The Rock Eats Over Ten Pounds Of Food PER DAY And Here’s A Meal-By-Meal Breakdown

The Rock is in the gym at least 23 of the 24 hours in a day. Maybe it just feels like he’s constantly lifting to us average folk but the Rock does get paid to stay in top physical condition. It’s a part of this job. He’s got to look a certain way.

All of that working out requires a ton of food. More food than the average bro eats in a day, possibly, a week.

The Rock’s eating habits were laid out in this Muscle & Fitness feature and then FiveThirtyEight took it a step further to break it down by the meal.

It’s a remarkable eating plan. The 42-year old actor consumes pounds of animal protein to maintain his immense bulk — his seven daily meals include a total of 2.3 pounds of cod and 12 eggs, plus steak and chicken — but he also manages to eat two potatoes, some vegetables, rice, and so on.

Johnson eats roughly 10 pounds of food every day.

The average American man in his forties consumes 2,734 calories daily, according to data from the USDA. Johnson eats roughly 1,000 calories a day in cod alone. Annualized, Johnson eats about 821 pounds of cod per year. According to FishChoice, Pacific cod goes for $1.75 per pound, meaning Johnson spends roughly $1,400 per year on cod. As all our cod consumption slowly progresses past sustainable levels, let’s all consider Dwayne Johnson uniquely responsible.

Johnson’s nutrient intake is particularly mind-boggling.

I’m tempted to try this diet for a week. Who wants to see me try? Hit me on Twitter and tell me I should try it.
