Sumo wrestlers eat up to 7,000 calories a day and weigh as much as 400 pounds.
Regular intense exercise prevents the build-up of visceral fat, which causes metabolic and cardiovascular disease.
Sumo wrestlers eat up to 7,000 calories a day and weigh 300 to 400 pounds or two to three times as much as the average adult.
While that may not sound like the healthiest lifestyle, you shouldn't judge a book, or a body, by its cover.
When sumo wrestlers retire, they have to seriously cut calories or they become at risk for cardiovascular disease.
That might explain why retired wrestlers reportedly die an estimated 10 years younger than the average Japanese citizen.
So while the thought of eating 7,000 calories a day might be appealing, you probably shouldn't. »
