Tyson Fury is consuming a jaw-dropping 3,400 calories a day ahead of his upcoming fight with Dillian Whyte.

‘The Gypsy King’ has been training for over eight weeks as he looks to successfully defend his heavyweight throne against Whyte.

Recently, Lockhart revealed the WBC heavyweight champion’s daily diet.

For breakfast, Fury enjoys some scrambled eggs, low-oil-fried potatoes, avocado and black pudding.

For dinner, Fury enjoys an eight-hour-cooked barbeque beef brisket with a side of pickled cabbage.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Lockhart said:

“A lot of people are shocked about this. People think he should be eating way more.

“He’s feeling great, he’s recovering quickly. That was a shocker for me, for a 6ft 9 heavyweight that’s highly active – I expected more as well.

“Most guys that I work with, they’ll do a lifting session and the next day they’ll be lighter. Tyson will actually be heavier.

“Tyson’s more fat adaptive than he is carb adaptive; most fighters are more carb adaptive. When we did the 30lbs in 30 days, it was crazy, he could fast for two days and then do 20 rounds.

“Everyone in the gym would be like, ‘Bro, we’re done.’ And he’d want to do more. It shows that he’s fat adaptive, he can keep going.

“For someone who is more carb-adaptive, they’ll look like a bodybuilder, once they’re low on carbs they’ll be getting the shakes, their mind is gone, they’re gone.”

Lockhart added: “He’s got a huge aerobic capacity, That’s one of the many things Tyson has in his arsenal. He really is one of a kind.”

Fury will be hoping that his Lockhart’s meals will keep him in tip-top shape ahead of this weekend’s heavyweight outing against Whyte.
