Nathan’s Hot Dog Contest

Nathan's Hot Dog ContestNathan’s Hot Dog Contest, Health conscious people ruin everything. This year, as I settle in to see ESPN broadcast of the famous hot dog during the 96th annual Nathan’s eating contest on the Fourth of July, I’ll have more to worry about that if Kobayashi is going to storm the stage.

Flash News The Daily Beast: hot dogs can be bad for you. The website, in classic fashion Debbie Downer, said that “hot dogs are a little over processed, fatty meats and fillers loaded with carcinogenic preservatives.”

I consider my buzz died.

Although far from a surprise those hot dogs are not exactly the healthiest choice at all, I do not think anyone really eats their health benefits.

Hot dogs are like any food very good: There is a strong inverse relationship between how well you know something and how good it is for you. My favorite hot dog, for example, is covered with barbecue and a salad of shredded cabbage and affectionate The Barnyard. The only concession to healthy eating I am willing to make is that I get the dog grilled and not fried.

Other examples that prove this theory is burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches.

Therefore, if you are brave enough to read through the list of the Beast of the best and worst sausage, with a ranking based on calories, fat, saturated fat, sodium and protein content, this is what you’ll discover:

The healthiest dogs are not really hot dogs at all.

Only one of the healthiest five hot dogs is actually made of beef. The healthiest of them all is a dog buffalo, followed by turkey, chicken (twice) and then the meat.

The rest of the top 20 includes a good amount of beef, but is usually combined with other meat products. Most of these products also are labeled “fat free”, we all know is a euphemism for “not as good as the alternative.”

The unhealthy looks much nicer than the others.

The eighth open the healthier meat and cheddar cheese. Need I say more? I’m salivating even though I just ate a cheeseburger. Not to mention the fourth unhealthy is a jalapeno cheese sausage. Conclusion: The cheese makes everything less healthy, and therefore taste better.

The less healthy open to all, and most likely it is tasty? Sausages Dietz & Watson meat.

And yes, the famous Nathan skinless sausages came in 14 th position of the “mortal”, which means Joey Chestnut will probably be the most satisfied after you eat over 50 hot dogs to get their fifth title in Coney Island straight.
