6000 calories per day diet secret behind Brit cyclist ’s glorious careerLondon: British cyclist Sir Chris Hoy, who won three gold medals at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, consumes up to 6,000 calories a day, starting with a breakfast of cereal, banana and honey, a fruit smoothie, orange juice, a protein shake and a coffee.

Hoy also drinks up to six litres of water a day, and trains for 25 to 35 hours a week.

A typical day for Hoy might include two hours in the gym, a one-hour recovery ride on the road, then three hours at the velodrome.

One of his gym exercises involves him pushing weights of 35 stones, which is two-and-a-half times his body weight with his legs.

Hoy has also been nicknamed Golden Thighs because of his 27in legs, and he hopes that might hopefully power him to yet another gold during the London Olympics.
