I have started working with Nathan Payton for my diet planning and so far it has really helped me. I have cleaned up my eating (not that I was eating badly before) overall and feel like I am getting stronger all the time. My basic diet consists of a lot of lean meat chicken, beef, buffalo, fish, etc. and a lot of carbohydrates mixed in with fruits and vegetables spread over 7 meals throughout the day. It is a ton of work cooking and eating all of the food but I look at this as part of my job and in all honesty it is basically like a part-time job with eating and cooking taking me almost 3 hours a day with most of that time spent simply chewing and swallowing food!
“Big Z’ as he is know to fans is truly a modern legend in the making. This Lithuanian born competitor has competed 10 times for the World’s Strongest Man including the last seven consecutive years. He is a four-time champion, most recently in 2014, and a 14-time champion of the Lithuanian strongest man competition. Big Z has never finished outside of the top 3 at the WSM competition, which is no surprise given his incredibly lifting personal bests. He boasts a bench press over 600 pounds and a deadlift of nearly 900 pounds! He is still in his prime and could easily take his fifth title in 2016.
Percentage of foreign trade: 4%. Exchange rate to the US Dollar: 1=$ Often referred as the ‘loonie’ since it has an image of a loon, the Canadian Dollar ranks at number 7 on our list. The history of Canadian Dollar goes way back to 1861, when currencies of 3 colonies including Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Canadian Colony merged as one and became Canadian Dollar. The strength of the Canadian Dollar is very much linked to the commodities markets such as precious metals, mineral and crude oil; it is therefore often the choice as currency of trade in these areas. .
