Everyone is praising Joye Chestnut after he retained the Hot Dog Eating Champion title in 2023 .

Now let do some in detail analysis on how much calories the Eating Legend gained in a single championship even and what will be the efforts he needs now to burn these extra calories.

1. Joey Chestnut weighs around 229 lbs and having height of 1.85 m.

2. For Chestnut, each Nathan’s Original Coney Island natural casing beef frank accounts for approximately 170 calories, while a Nathan’s restaurant-style bun contributes around 130 calories. Based on these figures, Chestnut’s 62 hot dogs and buns would equate to an astonishing total of 18,600 calories consumed during this year’s contest alone.

Now going deeper on what are the activities required and total how many days he need to burn the gained 18,600 calories.

Strategy 1- Running at Fast Speed :

Suppose, he starts running at a fast speed of 7.500 miles/hrand runs 6 miles daily. It will burn around 1,040 calories. It will take around 48 minutes to cover the distance. So in this way, by only running 48 minutes/day at speed of 7.500 miles per hour , he will need ~18 days to burn the total calories gained.

Strategy 2 – Walking at Very Fast speed :

Suppose, he starts walking at very fast speed of 4 miles/hr and covers 6 miles daily. It will burn around702 calories daily and take around 1 hour and 30 minutes to cover the distance. So in this way, by only walking 1 hour and 30 minutes/day at speed of 4 miles per hour, he will need ~26 days to burn the total calories gained.

Strategy 3 – Cycling at fast speed :

Suppose, he starts cycling at a fast speed of 17.500 miles/hr and covers 20 miles daily. It will burn around 1,426 calories. It will take around 1 hour and 9 minutes to cover the distance. So in this way, by only Cycling 1 hour and 9 minutes /day at speed of 17.500 miles per hour , he will need ~13 days to burn the total calories gained.

Any guess ,which strategy now Joey will follow?

Please note, The number of calories that the body burns during regular daily activities or exercise is dependent on various factors, so it is not an exact science. The results of this calculator (and any other) are based on standardized data that references an “average” person, so it is only an estimate.
