Thor's Dietposted by : Jon Kroupa on 07/15/2012
A lot of people were impressed with the way Chris Hemsworth looked in the movie Thor. So I set out to try the diet he used to prepare for that role in the movie.
Details on the internet are a little sketchy, except to say he had a lot of protein shakes, had chicken and a carbobydrate for lunch, and chicken and broccoli for dinner. Chris Hemsworth is quoted as saying he ate lots and lots of chickens.
This is how I applied the diet. For breakfast I had a protein shake with milk (usually 2%). I would have chicken with vegetables and a carbohydrate for lunch, workout in the early evening, and have chicken and broccoli for dinner.
Additionally, I tried to get my hands on some Golden Apples of Idunn. These are usually only found in the magical realm of Asgard though.
That's a lot of chicken, and chicken gets pretty old. In fact the entire diet is extremely monotonous. The 4 Hour Body Diet said this is actually a good thing. You don't want your body second guessing what you are eating. Well that is all good and well, except your brain and tastebuds will start to rebel.
By the time Friday rolled around I was really tired of eating chicken. I wasn't exactly sad to have the power go out just as I was ready to cook dinner. I originally wanted to go to a place which would have chicken, but my brother talked me into Burger King.
Sunday I weighed 189. That is actually 1-2 pounds less than I was the 3 weeks I was on the Low Carb Diet. I don't know if that has to do with anything though. My weight was pretty stable at 190-191 on low carb, it is likely just a fluke that it would be less this morning.
