Hafthor Bjornsson is preparing for his next competition and is taking in a crazy amount of food.

Hafthor Bjornsson is officially back in the Strongman game and looking to dominate. He is currently preparing to compete at the 2024 Strongest Man On Earth in August and this means a loaded diet plan. Recently, he shared his full day of eating that consists of over 11,000 calories.

In 2018, Bjornsson broke the elephant bar deadlift world record and pulled 1,041 pounds. The very next year, he set a new mark at 1,046 pounds. He did not quite reach this mark over the weekend but he showed that he is back and will be a force in Strongman moving forward.

Bjornsson continues to eye different world records. He recently set an unofficial keg toss record during training.

Bjornsson decided to go 500 grams heavier than the record. The height of the bar he looked to throw the keg over was set at 8 meters, just over the official word record. With his mindset to the task, Hafthor Bjornsson hefted the 15.5 kg keg over the bar to set an unofficial world record.

Hafthor Bjornsson’s Full Day Of Eating

Hafthor Bjornsson shared his full day of eating and it consisted of six meals. He was able to squeeze a total of 11,547 calories, 1,393 grams of carbs, 391 grams of fat, and 586 grams of protein within these meals.

Meal 1

The first meal of the day was breakfast with an addition of rice, which Bjornsson likes to spice up so it’s not dry. It is the first of six meals that the Strongman will use to bulk up.

  • 200g Skyr
  • 100g blueberries
  • 100g strawberries
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 563g rice
  • 245g orange juice

“I am bulking so if I go slightly over what I plan on eating, I don’t care. I want to get heavier so that’s the main goal.”

Meal 2

The next meal was slightly larger than the first and he added steak, prepared by his father. Bjornsson credited his dad and his ability to cook meals he enjoys to eat. Unlike most, Bjornsson shared that he doesn’t eat his meals warm.

  • 200g Skyr
  • Half avocado
  • 125g steak
  • 500g rice
  • 100g mixed vegetables
  • 500mg milk
  • 245g orange juice

“The meat cooked perfectly, just medium rare. Fun face guys, I eat my meals cold.”

Meal 3

The third meal of the day is a replica of the first for Bjornsson.

  • 200g Skyr
  • Half avocado
  • 125g steak
  • 500g rice
  • 100g mixed vegetables
  • 500mg milk
  • 245g orange juice

“Here, we have the same as for meal number two.”

Meal 4

Hafthor Bjornsson continues the trend in meal four but left out the avocado this time around. He continues to add Skyr and orange juice to add some extra calories.

  • 200g Skyr
  • 125g steak
  • 500g rice
  • 100g mixed vegetables
  • 500mg milk
  • 245g orange juice

“So far, how am I feeling? Actually, I’m feeling great. I’m feeling absolutely amazing. Not uncomfortable, you know. Just the normal. I’m used to eating this.”

Meal 5

The fifth meal of the day is an easy one.

  • Whole pepperoni pizza

“I’m going to finish the whole thing and this, we’re estimating this to be around 3,500 calories, maybe more or less.”

Meal 6

The final meal of the day is another simple one and Bjornsson ate a little later than he usually does.

  • 500g rice
  • 2 cans sardines

“Last meal guys. It’s actually 9pm right not, a little later than usual.”
