Japanese competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi, the six-time Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest champion, has announced his retirement from the sport due to rising health concerns.

"I’ve decided to retire from competitive eating. It’s all I've done for the last 20 years," Kobayashi, 46, announced in Netflix's "Hack Your Health - The Secrets of Your Gut," a documentary film that explores how food, the digestive system and gut health relates to overall well-being.

Kobayashi said decades of overeating for sport has left him with no appetite or no sensation of fullness, which his wife Maggie James said has caused Kobayashi to go days without eating anything at all.

MORE FIT THAN FAT: Should competitive eaters be considered athletes?

James said her husband feels his body is "broken."

"I hear people say they’re hungry, and they look very happy after they’ve eaten. I’m jealous of those people because I no longer feel hunger," Kobayashi said in the documentary. "I hope to live a long and healthy life."


Takeru Kobayashi: 'I've eaten 10,000 hot dogs' in career-

Kobayashi jumpstarted his career in 2000 during an appearance on the Japanese variety show "TV Champion," where he consumed 16 bowls of ramen in one hour. He set a world record at the 2001 Nathan's Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest, held annually on July 4, by eating 50 hot dogs in 12 minutes. (The previous record at the time was 25⅛ hot dogs). He won the Mustard Yellow Belt six consecutive years from 2001 to 2006.

"I'm sure that I've eaten 10,000 hot dogs since the beginning of my career," Kobayashi said in the film.

bruh 10,000 glizzys is crazy !

keep reading tho sh1t is wild ..


-In order to prepare for competitions, Kobayashi said he would spend months expanding his stomach with food.

"You have to gradually build up your gut by eating larger and larger amounts of food, and then be sure to work it all off so body fat doesn't put a squeeze on the expansion of your stomach in competition. I start my regimen about two months before a big competition," he said in 2004.


Kobayashi's brain affected by competitive eating-


Kobayashi underwent multiple tests during the documentary to diagnose his lack of appetite and reduced sense of smell. Doctors and scientists determined that Kobayashi's chronic overeating has affected his nervous system and that his brain is still trained to think he's competing or eating highly processed foods, despite stepping away from competition.

"I used to crave cakes and curries when I was little. I don't feel that joy about eating anymore," he said. "It’s scary to think that the brain and gut are so closely related. It makes me want to be more careful with what I eat."

Although Kobayashi won't be competing at Coney Island on the Fourth of July anymore, he's not giving up hot dogs completely. Kobayashi said he's on a mission to "create a healthier hot dog" that features traditional Japanese ingredients.

"What’s influenced me more than competitive eating is the hot dog," he said. "I am worried about what my next step will bring, but I am also excited about my future."

Kind of a strange comment from someone who ate in gluttony.
I wonder if scientsts are able to rewire the brain so you don't feel hungry without having to take medicine or get surgery for it.


BTW, I knew someone who got the laproscopic surgury and lost weight. I almost couldn't recognize him because I had always seen him overweight.

Obviously.


Gluttony (Latin: gula) is the overindulgence and overconsumption of anything to the point of waste. The word derives from the Latin gluttire, meaning to gulp down or swallow. One reason for its condemnation is that the gorging of the prosperous may leave the needy hungry.

The human digestive system isn't built to handle excessive overeating. Keep in mind that he competes and trains for most of the year, so it's not just on July 4th that he engages in this disgusting behavior.

I remember him from True Life.

If I remember correctly, he was so good at eating hotdogs because his intestines were slighter lower than where other people’s intestines are.

Agreed, but your gut is your
1st brain. Before you even have a head, you have a gut. Our hearts have brains too
