Of course, Game of Thrones actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson aka “The Mountain” eats thousands of calories a day, as seen on a post he did online. Most people, including myself, think that it is crazy. If you would ask me, I would say that describing his diet plan as I-N-S-A-N-E is an understatement. That’s way too many calories and takes also a mountain of discipline to burn them off.
So, in this article, I won’t encourage you to mimic his diet. Rather, we’ll focus on the 2 ABC’s he has all throughout his meal plan. Ready?
Almond – Blueberries – Chicken
They say these nuts are high in fat. But that’s okay. A substantial percentage of fats from almonds are monounsaturated and are good to promote weight loss, especially stubborn fats in the belly area.
Almonds are also good for the heart, lower bad cholesterol and of course, taste great!
These indigo-colored fruits are high in antioxidants, which are good for detox. They are also infused with Vitamin C and dietary fiber. Sounds like body cleansing and immunity boosting to me.
No wonder why this made his list. Chicken is a very potent source of protein and has helped a lot of people trying to manage their weights. It is very nutritious and scrumptious to eat. I don’t think I need to say more. (Chicken is my favorite!)
Avocado – Banana – Casein Protein
Not only that it is yummy, avocado has a lot of benefits.
Like almonds, avocado contains monounsaturated fat making it healthy and is a good weapon against bad cholesterols. This fruit is also good for weight management.
This contains a lot for a fruit, well a berry. Yes, banana is a berry hanging on its tree. With bananas, you’ll get, at a minimum, potassium, fiber and Vitamin C.
If there’s whey protein, there is also casein. They’re cousins (chuckle).Our bodies digest casein protein slowly, which may take a few hours. Thus, it is sustained in the body longer.
So there go the back-to-back ABCs in the Mountain’s diet. Going through each one makes me understand why these foods make it to his meal plan. Maybe we should start including these on our own, too – just not that many calories, all right?
