What Does The Rock Eat in a Day? A Constant Flow of Meat

Find out what our Sexiest Man Alive, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, eats in a day

What does it take for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to maintain his 6’5″, 245 lb., muscular body? Meat. So much meat.

Our 2016 Sexiest Man Alive detailed a day of his carnivorous diet for us, and we’re warning vegetarians now — look away!

Along with his meaty diet, Johnson works out five days a week for an hour and 15 minutes a day.

“It’s 20-35 minutes of low-impact cardio, generally on the elliptical. It’s easier on my joints,” he explains. “And then free weights, and I rotate muscle groups.”
