Be Like The Rock, Eat Like The Rock!
The Rock was always a pretty muscular guy. But when he first appeared in The Fast and The Furious franchise people were shocked how bigger he got. He was a WWE superstar, turned into on of Hollywood’s most successful action movie actors. He was the badass cop in The Fast and the Furious franchise, he was Hercules, and he was also a top secret agent in Central Intelligence. At 6ft 5in and weighing 270 pounds of muscle, he’s known for his legendary muscular physique. To maintain a body as big as that, you can only imagine how much food he has to eat and how much exercise he has to do. Well the answer is about 5000 calories per day! Yes, you read that right. 5000! He shouldn’t be called “The Rock” and be called “The Boulder” instead.
7 Meals a Day
When The Rock revealed his daily routine, everyone was like “woaaah.” The Rock eats about 5000 calories a day for 7 meals. Now for some perspective; the recommended daily calorie intake for a regular guy would be around 2500 calories, depending on other factors. So imagine if you we’re eating how much The Rock is eating everyday, would we be able to look like him? Here’s what he eats everyday.
Meal 1 – 10 oz cod, 2 whole eggs, 2 cups oatmeal
Meal 2 – 8 oz cod, 12 oz sweet potato, 1 cup veggies
Meal 3 – 8 oz chicken, 2 cups white rice, 1 cup veggies
Meal 4 – 8 oz cod, 2 cups rice, 1 cup veggies, 1 tbsp fish oil
Meal 5 – 8 oz steak, 12 oz baked potato, spinach salad
Meal 6 – 10 oz cod, 2 cups rice, salad
Meal 7 – 30 grams casein protein, 10 egg-white omelet, 1 cup veggies (onions, peppers, mushrooms), 1 tbsp omega-3 fish oil

Train Like a Demi-God
Eating 5000 calories per day is certainly bad for you… that is if you’re not a huge pile of muscle like The Rock. But still, even if he’s such a big guy, Dwayne still needs to workout to burn some of the calories he eats. Because if he didn’t work out he wouldn’t be “The Rock” and more like “The Tub of Lard.” So for his workout routine, he wakes up at 4am everyday and does an extensive hour of cardio before breakfast. Then he does weightlifting for about an hour and a half. And as we can all imagine, he must be lifting some pretty heavy weights to get a body like that. He trains for 6 days a week, and only one day of rest. That must be really exhausting.
Could We Try This?
I’m sure you are all wondering, “What if I tried eating and training like The Rock?” Well, a guy decided to do just that. His name is Mark Webster, and he isn’t a wrestler turned into action start. He isn’t even a muscular guy; he’s just your regular joe. He’s just like us, and he decided to try one of the most outrageous workout and diet plans on the planet. As it turns out eating like The Rock isn’t cheap. After doing the challenge for 30 days, he spent a total of $1,262 on food, at about $42 dollars a day. That’s $18 dollars a day for just cod. Well, other than being expensing, eating like The Rock also takes a lot of time to prepare. Just imagine prepare 30 pounds of food per day? And it takes about 20 minutes to eat each meal, so that 2 hours and 20 minutes a day spent on just eating. He also worked out, for 1 hour of cardio a day and weightlifting for an hour and a half a day for 6 days a week. After the 30 day challenge, Webster didn’t turned out as huge as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, but there was some noticeable muscle gain. His challenge even got the attention and the respect of the big man himself. He also got our respect. So are you willing to take up “The Rock” challenge?
