“Sometimes Chris will eat more than 5,000 calories per day to reach the bulking capacity that he needs,” Churchill explains. “Not all people are like that. So, if you are someone who needs to gain some weight, you’re adding on to your respective calorie intake and not trying to mimic Chris.”
If you would like to mimic Chris proportionally, he breaks down Hemsworth’s macros: 20-30 percent fat, 50-55 percent carbohydrates and 20-30 percent protein.
As for meals, Hemsworth will eat four large ones per day.
For Breakfast he will have 1 to 1.5 cups of oatmeal along with hemp seeds and almond butter for the “healthy fats.” Hemsworth will often enjoy a shake with his breakfast, maybe something like a “salted caramel date smoothie,” which Churchill states is “absolutely amazing and super popular.” (The ingredients of the shake are as follows: Your choice of milk, then vanilla extract, then oats, dates, vanilla protein, and just a pinch of high quality salt. “The date is the secret to this great tasting shake,” says Churchill.)
For a starting lunch, Churchill prefers to do a smokey chicken tray bake—“large bulk item, a lot of carbohydrates, and a great source of protein.”
The second lunch includes another bake and another shake. On this one he likes doing a salmon tray bake with a side of brown rice.
For supper, Churchill likes to serve him a stir fry option, and one with a large amount of chicken.
And lastly there’s dessert, which is not usually considered a cheat. Churchill likes date and peanut butter cookie bars, which he prepares in bulk for the entire Hemsworth team. “They are actually really good for you.”
While some experts support the idea of only having one meal per day while also fasting, others say that the multiple meals per day routine like Hemsworth follows is the healthiest. However, nobody really knows. Everyone is unique and it really comes down to finding the best diet that fits your body type and perhaps even one that tastes great to you and fits your daily routine.
