I am attempting to enter my first contest.

The 4th Annual Pastrami Joe’s Rueben Eating Championship, in Marshall, MI. I will basically have to eat as many 1lb Reuben sandwiches as possible in 8 minutes.  The winner of professional’s contest last year ate 5.7 sandwiches, which clearly makes him an amateur.  Couldn’t finish that last .3 of a Reuben sandwich?  I am coming for victory.

Until then, the plan goes as follows..

First I will take out the Bomber breakfast, which has haunted me for the last few months.  It called me last night and accused me of ducking it.  I am in no way trying to duck this breakfast, and I will destroy it in a few short days.  Just you wait.
From there, in no particular order..

  • The Bomb Burger at Burdick’s in Kalamazoo.  This burger has a pound of ground steak stopped with extra pickles, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo and Mustard served with one pound of fries, a side of coleslaw, and a pickle.  If I can finish that, I get a free t-shirt.
  • Pizza Eating Contest at the Manchester Fair.  Not until July, still trying to find more information.
  • Definitely going to make the trip to Tony’s I-75 in Birch Run to tear through some food.

There aren’t many things within reasonable driving distance so I’m still working on all of this.


My darling girlfriend and I were eating over at Aubrey’s and she proposed a fantastic idea.   An eating competition in Ypsilanti.  Here are the current plans/ideas for the competition:

  1. It will be called the Glutten Bowl and will be hosted somewhere in Ypsilanti.
  2. Any profits will be donated to a charity.  The charity has not yet been chosen, but we are currently leaning towards Relay for Life.
  3. Participants will pay a small entree fee which will pay for the food and for the donation towards charity.
  4. The winner of the competition will win a combination of a cash prize, gift cards to local businesses and a trophy.
  5. There will be several raffles during the competition for people to win gift cards to local businesses.
  6. There will be an after party at a local watering hole.
  7. The food choice is up in the air.  We are still trying to decide.

The plans are still unconfirmed because we just started working on the idea.  The whole point of this is to offer entertainment and to donate some money to charity.  Ideally we could like to donate a few hundred dollars to the organization we decide.

Let me know if you have any ideas, suggestions, or a will to compete.  I will keep you updated as we plan.

I began to research for my quest to become competitive eating champion of the world and found some interesting information.

I found myself on a gastric bypass forum where a young lady was requesting information on stretching her stomach a little bit after having the surgery. Readers suggested she began drinking large amounts of water in short amounts of time. I thought this would be a good place to start.

I attempted to chug a gallon of water in less than two minutes. I video taped the event but failed miserably so I am hesitant to post it on this blog. Honestly, I am embarrassed. I understand that this will be a slow process, but I have high expectations. Maybe when I am able to complete this task I will post the trials.

Until the, let training continue!

While eating dinner last night, I had an epiphany.  I do not know what exactly an epiphany is, but I believe it means I had a vision…  No, that doesn’t really work either.  I guess what I’m trying to say is that I had a great idea last night.

I, John Moors, am going to begin training for competitive eating.

I don’t really have a plan for anything yet, and haven’t even been able to any competitive eating events around this area.  If it comes down to me just eating huge amounts of food and competing against someone in another booth who is unaware of my presence, than so be it.  I will begin training with goal of entering small competitions and gauging my abilities.  From where, who knows?

I will keep you updated.
