Inside the 8,000-calorie daily diet of Game of Thrones' 'The Mountain' actor and the world's strongest man that consists of 'a ton of fucking electrolytes,' four steaks and 5 POUNDS of rice

Hafthor Bjornsson, better known as ‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones, has revealed how he maintains his ultra-muscled physique, and that includes eating four steaks and 5 pounds of rice a day.

The 35-year-old former World’s Strongest Man, who played a devastating character in the hit television series, consumes three meals and three snacks a day, which adds up to 8,000 calories.

The Iceland native said they are vital to maintaining his Herculean frame, as the 6-foot-9 strongman weighs 423 pounds.

While his caloric intake is far from the recommended 2,000 calories a day for women and 2,500 a day for men, it is down from the 10,000 calories a day he consumed in 2018, when he took home the title of World’s Strongest Man.

The graph above shows what Hafthor Bjornsson devours in a single day, which includes four steaks and five pounds of rice.

Bjornsson’s diet is part of his training regimen for the 2024 Arnold Strongman Classic competition, which he won three times between 2018 and 2020.

In the competition, to be held next month in Columbus, Ohio, men carry bolted beams up an inclined ramp, carry heavy concrete objects onto a four-foot-high bar and lift a stone weighing 410 pounds. up to his shoulders.

Talking about how he consumes so many calories every day, he said: ‘What helps is that when I eat, I treat it like it’s my job.

“I stay away from the phone… By doing so, I eat my food faster.”

People who eat faster are more likely to eat more, doctors say, because there is a delay of about 20 minutes between the stomach filling and the brain sending signals to stop eating.

Revealing your daily meal plan in a Youtube videoBjornsson said she starts each morning with three eggs, 1 pound of cooked rice, half a cup of strawberries and two cups of milk.

Also drink a smoothie that consists of a cup of orange juice, almost a cup of Skyr yogurt, and half a cup of blueberries.

Then it’s back to the kitchen for a “snack” of a 4-ounce steak, almost two more cups of rice, half a cup of vegetables, and an avocado.

It also has a lot of water and electrolytes, which come from products like Reign Total Body Fuel. The product contains 300 milligrams of caffeine and vital vitamins.

Bjornsson says these are crucial to ensuring your muscles don’t cramp and that there are enough nutrients in your body.

After each meal, he makes sure to do at least 10 minutes of light exercise and a cold bath, as this helps with his digestion.

But Bjornsson doesn’t stop there. He then has another “snack” of two cups of milk and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

He also eats banana slices.

For dinner, consume another 1,369 calories, consisting of a pound of rice, a 5-ounce steak, and a half-cup of beans.

Just before bed, he fits in one more snack: another 4-ounce steak, a pound of rice, and a half cup of vegetables, plus half an avocado.

After his day of eating, Mr. Bjornsson said, “I feel satisfied and full.”

He added that his extensive menus are prepared by his father Bjorn Reynisson.

The strongman suffered a serious injury in April last year after tearing his pectoral (chest) muscles while attempting to set a new personal best in the bench press.
