Sumo wrestlers are not divided by weight class. In order to win, sumo wrestlers must use both intense training and copious eating habits. The heavier the wrestler is, the better. A sumo wrestler will eat about 8,000 kilcalories a day. In order to increase fat, sumo wrestlers do NOT eat breakfast. This slows down their metabolism and promotes weight gain.
