On Wednesday, Big Loz shares a video to YouTube showing what a full day of eating for him looks like in retirement. Obviously, this is a diet that is significantly cut down from his time eating to compete in strongman. Since his days competing, Big Loz has lost over 85 pounds and is adding more muscle definition.
Below, you can find the full diet for the 2016 Europe’s Strongest Man champion. He details each meal, along with the calorie count for each.
Meal 1 – 604 calories
This is a meal that starts the day for Big Loz. It is kept simple and can be added to if he is feeing hungrier on a certain day. The amount of oats that is consumed is half the amount that Big Loz used to eat during his strongman days.
- 100 grams oats
- 300 milliliters skim milk
- Single scoop Whey protein
- Banana or four squares sea salt dark chocolate — on certain days
Meal 2 – 598 calories
During meal two, Big Loz will often indulge in a Diet Coke. He is a believer in diet sodas because it allows him to avoid the drinks with many calories that do not add any nutritional value.

Meal 3 – 613 calories

- 100 grams Fusilli pasta
- 150 grams chicken
- 15 grams pesto
