Anyone who has seen the TV series “Game of Thrones” already knows who I’m talking about. The strongest man in the world, who played the character of “The Mountain” in the series, is an Icelandic over two meters tall, weighing two hundred kilos, named Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson . For friends Thor.
In 2018 he won the WSM competition, the strongest man race in the world, and is champion for the European edition of the same competition and for the Arnold Strongman Classic.
In addition to his showdowns and his role on the HBO series, Björnsson has always been known for his extreme diet. In fact, he eats at least six large meals a day for a total of ten thousand calories.
And by contract he has to eat every two hours to maintain weight and strength. He also did this while filming the Game of Thrones series.
The diet of the strongest man in the world
Björnsson eats 300 grams of oats, sweet potatoes and potatoes, two ounces of rice and puffed cereals, fruit smoothies, protein powder and almonds, peanut butter, avocado, bananas, but also 15 eggs a day, spinach, a kilo of beef, half a kilo of chicken and half a kilo of fish a day.
His diet actually changes according to his preparations for competitions. But it cannot be said that you don’t eat a lot and that you don’t eat a lot of animal protein. So much so that the famous bodybuilder and athlete Kai Green, another mountain of muscles, has given him a challenge.
The strongest man in the world will try the vegan diet
Kai challenged Hafþór Björnsson on Instagram to try the vegan diet and see if he had any improvements or worsening in terms of strength. No sooner said than done. The Mountain would accept the challenge. He will try to do a vegan diet for a week, but he has specified that this experiment will be carried out in the off-competition periods.
