When your nickname on a massive show like Game of Thrones just so happens to be “The Mountain,” you had better get used to people expecting you to have a certain physique. Good thing Thor Björnsson seems to have zero problem with that.
The actor and World’s Strongest Man competitor obviously takes great care of his body not only in order to play Ser Gregor Clegane on the series, but also to participate in his intense competitions. And while that involves hardcore workouts, it also includes a crazy amount of daily food — more than seems humanly possible, actually.
Basically, this is one dude that would probably die grazing the way Jennifer Aniston does.
Björnsson posted his diet on Instagram recently, proving that being a 6-foot-9 dude who weighs in around 400 pounds really is a lot of work.

Let’s break this down, shall we?

But because that isn’t enough, he also relies on lots of water throughout the day and plenty of juice to “get more calories.” Oh, and in the middle of the night? Some raw eggs to pick himself up.
Holy, mountain man.
Basically, any one of this guy’s meals could be what some people eat in an entire day. No wonder he’s able to stay so… big.
The Viper never really stood a chance, did he?
