Icelandic strongman and actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has announced he is ‘willing’ to try a plant-based diet

Björnsson, who was crowned The World’s Strongest Man in 2018, and has been titled Europe’s Strongest Man four-times, was asked to ditch animal products on Instagram by American bodybuilder Kai Greene – who is trialing a plant-based diet after watching vegan documentary The Game Changers

‘Look at gorillas bro’

“You gotta try the plant-based diet, @Thorbjornsson. Look at gorillas bro they only eat plants!” Greene wrote.

“All joke aside tho, a vegan diet is more effective for a strongman than a bodybuilder – so you’ll see better benefits than I would.”

‘An interesting topic’

Björnsson, who features on popular TV show Game Of Thrones, replied: “Definitely an interesting topic! I might as well give it a try for a week on my offseason. 

“I’m always willing to give everything a chance! Especially when it comes from legends like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kai Greene.” 

The Instagram post caught the attention of one of the Diesel Brothers ‘The Muscle’ who also commented stating: “I may just try this.”
