Last month we unleashed The Rock’s Herculean daily diet. It’s as absurd as you would expect for a real life superhero with freakish 6’5, 260 LB measurables.
This week, Complex Mag’s Sean Evans—a foolish, unsuspecting mere mortal—took “The Rock’s Diet Challenge” and attempted to churn through 10 pounds of cod, chicken, sweet potatoes, and rice in one day, en route to a silly 5,200 calories in total.
Straight from Sean’s mouth:
“Each meal (and there were SEVEN of them) weighed as much as a Range Rover tire. I’d be forking food into my mouth for five straight minutes, and the plate would look exactly as it did when it was put in front of me. Eating became as psychologically taxing as it was physically painful, but—as someone who can eat a whole frozen pizza like it’s nothing—the volume of food isn’t what derailed me.
You see, not only does The Rock eat A LOT of food, but everything he eats tastes like butt. When Complex asked me to do this project, I kept my aversion to fish a secret which in retrospect was probably a mistake. The Rock eats three pounds of cod on the daily. While I might’ve been able to wolf down one eight-ounce filet Fear Factor-style, it was the featured entree in almost every meal. I knew by 10 a.m. that it was going to be a long, shitty day. I was constantly dreading the next meal, which had as much to do with hating the food as it did with being ridiculously full.”
Let’s just say it went about as well as you’d expect — and in the wrong direction. Respect on you, Sean, either way.
