Can You Smell What The Rock Is Cooking? Hint: It’s 821 Pounds of Cod

the rock eats lots of cod

To get as huge as The Rock, you’ve got to work out for hours every day and pump yourself full of lean protein.

So what kid of lean protein does The Rock pump into his body? Well, he recently shared a precise breakdown of his nutrition regimen with Muscle and Fitness. Turns out Dwayne eats seven full meals per day, totalling 5,165 calories, and the main protein at four of them is cod. He eats 10oz in meal one, 8oz in meal two, 8oz in meal four, and 10oz in meal six.

That works out to two-and-a-quarter pounds of cod every single day, which in turn works out to 821 pounds of cod per year. So according to the math geniuses at Five Thirty-Eight, depending on whether he buys his cod wholesale or whether he just clears out the fish case at Trader Joes every day, The Rock is spending between $1,400 and $3,275 on cod per year.

However, you want to quantify it, that’s a lot of fish. When cod go extinct, we’ll know who to blame.
