    The Phelps diet

    Phelps lends a new spin to the phrase "Breakfast of Champions" by starting off his day by eating three fried-egg sandwiches loaded with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise.

    He follows that up with two cups of coffee, a five-egg omelet, a bowl of grits, three slices of French toast topped with powdered sugar and three chocolate-chip pancakes.

    At lunch, Phelps gobbles up a pound of enriched pasta and two large ham and cheese sandwiches slathered with mayo on white bread - capping off the meal by chugging about 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks.

    For dinner, Phelps really loads up on the carbs - what he needs to give him plenty of energy for his five-hours-a-day, six-days-a-week regimen - with a pound of pasta and an entire pizza.

    He washes all that down with another 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks.

    Re: The Phelps diet

    Why not the PB and J diet like J. Hamilton?

    Phelps diet sounds more like a Hawkeyes 1st trip to a buffet.

    I don't think I could eat that much, but I know I couldn't handle his workouts.

    Re: The Phelps diet

    My sophmore year of college I dated a distance swimmer at UF. Their workouts were insane, like three times a day if you count their dry work. Oh, and there was no getting rid of the chlorine, no matter how long the shower...

    Re: The Phelps diet

    I remember reading an article in the Omaha paper when the U.S. Swim Trials were in town and all of the food that swimmers consume, the restaurants were loving it.
