Former World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall revealed a staggering 7,000 calorie-a-day diet ahead of his boxing clash with fellow strongman Hafthor Bjornsson.
Hall, the crowned winner of the 2017 prize, will face 2018 champion and Game of Thrones actor Bjornsson in March, after their previous heavyweight-bout was called off due to the Englishman’s injury.
The 33-year-old – nicknamed The Beast – remarkably dropped from 196kg in 2017 to 152kg, all while ploughing through 7,000 calories worth of food and drink.
And he revealed ahead of the initial fight in September that his extraordinary diet and weight transformation was down to “planning, consistency and effort.”
He said: “Because of my size and the intensity of my training programme, I have to eat a lot.
"I currently consume about 7,000 calories a day, containing a variety of protein, carbs and vegetables.
"It’s not only time consuming to eat so much, it also takes a lot of forward planning, consistency, and effort."
Hall revealed he ate a whopping six meals-a-day to reach his 7,000 calorie target, which is three times the recommended amount for an adult male.

He also stated that he used a vegan gummy from start-up company Nourished containing 21 vitamins and nutrients as one of his special ingredients.
Hall said: "It’s important I keep up my energy levels and focus and that my muscles recover quickly, which supplements can really help with.
“Due to my size and the level at which I’m training, I also need to take more vitamins and supplements than the average person – so it was crucial I found a more effective and convenient solution than popping loads of pills each day.”
His preparation for the fight includes gruelling cardio sessions on a daily basis, swimming, boxing training and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) sessions.
