Ryan Lochte shows off Olympic-sized meal

United States swimming star Ryan Lochte is a very decorated Olympian. The proud owner of five gold medals, three silver and three bronze, Lochte is always putting in the hard work in the pool.

Part of the training regimen that goes in to being a world class swimmer is apparently stuffing your face with food.

We have seen big meals from athletes in the past, but Lochte takes things to a different level.

On Monday afternoon, Lochte shared a photo on Twitter that shows off a meal that would make our very own Jack Jorgensen, a known glutton for high calorie meals, proud.

Lochte’s meal is apparently 10,000 calories with nearly 30 spears of asparagus, a boatload of chicken and various other foods.

It is hard to imagine the average person being able to stuff this food down, but when you are constantly working out in the pool you need to load up on the calories.

Check out the meal below:

To those who would like to have a similar meal, don’t expect to be able to eat like and automatically get a physique like Lochte’s.
