'Popeye' Who Injects Oil Into Biceps Is Now On Cat Food Diet

Everyone's favourite oil-injecting, weight-lifting Russian is back in the news again, this time for his interesting new diet.


Kirill Tereshin, who hit headlines last year after admitting to injecting a homemade concoction called synthol into his biceps to look bigger, is now on a cat food diet to help him bulk up. Fair enough.

Kirill, from Pyatigorsk in Russia, has an impressive following on social media after sharing photos and videos of his ridiculously pumped up muscles.

He told his followers he has taken to eating cat food as it's 'better than protein', whatever that means, and will be chowing down on the kitty food six times a day.

I've got a feeling our friend here may be barking up the wrong tree, because I have two cats who eat literally nothing but cat food and they are tiny.


In his latest video he says: "So guys, I went on a monthly diet again. I will eat cat food in small portions six times a day for a whole month.

"I have a cat here. My baby. Well, let's eat with her. We understand each other."

I'm not even going to warn you not to try this at home, because I know you're not that stupid. However, as far as stupid ideas go, eating cat food is pretty low on Kirill's list, isn't it?

Doctors have repeatedly warned the wannabe body-builder of the dangers of injecting himself with synthol is extremely dangerous and that he is leaving himself at risk of infections, nerve damage, ulcers or even life-threatening strokes or embolisms. Lovely.

But Kirill was undeterred and injected his arms until they measured a whopping 60-centimetre (24-inch) and in the latest video they look like they could be even bigger, but the show ain't over yet and Kirill could be heard asking 'should I increase it 10cm more?' For the love of God, Kirill.

Not content with massive arms, the Russian also splashed out on silicone implants for his calves and very natural they look, too...

According to local media, doctors would only agree to carry out the calf surgery if he promised to stop injecting his legs with synthol.

Whether he has or not, we don't know, but he certainly appears to still be injecting into his arms at the very least and has vowed to break body-building records, which he seemingly thinks will be helped by eating cat food.

Bon appetit, mate.
