Michael Phelps is one Hungry MF’er


MIchael Phelps is dominating in Beijing, and is now one of the most dominant Olympic athletes ever.  That would be great if anyone still cared about the Olympics.

I won’t lie, they guy is entertaining to watch.  It is fun to see someone dominate every single event he’s in.  Can you really be the best at everything?  This is like someone on the track winning the 100, the hurdles, the 200, the 400, and the long jump.  Carl Lewis came close, but not quite.

So Phelps just let people know what he eats in a single day in order to keep enough fuel in his body through all these races.  Here’s the list of what he throws down to hit his target 12,000 calories a day.


  • three fried-egg sandwiches, with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise.
  • two cups of coffee and a five egg omelet
  • a bowl of grits
  • three slices of French toast with powdered sugar on top
  • three chocolate chip pancakes.


  • entire box of pasta
  • two large ham and cheese sandwiches on white bread with lots of mayo.
  • 1,000 calories of protein shake


  • another entire box of pasta
  • entire pizza
  • another protein shake

How do you even sit down to eat all that?  He told NBC that all he does is eat, swim and sleep.  After looking at that list, there must be a lot of deuce dropping involved as well.  You just can’t burn off that much pure volume.

He better watch out for all of that mayonaise though.  Otherwise he might have a different profile once he retires from swimming.

    I can’t lie-the Olympics haven’t been on my radar since 1984 or whenever the summer games were in LA. But I still check the news to make sure Team USA leads in the medal count cuz I can’t have my country going out like some busters (suck it losers!).

    I am dialed in on Michael Phelps though! Can you imagine 8 medals in any contest? This dude might roll outta China with 8 GOLD medals! That is so sick. He grabbed 2 of them in like 3 hours the other day. I get winded after a good game of marco polo so I can’t imagine Olympic gold caliber swimming in that span of time. I’m no nutritionist but whatever he’s eating, go on with it Mike.

    Lastly, can I get a uh-huh from the ladies on that Phelps body? The dome / grill combo is not Olympic quality but it wouldn’t matter cuz the reflection off the gold medals would keep you blinded anyway. Plus he loves his moms. I’ll take it.

    Quietly, I was going to jab my man for being a swimmer with REAL shark teeth. You know, I hope he makes enough money off of endorsements to get his teeth fixed…or maybe he could melt down his medals to make a custom grill. All of that. But instead…I chilled. Mike’s grill always looks like he’s chewing on something though.

    Mission accomplished: 8 gold medals. Unbelievable.
