Last Exile wrote:Actually White, the Japanese win a lot of eating contests. Stature doesn't necessarily equate to how much a person can eat. It's more related to leptin signalling, the shape of the stomach and other factors. If you can trick your system into not feeling full or simply rush the system before it can react, it's possible. The thing with Fuu in Samurai Champloo being one heck of an eater despite being petite wasn't a stretch of the imagination. It's quite plausible.
