We all know it, Michael Phelps chows down on about 12,000 calories a day. This is fine for a champion athlete who burns all those calories off every day, but what about a humble guy who wants to try this feat themselves? Can SactoSmithers complete the Michael Phelps challenge?


The challenge: consume 12000 calories in a 24 hour period of time, just like Olympic champion Michael Phelps does during training. For those interested, my breakfast was 7 eggs, 6 slices of toast, and 11 pieces of bacon. Lunch was a Red Baron pizza (couldn't eat the whole thing) Dinner was chicken alfredo with garlic bread. Between meals, I had a protein shake and a Twix bar, to maximize calorie intake.
