The Phelps Training Diet

Another reason to be a Phelps Phan:

Check what this dude eats!


Phelps kick starts his day and his metabolism with three fried-egg sandwiches, but with a few customised additions: cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and, of course, mayonnaise.

Amuse-bouche out of the way, he throws back two cups of coffee and sits down to an omelette – containing five eggs – and a bowl of grits, a porridge of coarsely ground corn. He’s not finished yet. Bring on the three slices of French toast, with powdered sugar on top to make sure there’s no skimping on the calories. And to finish: three chocolate chip pancakes.

That’s just breakfast y’all…click the link above to see what the rest of the day entails. And also the comments on the blog are pretty hilarious. Want to know what elite athletes eat? How about how they strain the U bend in their toilets but count the “CBFD” Calories burned from defacating…Oy.

One Response to “The Phelps Training Diet”

  1. I saw a story on NBC/MSNBC about all the food Phelps eats. They titled the story “Eat – Sleep – Swim”, because that’s basically all he does (besides cuddle with his bulldog, who is adorable). I am extraordinarily impressed with what he and so many other athletes have accomplished at the Games. I watch as much as I can.
