Diet Tips From Sumo Wrestlers

Eat like a sumo wrestler, look like a sumo wrestler!

Almost everyone in the world is constantly trying to lose weight, except for sumo wrestlers. Their goal is to gain as much weight as possible and to keep it on. By studying the diet of a sumo wrestler, if someone truly wants to lose weight they should do the exact opposite of what the sumo wrestlers do.

How to train like a Sumo Wrestler, tips from the Takasago Sumo stable, sumo training facility in Japan:

Step 1: Skip breakfast
According to Dr. Wayne Callaway, obesity specialist at George Washington University, skipping breakfast can not only trigger overeating later in the day but can also cause a drop in metabolism. Be sure to not eat anything in the morning so you can slow your metabolism as much as possible, eating anything in the morning will boost your metabolism causing you to LOSE weight, which you definitely don't want to do.

Step 2: Drink high calorie drinks with your meals
Drinking high calorie drinks with no nutritional value allows you to consume many more calories throughout the day because your body doesn't register the calories as fast when you are consuming them together. Be sure to drink your Big Gulp WITH your Happy Meal for maximum calorie intake.

Step 3: Move as little as possible after you eat!
Movement burns calories and you really don't want to do that if you are trying to gain weight. So after you eat a large meal, be sure to sit on the couch, kick your feet up and move as little as possible, or you can even go take a nap (think Thanksgiving every day).

Step 4: Eat while watching T.V.
Eating while watching T.V. or using the computer is called brainless eating. It allows you to eat more food before your body tells you that you are full. So be sure eat potato chips while watching T.V., and always eat meals at your desk to gain as much weight as you can.

Step 5: Eat only two meals everyday!
By eating only two meals a day and skipping breakfast, it will help slow your metabolism as much as possible. Avoid healthy snacks during the day. Eating two large meals a day helps your body store all the food you eat as fat. Be sure not to eat every few hours, as this could boost your metabolism and cause you to lose weight.

If you are training to be a sumo wrestler and want to gain as much weight as possible, remember to follow the action steps above! If you are actually trying to lose weight, be sure to do the exact opposite of what Sumo wrestlers do!
