Everyone wants to make the most of an all-you-can-eat buffet, but for one US woman the buffet won this round.

Danielle Shapiro, 24, ended up in hospital after tackling a sushi restaurant's US$50 (A$70) unlimited feast — realising her eyes may have been bigger than her stomach.

Ms Shapiro documented her Japanese feast with her friend on TikTok, showing all the food they ate, and posting it online.

In a now viral clip from December 23, Ms Shapiro shared a video of herself in a hospital bed and captioned it: "All you can eat sushi gone wrong".

In an earlier video, she had posted a video sharing all the food she'd eaten, including miso soup, four pieces of gyoza, two jalapeno poppers, eight green dragon rolls, snow rolls, California rolls, edamame and a wakame roll.

In total it was 32 pieces of sushi.

Captioning the post "We were rolled out of the restaurant", some users commented she probably wasn't expecting to roll out of the restaurant on a stretcher when she left.

"Top 10 videos taken before disaster," one user joked.

"Rolled out of the restaurant and straight to the ER," another commented.

Suffered from acid reflux

According to the New York Post, Ms Shapiro woke up the next morning feeling unwell with "intense" stomach and chest pain.

Her grandmother and boyfriend took her to the hospital where she was diagnosed with acid reflux.

However, despite the sushi sidelining her for a few days, she said it won't stop her from eating it again.

"This experience has not ruined sushi for me, or the all-you-can-eat sushi experience," she said according to the publication.

"I did learn that next time I need to listen to my body and take things slower."

According to Mayo Clinic, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the tube connecting your mouth and stomach (oesophagus).

The backwash (acid reflux) can irritate the lining of your oesophagus. According to the website, treatment often includes antacids that neutralise stomach acid.
