– [Brian] I have to own my size.
I can’t go and be like,
“Well, I wanna trade my body in.
I wanna be smaller.”
It’s not gonna work.
Right now I’m 6’8.
And about 400 pounds.
My name is Brian Shaw.
And I’m the World’s Strongest Man.
The heaviest I would compete is about 420 pounds.
– [Interviewer] What do you have to do
to maintain that, eating wise?
– [Brian] To be honest, it’s a lot of eating.
Gotta have the peanut butter.
I’ll buy at least close to ten pounds if not more of the meat.
I end up pretty much buying everything they have.
You know, on a typical day I’ll probably consume
at the very low end 5-6,000 calories a day
and the upper end would be about 10,000 a day.
– [Interviewer] We saw the video of you
going through aisle on the plane. – [Brian] Yep.
– [Interviewer] Are there any moments like that
on any day-to-day that you have to deal with?
– [Brian] It does happen.
Fitting different places,
and it can be challenging.
I find it a little bit hard when things are tiny.
Like I definitely like my utensils to be bigger.
My wife and I have different spoons,
we have different forks that we use.
Because my fingers are so big,
typing is a little bit harder.
You kind of learn to adapt to it because
they’re not gonna make a keyboard bigger just for me.
The reason I actually sit like a lot in these
folding chairs is ’cause a lot of office chairs
have arms on ’em, you know, and I can’t fit my hips,
’cause you can see I’m kinda of off this chair.
So that’s what works.
– [Interviewer] Do people that come look at you
and be like, “Wow, that’s a huge guy.”
然后说 “哇 真是个大家伙”
– [Brian] A lot of people do look.
It’s kind of funny
because I don’t really notice it anymore.
I like being big.
I’ve kind of embraced it.
I’ve always been able to do stuff with my body
whether it was playing basketball or strong man
or, you know, really anything.
But it’s a positive thing, too.
