    Doe's Eat Place in my hometown serves huge thick steaks. I could never eat that much. 8 oz is plenty for me.

    The largest I've ever eaten was a 16oz T-Bone labeled 'The Cowgirl' at some Texas steakhouse we visited. That was enough for me.....

    Maybe ...but still weirdly impressive, doesnt look like her gut could even hold 72 ounces

    A lot of competitive eaters have that kind of physique. The explanation I heard is that the less fat you have around your middle, the more your stomach can expand. Makes sense...look at Joey Chestnut, the current reigning champion. Doesn't look like he could eat 74 hot dogs and buns, does he?

    I’ll do 16oz, 2 - 8oz steaks. But if I do that’s all I eat. No sides. Just stake goodness.

    Had a 32 oz med-rare prime rib. First a couple pints ale, salad, rolls, glass of cabernet...and a slice of cheesecake. ONCE.

    A comic -- I forget her name -- has a routine about this...Her buddies are amazed she has no interest in the 48oz steak challenge, but her point is she wonders and worries about her *sshole. You eat a steak like that...you need some kind of exit strategy.

    Way back in the day (1973) in college, we talked a couple guys into a food eating contest at the college cafeteria. Nate, a dude freshly off the farm won- he ate three full dinners and 24 desserts.

    After watching that it looks like the key is to swallow chunks without much chewing.

    If, hypothetically, the prize was money I could probably do it. But sitting at a table by myself, being cheered on, and getting my photo put on a board- I don't want to be that guy.

    I don't eat at restaurants very often. But when I do I go there to eat some food. It might be my only meal that day. If they have steak I will get the biggest one they have and will get it cooked rare, unless the biggest one is like what this thread is about. Then I will have the second biggest steak.

    In New Orleans a restaurant called Bamboula's has a sixteen inch fried oyster po boy. I got it because it was the meal that had the largest amount of fried oysters. I ordered it plain- just oysters and bread. I ate all of the oysters. I only had a couple bites of the bread.
