To be a hulking muscle-freak worthy of smashing skulls on Game of Thrones or winning the title of World's Strongest Man, you need to have a diet that would kill most other human beings. What Hafþór "Thor" Júlíus Björnsson, also known as Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane, eats on a daily basis to prepare for competition is absolutely bonkers, as he recently shared on Facebook.
He warns the rest of us puny humans not to try this, before listing his daily food intake.

It is not good to be an egg around Thor.
As BuzzFeed calculated, that's roughly 4,300 calories before noon, a caloric regiment that allows him to toss buckets in the air higher than anyone else.
To assuage your fear of The Mountain throwing a bucket at you, here he is with Asterix, his tiny little Pomeranian that is in all likelihood part of his diet.
