Breakfast of Champions

Think you eat a hearty breakfast? How does your morning meal compare to an Olympians? Here's what gold-medal swimmer Michael Phelps eats on an average morning:

"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."

He will consume a total of 12,000 calories by the end of the day - almost 5 times what the average man eats. You can read the rest of his daily diet here.
