Hafthor Julius Bjornsson’s Diet: The Mountain [Game of Thrones]

by Charlie Romano on June 14, 2014

Playing the role of a character named “The Mountain” should signify bulking; however, luckily for the casting team for Game of Thrones, Hafthor Julius Bjornsson was already fueling his body like a beast.

As a Strongman competitor, Hafthor Julius Bjornsson is already knowledgeable when it comes to dieting build mass and strength. Paired with award winning nutritionist Farthjálfun Valgeirs Gauta, this is a recipe for nutritional mastery.

For Hafthor, Farthjálfun Valgeirs Gauta developed a diet plan that was contructed to ensure that The Mountain consumed all necessary nutrients to maximize his size and power. As you can imagine, this includes a heavy emphasis on protein to fuel Hafthor’s muscle gains.

    dude he eats much more; a quote from his AmA on reddit:

    “I consume around 10.000 calories pr. day. It varies a lot, though, depending on whether I am working as an actor or to compete in the Worlds Strongest man or the likes.
    Cardio = Sex and from moving HEAVY weights at the gym”

    don’t make stuff up please

    Sounds very similar to the Rock’s “Hercules” diet plan
