You probably don’t want to try this at home. Professional strongman Brian Shaw has revealed his diet plan in a video. What does it look like? 12,000+ calories in a day, which translates into a whole lot of food and the determination to eat it.

“I should probably start out at the beginning by saying…This diet is to make me as strong as I possibly can be. I’m eating to be the strongest man on the planet,” he says at the beginning of the video, practically warning his viewers to be extra careful while attempting anything similar.

He explains that it’s especially difficult to do this when he’s not hungry. “It’s a necessary evil, so to speak,” he says.

He’s taken home the World’s Strongest Man title several times. Maintaining that tag is no joke.

Shaw gets a nutritionist to help him out with his diet plan since monitoring his eating is a continuous process and an incredibly tough part of his training. He breaks down his meals in the video and they include the usual suspects, such as eggs and protein shakes.

It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to do it.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
