An athlete in Germany has found there is a limit to 'all-you-can-eat'.

For most people it's eating enough food for a full stomach, but for triathlete Jaroslav Bobrowski it's eating so much food the restaurant bans you from consuming any more.

Mr Bobrowski ploughed his way through 100 plates of sushi as part of the $26 buffet option at the Running Sushi restaurant in Landshut, Germany.

"This is not normal, how much he eats. I myself am dead after 13 plates, but he always took five or seven plates at a time, so there was a gap on the sushi carousel and the other guests asked if we had skimped on fish," owner Tan Le complained to Bild.

Photos on TripAdvisor appear to show three pieces of sushi on each plate, meaning Mr Bobrowski could well have consumed around 300 pieces of sushi in the one sitting.
