Woman devours 37 hot dogs to win Independence Day eating contest

This is your body after 70 hot dogs competitors and doctors dish on Nathan’s contest side effects

It is the most glamorous and glorified event on the professional eating circuit. Chestnut broke his own world record by eating 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

This year's championship contest will be held July 4, and it will be televised on the ESPN family of networks. Twenty-one men in all participated in the competition.

"I do a practice contest, and then recovery is important". It is the victory and the accomplishment that means the most to its participants.

Joey Chestnut proved it again: He's second to bun. Chestnut beat 20 other contestants to earn the coveted "Mustard Belt" and ate a record 74 hot dogs and buns, surpassing the previous record of 72 dogs he set past year. On the men's side, Chesnutt ate more than 10 complete hot dogs than his closest competitor. "Joey said, "look at my plates" and Carmen said 'look at my plates.' We counted the plates that they had eaten and it was 64 and 74".

"I'm going to keep riding the wave", he said of his carer on the competitive eating circuit.

Who knew eating hot dogs could be an extreme sport?! His previous record was 72 hot dogs.

Other events being broadcasted today, for the 4th of July holiday, include Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular and A Capitol Fourth.

Lesco, whose nickname is the Cardboard Shell, was subdued after her latest attempt to win it all. According to Major League Eating, the body that oversees professional eating contests, Chestnut once ate almost 13 pounds of deep-fried asparagus in 10 minutes and 55 glazed donuts in the same amount of time.
