    Michael Phelps' Diet

    Post by runner_dude on Thu Aug 14, 2008 11:07 am

    He starts "off his day by eating 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.

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

    8,000-10,000 a day. Contrast that with Chelsie Memmel of gymnastics, who eats a piece of fruit for dinner. No wonder they all got hurt.

    I think the "energy drinks" are more like protein shakes and such. And a bit of caffine often helps performance, and you don't get as dehydrated swimming as running (and if you do you can just drink up!)

    Yes, nothing hydrates me quite like chlorine and other assorted chemicals.....but I wonder how all the other swimmers feel. Lochte is probably doing at least 90% of Phelp's training volume, and he might actually be doing the same workouts. He's probably saying "I eat a lot too!" and everyone is telling him "Shut up, Lochte! You're blocking our view of the Boy Wonder."

    10000 calories and 4% body fat. I eat whole lot less than that and definitely ain't 4% body fat.

    anyone know how much Dean Karnazes eats everyday?

    I know he said on one of his 48 hour runs he ate 28,000 calories

    I bet he eats similar to what Phelps eats everyday in terms of calories, though 10 times healthier
