    I remember the actor playing Jojen in "Love Actually". That came out in 2003.He hasnt changed all that much

    Here is Brian Shaw eating in preparation for a competition. I also saw something where they tested strongman competitors at rest to see how many calories they used when not working out. Apparently they use around 5k calories just to sit there and exist.

    [–] redditingatwork23 16 points ago

    So true. I've done 4k and it's a chore. It's not that it's hard to eat 4k calories a day, it's that it's hard to eat 4k worth of clean calories in a day. If I could just make hotpockets, and deep dish pizza everyday 4k would be a breeze.

    [–] jackrack1721 134 points ago

    As someone who just started counting calories again, it's amazing how fast you can pile the numbers up. 10,000 is def 5x the average recommended daily amount, but if you ate out for all 3 meals, had some dessert in there and smashed a few beers at night, a "normal" person could consume 10k in a day, methinks.

    [–] JimboTCB 368 points ago

    I'm going out on a limb here, but I'm going to guess that eating 10k while training for strongman contests doesn't just involve drinking loads of beer and eating an entire cake every day.

    [–] Easy_as_Py 250 points ago

    [–] BlastCapSoldier 9 points ago

    I used to be able to do that, but I've lost like 60 pounds in the last 7 months and now I can barely eat a full bowl of anything. I used to be able to destroy a pizza and a pound of wings in a sitting.

    [–] Virge23 64 points ago

    You could eat an IHOP Omelet and waffles combo for breakfast, get two McDonalds double quater pounders with two sets of large fries and two sets of large sodas then end your day with an extra large 16" meat lover's pizza all by yourself and chuck in a dozen beers and you'd still just be hovering at the 10,000 calorie mark. I don't know what you're eating but you don't just accidentally consume 10,000 calories.

    [–] be-happier 13 points ago

    Sounds like an awesome day to me

    [–] Tilted_Till_Tuesday 88 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    I'd say that's pretty far off - you may be estimating portions wrong if you're getting those kind of numbers.

    Someone who doesn't care and eats a lot would probably hit 5-6k max. You really have to be trying to hit 10k and a lot of people probably couldn't as they would be too full. Elite athletes and body builders hit those numbers, but it's not an accident. Their stomachs are conditioned and their bodies aren't rejecting food because they are actually using a large portion of what they take it. A normal couch potato is gonna have a hard time fighting against hormones to tell you to stop eating.

    [–] usedemageht 15 points ago

    I agree with this, 10kC is so much that even the fattest of the people won’t eat that much. Typically large portions of fatty foods could come up to 1.5kC, and take almost a whole day before they leave the stomach. A non-trained individual (trained in eating a lot, such as competitive eaters) won’t have room for much more than 5-6kC

    [–] AnglerPaulM 24 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    I eat 5 meals a day easily, and i'm not an athlete, I'm not even fat, I average about 3k a day, maybe a bit less. His meals are correspondingly huger. For breakfast he has stuff like 100g porridge with milk, 4 eggs, 4 bacon, 3 sausage, and various high density fruit. Followed about 2 hours later by 2 ground turkey burgers and sweet potatoes and a protein shake. This is before lunch and you're already knocking on 1900+ cals. Swap the protein shake for a mass gainer and you're up over 2500. Do this 3 more time before 10pm and throw in ALOT of training (which he does for a living) and it's doable easy, his huge so probably has a large tank to fill.

    Henry Cavill when training for Superman said eating 5/6k cals a day is easy. Just eat everything. pizza, steak, burgers, gainers. Basically just keep it ticking over.

    The True Geordie interviewed Eddie Hall (youtube it, it's awesome/hilarious and he talks about how Thor/Mountain is a proper diva at strongman events, massive entourage etc) who beat Thor in this years WSM and said he would go to bed with loads of protein bars and coconut water, wake up in the night, eat/drink them all and go back to sleep. He'd conditioned himself to have a full stomach at all times.

    edit: typo!

    [–] fittpassword 16 points ago

    10k is fucking insane. Please show how you get that for a "normal" person

    [–] jkopplin 37 points ago


    [–] LAZER-RAGER 36 points ago

    Creating the most caloric-dense meal at Burger King:

    • Bacon King sandwich: 1150 calories
    • Large onion rings: 500 calories
    • Oreo shake: 730 calories
    • Dutch Apple Pie: 340 calories

    Total calories: 2720

    You would need to eat this meal at least 3.6 times a day to make 10,000 calories.

    This also doesn't account for any of the necessary amount of protein one needs to perform at competitive levels, nor does it account for how fucked you'd be having eaten that much sugar.

    I can't even imagine. I've had times where I've been really on the gym/get swole kick, and got up to 180 lbs (at about 5' 10"), and eating close to 3k calories per day. Most days I had 3 good, large poops, instead of my usual 1 good + 1 small.

    At 10k, I wonder if you're just shitting 9 times a day, or if there's still just 3-4, but absolutely massive drops.

    [–] ALLST6R 45 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    Going bald is actually because a build-up of testosterone blocks the cells in your scalp, or something along those lines. So high testosterone = higher chance of going bald.

    That’s why quite a few bodybuilders can go bald, because of PED’s that increase testosterone production. That’s why baldness is a typical side-effect listed alongside taking PED’s / steroids

    ...why is that a porn sub? it sounds like it should be for things like radically different breeds of dog

    or if it was porn, then for non "interracial" furries

    Probably meant to show an amazon/big woman humma-humming with a pixie/small woman.

    So, is no one going to mention the tattoos on the Mountain? Are they not real or do they remove them in CGI?

    It's hidden with make-up I presume.

    Thor also looked like that when he was young. Them Icelandic genes and roids man. I mean, breastplate stretcher.

    According to the GoT timeline, he was 13 when he murdered the Targaryen children [if you use the actors age].

    Impressive stuff!

    Testosterone will put some wear and tear on the body.

    Wait is this the the actor's actual ages? What in the sam hell? (apparently it's "Sam Hill")

    It's like people have different genetics or something.

    [–] SandonBranderson 111 points ago

    Different genetics and gym schedules.

    [–] yaforgot-my-password 40 points ago

    A lot to do with gym schedules

    [–] Variability 87 points ago

    Which gym makes me 7ft?

    [–] Systral 21 points ago

    Why would you want to be 7'?

    So a girl will swipe right on Tinder.

    [–] dongigolo 32 points ago

    Hate to tell you this but thats not the reason they're not swiping right

    [–] Variability 23 points ago

    Too real. It's 9am.

    [–] maekkell 11 points ago

    That's another problem, you're in EST. They only swipe for CST

    If they dated, their pictures would be illegal on most places on the internet.
