Ryan Brown-From Milo of Greece whose daily diet allegedly consisted of 20 lbs of meat, 20 lbs of bread and 18 pints of wine. He once carried a 4 year-old bull on his shoulders before slaughtering, roasting and devouring it in one day. He was said to have achieved the feat of lifting the bull by starting in childhood, lifting and carrying a newborn calf and repeating the feat daily as it grew to maturity. So I guess it is easy, be simple and consistent. Eat a lot and drink 18 pints of wine a day.
