James Smoliga, the author of the study and a professor of psychology in the department of physical therapy at High Point University, told CNN he was fascinated by finding the limitation that the human body could manage and sharpened his research on competitive eaters over the average person.

Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest records: Who has eaten the most hot dogs on July 4?

  Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest records: Who has eaten the most hot dogs on July 4? No man is hungrier on Independence Day than Joey Chestnut, and the record book shows just that.The annual competition returns for another year to its iconic Coney Island location in New York, where a competitors stuff their faces with dozens of hot dogs and buns in a 10-minute span.

"The ordinary person would probably run into a stomach capacity issue," Smoliga said. "But competitive eaters specifically train to expand their stomachs, so for top competitive eaters, it's probably more the chewing and eating within a time frame that limits it.

"There's not a whole lot of research on competitive eaters, but what we do know is obese individuals and individuals with binge eating disorders have similar types of physiology: They can have more food in the stomach, which can disrupt mental feelings of fullness."

As a psychologist, Smoliga has studied other sports phenomena and said it wasn't until the big boom of competitive eating in the early 2000s that he was able to see breakthroughs in the hot dog-eating capacity.

"In something like the 100-meter dash, when looking at records and performances, you will notice there are small, incremental changes in performance," Smoliga said. "But then something big changes — either the sport becomes more popular or professionalized, or there's a new drug or procedure, and performance limits rise."
