Michael Phelps Dishes on His Unusual Eating Habits

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?
