Last night I heard on the radio that a man won a hot dog eating contest by downing 49 hot dogs. It brought to mind something St. Thomas wrote about gluttony:
"Gluttony denotes inordinate concupiscence in eating. Two things are to be considerred in eating, namely the food we eat, and the eating thereof.... one fails to observe the due manner of eating by eating greedily."
I don't know what Thomas would have said about such a contest, but to eat that many hot dogs at once is surely harming one's health. Using the info from Nathan's Famous, that would come to 735 grams of fat, 23,030 mg of sodium, and 8330 calories--in one sitting!
