​Hafthor 'The Mountain' Björnsson Shares Impressive Five Meals A Day He Eats To Prepare For Eddie Hall Fight

Hafthor 'The Mountain' Björnsson has revealed the staggering daily menu he sticks to ahead of his fight with Eddie Hall.

The former World's Strongest Man has lost 55kg (121lbs) over the last year and a half, as he gets lean to head into the ring.

In the run up to his fight, Björnsson currently eats the same five meals every day - and it will probably come as absolutely no surprise to you at all to learn that is a lot.

Speaking to Insider, Björnsson revealed that he kickstarts his day with two scrambled eggs, 200g of chicken, yogurt, 40g of oatmeal and 50g of blueberries.

His second meal is 230g of beef tenderloin with 140g of rice and 100g of green veggies, such as spinach or green beans.

Meal number three consists of 230g of chicken with 200g of either regular white potatoes or sweet potatoes and another 100g portion of green veggies.

His fourth meal is 230g of salmon with rice and 100g spinach.

He rounds off his mammoth day of eating with another yogurt, 30g of peanut butter and a scoop of protein powder.

Anyone else feel a bit tired after just reading all that?

But, while it seems like an awful lot of food to me, it's actually a pretty big drop in calories for Björnsson who used to eat eight meals a day - sometimes even getting up in the night to chow down.

He went on to say that he does allow himself a cheat meal once a week, but that he doesn't go too wild.

He told the publication: "You can't be a robot. We're all human, we all crave things."

He added: "My personal preference is to eat healthy six times a week, and then have one day off.

"You obviously don't go super crazy and eat like a maniac, but if you want a pizza, have a pizza."

Meanwhile, his opponent Hall has shown off his own impressive transformation after dropping 40kg (88lbs).

Speaking to Muscle & Health, Hall said: "When I won the World's Strongest Man I was almost 200kg.

"Right now I weigh about 158kg, so I'm 40 kilos or so down. I'm happy to fight 158kg, to be honest. I'll probably go in at this weight.

"My game plan is to combine power, speed, agility, and endurance and I've got all four attributes nailed down.

"I can do ten three-minute rounds quite comfortably.

"I think the third round will be the end for him. That's what I'm aiming for."

The much-anticipated boxing match between Björnsson and Hall was originally scheduled for this month, but was postponed after Hall detached his bicep while training. The fight is now expected to take place next year.
