Joey Chestnut isn’t feeling great after the New York hot dog contest

Joey Chestnut on Tuesday admitted he “doesn’t feel so good” a day after sucking up 63 hot dogs while driving to victory at the annual Nathan’s Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest – but downplayed the post-binge bloat and said it was similar to routine muscle soreness that other athletes experience.

“I probably smell like meat,” the 38-year-old joked to the hosts of NBC’s Today.

“I don’t feel great, but like anything, a marathoner doesn’t feel great after a marathon,” added the eternal Chomp champion. “It will take me a day and a half to recover.”

Chestnut recorded a record-breaking 15th win in Monday’s Independence Day competition.

While he was beating up the Blackheads, the 63 francs he gobbled was down on the 76 he gobbled up last year — perhaps in part because he temporarily stopped his hot dog consumption to ward off an animal rights activist who took to the Coney Island stage stormed in the middle of the competition.

The day after his 2021 win, Chestnut told the Post his clothes fit a little “tight” and that he had “crazy dreams” reminiscent of Christopher Nolan’s 2010 film “Inception.”

In a phone interview Tuesday morning, Chestnut said he didn’t have enough quality to remember visions.

“I couldn’t sleep well last night. I don’t remember any crazy dreams last night,” the California native told the Post. “It wasn’t the best sleep.”

Miki Sudo – who on Monday earned her eighth win in nine years in the women’s competition by devouring 40 hot dogs – told NBC morning show hosts that she was feeling “swollen” and “a little bloated.”
