A food competition is not for faint-hearted people. The right mindset is essential for working through the piles on the plate.
A steakhouse waiter in Philadelphia set up a challenge to eat an entire rotisserie chicken for 40 straight days. Alexander Tominksy stepped up to the challenge and completed it successfully with hundreds of people cheering him on at an abandoned pier near the Delaware River.
The 31-year-old had a virtual audience rooting for his victory when he shared updates to millions through his Twitter account.
In his eyes, eating the portion size for two-to-eight people singlehandedly “seemed like the right thing to do.”
Too much of anything is just slow poison. Tominksy struggled to clear his plate day after day with the same item but he wasn’t a quitter. “I mean, nothing’s a challenge without a little bit of pain and without a little bit of pain, it’s hard to understand what it feels like to feel good,” Tominksy said.
Tominsky, who has lived in Philadelphia for eight years, added: “I have had so much sodium and have felt really dizzy at times and my stomach is just bloated.”
He’s still a winner even if he faints to the ground.
