Watching some features on Olympians I found this contrast interesting....

Shawn Johnson eats super healthy and never eats candy. I'm assuming this is somehow actually necessary for female gymnasts since there are so many anorexic/bulemic gymnasts. I'm a little surprised do they really struggle to stay thin with 4-8 hours of training every day??

Then comes the feature on Michael Phelps. He needs to eat 8000-10000 calories per day! This is not at all easy and he eats massive quantities of the worst restaurant food (and most delicious) you can imagine. According to his book, this is a typical breakfast: 3 fried-egg sandwiches, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise, an omelette, a bowl of grits, and three slices of french toast with powdered sugar, all washed down with 3 chocolate chip pancakes.
