She's done it again!

Sonya Thomas, that delectable Super-sized eater has claimed not one, but two, first prizes over the past Labor Day weekend, eating 162 chicken wings in 12 minutes and 42 hamburgers in 8 minutes! Have a look at this video of the last 3 minutes in Buffalo to witness the excitement of the end of the contest. Her secret? I will let her speak for herself:
"HEALTH, DIET, AND EXERCISE: Quite often I am asked about how I prepare for contests. Though I have been known to consume rather massive quantities of food on days during eating events, my day-to-day diet consists of healthy foods. I eat lots of fruits and veggies, and an ample amount of protein (fish and eggs mainly). And I do aerobic exercise up to 2 hours a day, 5 days per week.

Sure, I enjoy eating high calorie deserts and snacks on occasion, but when I do I counter them with at least an equal amount of exercise and calorie-burning activities. I'm also very active on my job, 10-12 hours a day, 5 days per week, which helps keep my metabolism "revved up."

Remember, these contests and exhibitions occur only once or twice per month. They're the exception ... not the rule! Competitive eating is a sport ... NOT a lifestyle. I could not be a top contender in this sport for very long if I didn't take care of my body--both physically and physiologically. I plan to continue in that vein. That's why you'll hear more about "The Black Widow's" feats in the months and years to come, God willing"
Two hours of exercise five times a day! No wonder I can't have more than half a serving for seconds each time, despite the fact that I get served some of the best food any man can crave for most days! To read the rest of her story go here.
