Keep Your Physique "Rock Hard" With This Workout Dedicated to Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson's renowned meal plan requires consumption of over 350 grams of protein per day, and intake of approximately 10 pounds of food.

Ever wonder what it would be like to try Dwayne Johnson’s 10-pound per day diet? Even if you can smell what “The Rock” is cooking, it’s seemingly impossible to consume a daily helping of food equivalent to the weight of a medium-sized cat. At least, not if you lack discipline. Johnson’s highly publicized daily meal plan has generated media buzz across the Internet’s blogosphere, but actually trying the former WWE superstar’s seven-meal-per-day diet requires more than a bodybuilder’s appetite.

Wake Up And Eat

Johnson’s insane food prep regimen begins at 4am each morning, according to Muscle and Fitness. If you already find it difficult to stomach an absurdly early morning wake-up call, try downing a pound of food before the sun rises. Johnson’s first meal includes 10 ounces of cod, two whole eggs and two cups of oatmeal, immediately followed by an intense workout session, and another meal loaded with cod. Johnson consumes approximately 34 ounces of cod per day, which equates to roughly 2.125 pounds of fish. Trying Johnson’s diet demands an extreme level of dedication, accountability, and craving for an unimaginable helping of cod.

Strengthen Your Eating Regimen

Trying Johnson’s daily meal plan isn’t for the prototypical calorie counter, or conventional bodybuilder. His diet plan consists of seven meals and intense bouts of exercise in between each eating session. Johnson’s second meal includes eight ounces of cod, a 12 ounce sweet potato and one cup of vegetables. His third meal consists of eight ounces of chicken breast, two cups of white rice and and another cup of veggies. His systematic routine can be tried, but seldom can it be repeated. Johnson’s fourth meal doesn’t require a trip to the drive thru; it includes eight ounces of cod, two cups of rice, one cup of vegetables and one teaspoon of fish oil.

Maximize Your Protein Intake

Johnson’s renowned diet plan includes consumption of over 350 grams of protein per day to maximize his muscle-building capacity. For comparative purposes, the average adult male consumes approximately 50 to 75 grams of protein per day, or less than 25 percent of Johnson’s daily intake. His final three meals include a combination of chicken, steak, eggs, potato, mushroom, green salad and casein protein in quantities sufficient enough to feed an entire family at dinner.

Sleep On It

In total, “The Rock” consumes an estimated total of 5,165 calories per day, equating to a whopping 10 pounds. His food choices are extremely healthy in nature, enabling him to maintain a beastly physique at 6’4’’ and 270 pounds. Despite his insane eating regimen and workout routine, “The Rock” consumes less fat and sugar than the average American does while eating significantly less food on a daily basis. So, think you have the mental fortitude and physical toughness needed to try Johnson’s superhuman diet? Most bodybuilders couldn’t even dream of it.
