The Mountain consumes more calories in a day than we considered humanly possible.



For all the “Game of Throne” fans, it’s impossible to forget The Mountain—gouging out the eyes of the beloved Oberyn Martell has cemented him in the memories of ‘GOT’ viewers forever.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, the actor who plays Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane, has an equally unforgettable diet.

In response to curious fans, Björnsson decided to share his eating and workout regimen on Instagram and Facebook, and the results are staggering.

According to calculations by BuzzFeed, Björnsson consumes about 10,000 calories a day—five times the average of a normal human male.

Björnsson is getting ready to compete in the World’s Strongest Man competition, which is why he has to be even more disciplined than usual with his diet and exercise.



Here is an entire day’s worth of food Björnsson posted:
