Jared Fogle Gained A TON Of Weight In Prison


Former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle was arrested last year after police raided his house and discovered child pornography. He later admitted to pedophilia and was convicted of having sex two minors. Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

It appears he’s not doing too well in prison, Gawker reports. The former head of the Jared Fogle Foundation and poster boy for the Subway sandwich company has reportedly gained 30 pounds from binge-eating in prison since his incarceration last November.

According to In Touch Weekly, Fogle goes through Frosted Flakes, Cake and Honey Buns by the boxes. As he eats, his fellow inmates taunt him.

The binge eating is a likely result from the stressful environment of prison. It’s definitely got to be worse for pedophiles. Fogle admitted to an altercation with some inmates at the prison gym.


The Competitive Eater’s Guide to Maximizing Candy Consumption on Halloween


It’s Halloween tomorrow. You know what that means. No, not doing candy shooters. Not going out in your skimpiest “sexy candy corn” outfit. Nah, it means it’s time to get chocolate wasted — get this — on actual chocolate. What, did you think trick or treating was just for little kids? Please. This year, Halloween is for the grown-ups, and we’re here to teach you how to do it right.

Foodbeast enlisted the help of world-ranked competitive eater Naader “Freak8r” Reda to map out the best way to eat as much Halloween candy as humanly possible in one sitting. The way we figure, we’re finally old enough to do it without anyone telling us not to. So go on, make five-year-old you proud.


Step 1: Eat light beforehand


If you want to face your sugary feast pro eater-style, start by eating light the day before and morning of; we’re talking protein shakes and leafy greens. This way, not only is your digestive system nice and clean, but you’re also starving by trick-or-treating time. Perfect for some primo candy-binging.

Step 2: Fruity stuff first


As tempted as you’ll be to reach for a Snickers, chocolates tend to be hard to chew and even harder to swallow. For maximum efficiency, stick to fruity and sour candies first — think Mike & Ikes and Warheads and lollipops. Indulge occasionally in a Reese’s Cup for the jolt of protein and fiber to help temper the inevitable sugar crash.

Step 3: Keep warm liquids on hand


Reda recommends using liquids only sparingly (too much fills your stomach and slows you down). But if you must drink, warm beverages like tea and coffee aid digestion.

Step 4: Food coma

If you’re able to follow steps 1 through 3, Reda says, you could “probably eat for over an hour and have a very interesting Halloween night.” Just be prepared to sleep in and feel awful the next morning. You know what they say, “You know you had a good weekend when you’re still recovering two days later.”

Apparently, Foodbeasters Who Concoct Bizarre Food Combinations Are Also Binge Eaters

Beer and bacon deep fried Doritos, pizza ice cream, spam and peanut butter cookies – if you’re one of our regular readers, you know that we at Foodbeast are no strangers to the bizarre food combination scene. But did you also know that “concocting” such outlandish treats could be a telltale sign you’re a binge eater?

According to a study done by the University of Alabama Birmingham, an estimated 8 million people in the U.S. suffer from binge-eating disorders, and “people who concoct are more likely to binge eat than those who overeat without bingeing.”

Those who admitted to concocting reported “the same emotions as drug users during the act,” such as “excitement” and “anxiety,” as well as later feelings of “shame and disgust.”

41.2% of the “concocting participants,” moreover, explained the behavior was most often due to a “craving,” while only 9% reported hunger as a motive – all of which makes me wonder just how telling such a study could be after all. I mean, maybe we just have better food than everybody else.

To wit, here’s a list of some of our best/worst binge-iest food posts ever:
