Do you live like a Sumo wrestler?

Did you know that the sumo diet is primarily a high carb, high protein diet, and is relatively low in fat? These hefty Japanese wrestlers take their diet very seriously, and it's not just what they eat, but also how and when they eat, that makes them put on the fat that they need for their sport.
... very high in carbohydrate by our standards 57 percent of calories and very low in fat 16 percent considerably beneath what most public-health authorities in America consider a feasible low-fat target.  Source.

Here is an article describing the sumo diet plan. Unfortunately, this is not that different from the lifestyle that many people follow in the developed world. Is it any wonder that so many people resemble sumo wrestlers?
