Thor's Meal Plan: What Chris Hemsworth Ate For Love And Thunder

The new Thor movie is a bit different than the rest.  As such, Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, wanted to be in even better shape (i.e. bigger) than he was in previous movies.  

This was a challenge because he had leaned down to play other roles.  So he turned to a hefty meal plan created by his chef to support his goals in the months leading up to filming.

Chris Hemsworth's Meal Plan Highlights

  • Thor's stuntman, Bobby Holland Hanton, followed a very similar routine and even hung out with Chris most of the time before and during filming
  • They ate 6 to 10 meals a day.  It depends on the article you read, and probably the day
  • Each meal was about 450 calories
  • Lots of veggies, meat, and rice show up in basically every meal
  • Steak is his favorite protein, but he rotated through the animal kingdom to mix it up
  • His minimal supplement routine included protein powder, BCAA's, and magnesium/zinc
  • He didn't eat meat the day they filmed (spoiler alert) the kiss scene because Natalie Portman is vegan and Chris wanted to respect that.  Pretty cool
  • The rare cheat meal was meat lovers pizza, ice cream, chocolate, etc
  • Bobby, stuntman, allowed himself 2 hours a week to just pound whatever junk food he could get his hands on
  • Chris Hemsworth started a health and fitness company called Centr with his chef, stuntman, and trainer to share his love of health and fitness
  • A go-to shake he likes to do is a banana, two dates, almond milk, and a scoop of protein

Bobby Holland Hanton gained about 22 pounds of muscle in a stunning transformation.

  • The video shows his warmup
  • It seems like Chris and Bobby trained together
  • Hanton said that he wound up training two or three times daily during the prep period, and packed on weight with meals filled with protein from eggs, tuna, lean turkey, lamb, chicken, and steak using recipes from the Centr app.
  • "Chris decided he wanted to be the biggest Thor yet as he has also been training hard—as he always does—so this has been my biggest physical transformation to date," he says. "I am having to lift heavy—the heaviest I’ve ever had to lift—but also doing a lot of my own bodyweight circuit stuff, almost like a CrossFit/plyo fusion to stay mobile and agile in my stunts, fights, etc. (which is similar to my plyo workouts on Centr). And it’s still very hard to get anywhere near Chris Hemsworth’s shape!"  BULKING WITH ‘THOR 2’ STUNTMAN BOBBY HOLLAND HANTON
