Matt Stonie has turned his love for food into a full-time career and become one of the top-ranked competitive eaters in the world. So how did Stonie go from a skinny college kid to a professional eater? His journey to competitive eating success might surprise you.
When you eat 20 pounds of food in one go, it can take quite a toll on the body, so Stonie works hard to stay in shape. Weighing in at a slender 120 pounds is no easy feat, especially when your job requires you to eat so many calories. Stonie told GQ that he makes sure to take care of himself so that, in spite of how much food he eats, he’s still staying healthy. He explained,
“It really just comes down to diet and watching what you’re eating after a contest. But I’m definitely in the gym five times a week doing cardio or weights. I’ve made this my full-time job, and I spend a lot of time taking care of myself. It’s hard, it’s not like we have superhuman metabolisms.”
