What is the diet of a professional Football Player?

I was looking around ESPN and saw this post about the typical meal for a NFL player.  More specifically during the 2 a-days practice a typical offensive lineman needs to take in 7500 calories a day!

  • 975 grams of carbohydrates
  • 277 grams of protein
  • 275 grams of fat

Compared to the average guy which is 2200 calories a day, made up of:

  • 292 grams of carbohydrates
  • 93 grams of protein
  • 73 grams of fat

Interesting stuff, you can see the whole  video here:
