Hafór Jlus Björnsson, also known as The Mountain from the Game of Thrones, seems to have lost a lot of weight in the last couple of weeks. Last year in November, he retired from Iceland’s Strongest Man after ten years.
I was happy with everything I did in strongman. I won everything there is to win in the strength world, at least all the big titles. And I was just happy. That’s the thing guys, I was happy. I was happy that I was able to win all these shows but still be healthy, and I wanted to stay healthy.
Looks like Hafór Jlus Björnsson now a boxer and has lost more than 100 pounds ever since. In a recent video on Hafór’s YouTube channel, he said,
I’m extremely happy with my shape right now. When I started this journey, I weighed 205 kgs (451 pounds). And now I’m down to 155 kgs (341 pounds). Feeling good, feeling healthy.
According to Men’s Health magazine,
Björnsson eats four meals a day. with his breakfast consisting of three eggs and 200 grams chicken, as well as a smoothie made with 150 grams yogurt, 100 grams of berries, and 40 grams of oats. His least favorite meal is meal three: 220 grams of chicken, 250 grams of potatoes, and 100 grams of greens. I’m not a huge fan of chicken. But I have different goals now than I did when I was in strongman, so the diet is slightly different. It’s as clean as it gets. I’m never really hungry and I’m never really full throughout the day.
No wonder the brothers didn’t get along in the Game of Thrones!
