    Default Michael Phelps has a horrible diet

    If true I seriously would not be surprised if he starts getting serious health issues when he is middle aged. I read in one magazine that he eats 7 whole eggs for breakfast. I don't care how much you train that is not good.

    Other facts, he eats 3000 calories for breakfast and 12,0000 calories in one day.

    His heart can pump 3 times more blood in one minute than an average male heart.

    Phelps begins with a breakfast of champions, which starts off with a five-egg omelet, two cups of coffee, three fried egg sandwiches, three chocolate chip pancakes, French toast with powdered sugar, and, to top it all off, a bowl of grits.

    Big,
    Maybe he should call you for some diet tips.

    LOL. The irony of Big commenting on someone else's diet is just too much.

    If he eats that much... given how lean he is... imagine how many hours he spends training. That's a lot of swimming; I wonder if swimmers go crazy from sheer boredom sometimes.

    I was the captain of my swim team in high school and I did all the distance events. Since I would swim a million miles a day at practice (exaggeration), I had to do stuff like sing to myself to keep myself from going crazy.

    I was so happy my senior year when I decided to start wrestling and never had to swim again....

    But getting back to the original topic, Phelps' diet is crazy. I wish my metabolism was that fast.
