I talked to a fellow Strongman today wont say his name but I have watched him Pull 780lbs, Squat 500 for reps, and One motion a 340lbs log like it was a empty bar. But either way I asked him how he ate today and he kinda laughed said he eats 1 freaking time aday.
A absolutely massive meal right after he trains and that's it. He said it usually consists of a Large Pizza on wheat crust with a pound of beef and washes it all down with a big fruit and protein smoothie consisting of 2-3 scoops protein powder, 6-8 eggs, and various fruits.
It comes out some 4000 calories plus. He is not a crazy fat Strongman either he is a heavy weight 285lbs at 6ft but is in fairly good shape considering some of his competitors. He also stated if he gets hungray during the day which doesn't happen much he has protein shake. Also has coffee before every session but that's it other than that one meal.
Is this a viable option for gaining strength. I mean it is very appealing to me to sit down to absolutely awesome feast once a day and then be free of food till the next day.
