A lot has been said about the Michael Phelps diet during the olympics. And how he can still maintain such a lean physique despite of the 12 000 calories. I don’t even think a normal Asian person could physically consume so much in a day. Unless you’re Takeru Kobayashi or something.
There are three reasons why Phelps could eat such massive amounts and still have superior physique.
1. He trains 5 hours a day. Even a fitness instructor like me only trains about 5 hours a week.
2. He took years to establish the incredible metabolic ability that he has which is like a freight engine, consuming calories at will.
3. He is young. Ten years later, I can guarantee you he won’t be eating like that.
So stop marveling at how a human being could eat so much and still maintain his well defined six pack. He is a freak of nature. Stick to your 2000 calories a day and like what I always tell all my clients, try to get some breakfast before you start your day.
