T​he gold-medal menu of an olympian

Here is Micheal Phelps 2008 diet and it includes 12,000 calories a day!

1y ago

O​ne the most successful olympians to ever compete, Micheal Phelps doesn't let anyone down with his diet either; consuming around 12,000 calories day for the 2008 olympics in order to train and stay in top form. Here's the low-down on his high-up calorie munching diet:

B​reakfast 2008:

1) E​gg Sandwiches - Loaded with cheese, fried onions and mayo.

2​) After those - Chocolate chip pancakes, French toast and a five-egg omelet

T​hat in itself is more than an average man needs in one day! But...

L​unch 2008:

1) Two ham and cheese sandwiches

2​) Two energy drinks

3​) A pound of pasta (usually spaghetti)

D​inner 2008:

1​) A whole pizza

2​) A pound of pasta (again)

Y​ou'd be pleased to hear that Phelps has now decided to cut back, admitting it to be a bit excessive but his new idea still involves a lot of calories, but maybe of the healthier kind!

B​reakfast - Present

1​) Fruit

2​) Coffee

3​) Large bowl of oatmeal

4​) Ham and cheese omelet


1​) Meatball sub


1​) Whole grains

2​) Lean meat

3​) Veggies

H​ow much could you stomach?

  • I’m disappointed you didn’t photoshop a cookie in his hand in the place of the medal.

  • Swimming in a two hour session burns off approx 1000 calories. I was a swimmer athlete in my high school. We have to eat carb and calorie heavy things such as bagels and fruit and pasta and drink a shit ton of Gatorade
