    NYT: Hafthor Julius Bjornsson eats eight meals a day, combining eggs with oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. His other meals consist of meats, grains, vegetables and fatty foods like avocados and peanut butter. A series of basic dead lifts, bench presses and squats in sets of three to five, using extreme amounts of weight, for two to four hours every day.

    You forgot the most important stuff - THE STEROIDS!
    This is the part I hate most - setting up unrealistic expectations, misleading them to believe that they can be as big as him by eating avocados, oatmeal and chicken.

    I'm pretty sure he would gladly list the drugs he uses if it they weren't illegal in the first place. He would probably be wearing a tank top from a big pharma sponsor boasting his favorite brand of testosterone. icon_lol.gif As an example of this, many celebrities don't hide all the plastic surgeries they've had and it makes me wonder why plastic surgery for aesthetic reasons is legal and prescribing steroids for the same purpose is not. Perhaps because the majority of people doing plastic surgery are still women (2014: 1,364,103 women vs 204,611 men) and in a sexist society it's ok for women to take risks for vanity but it's not ok for men to do the same.

    He looks kind of fat there.

    If i didn't know he was on roids, i wouldn't just assume he was from that picture.

    You and I have a very different idea of what 'fat' is.

    Honestly, how big can a person get without steroids? I mean, I sure want to have a better body but in NO WAY I'm willing to use chemical substances.

    It depends on that person's natural testosterone levels--we are not all created equal in that regard. Some people have extremely low testosterone, some people have triple the normal level.

    The problem is that even most "natural bodybuilders" have at some point prior to testing been not exactly natural, so it's difficult to say. But suffice it to say: if they're a fitness model or bigger, they've likely done SOMETHING that most of us would not consider doing.
