Matt Stonie Reveals What It’s like To Eat For a Living | GQ

  • Published on Jan 31, 2016
  • Most people eat for fun. The Nathan’s Hot Dog champ eats as a form of employment.

    Professional eater (ten pounds of pasta in eight minutes), Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest champ (62 in ten minutes)

    “On a normal day, I eat 2,000 to 2,500 calories. But when I'm practicing for a competition, I can go up to 10,000 calories, no problem. Some days I go above 20,000. Hot dogs are really up there. I did a pumpkin-pie contest once that was like 22,000 calories. Then I have to work it off. If I eat 15 pounds of food, then the next day I'll actually be up 20 because of the water retention. Then the next day I'm down like ten to 13 pounds. The next day I'm down another five pounds. Then I'm back to normal.”
