If you’re one of those people who takes pride in how much and how fast you can eat, you’re about to get slapped back down to Earth by Leah Shutkever from Birmingham.

Instagram model Leah is somehow also a competitive eater and a fitness addict all in one, having made a name for herself previously by eating an entire Domino’s pizza in under one minute and a chocolate orange cake in under 50 seconds.
Here she is eating a whole box of Krispy Kreme donuts in under 60 seconds:
And here she is crushing the Guinness world record for fastest time eating a burrito the other day:
How does Leah do it? Well, she says she ignores all her senses and enters a ‘trance’. She also ‘crushes’ mouthfuls so she can effectively take two bites at once.
If I crush and take one bite, I’m able to swallow and take another bite at the same time.
Eighty per cent of competitive eating is psychological. I breathe deep breaths, I see the finish line, and then I just go.
When I do a food challenge, my brain is mush. I don’t breathe, I can’t smell, I don’t taste. The minute you look, sense or smell you overthink everything.
It just takes that one minute of sheer pressure concentration, nothing else in the head and then it’s over.
Wow, thanks for the tips Leah. But even with that technique, I’m not sure I could crush 3000 calories in under one minute. What I can’t wrap my head around is how you can be one of the best competitive eaters in the UK and still actually be in shape.
The human body works in mysterious ways.
If Leah really wants a challenge though, let’s see how many of these 1000 calorie scotch creme eggs she can wolf down. Diabetes here we come.
