Michael Phelps and the Dreaded Post-Olympic Weight Gain

Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps, has won 14 gold medals in his swimming career, and now he's taking a little break from his rigorous training. Before the Olympics, this athlete could easily suck down 8,000 to 10,000 calories a day and burn it all off because he was exercising so much, but now, he admits he's let himself go. Apparently he's big into junk food like chips, Rice Krispie Treats, and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and he's only been in the pool a few times since wowing us in Beijing. He said, "I'm out of shape right now." Currently he weighs 205 pounds, and he said he's never gone past 200 before.

Is he worried? No way. He's enjoying the well-deserved time off, and has also been promoting his new book No Limits: The Will to Succeed ($20). In January, Michael plans on beginning his training for the 2012 Olympics in London.
