As usual, it is not for the faint of heart.

Chestnut's contest winning 74 hot dogs amounted to a staggering total of 22,000 calories.

For reference, the average person has a recommended calorie intake of 2000 per day, and Chestnut just ate over eleven times that amount in ten minutes.

Aside from the calories, there are a bunch of other crazy nutritional values that come from eating that many hot dogs. He ingested 54,242 grams of sodium, which amounted to 2368 percent of his daily value and 444 grams of saturated fat, which added up to anther 2220 percent of his daily value.

How his body is able to maintain itself after one of these events is a mystery, and most people would not be able to handle it.

Problem is, I’m not a fan of hotdogs.

I'm pretty much a live and let live kinda guy, but I find and and all forms of competitive eating absolutely repulsive.
