Olympic-sized Diets

There is discussion in the media section about the number of calories Olympians (namely Michael Phelps) need each day. GolfGirl said she wouldn't know how to eat that many calories each day, but that it would include pancakes.

So, if you were required to eat 8,000-10,000 calories every day, what would you eat?

Personally, there would be incredible amounts of pasta and breakfast food in my diet.
