Sumo and Vegetarianism... lol..


Recommended Posts

well, being a bodybuilder must be as hard as being a sumo wrestler, because muscles consume a lot more calories than fat, so i don't think it would be so hard as we imagine.. ( ok, but still hard )... but not impossible for sure..

well, i barely know a thing about sumo, but it would be really cool if there was a vegan sumo wrestler out there.. he could have some advantages i believe? no? a health slightly better than ''regular'' sumo guys..

Found this on wikipedia:

 

"Rikishi are not normally allowed to eat breakfast and are expected to have a nap after a large lunch. The most common type of lunch served is the traditional "sumo meal" of chankonabe which consists of a simmering stew cooked at table which contains various fish, meat, and vegetables. It is usually eaten with rice and washed down with beer. This regimen of no breakfast followed by a large lunch helps rikishi put on weight so as to compete more effectively. A nap after lunch also assists in this process."
