Right. Let's go to work."

"Michael Phelps, the greatest swimmer of all time, eats 12,000 calories a day. Eggs, mayonnaise and assorted fats make up a jaw-dropping proportion of his diet. How can he force it all down? And what is it doing to his body? With nothing to lose but his waistline, Jon Henley tries dining like an Olympic champion"
