But he still wants to clear up something about his diet. During a Q&A session at an event for Krave Jerky at Manhattan's Chelsea Piers, Phelps talked about his eating habits and mentioned the legendary "12,000-calorie diet" in scare quotes before going into what he meant:

"Don't believe everything you read. The stories were just ridiculous. I was probably eating anywhere between like 8 to 10 [thousand] probably at my peak where I was really growing. Still, it became a job."

Michael Phelps is going to race a shark. Seriously.

  Michael Phelps is going to race a shark. Seriously. When you've won 23 gold medal's there's really nothing left to do but race a shark. The Discovery Channel announced Friday that Olympian Michael Phelps will take on the dangerous animal during the network's very popular, Shark Week.There aren't many specifics yet, but here's the information from a release sent by Discovery:"They are one of the fastest and most efficient predators on the planet: Sharks. He is our greatest champion to ever get in the water: Michael Phelps. 39 world records. 23 Olympic golds. But he has one competition left to win.

He used the same diet and exercise plan, but this time he implemented intermittent cold exposure. This time he lost 29 pounds in only 6 weeks, for an average of 4.8 pounds of weekly fat-loss. Michael Phelps reveals his 12 , 000 - calorie diet was a myth , but he still ate so much food .

But his eating regimen is as closely monitored as is the speed at which he sails from end-to-end of the pool. Packing in about 10,000 to 12 , 000 calories a day, Phelps chows down on what most us would love to consider as ' diet ' food : fried egg sandwiches, pizza, and pasta.

This is a fantastic quote for a lot of reasons. First, it was myth-busting that he ate up to 12,000 calories a day.

But second, and it's hilarious, he was still eating anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 calories anyway!!!!!

That's still SO. MUCH. FOOD.

I did a little searching and found this breakdown on Active.com of what cyclists eat to ingest 8,000 calories. It included what that many calories looks like in a hypothetical diet:

22 eggs for breakfast

3 cereal bars

14 20 oz. bottles of sports drink

4 cups of rice

2 cups of granola with fruit

8 chicken breasts

4 bananas

That's how much you'd have to eat to get to 8,000. So although it turns out that Phelps didn't house 12,000 a day, he was still scarfing down tons.

Don’t expect Sixers, Celtics trade to be completed until draft day .
We may have to wait until the NBA Draft for this to become official.
