Former World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall necks 20,000 calories in 24 hours – and says he’d never to do it again
FORMER World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall has revealed that he necked a scoffed 20,000 calories in just 24 hours.
Man-mountain Hall said he was not keen to repeat the unbelievable feast, revealing that he was left vomiting on the “worst day of my life”.
The now-35-year-old would routinely take on between 12,500 and 15,000 calories while bulking up for competition, but decided to push the limits of a cheat day with a gut-busting effort.
He told YouTuber Rob Moore: “There were days when it was a Sunday and you’d have a day of recovery and pile on the calories to help that recovery process – to help you train harder for the week coming.
“When I was in a big bulking season, I’d have litre of ice-cream after every single meal – and they were big meals. I’d have a full English breakfast, a litre of ice-cream; snacks in between; lunch would be half a kilo of steak, rice, pasta, vegetables…a litre of ice-cream.
“Then snacks up until dinner time, then a massive chicken curry, bolognese with a kilo of pasta – and then a litre of ice-cream. It was just a way of piling the calories on – not the healthiest.”
He explained that one day he added an extra 5,000 calories on to his 15,000 by drinking a litre of double cream throughout the day.
The strongman recalled: “By the end of the day, this litre of double cream had gone and f*** me – it was the worst day of my f****** life. I spent the whole night s****ing myself, throwing up, s****ing through the eye of a needle.
“Never again – I learnt my lesson. The human body can only take so much. I felt my limit that day.”
Despite the digestive horror he suffered, he did admit when pressed that he would do it again for £100,000, joking that “everyone’s got their price”.

In his prime, Hall won the 2017 World’s Strongest Man competition and has won UK’s Strongest Man six times consecutively between 2011 and 2017.
He held the world record for the deadlift, with a lift of 500kg, from 2016 to 2020, until long-time strongman rival Hafthor Bjornsson beat that mark but just 1kg.
