Ugh. I can barely choke down two eggs in the morning. That seems like a chore.

I thought they mostly ate ambrosia.

FTFA: Could I eat like this, too?

You already do. It's why you haven't been able to see your shoes (or penis) since the late 1980s.

Man, it'll be interesting to see Olympians do Nathan's hot dog contests.

I thought the whole issue with Michael Phelps was that he kind of IS a stoned slob.

You'd be surprised. I'm not an athlete by any means, but I haven't worked out in a couple of months due to illness/travel/wisdom teeth, and the amount of food I eat has more than halved.

Yesterday I barely get through a small ham sandwich and a couple of plums for lunch. Three months ago lunch would be something like 3 chicken drumsticks, half a sweet potato with butter and brown sugar, some carrots, a couple of apples, and a thing of greek yogurt. And I'd still be hungry for a snack before dinner.

Olympians have a stoner diet?

Me too!!!!

Yeah during rugby season I am much the same. It's the off season now, and WAY too hot to try to bike the 6 miles into work (the hills make me disgusting by the time I get in), so I have seriously reduced my diet and not really gained any weight, thank goodness. Bf reliably runs 3 times a week, between 6-12 miles each run, and he routinely eats 3 dinners and is about 6' tall, 175 lbs.

I once saw an article that pictured what a Tour de France racer eats in one day. I eat that much in a week!

I do eight to ten tri-athalons a year on top of the six major marathons. I am constantly in motion, so I have to consume as many calories as I possibly can. Right now I'm running on the treadmill and drinking egg nog by the gallon. Tonight for dinner I'm having six extra-large double stuffed Domino's pizzas. All that and it still won't be enough. And the strangest part is, I only defecate once every two days, just this one little, scentless marble. I feel like a machine.

At the height of my hockey playing two private lessons, three practices, two team exercise meets, one or two games, a pick-up game, and at least three exercising sessions at home a week, I was routinely eating grilled cheese, plates of french fries, half a fast food pizza, and more for snacks alongside large breakfasts and dinners. Just could not keep the energy levels on healthier foods alone.
 
2012-07-27 02:40:07 PM
I'm really glad to be done with my marathon training but I do miss being able to eat like beast without packing on the poundage. Maybe I'll do it again next year, or maybe I'll just get fat (again).

Sounds like a few more ingredients, and you've got a stew going.

It's because they do this thing called, "exercise."

I used to eat whatever I wanted (lots of fast food, mexican food, lots of beer) and work out a lot (1 1/2-2 1/2 hours 5-7 days/week) and was able to stay in pretty good shape. I ended up getting high cholesterol, though, so I've cut out A LOT of fatty stuff and cut way down on a lot of things, including chicken, turkey, and carbs. Can't seem to shake cheese, though.

When you're exerting a lot of energy, you gotta eat a lot. 4000 calories ain't just a salad and an apple.

Lovelovelove eating whatever I want in season.

An entire pizza and a six pack of beer? Sure, as long as I can have cupcakes for dessert!

Just make sure you hum the Bugler's Dream while slathering your biscuits, sausage and hashbrowns with country gravy and you'll be set.

Consuming all those eggs described in TFA can produce enough gas to reignite Mount Olympus. Or an Olympic-sized shart.

Since this is the most recent Olympics thread, those looking for a live feed for the Opening Ceremony, I've scrounged up Telesur, but I don't speak Spanish and though they're talking Olympics now, I don't know for sure whether they'll be carrying the ceremony there. I couldn't find any English-language live streams due to region blocking.
 
2012-07-27 03:40:18 PM
Hmm... I know a lot of competitive cyclists... two of them that race at the open/pro level in XC mountain biking, and they're quite obsessive about what they eat. You don't have to scarf candy bars to eat calorically dense. Clearly it works for some people, but putting olympic cyclists in that group I know is wrong. I don't know about any of the other sports.

You'd be surprised what your body will tolerate when your reserves are low. After my first marathon I could have easily eaten a dozen donuts and the cardboard box they came in.

Have a look at the non-professional athletes finishing an Ironman race: - they're torn between wanting to devour all the food in front of them, and being too damn tired to even chew.

WTF is this shiat with the opening ceremonies? Where are the zombies and starving Indian kids Danny Boyle? Where?
 
2012-07-27 04:17:49 PM
I lost a ton of weight last year - primarily through diet though I do exercise several times a week. After I lost it I was finding that I would get completely lethargic in the middle of a treadmill session. My bro in law said, 'welcome to the world of the skinny man - once you've burned off all the excess fuel you have to replace it right before or while you're exercising if you want to keep going.' Sure enough I started bringing an energy bar to the gym and I have energy to spare. The more you know I guess.
