“I started crushing avocados," Watt said.
In one sitting, he eats eight chicken breasts - including three wrapped in bacon.
His favorite meal is his one-a-week brunch cheat day.
He said: “Had a massive potato pancake omelet, which is an omelet inside a potato pancake. Then I had stuffed French toast with berries and stuff.
"My cheat meals aren't even that exciting. That was my cheat meal. The omelet is still pretty darn healthy. The stuffed French toast was the cheat meal, but that was delicious."
