The Incredible Journey of the World's Tallest Natural Bodybuilder


Do you know who the tallest natural bodybuilder is?

Olivier Richters, who holds the Guinness World Record for being the world's tallest bodybuilder, talked about his diet and workout regimen in a recent interview with Men's Health. The 330-pound, 7-foot-2 Dutch bodybuilder has had roles in various Hollywood movies, like "Black Widow" and the upcoming film "Borderlands.

Olivier Richters Early Life

Olivier Richters was born in 1989 in the Netherlands. He was born with a birth defect called ‘pectus excavatum,’ which resulted in a sunken chest that would require surgery later on. Though his tall stature would have made him ideal for a career in basketball, he decided it wasn’t the sport for him after three years.

Olivier decided to pursue bodybuilding in 2007 after he became displeased with his physical appearance and wanted to add muscle mass. He started at a mere 85 kg, so he had a lot of work to do. >

He initially made common mistakes newbies make in the gym, but he saw significant progress once he made adjustments to his diet and workout routine.

To slim down for his role as a boxer in the film "The Electrical Life of Louis Wain," Richters told the outlet he had to cut his calorie intake from around 6,500 to 7,000 to just 5,000 a day.

Richters stated that his high-calorie diet is required, even when trying to shed pounds, to support his workouts and recovery.

He told Men's Health, "It may sound foolish, but people sometimes forget how large my frame is and how much muscle damage that incurs. The scale and the mirror just show that I need it."

Olivier Richters Daily Nutrition 

His 5,000-calorie diet consists of a minimum of 300 grams of protein. According to The Mayo Clinic, 10 to 35% of an average person's daily calorie intake should come from protein.

Richter stated that his daily protein intake includes around half a pound of salmon and an oat protein shake.

The shake consists of 700 calories, 1 1/2 cups of ultrafine oats, 1/2 cup of vanilla whey protein powder, and water. He said he drinks it six or seven times a day to rapidly consume calories.

"I can consume 1,000 calories and approximately 70 grams of protein in just three minutes," Richters said. "I drink it in one minute and eat the salmon in two minutes."

The 38-year-old said that, because he can't waste any time eating on set, he has to consume calories quickly.

"It doesn't really matter anymore. It's all about efficiency at the moment," he said
