Michael Phelps

I just had to comment on this since everyone else is.  Apparently Michael Phelps eats about 12,000 calories a day.  Not only that, but I heard it is mostly junk food, a lot of it, fast food.  This is a prime example of someone that looks at food as only calories and thinks it doesn’t matter what they eat as long as they are burning it off, which he is most definitely doing swimming five hours a day!  We must realize that food affects us on a cellular level.  It is this kind of eating that results in Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and much more in old age.  Unfortunately, most that are faced with one of these ailments don’t have any idea how they got it and are hoping that science will find them a cure.

  1. I just cringed when I saw him pouring Lucky Charms into a bowl in a little piece they did. Yikes! Talk about worst of the worst. Hopefully he'll realize soon what he is doing to his body. He is still young, and it is not too late. With all the money he'll be making from endorsements he could eat grass-fed steaks, artisan sourdough bread piled with organic butter, and the whole organic produce section every day to get his calorie requirement.
