Celebrity chef Dan Churchill, who creates the recipes for Chris Hemsworth’s health and wellness app Centr, both when he’s bulking (Thor) and when he’s bulking bulking (Fat Thor), has a caveat for your copycat meal plan. “You have to remember: everyone is different,” Churchill begins. What Churchill means is that you should not actually eat like Chris Hemsworth. What he means—most politely—is that you are not 6’3” movie star Chris Hemsworth.
“Chris will sometimes eat 5,000 plus calories a day to get to the bulking capacity he needs,” Churchill explains. “Not everyone is like that. So, if you’re someone who needs to put on weight, you are adding on to your respective calorie intake—not trying to copy Chris.”
If you want to copy Chris proportionally, Churchill breaks down Hemsworth’s macros: 50-55 percent carbohydrates, 20-30 percent fat, and 20-30 percent protein.
As for meals, Hemsworth will do four big ones each day.
Breakfast is oatmeal—1 or 1.5 cups—along with almond butter and hemp seeds for the “good fats.” Hemsworth will often eat a shake with breakfast, something like a “salted caramel date smoothie,” which Churchill says is “absolutely baller and super popular.” (The shake: Choice of milk, then oats, then vanilla extract, vanilla protein, dates, and a pinch of high quality salt. The date is the secret to the shake tasting delicious, says Churchill.)
For a first lunch, Churchill likes to do a smokey chicken tray bake—“big bulk item, plenty of carbohydrates, and good source of protein.”
Second lunch entails another shake and another bake—this time a salmon tray bake with brown rice.
For dinner, Churchill likes a stir fry option, and one with an “epic amount of chicken.”
And then there’s dessert, which is not a cheat. Churchill likes peanut butter cookie and date bars, which he makes in bulk for the whole Hemsworth team. “They’re actually pretty good for you.”
