(Just a curiosity…certainly no recommended for everybody)
Swimming sensation Michael Phelps declares that he eats 12 000 calories per day.
Typical meals in a day are described here.
In an interview to IGN sports he had said:
“IGN Sports: What about your diet? Are you always eating super healthy? I eat pretty much whatever I want. I don’t have a strict diet. It’s all about cramming in as many calories into my system as I possibly can. To be honest with you, I have a tough time keeping weight on.
IGN Sports: What about fast food?
Michael Phelps: Bring it on!
IGN Sports: Do you take a multi vitamin?
Michael Phelps: I do.
IGN Sports: Gotta take the multi.
Michael Phelps: You must.
IGN Sports: Even if you’re not an Olympic caliber athlete, the multi does you right.
Michael Phelps: It helps.
IGN Sports: You know there are people out there who would kill for your metabolism.
Michael Phelps: If I could somehow bottle that, I would be a pretty rich guy.”
(He is already a pretty rich guy…)
