Are you eating like a sumo wrestler?

February 26, 2017

I bet you thought that sumo-wrestlers eat and eat and eat all day long…and that is how they gain those pounds to show off those fabulous fighting “uniforms.” On the contrary…what they do is they eat very small, low-calorie meals throughout the day while they train and then they eat a huge meal with most…
