Michael Phelps daily diet - video

Michael Phelps consumes around 8-10,000 calories a day to fuel his body for all of the training he does.

Other reports suggests Michael Phelps consumes up to 12,000 calories a day to fuel his swimming workouts that see him swimming on average 5 hours a day, six days a week.

Here is a sample of Michael Phelps’ daily diet:

Breakfast: Three fried egg sandwiches with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions, and mayonnaise.
A five-egg omelet.
A bowl of grits.
Three slices of French toast with powdered sugar.
Three chocolate pancakes.
Two cups of coffee.

Lunch: A pound of pasta with tomato sauce.
Two large ham, cheese, and mayo sandwiches on white bread.
Energy drinks.

Dinner: A pound of pasta with tomato sauce.
Six to eight pizza slices (basically, a whole pizza!).
Energy drinks.

Plelps doesn’t cook, so when he moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan local restaurants were very happy.

Even if you could get all of Michael Phelps’ fame and fortune, could you spend 5-6 hours every day swimming ?

I wonder how fast he would be if he ate some vegetables or fruit to go along with all that pizza and white bread.

He doesn’t have time to consume calories and carbs in the forms of fruits and vegetables because he would have to consume LOADS more of that than the food he currently eats to get the same energy benefits. This food suits how he trains and he doesn’t look a bit like he eats all of this delicious and unhealthy food.
