The Rock insane seven-meal per-day program

DWAYNE “The Rock” Johnson is a beast. A phenomenal specimen of man that has made wrestling fanatics and movie buffs go weak at the knees for years.

So what is fuelling that superhuman rig, a body that expert observers have noted is as much bodybuilder as wrestler and actor?

A LOT of food. Seven meals a day, in fact.

In the lead-up to filming his blockbuster 2014 movie Hercules, The Rock blew everyone away by bulking up with a program he called the “12 Labors Diet”.

Now, he is on a new seven meals per-day diet that involves eating insane amounts of protein – a diet he has shared with Muscle and Fitness.

The diet is a meticulous program that The Rock consumes every single day. Here is the full rundown, featuring a whole lot of cod:

MEAL 1: 10 oz (284g) cod, 2 whole eggs, 2 cups oatmeal

MEAL 2: 8 oz cod (227g), 12 oz (340g) sweet potato, 1 cup veggies

MEAL 3: 8 oz chicken (227g), 2 cups white rice, 1 cup veggies

MEAL 4: 8 oz (227g) cod, 2 cups rice, 1 cup veggies, 1 tbsp fish oil

MEAL 5: 8 oz (227g) steak, 12 oz (340g) baked potato, spinach salad

MEAL 6: 10 oz (284g) cod, 2 cups rice, salad

MEAL 7: 30g casein protein, 10 egg-white omelette, 1 cup veggies, 1 tbsp omega-3 fish oil

The overall statistics this diet throws up are simply jaw-dropping.

By following the diet ever day of the week for a full year, The Rock would be eating 371.5kg of cod per year, plus 82.5kg of both steak and chicken per year. That is a LOT of animal.

Apparently, the legend also enjoys gigantic stacks of pancakes for a treat.
