Aseel Soueid has tried different diets and workouts but never attempted one like this from strongman athletes Eddie Hall and Brian Shaw.
The athletes who compete in strongman have displayed their super-human strength for years and years. Many might not know the details of the insane meals that they eat on a daily basis to remain in shape to move massive amounts of weight. These might not be normal meals for some but YouTube and Fitness star Aseel Soueid decided to eat like a strongman for a day.
Soueid followed a video that Brian Shaw and Eddie Hall made on a daily meal plan when they are training. It was clear early on that Soueid was going to have his hands full over the course of the day.
“IT’S LITERALLY LIKE DOING AN EATING CHALLENGE EVERYDAY OF OUR LIVES,” BRIAN SHAW SAID.
Eddie Hall and Brian Shaw Diet
Brian Shaw shared what a breakfast might look like for him on a daily basis.
- 6-8 whole eggs
- 3-4 cups rice
- Spinach blended with orange juice
“IT’S TANGY. I’M NOT SURE IF YOU CAN SEE BUT IT’S ALSO REALLY FOAMY. IT’S NOT BAD BUT IT’S NOT GOOD EITHER. BY THE WAY, I’M PRETTY SURE HE TAKES LIKE THE ENTIRE CARTON,” SOUEID SAID.
There was a bit of a shakeup in the dessert portion of Eddie Hall’s pre-workout meal. Soueid explained how he could not have cheesecake because he is allergic to gluten and has Type 1 diabetes. Instead, he substituted the cheesecake with gluten-free vanilla cupcakes.
- 12-16 ounces ribeye steak
- 300 grams pasta
- 200 grams vegetables
- 1/2 family-see cheesecake
“APPARENTLY ALL THE STRONGMAN HAVE A THING WITH RIBEYE STEAK. THEY EAT RIBEYE STEAK BECAUSE IT’S SUPER FATTY. OBVIOUSLY EASY TO GET THE CALORIES IN. THE FATTER THE BETTER. JUST LIKE EXACT OPPOSITE OF US NORMAL PEOPLE LOOKING FOR FOOD.”
Aseel Soueid hits the gym after his first meal of steak and pasta. He attempts to throw in some strongman workouts into the mix but did not last through an entire routine. Once he returns home, Soueid follows Hall’s post-workout meal.
- Half a kilo ribeye steak
- Half a kilo carbs (pasta and rice)
- Other half family-size cheesecake
“WHO IN THE WORLD HAS RICE AND PASTA IN ONE MEAL? THAT SHOULD LITERALLY BE ILLEGAL.”
The final meal of the day is right before bed where Hall would make a massive protein shake and have “a couple” protein bars. Soueid takes a variety pack of three and washes it down with a huge protein shake.
“IT IS RIDICULOUS. I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY CAN EAT LIKE THIS ON A DAILY BASIS.”
“THEY ALL MADE COMPLETE BODY TRANSFORMATIONS BUT I RESPECT THE DEDICATION AND PASSION THAT THEY HAVE TOWARD THE STRONGMAN SPORT.”
