What does Michael Phelps eat?
Like I previously posted (Aug 9), Phelps, aged 23 and the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time, was told he has to eat between 8000- 10 000 calories a day... something he says is "impossible"!
He does try, however, and eats "pretty much whatever I want and as much as I want".
Here's an example of a breakfast for Phelps:
"...Three sandwiches of fried eggs, cheese, lettuce, tomato, fried onions and mayonnaise, add one omelet, a bowl of grits, and three slices of french toast with powdered sugar, then wash down with three chocolate chip pancakes."
He also said: "I'm eating a lot of pasta and pizza. I'm eating a lot of carbs... "
