For most people, downing two shakes and a double bacon cheeseburger every day would be a dream.
For Lolo Jones, it was part of her job.
The Olympic hurdler, who is now hoping to make the Winter Olympic team as a bobsledder, told USA Today that she's gained some 30 pounds during the past few months. She's done so by eating 9,000 calories a day on a diet which includes two 1,365-calorie protein shakes and a McDonald's double bacon cheeseburger.
Anyone else on the 9,000 calorie diet?

And it looks like she's thrown a donut or two into the mix:

Whereas in track the leaner the better, in bobsled the idea is "mass pushes mass." And Jones could not be more satisfied with her new weight.
"I'm the heaviest ever in my life," Jones said. "It took so much work. I'm three pounds away from my ultimate goal."
While Jones says she weighed in at about 135 pounds when she competed in the London Olympics last year, after coming away without a medal she became depressed let her weight slip into the 120s.
It wasn't easy to gain so much weight while also maintaing her figure, but leave it to a potential two-sport Olympic athlete to pull it off.
"I'm pumped about this muscle weight," Jones said. "My abs are still there. I'm still cut, just super solid."
