If you are really, I mean really hungry, the best option is a pizza buffet.

Compared to the rest of the items, the 12-egg omelet isn`t all that big. Eggs cook up small, and I`ve eaten 12+ in one sitting several times.

Nice coincidence - I was just reading a few minutes ago that quality is everything when it comes to eating massive quantities without feeling sick, both for eggs and beef. In Tuscany, there`s a dish that is 5-6 pounds of steak, 6 inches thick, crusted with all sorts of herbs, and if you have a great butcher purportedly it`s not painful to eat the whole thing in one sitting. As for eggs, I once had a job in which one of the supervisors lived out in the country and had some chickens. He`d bring in fresh eggs to us, and they were NOTHING like what I could buy in the supermarket. I mean, good food tastes SO different from what`s considered normal food these days that it really stretches the imagination to name them the same things. The range of quality is that wide.

On a different subject, I really enjoy articles about "the world`s biggest (name food product here)" so if anyone finds them I`d enjoy seeing them on IAB.

Were you impressed...really? Now what about this one: (its the 123 pounds burger they talked about)

Compare the size of dude`s mouth with, say, just the meat part.... Now consider the whole burger`s size

There’s a place in Phoenix, AZ called the Heart Attack Grill. It’s not really like a 30-lb burger or anything, but the novelty is something. This is their ENTIRE menu:

Single, Double, Triple, or Quadruple Bypass Burger (1/2 lb each)
Steak fries fried in Lard
Coke or Sprite
Marlboro Reds or Camel Dead Heads

That’s it. If you eat a Quadruple they’ll wheel you out to your car in a wheelchair.

I almost forgot the best part. The waitresses are all dressed in Naughty Nurse outfits. There’s mirrors all over the place and picture taking is encouraged.

Ain’t America great?

and you wonder why people are so fat. all that food, and people are starving in other countries. There is no reason to eat all that, but do it, have a heart attack, and decrease this surplus population. gluttons ..

Yeah, that`s one reason for people being overweight in this country.. The other is an increasingly sedentary lifestyle.. Even with the best diet a sedentary lifestyle will lead to being overweight.. It`s not something I`d expect to change soon though as things become more automated, and "convenient"..
