On Man Vs. Food, how is Adam Richman able to eat that much food and stay healthy? I have seen him eat an omelette with a dozen eggs.

The 37-year-old host of the Travel Channel series, who challenges huge meals, often with a time limit, has a few tricks up his sleeve to keep from gaining weight. A biggie is the fact that each episode is filmed over several days, so he gets a break in between. Also, he eats healthy when the show is not taping.

"From the show, when we come off the road, all of us go completely vegetarian from the time we get home," he says. Richman also works out in the off-season with a personal trainer.
