The Top Ten

1 Biggest amount of metal eaten by a human (nearly 9 tons of metal) Biggest amount of metal eaten by a human (nearly 9 tons of metal)

I always wondered how he ate that. Not how he digested that, but the technique. Did he take a bite or did he cut a piece out of it and gulped it down? How were his insides not hurt by the hard metal? Did he "chew"? - Martin_Canine

His method was to break it into small pieces, he then drank mineral oil and continued to drink water while swallowing the metal bits. This acted as a lubricant to help the metal slide down his throat. He also had no problem "passing" his unusual diet. I think he didn't "chew" all bits but sometimes he did. - Metal_Treasure

Michel Lotito (1950-2007) was a French entertainer aka Monsieur Mangetout ("Mr Eats-All"). He deliberately consumed indigestible objects - metal, glass, rubber and other materials. Between 1959 and 1997 Lotito had eaten nearly 9 tons of metal. He began public performances at the age of 16.
His strange low-calorie diet included:
18 bicycles, a Cessna light aircraft, 15 supermarket shopping carts, 7 T.V. sets, 2 beds, 6 chandeliers, a computer, a coffin, and a pair of skis. He also consumed the brass plaque by the Guinness Book commemorating his abilities. The Cessna 150 took about 2 years to be "eaten" (1978 to 1980).
He didn't suffer injuries and died due to natural causes. He said, however, that bananas and hard-boiled eggs made him sick. He had an eating disorder known as pica. - Metal_Treasure
