    Joey Chesnut downed 45 slices in 10 minutes Sunday to win the first Famous Famiglia World Pizza Eating Championship in New York's Times Square.

    He won a contest in Tennessee last month by wolfing down 93 Krystal hamburgers in 8 minutes.

    He also won contests devouring 241 wings in 30 minutes at the Wing Bowl XVI in Philadelphia on February 1, and he ate 78 matzah balls during Kenny & Ziggy's World Matzoh Ball Eating Championship in Houston, Texas on March 2.

    Other world records held by Joey Chestnut:

    59 peanut butter sandwiches in 10 minutes
    18.5 waffles (8 oz.) in 10 minutes
    118 Jalapeño Poppers in 10 minutes
    47 grilled cheese sandwiches in 10 minutes
    8.4 pounds pork rib meat in 12 minutes
    7.05 pounds of wings in 12 minutes

    But he came in second in one of the contests that really matters; beer chugging.

    He is simply amazing...I love me wings but after I eat 20-25 wings at Hooters my stomache hurts and that relays into a visit to the restroom and even in the middle of the night where my stomache cramps up so bad i can't sleep.

    While the amount of food this guy can shove in his face might be amazing, I just can't help but wonder what the heck this does to one's body. How much stomach acid does a body have to produce in a short time period to try and digest that amount of food?

    Some day are we going to see an article about these competitive eaters having massive ulcers? I for one will not feel sorry for them.

    It makes you wonder what kind of training he actually does. What does he eat when he isnt in actual training??
