Former World's Strongest man Eddie Hall says eating 20,000 calories in 24 hours was ‘worst day of his life’

It's no secret that if you want to build up muscle mass, you need to eat accordingly.
Now, the staggering diet of Eddie Hall - AKA the former World's Strongest Man - has been revealed as he consumed 20,000 calories in 24 hours.
To put that into context, it's recommended that men consume 2,500 calories a day, so that's over a week's worth of recommended food.
Hall, 35, paid the price too, and he admitted that the repercussions of eating so much in a day were bad - dubbing the event the 'worst day of my life.'
He said that prior to this day, he would regularly eat between 12,500 and 15,000 calories to bulk up, but he decided to go all out on one particular cheat day.
He told YouTuber Rob Moore: "There were days when it was a Sunday and you'd have a day of recovery and pile on the calories to help that recovery process - to help you train harder for the week coming.
"When I was in a big bulking season, I'd have litre of ice-cream after every single meal - and they were big meals. I'd have a full English breakfast, a litre of ice-cream; snacks in between; lunch would be half a kilo of steak, rice, pasta, vegetables... a litre of ice-cream.
"Then snacks up until dinner time, then a massive chicken curry, bolognese with a kilo of pasta - and then a litre of ice-cream. It was just a way of piling the calories on - not the healthiest."
Hall explained that on the day he consumed 20,000 calories, he added an extra 5,000 onto his usual 15,000 by eating a litre of double ice cream throughout the day.
"By the end of the day, this litre of double cream had gone and f*** me - it was the worst day of my f****** life. I spent the whole night s****ing myself, throwing up, s****ing through the eye of a needle," he added.
"Never again - I learnt my lesson. The human body can only take so much. I felt my limit that day."
However, he did admit that if someone was to offer him £100,000 to consume such a staggering amount of food in a day again, he would do it, as 'everyone's got their price'.
In case your memory needs refreshing, Hall was crowned the World's Strongest Man in 2017, and he was the UK's Strongest Man between 2011 and 2017.
