Ryan Lochte says he's putting away 10,000 calories a day, here's a taster

So much asparagus.

MULT-DISCIPLINED SWIMMERS need a whole lot of nutrition.

So with the US nationals fast approaching, last night Ryan Lochte tweeted this image ahead of the big meal that lay ahead of him.

What is it? Well, that’s definitely asparagus, lots of asparagus. And a big tub of fried chicken lots of fried chicken. The  far tray is most likely lasagna or macaroni and cheese or some other carb-rich wonderfulness. But we don’t have a clue what’s in the tub on the left.

Lochte says the whole lot is 10,000 calories – and he’s most likely prepped it to eat today – but he’s been known to be wrong before. And after Michael Phelps shattered our dreams of a 12k calorie day, we’re taking Lochte’s calculations with… erm, a pinch of salt.
