eddie-hall-dietThe Eddie Hall Diet is something you want to follow if you’re struggling to gain mass.

Quite simply, it is a diet plan that dreams are made of for anyone who lifts. Being able to eat 10,000 calories a day, maintain fitness levels, get super strong and not be called a fat greedy bastard.

Why the hell did i decide to step onto a bodybuilding stage and not onto a deadlifting platform?

Setting the macro goals bar ridiculously high, the only thing Eddie is doing better absolutely smashing the sport of strongman. Winning 5 consecutive UK’s strongest man titles and making year on year improvements in Worlds Strongest Man competitions since 2013.

Oh – and setting the world record for the deadlift at 500kg in the Summer of 2016.

How? Genetics, hard training and this 10,000 calorie Eddie Hall diet.

If you want to get strong like the Worlds Strongest Man – you gotta Eat Like The Worlds Strongest Man. I’ve scoured numerous interviews, tabloid coverage and features on the deadlifting machine to bring you the Eddie Hall Strongman Diet.

Eddie Hall Strongman Diet – A Closer Look At Supplements

Eddie Hall is currently sponsored by Protein Dynamix, so it goes without saying – he uses their supplements.

His most recent supplement stack is below:

Dynapro Gain

This is a mass gain shake with a carb blend of maltodextrin, out flour and waxy maize starch. The protein content is a blend of whey protein concentrate, milk protein and calcium caseinate.

What You Can Do:

I’d always recommend making your own mass gain shake. Here is my 1000kcal mass gain shake recipe that you can make for under £1 a serving.

Dynapro Lean

This is a whey protein blend of isole, concentrate and hydrolysed whey protein, which also contains CLA, ALCAR and Green Tea Extract.

What You Can Do:

Do you need this? No.

I’ve used Dynapro Lean from Protein Dynamix and it doesn’t taste great. I much prefer their dynapro anytime protein powder.

If you’re on a budget – a basic whey protein concentrate will do the job. Im always dubious of protein blends that add CLA & ALCAR. I think its quite gimmicky, and I personally supplement with CLA in capsule form – so getting an additional amount in a protein shake is overkill for me.

Dynago Amino

This is an amino blend supplement, designed to be used through a workout.

What You Can Do

I am very skeptical when I see athletes saying they drink aminos with their meals. Im not a nutritionist and I certainly don’t hold a PhD in any related areas – so my scientific knowledge is limited. I just do not see the need to drink amino acids when you’re eating a protein rich meal.

I personally use DynaGo as an intra workout supplement. It contains 7g of BCAA, as well as 3g of glutamine and a vitamin and mineral blend. Im a believer in supplementing with BCAA – if you train hard.

If you’re a casual gym goer that trains to break a bit of a sweat – then i’d save my money.

Dynapro Mousse

This a casein based protein blend that can be made into a dessert.

What You Can Do

If you have a sweet tooth – then by all means add this to your supplement stack and diet. Its not essential by any means.

Creatine

You should be using this. Its a supplement i’d recommend to anyone.

The Eddie Hall Supplement Stack

5 years from now, if Eddie has been offered more money by a different sponsor – this supplement stack will change. It’s just the nature of the beast (pun intended).

Not a nock to Eddie in particular – far from it.

However, anytime an athlete is sponsored, said athlete will promote those products over other brands.

Protein Dynamix are one of the biggest brands in Europe and I would definitely recommend their pre workout & intra workout supplements – along with most of their other supplements. But I would also recommend supplements from other brands – such as My Protein. What im saying is – take supplement information with a grain of salt.

Many supplements are very similar in terms of quality, ingredients and so on – so just do your research before you buy. That being said however, Protein Dynamix are one of Europe’s biggest supplement brands & I would personally recommend them based on using their range for around 18 months now.

Can You Eat Like Eddie Hall?

If you’re a wanting to pack on some serious size and strength – then use the above as a template. Just consider this – Eddie weighs well over 21 stone.

So if you weight 10 stone (or 140lbs) then you probably don’t want to jump into Eddies quantities.

Instead, use this as a basis to get you started for meal ideas, meal frequencies and understand that to grow and get strong – you need to eat a lot.
