Here's a little bit about Eddie.
Everything about Eddie Hall is huge. He calls himself The Beast. He stands at 6ft 3in tall and weighs over 30 stone. To make it through his hellish 4-hour gym sessions, he has to eat around 12,000 calories. He puts himself under so much pressure during training that once his left eyeball burst out of its socket!
Eddie has been Britain’s Strongest Man every year for the last six years. He’s broken world records in front of his hero, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and in 2016 he became the first man to deadlift500kg – the equivalent to an overfed racehorse.
Eddie’s ultimate goal however was to become World’s Strongest Man. He used to say, “If you never see me on the podium at World’s Strongest Man, I probably died trying.” But then in May this year, he achieved his life’s quest. He won World’s Strongest Man. He was the first Briton to do so for 24 years.
Is he superhuman? Eddie wouldn’t say so. He believes that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. “Be who you want to be. Be a champion.”
In STRONGMAN: My Story, Eddie takes the reader inside the world of professional Strongman – the nutrition, the training and the competitions themselves. It’s a visceral story of sporting achievement, of an athlete pushing himself to the limits, and the personal story of a man on a path to being the best in the world.

A litre of milk with two scoops of protein powder.
A massive bowl of porridge; eight sausages; a 400g protein yoghurt; 250g of raspberries,
an Actimel, and a litre of cranberry juice.
BETWEEN MEAL SNACKS
Nuts and a bit of fruit, washed down with more cranberry juice and a few litres of water.
300g of chicken; 150g pasta; 250g vegetables smothered in mayonnaise; a litre of ice cream for pudding.
ON THE WAY TO THE GYM
Eight pieces of flapjack; a banana; an apple and two large bottles of Lucozade.
WHILE TRAINING (4 X HOUR SESSION)
Two litres of cranberry juice with four scoops of carbohydrate powder, then a litre of full fat milk with two scoops of protein powder. With the milk, 150g of sliced ham with some pieces of steak.
A litre of coconut water and then on the way home, some nuts, some fruit and three of four pieces of flapjack.
Spaghetti bolognaise, containing 500kg of lean mince and 300kg of pasta. That will be followed by another litre of ice cream and, once again, it’ll all be washed down with a litre or two of cranberry juice.
Before going to bed, an endless number of snacks which will probably constitute the last 2,000 calories of the required 12,000.
