There’s only one man in the world who can claim to be the strongest, and Brian Shaw is that man. The 2016 World’s Strongest Man was on Super Training Productions and showed what the world’s strongest diet looks like, as he usually chows down on 7 meals a day, totaling over 12,000 calories.
As you can imagine, his diet is different than a normal man’s diet. Hell, it’s leaps and bounds different than The Rock’s diet, and The Rock is a beast in his own right. As has been documented in the past, The Rock’s typical diet will have him consuming about 5,165 calories a day. Shaw literally eats more than twice as much as The Rock.
The 423-pound, 35-year-old, out of Fort Lupton Colorado has a dietitian who tells him to grub on bowls of Cinnamon Toast Crunch for breakfast, and cheesecake before bed. That sounds like a diet we can all get behind, everything he eats in between is a little more health conscious.
While dieters often get specific about what times they eat their meals, Shaw was running behind on this particular day and had to squeeze in all seven meals in 13 hours.
It also seems like Shaw isn’t too worried about being specific about every single calorie, carb or gram of protein, and he just ballpark’s it at times.
If you thought cutting out food for a diet was hard, having to add 10,000 calories of food to the recommended daily intake might be even harder.
Check out the breakdown of Shaw’s day below, as his job is to literally eat all day:
Breakfast: 1st Meal
– Bowl of Cereal- Cinnamon Toast Crunch
– 8 eggs
– Tablespoon of peanut butter
Snack: 2nd Meal
– Protein shake, about 80g of protein
– 2 granola bars
– Tablespoon of peanut butter.
Lunch, 3rd Meal: Spaghetti
– 1 lb Organic, grass-fed beef
– Angel Hair pasta
– Pasta sauce
Snack: 4th Meal
– 80g of protein shake, with 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk, cup of blueberries -1tablespoon of peanut butter
Lunch 2.0: 5th Meal
– 1 lb of 93% lean ground turkey
– Uncle Ben’s Jasmine Ready Rice, 8.5 ounces
– 1 bag of Steamfresh brocolli
– Salsa- unmeasured
Dinner, 6th Meal: Pasta, Pasta, Pasta
For dinner, Shaw said he usually eats another pound of beef, potatoes and asparagus, but since he had a big day of training ahead, he changed it up a bit, going with a carb-heavy, pasta meal. Shaw went to an Italian restaurant, and didn’t really go into detail of his meal, but he did say it was a total of about 3,400 calories. From his plates, you can see a huge plate of spaghetti, about four breadsticks, what looks like tortellini, meatballs, and a huge glass of soda.
He doesn’t seem too worried about his macronutrients here, he just knew he had to go heavy on the carbs.
Pre-bed Snack: 7th Meal
– 80g whey protein
– 4 slices of cheesecake
