Yesterday was my mowing day, so I had a hearty breakfast before taking on our beast of a lawn. I ate at Uncle Andy's in South Portland because I was curious about the changes after the Food Network "Restaurant Impossible" make over. This is a Lobstermen Omelet and it provided me with plenty of energy to fuel my efforts. Want to know what real athletes eat before they compete? Take a look!

  • Charles Barkley, NBA: two McDonald's filet-o-fish sandwiches, large fries, and a Diet Coke.

  • Wade Boggs, MLB: a whole chicken
  • Peyton Manning, NFL: pasta, two chicken breasts, baked potato, broccoli, Gatorade
  • Landon Donovan, soccer: apple,strawberry, banana, blueberry, orange and kale smoothie
  • Lebron James, NBA: chicken, vegetables and rice
  • Ed "Cookie" Jarvis, competitive eater: two boiled cabbages and two gallons of water
  •  When Captain runs a marathon he carbo-loads the night before with pasta, and the day of the race he has a big egg and bacon breakfast.
