Competitive eating career

Eric Booker Eric Booker Wikipedia

Booker trains for competitions by trying to stretch his stomach and develop jaw strength. He eats large amounts of fruit and vegetables and drinks a gallon of water in a sitting in order to stretch his stomach, and chews over twenty pieces of gum at a time to build jaw strength. He maintains that competitive eating is a healthy sport, and has lost weight since he began competing. He is presently ranked 10th by the IFOCE.
