Braun Strowman's Diet Consists Of
ALL OF THE FOOD
Braun Strowman is a really big dude.
Listed at 6'8" and 385 ell-bees, he's a hoss and a half.
And he needs fuel for that machine--lots of it. Speaking in an interview with the New York Stock Exchange YouTube channel (don't ask), he said:
"When I'm not flipping ambulances I'm in the gym stacking plates and banging weights. I eat 15,000 calories a day just to be able to feed the monster. It takes a lot to run almost a 400 pound frame. As far as training goes, sometimes I just go out into the woods and I beat trees down with my bare hands."
Let's ignore for a moment that he goes out into the woods and "BEATS TREES DOWN WITH HIS BARE HANDS." I mean, we already know that he likes to murder forests in his spare time.
No, let's focus on the FIFTEEN THOUSAND CALORIES he needs just to keep moving.
That's a whole lot of KFC two-pieces.
Just to give you an idea ...
That's about 9,500 calories.
My math might be off.
What does Braun eat to get the 15,000 calorie mark?
10 large pizzas?
25 double cheeseburgers?
182 lean chicken breasts?
A whole cow?
Well, kind of.
According to a different interview with Inside the Ropes, Braun fills out his menu (and his belly) at Chipotle, six days a week, every week, and he's got a very specific, very expensive order.
"It's my guilty pleasure, even though I'm trying to get Chipotle to sponsor me, because I spend $150 a week in there. It's $25 dollars for every bowl. It's three scoops of steak, two scoops of chicken, double guacamole, cheese, sour cream, and corn."
I mean, I'm a big dude myself, and I love Chipotle as much as the next three guys, but even I don't think I could pack away an order like that even once without my gallbladder declaring mutiny on my whole body and keeling over into a very literal food coma.
But that's why Braun is so special.
Well, that and his ability to flip over ambulances.
