How to eat like a sumo wrestler


If you want to become obese like a sumo wrestler you may want to eat a lot of carbs, like they do. And by a lot of carbs, we mean a thousand grams per day… or ten bowls of rice at every meal.

At least if you judge by this study on what sumo wrestlers eat, as illustrated above by Dr. Ted Naiman.

The sumo wrestlers are basically on an extremely low-fat diet. Why do they eat mostly carbs, instead of fat? Perhaps because carbs stimulate insulin, the fat-storing hormone, so that they can increase their body fat.

If you do not want to look like a sumo wrestler, you may want to go more easy on the carbs.
