    It is not what they eat that is important, it is how they eat. Sumo wrestlers have a fairly balanced diet, but they have a particular eating schedule to maximize abdominal subcutaneous fat (fat below the skin, not around the organs). They train extremely hard for a number of hours under a restricted caloric intake. They then feast afterward. A typically post-training meal is anywhere from 5,000-8,000 calories. The meal is a balanced meal, 50/30/20 carb/protein/fat. They eat from all food groups and eat about 3-5 times the standard serving size.

    This eating style helps keep their legs strong and ripped, but adds all the mass to their mid-section where they need it.
