Congratulations to Michael Phelps for his amazing success in the swimming pool. How does he do it, you ask? Besides the hours of training, the superior motivation, the world-class agility, he follows a special diet. You can do this too, and a writer at the Globe & Mail did it with hilarious results. Read about it here (warning: not for the digestically-sensitive) and realize that it is not easy to consume 12,000 calories a day. Now that Mr. Phelps has won more medals than anyone ever, he might want to cut back a little on the fried egg sandwiches in his future life. Could this diet have been something to psyche-out opponents? Does he really eat no fruit? It interesting to compare this to diet designed for a person who is essentially a sprinter in the water with the diet of a pro cyclist, where fueling for endurance is key.
