Olympic Junky?

I am not sure about you, but we have been watching the Olympics every night. I usually am not so interested, but this year I cannot get enough! I have enjoyed the swimming, volleyball and gymnastics so far.  Ezekiel has enjoyed it too. He keeps saying "swim, swim" or "run, jump, flip".

For those of you who have been following, here is what Michael Phelps eats each day, amazing!

"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.

That's 12,000 calories a day--six times what the average man should have."

So, I read what he eats with my mouth wide open. I truly cannot imagine eating all of that in one day!!!! Kind of nice to see such normal stuff in there.
