Back in high school we were coming back from a track meet and stopped at McDonald's. They had a deal, 10 cheeseburgers for $5. My buddy got 20 and ate every single one. Made me want to puke.

Don't think I could eat all that was pictured. The starch/carbs/grease in the fries (grease) and buns (carbs) would do me in. Would also have to have Diet Coke. I'm one of the weird ones that likes the taste of diet pop more than regular.

Having worked my college years at McDonalds....I’d guess 60% of the people who ordered the Double Quarter Pounder meal got a Diet Coke

How far could you get? I’ll add that you cannot puke during or within 2 hours afterwards.

Holy Holy Moly!  And you guys could eat all that......easily?

10 or more years ago..probably. Now, hell no. 

Growing up I used to crush 20 piece nuggets and fries. Now, I just don't eat that much food. 

The Coke's are the problem as that is a ton of pop.

Never. I've not been one to ever eat tons of food in one sitting. Part of the reason why I rarely go to any buffet, I just can't get the money's worth at them.

Fixed your image.

And yes, I could kill that in 90 minutes for sure.

Ok, after sleeping on it and re-evaluating the image, I think it would be tough to complete. I could've done it on any given day in high school or college, no problem.

Now, I could probably do it on a day after a big workout. 90 minutes is a long time, that would give me time to catch a second wind.

When I was in HS or college, I could probably pound that. Nowadays, I'd rather get COVID than McDs. Shit's the nastiest fast food; makes Taco Bell seem like actual fine dining.

I've still got a sliver of youth, it's either now or never.

If you decide to do this, watch Joey Chestnut destroy 32 Big Macs first as inspiration.

Those doubles don't look right.  The patties look like they have a larger diameter than normal, and then put them on a quarter-pounder bun.   Does McD's have different size buns for regular hamburgers and QP's?

So basically 1 pound of meat, say 1/2 pound in buns.  2.5 lbs of french fries, 5 lbs of liquid - that's 9 lbs of mass down your gullet, not including the nuggets (no idea how much they weigh).   The buns and the fries are a problem in that they take up a lot of room.  The meat is dense, that's gonna just sit there.

To me, the Coke will help stretch your stomach during the meal, plus you're probably peeing half of it away in the middle of the meal.  At 61, I might be able to do it and not drop dead, but I'd be miserable for the next 72 hours.  At 30, I could have done it and only been miserable for the rest of the day.

Meat sweats

I can't imagine how that dude's  body survives these contests.  Watching him sweat like that is disgusting.  It's awesome too.

The regular hamburger buns are smaller than the 1/4 pounder ....quarter pounder burgers almost triple amount of burger than hamburger. Those are made with burgers hanging out like commercials to make look bigger but a big sand which nonetheless
