The Rock may not have much time to sleep between shooting major movies like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Baywatch, and Rampage, not to mention his TV work (the HBO series Ballers) and YouTube videos (via his Seven Bucks Productions digital channel). He also, y’know, works out a ton.
Johnson fuels his gains and makes sure he has the size he needs for his film roles by sometimes eating up to 5,000 calories per day. That can change depending on the movie role, but, either way, Johnson is all about eating right and getting the right amount of protein.
Johnson shared one of his favorite meals with his fans on social media, preparing to get a day off for the first time in “weeks.” The superstar actor chowed down on “spinach salad, baked potato, and a big sexy hunk of dead cow.”
Just past midnight. Saturday. DJ time. Spinach salad, baked potato, double shot of tequila, movies on my Mac and a big sexy hunk of dead cow. Been workin’ for weeks without a day off so this Saturday night celebrating my one day off tomorrow (Sunday) was a long time coming. Enjoy your weekend my friends and make sure you’re finding your balance. And dead cow. #DJTime #AwayFromTheMadness #Moo 🥃
