Watching People Overeat Is Actually Sort of Disgusting
The more we read about hot-dog-eating contests and Wall Street traders who spend their off-hours stuffing themselves with raw oysters and Munchkins, the more we're convinced that the most direct path to weight loss can be found in watching people cram huge quantities of food down their throats. The latest evidence is the above video, which shows a determined young man consuming an entire jar of Nutella in less than four minutes. Watching him stick spoonful after heaping spoonful into his mouth as he struggles not to regurgitate it has done what no thin-lipped dietitian could ever hope to: It has almost completely eradicated, Clockwork Orange-style, any desire we once possessed for the creamy hazelnut spread. Thanks, man!
