If you're looking for the next diet craze...
Don't look here.
Olympic Gold Medalist Swimmer Michael Phelps eats 12,000 calories a day, more than the average person should eat in an entire week. And a typical day looks like this:
Breakfast: Three fried-egg sandwiches loaded with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise. Two cups of coffee. One five-egg omelet. One bowl of grits. Three slices of French toast topped with powdered sugar. Three chocolate-chip pancakes.
Lunch: One pound of enriched pasta. Two large ham and cheese sandwiches with mayo on white bread. Energy drinks packing 1,000 calories.
Dinner: One pound of pasta. An entire pizza. More energy drinks.
Mmmm. Chocolate-chip pancakes. I might take up swimming...or just get fat.
