Competitive eater Adam Moran, has earnt himself quite a following after posting a series of videos on his website Beard Meats Food undertaking some of the biggest food challenges in the world.

Greedy Brit Adam, 30, was set his latest gut-busting task by fans who challenged him to eat 25 of the McDonalds burgers in just sixty minutes.

Armed with £50 of the fast food chain’s burgers and plenty of water to wash them down, Adam took on the colossal challenge in the garden of his home in Leeds last month.

He originally got off to a great start scoffing a mammoth 15 burgers in just 35 minutes.

But Adam admits he began to struggle with the monstrous meal and despite washing the burgers down with water and ice cream he could only manage two more, bringing his total to 17 Big Macs in under an hour.

But 17 Big Mac’s was still enough to earn Adam a world record after his McDonalds feat was officially recognised as a new world record by website recordsetter.com.

Adam said: “It was enjoyable for about 7 Big Macs, after that it became exponentially less enjoyable with every bite.

“Funnily enough, it wasn’t the volume that got me, but the flavour of the gherkins. Had I ordered them without gherkins I might have downed a few more

“Afterwards I felt pretty bad, this was one of the more difficult eating stunts I’ve done, and I’d advise against anyone trying to replicate it

“I have my girlfriend who on standby to support me most of the time when I’m eating. Partly for support, partly as a bit of a failsafe if anything goes wrong.

“Some challenges are hard because of the amount of food, some because of the taste, or the time limit.”

The retail stock broker from Leeds, has taken part in over 40 food challenges, and runs a YouTube channel beard meats food where he keeps fans up to date with his most recent food challenges.
