*shrug* You know your own body better than I do, obviously. But I can guarantee that there are successful track and field athletes out there who eat junk.

Most of the pros are required to stick to a strict diet. However under that level yes people do eat junk and some are successful but I am just saying not before a workout.

It does 100% depend on the person though and some people can get away with it so I am not trying to say your completely wrong. Did not mean for it to come out like that.

Here’s Phelps’s typical menu. (No, he doesn’t choose among these options. He eats them all, according to the Post.)

Breakfast: Three fried-egg sandwiches loaded with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise. Two cups of coffee. One five-egg omelet. One bowl of grits. Three slices of French toast topped with powdered sugar. Three chocolate-chip pancakes.

Lunch: One pound of enriched pasta. Two large ham and cheese sandwiches with mayo on white bread. Energy drinks packing 1,000 calories.

Dinner: One pound of pasta. An entire pizza. More energy drinks.

Or how about this one: http://www.consumerfreedom.com/news_...-and-willpower (wfs)

A fit and trim 36-year-old marathon runner will have consumed 30 days' worth of fast-food—from breakfast through dinner—by the time the starter gun sounds at Sunday's Los Angeles Marathon. Whether it's his intention or not, Joe D'Amico is effectively countering food scolds' incessant claims that fast-food is to blame for America's obesity epidemic by fueling himself with plenty of it.

I remember watching a show that featured a pro basketball player who ate a diet almost entirely of candy.

Derrick Rose eats a ton of candy and drinks a ton of Mountain Dew too. Then again these guys train a whole heck of a lot more than us normal folks.
