Man falls into 10-hour food coma after eating 24 cottage pies for food challenge

Man falls into 10-hour food coma after eating 24 cottage pies for food challenge

Joel Hansen recently ate an entire pig and couldn't eat for two days afterwards

A former fitness model who recently devoured an entire pig in a food challenge has put his stomach to the test once more, and landed himself in a 10 hour food coma because of it.

Joel Hansen was recently in Thailand where he ate a whole pig, an experience which rendered him unable to eat anything else for another two days, but that hasn't put him off another goal of gargantuan gastronomic gluttony.

This time he's come to the UK and headed for Cattlemans Steakhouse in Devon, a place which has developed quite the reputation for food challenges.

A bloke who couldn't quite polish off his last few onion rings recently failed a £100 food challenge, while another famous diner failed because he didn't eat the salad that came with his feast.

Cattlemans has some pretty clear rules about their food challenges, but Joel decided to try and up his own difficulty level on their cottage pie challenge.

The steakhouse normally challenges diners to scoff the equivalent of a dozen cottage pies in one hour, but Joel went and asked them to double that to 24 pies.

All in all, he had to chomp his way through two trays each filled with a dozen cottage pie's worth of food, along with 600g of peas, the same of carrots and four pieces of garlic bread.

In total, he ate 6kg of beef and 2kg of potatoes in an hour, and it took him just eight minutes and 30 seconds to clear the dish of the first dozen pies.

Going back for seconds took him a lot longer, and he polished off the other tray of pies with about 20 minutes left to go.

Cattlemans owner Gary King said Joel had put in a 'superhuman' effort and he didn't think it was 'humanly possible' for anyone to consume that much food in such a short space of time.

For has part, Joel said he felt 'horribly full' afterwards, which is unsurprising considering he'd just polished off over 9kg of food, and when he managed to get to sleep it put him in a 10 hour food coma while his digestive system tried its best to cope.

Warning others not to try and take on the challenge he chomped his way through, he said: "It was quite a feat because physically and mentally I had to push myself to eat it.

"I didn't think I'd finish two of them but the second was there so I figured I'd try it. The first one went down really easy as it was nice and moist but after consuming 5kg of food the second one was much harder. You can only eat so much.

"I felt horrible after it and completely full. It's not something I'd recommend anybody trying. I felt superhuman afterwards but no, I'm only human."

Cattlemans Steakhouse plans for Joel to take on more challenges later this week and will be streaming them live on TikTok account @cattlemanssteakhousepgn.
