The Meat Sweats is a term of art in the world of competitive eating used to describe a condition that strikes certain eaters in meat-centric competitions. First identified by writer David Kreizman, the meat sweats overwhelm some gurgitators with profuse perspiration. This systemic condition is reportedly prompted by the combination of protein and adrenaline.
"There is no known remedy for meat sweats, besides, of course, not eating so much meat. However, an extremely controversial theory has been out forward stating that eating copious amounts of fish can reverse the effects."
