Crowned Europe's Strongest Man again last year, let's just say that Iceland's Hafthor Bjornsson eats a fair bit. Actually, let's not just say that. Let's say that he eats more in a day than you probably do in a week!



It's A Good Thing He Can Afford It!

It's A Good Thing He Can Afford It!

We don't know how much this guy gets paid for his role on Game of Thrones but we're hoping for his sake that it's quite a lot. Otherwise, how would he afford to keep up such a meal plan? Okay, let's take a look at what this dude eats...

Don't Try This At Home

Don't Try This At Home

I'm guessing we're all level-headed enough to not suddenly get so inspired about training that we go out and do some serious shopping in order to replicate The Mountain's diet. He assures us that he very steadily worked up to this, and let's be honest, most of us don't have the discipline to work off that amount of calories.
