Athlete's diet: Eating like an Olympian


CNN’s Phil Han takes a look at what some athletes have to eat in order to stay ahead of the game.



  1. carbs really? michael phelps, most succesful olympian of all time! pay attention keto muppets.

  2. He swims four hour s a day. Thats intense training in the water. So training hard in water drops his body temperature hence he can consume such a collosal amount of calories without getting fat or loosing shape. The difference loes in training in the water and the drop of thermal temperature.

  3. That's disgusting! Damn this is why I can't be a runner and phelps is only a fucking swimmer ugly one at that lol 😛

  4. Just watched this vid and I feel stuffed.

  5. You should go to WooPep if you'd like to make diet better guys.

  6. I was told to eat high protein, fat, veggies and small portions of fruit… go figure.

  7. That is such bullshit. No one – not even the most hard working athletes – burns 10.000 calories a day. Only if you were to do an ultra marathon every day, you'd burn that amount and therefore have to eat that much. And no one can do that daily. It's also bullshit that you'd burn 1000-1500 calories pr hour of training. That would be super high intensity and no one, not even super athletes can keep that up(nor should they) for hours on a daily basis. An average of calories burned pr hour of training would more likely be 500-700. And for higher intensity, yes, you can hit like 700-1000 pr hour, but that would not be sustained for hours and hours. No one, burns or eats 10.000 calories a day as an athlete. Some people eat 10.000 calories a day, yes, but then we are talking morbidly obese binge eaters.
    An average for a normal athlete would most likely be around 3000-5000 calories depending on the sport, gender and body weight etc.
    This is the most ignorant and uninformed video I have seen in a long time pretending to present facts about nutrition.

  8. Diet Plan known as Fenoboci Diet Plan kept showing up here on a lot of youtube videos and I thought they were scams. However after my friend follow it, and finally lost crazy amounts of weight by using it without starving herself. I'm persuaded. Do not take my word for it, search for Fenoboci Diet Plan on the google search engine.
