PostSubject: The Olympics   15th August 2008, 06:53

Anyone watching the Olympics? I've been clued to the TV every night when I come home faint

I found this about Michael Phelps - the swimmer.

Michael Phelps

"According to the NY Post, the Olympic swimming sensation eats... 12,000 calories per day.

Here's what a days food intake looks like:

...three fried-egg sandwiches loaded with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise.

He follows that up with two cups of coffee, a five-egg omelet, a bowl of grits, three slices of French toast topped with powdered sugar and three chocolate-chip pancakes.

At lunch, Phelps gobbles up a pound of enriched pasta and two large ham and cheese sandwiches slathered with mayo on white bread - capping off the meal by chugging about 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks.

For dinner, Phelps really loads up on the carbs - what he needs to give him plenty of energy for his five-hours-a-day, six-days-a-week regimen - with a pound of pasta and an entire pizza.

Apparently he "washes all that down with another 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks".



Now here's my question:

WHY IS THS MAN NOT DEAD?? or diabetic?? or having heart attacks??

I don't care if he swims the English Channel....

12,000 calories A DAY!!!

Good Lord!!!
I couldn't do this on a bet.

Whoaa, that's alot.
That's interesting, thanks for sharing. I have been watching the swimming and volleyball events mostly :)

Here is what I had for breakfast and this is what I plan for the rest of the day:

A bowl of maple oatmeal with a banana in it and wheat germ on top
An english muffin with a little butter and fig preserves

Lunch:
A bacon and avocado sandwich with tortilla chips and home made picante

Supper:
Probably some fresh veggies and fried tofu or maybe with some fish

I quit eating red meat awhile back :)

You would think I would be skinnier eating this kind of food but somehow a candy bar or ice cream slips into the menu as well and then sometimes I don't eat as healthy as this because I like fried stuff once in awhile :)
Then there is fall weather where I cook alot :)

I like to make smoothies too and they mostly consist of:

1 banana
three tablespoons of yogurt
three tablespoons of frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1 tablespoon wheat germ
a little milk
some juice
some ice cubes

Even though I try to eat right, I still suffer from chronic pain and other things but I try :)

You do eat good Delta, I'm proud of you. I heard that Phelps eats 12,000 calories a day. I'm struggling to stay under 1200 sob

I try but sometimes I mess up I must admit :)
I wish my metablolism was as good as it use to be when I was skinny as a tooth pick LOL
