This is the stomach-churning moment a man eats 300 Brussels sprouts in 28 minutes.

Max Stanford, 34, from London, set out to wolf down 400 sprouts to break the world record held by competitive eater Emma Dalton.

But the charity worker could only manage 300 of the Christmas dinner staple from a 4.2kg platter.

The video shows Max eating the sprouts with a toothpick as he quickly gobbles down the first two plates.

But the bitter taste causes him to use tomato ketchup, mayonnaise and curry sauce to make the challenge more palatable. 

He also gulps down water, squash and coke to help him beat the record.

The YouTuber takes on various challenges on his channel Max Vs Food and he recently set a world record by eating 23 McPlant burgers in less than an hour. 

Emma Dalton, from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, currently holds the record eating a gut-busting 325 sprouts in 36 minutes in 2016. 

Wayne Sherlock, from Drumconrath, Ireland, beat the world record for the number of sprouts eaten in 60 seconds managing 33.

Max said: ‘It was much harder than I thought, partially because I didn’t cook them that well.

‘Instead of being roasted with some flavour, most of them were microwaved which made them bland but also the texture of them was really mushy!

‘But also partly because of flavour fatigue of eating the same thing without any change-up of flavour.

‘They also got cold pretty quickly and the texture was pretty bland and mushy because of the way I cooked them.’

Max vowed to ‘never’ eat a sprout again after he spent 28 minutes and 33 seconds scoffing them.

But now, he is happy to have a few on his plate on Christmas Day.

He said: ‘At the time, I didn’t want to see another sprout ever again.

‘But I eat pretty clean and nutritious food which includes lots of vegetables, including sprouts!

‘I do weekly food challenges so I have the capacity to deal with lots of food in one sitting without having a problem with my stomach.’
