If you've been watching the 2008 Olympics like I've been, then you're probably aware that USA swimmer Michael Phelps is trying to win a record number of gold medals. But do you know what he eats to stay on top of his ambitious game? In a recent video interview, Phelps explains that he fuels his body by eating between 8,000 and 10,000 calories a day. Since the US Olympian doesn't cook, this means eating (not-so-short) stacks of pancakes, buffalo enchiladas, and towering sandwiches packed with turkey, cheese, mayonnaise, and vegetables.
Watch the video below and tell me: Are you surprised by the swimmer's daily caloric intake? Personally, I'm a bit envious! I would probably go through those calories by eating Tex-Mex dishes. What would you eat on a diet of 10,000 calories a day?
