So Bryson's diet is apparently a big deal today, even in mainstream media...there's a write-up on Fox News.

Honestly, I'm not all that blown away by the total calorie count...it's really not that hard to eat that many calories, especially if you've got steak and bacon on the menu.  In fact it's easy if you are relying on shakes as much as he is.  

What it is is damn expensive.  I drink two shakes a day on my workout days, but I'm drinking the MuscleTech stuff from Sam's Club that's $30 for a 5-gallon tub.  This Orgain stuff that he's drinking is $20 for 1 pound.  At 7 shakes a day he's going through a 1 pound container every two days at least.

I know financially in his position that's not an issue, but it's certainly not an every man's diet for bulking up.

23 in SG putting. It's not his putting. His chipping on the other hand. (104) 🤮 And the funny thing is that this gets compounded by hitting the ball farther....

Edit to add; Absolutely no fruits or vegetables unless those make up his "snacks while practicing."  Sounds a bit like trying to feed a middle school kid.

wow... he must poop a lot.

also - they need to show what his workout routine is along with this diet. If he is consuming that many calories he's also got to balance it with some type of workout. We're only seeing half the picture here.

they do this type of stuff with the "world's strongest man" thing and it's kinda ridiculous. 
Look, he eats 4 steaks, a dozen eggs, 4 chickens and washes it all down with a massive veggie/protein/turbo shake!!

Shakes are healthy and are supplements. He’s probably consuming 240+g of protein. Not easy to get that in while not being at the house for every meal. The shakes are a supplement to eating

The "supplement" industry is the least regulated industry in the world. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2016/06/supplements-make-tobacco-look-easy/488798/

Pretty damning when the past 6 Directors of the Department of Health and Human Services compared supplements and their effects on the US population to be as bad as big tobacco! 

I'll pass!

I don’t disagree that there’s issues within the supplement industry and a lot of the issues revolve around supplements like fat burners and nowhere in that article does it talk about issues with protein shakes. 

You won’t find a reputable trainer that doesn’t talk about it being ok to use protein shakes to help meet protein needs. The number of them that would say consuming 7 a day is probably low but I have seen several including those with PHDs in nutrition that say it’s ok to use a few shakes per day. 
 

Bryson has a full team around him and I would doubt he’s drinking 7 shakes without their approval and recommendation on what brands to use.

Seems like he is a guy that doesn't normally have a big appetite.

Back when I was Bryson's age (sounds weird saying that), I could eat a 24 oz steak like it was an appetizer. I have an abnormally big appetite though, even to this day.

These days, I do have two scoops of protein per day, 1 per bowl of oatmeal.

The whole diet and weight gain seems like an ego thing. The training that he put in is what should be getting the attention, but it y’all about his weight gain and not the work he put in that really made the difference.

A few isn't 7 a day!  Far from it!  To each their own!  I don't believe it's sustainable.  Time will tell.

Again he has a training staff. If 7 was an issue they wouldn’t let him have that many. Also they don’t say if it’s pure protein like whey or casein or a combo or if it’s some concoction of protein sources blended up. 

As with anything in training time and tracking will always determine the results. It all depends on what his goals will be and if they change to accomplish something else. His current goal was to bulk up to increase driving distance. Over the last 3+ months he was able to do both. He could easily go into a maintenance mode if he’s at his desired weight and appearance. maybe as the year goes on his wants to cut some body fat to improve his physique then his diet will change and what he consumes will match up with that.  It would be like a bodybuilder who goes into a long bulk to add muscle and size then enters a prep phase to be stage ready and they cut size. 
 

We have to wait and see what his goals are, but for the time being he’s achieving what he’s set out for.

@RickyBobby_PRis right, the guy has a training staff and dietitian scheduling and programming his workouts, nutrition, etc. I doubt any of us are really in a position to second-guess the experts he has around him, especially since it's obviously working for him.   I'm honestly a little surprised the total calorie count is only 3-3.5K.  I did a mild winter bulk and my total calorie count for a bulking diet, per day, was 3.1K.  Granted that was for a slow clean bulk, but I'm only 5'9"...I would have guessed he'd need more than that.

But again, he's no doubt surrounded by experts who know what they're doing.

I was surprised the cals were in that range. I expected them to be in the 4-5 range for the amount of weight he gained in a short period of time.

At the end of the day calories are energy and the number of calories needed depends on the energy levels and expenditures of the individual person and their goal. The rock eats about 7k calories/day and is upwards of 10k. His cheat day looks like most people’s entire week

Nobody, including Bryson, knows how this will play out over time.  We've never seen anyone at the highest levels of golf do this before.  The on-course results are interesting and intriguing but I don't believe it is sustainable.  I believe he will ultimately have injury issues.  It just depends on how long he can sustain this frame and play golf at the elite level his is currently playing before those injuries mount.  

Again, my opinion.  It may or may not be worth a s*** for anything!

That goes for anything in golf or life. It’s not like Bryson is doing this on his own and just winging it. Anyone working with a coach whether it’s for their swing, their nutrition or training communicates with their coach and there’s a plan that has some sort of goal associated with it to track progress or lack of. Based on the whatever metric is used to track the coach uses that plus feedback from the individual and adjusts accordingly. 
 

None of us knows what his long term goal is or what the intermediate points are to that end goal so yes this may or may not be sustainable for a long period of time (whatever one considers long). It may not be his plan. What we can do is look at his goal and did he achieve it. So far the goal was to bulk up to gain distance and be the longest driver on tour. He achieved the added weight and the added weight achieved his goal of being the longest driver on tour over the last several weeks. It also hasn’t affected his ability to play well and finish high on the leaderboard. 
 

Now it’s sit back and watch and wait for what’s next or see if things start going bad for him and if he adjusts and how he adjusts.

Well said.  For me that he gained the weight and bulk really isn't the impressive part.  That's perfectly doable for many.  It's that he's translated it to increased clubhead speed.  Conventional wisdom would tell you upper body mass becomes a hindrance rather than an enabler.  What he's doing is truly historic in the game.  Sustainable?  We'll see.  Personally I have my doubts, but it's good entertainment to say the least...
