However, the number of calories in other types of Nathan’s products varies.
This implies that for the 62 hot dogs and buns that Chestnut gorged on this year, he would have ingested a grand total of 18,600 calories. The calories from the franks would have totaled 10,540, and the calories from the buns would have added another 8,060.
Chestnut devoured an even greater total of 18,900 calories the year before, thanks to his consumption of 63 hot dogs and buns. That is over six times more than the daily average that is suggested for a man of his age and stature.

Additionally, Nathan’s natural casing beef franks have 480 milligrams of sodium and 16 grams of total fat per dog. This means that consuming one hot dog contributes approximately 21% of the daily recommended requirements for both fat and salt.
Chestnut’s annual consumption of 62 hot dogs resulted in a total fat intake of 992 grams and a salt intake of 29,760 mg.
Diets that are higher in salt are linked to an increased risk of developing high blood pressure, which is a key contributing factor in the development of heart disease and stroke.
