Game of Weight Loss

Love it or loathe it, Game of Thrones was one of the most popular and talked about shows of recent times.

The unique and controversial combination of themes, extreme gore, fantasy and interesting characters made it a win amongst fans.

One of the scariest figures was the aptly named, Gregor ‘the Mountain’ Clegane, a giant beast of a man that was literally crushing his enemies’ heads like eggshells in the show.

Thankfully, in real life, actor Hafthor Björnsson (AKA Thor) couldn’t be any more different to his on-screen persona!

Recently turned father, Thor has won the World’s Strongest Man competition and currently holds the world deadlift record of 501 kilograms!

The gentle giant, however, created shockwaves after announcing his retirement from Strong Man games and instead shifted his focus on being fitter and healthier so he can be there to enjoy life with his wife and newborn son!

The shockwaves continue to come as just weeks ago, Hafthor revealed how he lost a whopping 50kg!!! Going from 205kg to 155kg!

What do you think was the solution? Keto? Intermittent fasting? A machine that vibrates your fat away or cryotherapy? Of course not, you lazy bums (looking at you Sebastian)!

He’s worked mind-bogglingly and almost impossibly hard to achieve his goals!

Achieving outstanding results in anything in life requires determination and extreme willpower! Hafthor has previously said he would eat anything if it allowed him to get bigger and stronger to win his Strong Man games! In doing so, he won his titles but he also became a literal mountain of a man with a fair amount of body fat to go with it!

He has now directed that extreme focus on his new goal, to be in the best shape of his life and he’s achieved it!
