You want a "mountain" body? You better eat b**ch.
At least that's what "Game of Thrones" actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (he goes by Thor for short) does to achieve his massive frame. Björnsson, who is currently in competition to be the World’s Strongest Man, plays Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane, a now Frankenstein-like monster with a penchant for violence and the ability to "take the head off a horse with a single swing of his sword."
Horse decapitations aren't for the weak-bodied apparently, because Björnsson has to consume an insane amount of food to keep himself in shape. The Icelandic strongman shared his daily diet on social media to satiate fans' curiosities about what it takes to be the "Mountain."
*Spoiler alert* he eats a s**t ton of eggs
