This has nothing to do with the movie...

...but it's pretty crazy. American Swimmer Phelps' diet plan

Phelps lends a new spin to the phrase "Breakfast of Champions" by starting off his day by eating 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.

At lunch, Phelps gobbles up a pound of enriched pasta and two large ham and cheese sandwiches slathered with mayo on white bread - capping off the meal by chugging about 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks.

For dinner, Phelps really loads up on the carbs - what he needs to give him plenty of energy for his five-hours-a-day, six-days-a-week regimen - with a pound of pasta and an entire pizza.

He washes all that down with another 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks.

If you've ever crossed paths with anyone who has swam competitively then this would come as no surprise, especially since he has to swim so often and at such a high level during the Olympics. He needs all those carbs for all that insane energy he's expending!!

I just wish I could get away with that type of diet :P

...If I ate half of that in one sitting I'd explode!
