It’s hard work bring a sumo wrestler. The amount of food alone is a daunting task.
An online video shows world sumo champion Byamba Ulambayar – who consumes 10,000 calories a day to keep his 6-foot-1 360 pound figure – preparing a typical meal. The video was produced by MUNCHIES, which is making a new series about the diets of high performance athletes.

The video follows Byamba as he makes chankonabe – a stew with fish broth, meat, tofu, eggs and vegetables.

The 29-year-old was in the U.S. conducting a three-day training workshop for American sumo wrestlers in Van Nuys Calif.

The Mongolian born athlete, who moved to Japan as a child, explains that his enormous diet is still about nutrition.

“If you want to be a sumo wrestler you have to be able to practice, you know? And then after that the body is going to be tired, right? And then it has to eat healthy and take a lot of portions,” he said.

But sumo wrestlers needs balance in the body, he said.
