'Gal Sone' discloses secret of speed-eating

27 Comments

Voracious speed eater Gal Sone, 22, will publish her autobiography on May 29, disclosing the secret of her speed-eating success. In the book, she says a medical examination showed that her cells burn off fat much more actively than ordinary people and that she had more bifidobacteria in the gut (which helps digest food).

In addition, Sone says she goes to the toilet six times a day without absorbing what she eats. She also writes that she has been unattached for two years because her ex-boyfriend ate her cheese bread without telling her.

I saw her on the telly once but she wasn't speed eating so much as just eating. And eating. And eating. I think she ate all the items on the menu at a raamen shop or something. But not speedily. Is she a speed eater or just a big eater?

I'm thinking about buying the book for Golden Week reading. Perfect to browse while killing time in the smallest room.

OK thanks. I got "One Slag" but the comment to Sarge that he was "close" threw me.

"Chicks talking about how they take a dump 6 times a day are so hot"

At least you know they're not full of it.

Ossan > "Gal Sone" rearranged is "One Slag"

Check British colloquial terms.

She should be in a freak show.

She is. It's called Japanese variety television.

Touche sir! Well played!

Sarge is close. I can't spell it out or my TV career will be over before it even started. Anyone else ? Once you take the first word out (One) you cannot use it again when spelling the second word in reverse.

North - "Gals" and "Slag"?

OK I'll let you all in to a big, big TV secret. The name 'Gal Sone' is a hidden name. If you take the last three letters out (One) you get the first word. The second word is spelt in reverse. That's all I'm telling.

Yes, in the US (and other countries) there are speed eating contests going back decades BUT do you know the names (and excretion schedule) of these people? Do they have agents and write books? Are they on the freaking TV day after day? This waste-of-oxygen is literally famous here, that is point.

We have tons of people like this in America. These "speed eaters" who compete. What was the national news the other day? Worldwide food crisis? I'm so confused. Why can't we teleport these people to starving nations and make them stop!

It's actually 'P-A-R-T-Y', and I believe these letters are edibile. This means that Gal will ultimately be a 'party pooper', probably in about 4 hours time.

Apparently you can set your watch by her. I hear she has better movement than most Swiss timepieces.

Umm...That's it. I'm played out.

Has anyone else noticed that the word 'Fart' has been spelt out in the promotional picture of Sone above ? Or does it say 'Tart' ?

Considering all the TV ads for it, hemmoroids seems to be quite a problem here, even discussed by HS girls on swings. Some may remember the ad with the challenge, "would you ride that bicycle?"...from the US.

I unfortunately remember on some tv interview she talked about how she often used to get hemmoroids from using the toilet so much.She also wears dresses that make her look much skinnier than she is.

If only I could have read this article without absorbing it.

I find all the Gluttony competitions sickening and will switch channel when they come on. Nothing wrong with a good food program though.

But when I see the guys chowing down on Hot Dogs at Nathans, munching on pies, etc my stomach starts turning. Not sure why there are still so many competitions like that out there worldwide.

she goes to the toilet six times a day without absorbing what she eats.

I noticed that after stuffing her face, she often asks for ice cream; I suspected she had some sort of lactose intolerance making her eliminate everything she eats.

Her "talent" made her famous, but I don't think its pleasant doing what she is doing.

Another thing that I don't like about Japan. Years ago, certain TV stations had these gluttony competitions until some junior high-school student tried to copy what he saw on TV and died as a result. The TV programs and the whole popular culture of gluttony went into recess as a result. However, it seems that such low-brow "entertainment" is making a come back.

As "Scrote" and others point out, in a world of inequality (starvation) and rising food prices, is this really "culture" that we should be rejoicing in or even praising? Furthermore, considering the fact that the vast majority of caloric intake in Japan is imported (and thus expensive) in relative terms, is it in the best interests of this society to promote a culture that praises gluttony? I think not.

Finally, does going to the toilet 6 times a day equate to a finger down the throat? Get a life...

Given the number of hungry people in the world, why publicise someone who makes a living from stuffing her face? She should be in a freak show.

She is disgusting. Gluttoney is a talent? Why eat good-tasting food if you scarf it down in minutes. Her success is a testament to the fact that a large segment of people here are so braindead that they find her antics "entertaining". Can't even mention the thought of all the people suffering with rising food prices and shortages and this outlandish behaviour is not only condoned but cheered. Just a matter of time until a youngster imitating her gets ill and then she'll fade away.

6 times a day?! I wish I had her problem. I pray that someday this affiction she has goes away and she is able to store every ounce of food she eats. It's only fair. :-)

does anyone think she looks healthy??? just what we need, a guidebook for kids on how to stuff yourself. most people can`t do what she does but the naive will try. to sad.

"She's very pretty and obviously talented! Good for her!" ;)

I'd be upset too if my SO went sneaking around behind my back eating my cheese bread. Where's the trust?
