15 of the Most Insanely Huge Food Challenges in America

Mega meals. Portion distortion. No matter how you phrase it, restaurant serving sizes have been expanding to epic proportions, and this phenomenon could be partly to blame for the obesity epidemic.

Check out 15 of the most insane monster meals in the country. Do you have what it takes to finish one?

So far, only seven teams have been able to do it. Are you next?
