Do not eat with The Mountain unless you want to puke. It’s just that simple.
In what has to be one of the most insane eating challenges on the Internet, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, aka The Mountain on Game of Thrones, attempts to eat 50,000 calories on his “cheat day” with two of his body builder pals, Gretar and Skúli, averaging 16,666 calories per person. For reference, it’s recommended the average person consume roughly 2,000 -2,500 calories a day. If you’re a body builder attempting to bulk up, depending on one’s size, ultimate weight goal, and desired physique, that number typically ranges anywhere from 3,000-5,000 calories.
Over the course of 10 hours of eating, chaos slowly ensues as these large men feel like they’re going to pop with all the unhealthy food they’ve consumed. Starting off on the healthier side with roughly 1,750 calories worth of beef and rice each, the threesome continued to eat pancakes, burgers, fries, chocolate milkshakes, Ben and Jerry’s, loaded large pizzas, wine bread, and somehow, even more food.
By the end of the day, Gretar had to tap out, missing the final meal of 12 donuts (each at 450 calories, totaling 2,700 a person), since he vomited far more than once. Skúli, while he finished the final meal, did proceed to vomit afterward… for a third time.
The Mountain, however, managed to make it through without puking a single time, successfully consuming roughly 17,000 calories.
