Another Fourth of July brings another round of competitive hot dog eating — and a lot of calories devoured. After bad weather delayed the men’s section of Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on Tuesday, Joey Chestnut preserved his winning championship by eating 62 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes at the tournament on Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.

Last year, Joey Chestnut hot dog eating contest won for the 15th time after eating 63 hot dogs and buns. He won the title of hot dog eating world champion in 2021 after consuming 76 hot dogs and buns. 

Joey Chestnut consumes how many calories

A serving size of one Nathan’s Original Coney Island natural casing beef frank contains 170 calories (according to the company’s website; other kinds vary) and one Nathan’s restaurant style bun provides 130 calories.

That implies Chestnut ingested 18,600 calories for the 62 hot dogs and buns he ate this year, with the franks accounting for 10,540 calories and the buns accounting for another 8,060 calories. 

Chestnut ingested an additional 18,900 calories last year, with 63 hot dogs and buns. That’s roughly six times the daily limit for a man his age and stature. His total for his record-breaking year of 76 hot dogs and buns would have been a whooping 22,800 calories!

Nathan’s natural casing beef franks include 16 grams of total fat and 480 milligrammes of salt per dog, accounting for around 21% of your daily recommended levels for each. 

Chestnut’s total fat and salt intake this year was 992 grams and 29,760 milligrammes, respectively, based on 62 franks consumed.
