Olympic super-champion Michael Phelps eats 12,000 calories a day - six times the amount consumed by the average male. In one day, Phelps will consume (among other foods) an entire pizza, a kilogram of pasta, and 5 stuffed sandwhiches. Here is a typical daily menu from the legend himself:
Breakfast Three fried-egg sandwiches with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise. An omelette -- containing five eggs. A bowl of grits. Three slices of French toast, with powdered sugar on top. Three chocolate chip pancakes. Two cups of coffee.
Lunch Half a kilogram of enriched pasta. Two large ham and cheese sandwiches on white bread with mayo. Energy drinks (about 1,000 calories).
Dinner Half a kilo of enriched pasta. A whole pizza. Energy drinks (about 1,000 calories).
