THE MOUNTAIN FROM HBO’s Game of Thrones — or Hafthor Bjornsson to his mammy — is, for want of a technical term, a beast of a man.

Weighing in a 400lbs, Björnsson is a regular competitor in the World’s Strongest Man tournament and has finished in the top-10 every year since 2011.

As he prepares for this year’s competition Iceland native took to Facebook to share his daily meal plan.

It is almost beyond comprehension.
