http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2013/10/01/track-star-lolo-jones-eats-9000-calories-to-beef-up-for-bobsledding/ I'm really getting tired of the garbage media puts out about athlete's diets, Lolo jones is not eating 9,000 calories a day. I'm a 250 pound active weightlifter and I can barley get down between 6000 to 6500 calories a day. I know guys that are walking around 270 plus that can't even manage 8,000 calories in a day. If lolo was actually eating and drinking 9k calories a day she would not even have time to train, she would have to eat every 45 minutes in a 16 hour day to manage that. Also a female body could not even process that kind of calorie intake, she could exercise 24 hours in a day and not even come close to burning even half of what her supposed diet is. The only reason I'm griping is because articles like this mislead teens and people trying bulk up, your body can naturally handle so much even if you are and elite athlete. Calorie intake need varies from person to person but 9k is the amount of calories that 300 pound roided up pro bodybuilders take.
