Woman forced herself to eat as much sushi as she could in one sitting at an all-you-can-eat restaurant, ended up in the hospital
According to reports, the 24-year-old woman who forced herself to eat as much sushi as she could in one sitting at an all-you-can-eat restaurant ended up being rushed to the hospital. The woman was reportedly left in pain as a result of her feast. She reportedly ate 32 rolls of sushi, four gyozas, a bowl of edamame and a bowl of miso soup.
The 24-year-old woman from California, Danielle Shapiro, went to the $50-per-head sushi buffet at Sushi 85 restaurant on December 21 and in one sitting, she reportedly ate 32 rolls of sushi.
The woman also ate four gyozas, a bowl of edamame, two jalapeño poppers and a bowl of miso soup. The woman woke up the next morning with severe stomach pains and ended up in the hospital with Gastroesophageal Reflux disease which causes stomach acid to flow back into the esophagus.
The 24-year-old woman posted a video on TikTok and explained: “I am a huge fan of sushi. I like to eat it a couple times a month if I’m lucky. My best friend Amanda was in town for the weekend and she loves sushi as well so we were both looking forward to the All you can eat sushi experience.
The all you can eat sushi is about $50 a person so Amanda and I had to make sure we got our money’s worth, which meant eating a lot. Our dinner was about two hours long because we were so stuffed we had to keep taking breaks.”
Danielle took a video of herself eating dozens of dishes, revealing that she began the meal with a bowl of miso soup, before moving on to some heavier treats.
Danielle reportedly said: “Immediately after dinner we were so full we had to sit in my car for about 30 minutes before driving home. My stomach felt very firm from all the sushi and probably the rice that expanded in my stomach. That night I went to sleep at my boyfriend’s house and I had the worst stomach ache but didn’t think much of it since I had a huge meal! I am not a morning person so when I woke up around 6am the next day I knew something was wrong. My stomach and chest had intense pain and it was hard to take deep breaths.”
Her boyfriend and her grandmother reportedly drove the 24-year-old woman to the hospital. She remained there for several hours before being diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux disease and prescribed medication for the ailment.
Even though the doctors told her that she can leave the hospital after a few hours, she says it took several days for her to make a full recovery from her sushi-induced symptoms.
Danielle said she’ll definitely be eating her favorite food again – “I will definitely eat sushi again! This experience has not ruined sushi for me, or the all-you-can-eat sushi experience. I did learn that next time I need to listen to my body and take things slower.”
