The competitive eater who wore a red and white Santa hat sat down and shoved 150 quail eggs and 10 chicken eggs down his throat in less than 40 minutes on Tuesday, December 23, 2014  in a restaurant located at central China’s Hunan province.

Yizhong said the season “seemed like an appropriate time to eat eggs” because the homophone for “egg” was contained in the Chinese word for  Christmas “Shengdanjie.”

Speaking to AFP, the man said, “At the time I got to 160, I was becoming tired of the flavour so I stopped. It wasn’t because I was full.”

Yizhong, the most celebrated exponent of the art of competitive eating in China, has previously dispatched 147 dumplings in a single sitting and once polished off 40 bowls of noodles in 15 minutes.

He said: “Now I’m back to normal, I’ve had ice cream and barbecued meat since.

“As a competitive eater, I want to test my limits eating all kinds of food.

“I never tried eating so many eggs before, and I feel I still haven’t reached my limit.”
