That Michael Phelps eats something like 10,000 calories in a day in old news. (Not that we’re bitter.) But what about everyone else? YumSugar brings us a slideshow full of Olympians and their Olympic eats.

(Stages at both Daniel and Noma sit proudly on his resume.) Our secret to whisking like an Olympian though, if you wanted to know, is some serious carbo-loading and a cookie or two. It does the trick every time.
