There are days Molly Schuyler eats little or nothing at all.

Most days she eats leftovers off the plates of her four children and a salad or two.

And then there are days when she eats a 72-ounce steak, shrimp cocktail, salad, a baked potato and a roll in less than five minutes. And then for "dessert," she does it once more, in nine minutes.

The self-described stay-at-home mom/eater said Tuesday she takes on food challenges and competitions for the fun of it - and for the free grub.

She's not in it for the money or fame, so if it ever stops being fun, she'll push away from the table.

Competitive eating fans hope that's not any time soon because Schuyler is fast becoming a star in the world of quick bites and bottomless stomachs.

Emphasis on the word "fast."

Schuyler has eaten:

– nine pounds of fried mushrooms in eight minutes,
– nearly 13 slices of pizza in 10 minutes (6.9 pounds),
– eight beef patties in 1 minute, 46 seconds,
– and forty 2.9-ounce bratwursts in eight minutes.

And if you haven't gotten a sore stomach by now, there's also the 363 chicken wings in 30 minutes to win the Wing Bowl (and $22,000 in prize money).

Pretty impressive for someone who weighs 120 pounds.

    I guess it's the money. And for all I know, perhaps she and her family really need it. For me, I'd rather enjoy the tastes, and hang back on the devouring.

    I was hoping to gain some insight into how she does this by the article headline. What happened? This article tells me nothing.

    The biggest steak I've ever eaten was 28 oz – with potato and salad – and I was practically comatose afterword. I can't imagine eating a 72 oz steak...followed by another one.

    While this is impressive on some level, part of the joy of eating is savoring the flavors. I couldn't bing-eat any quant i ty of mushrooms or dead bovine because I enjoy those flavors too much.
