Eat your heart out, New York, there's a new competitive eater in town.

Takeru Kobayashi? Not even in Major League Eating anymore. Joey "Jaws" Chestnut? Full of it. This year is the year of Andy "Feast Mode" Campbell, and it will be proven on Sunday when I qualify for the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest at Citi Field.

But how does one take down the likes of Chestnut, who devoured 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes last year to break the world record?

The professor of pig, Major League Eating's Crazy Legs Conti sat down with me on HuffPost Live to share all the secrets I'll need to win come Sunday (and then the world stage on July 4).

Not that I need the help -- I already won a competitive eating contest to predict the outcome of Super Bowl 48. Go Seahawks.
