|Joey Chestnut competes in 2013 Coney Island July 4th Hot Dog Eating contest|
Having said that, I try not to think of the amount of calories that Joey Chestnut consumed in those 10 minutes, but hey it's the 4th of July! What better way to celebrate this country's independence than to eat a classic all-American food item...the hot dog. Not only does Joey Chestnut eat anything from hot dogs to chicken wings, but he does so in record time. Now that's what I call fast food. I think everyone is wondering how Joey Chestnut is able to avoid gaining weight. What's his secret? Perhaps it's just in his genes.
