Dwayne Johnson reveals his six-meal-a-day meal plan that gave him a superhero body

Dwayne Johnson reveals his six-meal-a-day meal plan that gave him a superhero body

There's no denying Dwayne Johnson has one of the most formidable bodies in Hollywood.

He already had an impressive chassis from his professional wrestling days, however The Rock has really upped the ante since becoming Tinseltown's biggest and most bankable action stars.

While you can slug it out for hours in the gym, you also have to make sure you eat right, otherwise all that iron lifting will be for nothing.

And you can bet your heaviest dumbbell that Dwayne Johnson's daily meal plan is as impressive as his size.

When he signed up to play Black Adam to enter the DC Extended Universe, he knew he needed to put on even more muscle.

While speaking to Men's Health, the actor confirmed he would eat six meal every single day to bulk up.

He had a 'team of chefs and a strength and condition coach that figure out the precise macro count necessary to maintain his superhero physique'.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and The Rock kicks things off with 'eggs, a meat like bison, a complex carb like oatmeal, and fruit, usually either papaya or blueberries'.

That would honestly do me for most of the day, but not Dwayne Johnson. No, he's just getting started.

There will most certainly be a morning workout and then he'll have his second meal at around 10am, according to Men's Health.

This will usually consist of 'complex carbs like rice, chicken breast, and greens'.

Then, it's pretty much the same kind of meal all the way until his last one of the day.

The team that whips up his many daily meals will try and switch things up but he's always trying to hit all the macros needed to create a superhero body.

It will depend on protein 'from fish, chicken, steak, or buffalo', as well as 'complex carbs like sweet potatoes, and greens'.

While the thought of chowing down that much food might make people sick, that's just a day in the life of The Rock.

He also admitted to Men's Health that he rarely will eat food just because it tastes good.

So you can kiss goodbye those delicious treats or sweets that you love to eat on a tough day.

Unless it serves a purpose, it's not going into Johnson's mouth.

Dwayne was inspired by what his dad knew about nutrition: "He taught me very early on not to eat to please the tongue but to eat to nourish the body.

"He taught me that when I was five. That’s probably why I need therapy."
