Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wakes up incredibly early and works out more than the average human being. To keep his body fueled through a long day of workouts, movie shoots, press appearances, and the occasional wrestling match, The Rock eats an insane amount of food. To prepare for the title role in 2014’s “Hercules,” Johnson ate seven large meals every day for six months. The estimated daily calorie count? 5,470 calories, according to Wolfram Alpha. Here’s the breakdown:
Meal 1 (857 calories): 10 oz. filet, 4 egg whites, 5 oz. oatmeal or Cream of Wheat
Meal 2 (947 calories): 8 oz. chicken, 2 cups white rice, 1 cup broccoli
Meal 3 (946 calories): 8 oz. halibut, 2 cups white rice, 1 cup asparagus

#FACTS The Rock wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and join professional wrestling. Initially his father was against it but then decided to train him himself.
The Wrestling seemed to run in the family as most of his non-blood relatives were famous professional wrestlers including his cousins Solofa (Rikishi), Rodney (Yokozuna), Eddie (Umaga) and his uncles Afa and Sika Anoai ( The Wild Samoans).
