cohorts and I each had an order of every fried appetizer the place had, a fried chicken dinner, two NY strip steak dinners and a pitcher of beer each. The cook came out to meet us.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    i bet he would have slapped you on the back if he didn't think you would have puked it all up.

    apparently watermelon rind is good for smooth skin. I'll rub my face next time.
