What does The Rock eat?

July 02, 2013

I have many obsessions.  Some may call them nerdy, sick and I guess that’s true.  Moving a barbell, Batman’s history, Star Wars, video games, are among the things I have dumped thousands of dollars and countless hours.  Pretty high on my nerd list is professional wrestling.

My brother Rob and I were high school wrestlers and we actually flirted with going to a wrestling school in the late 90’s during the days of Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock.  I saw King Kong Bundy “break” Hulk Hogan’s ribs before Wrestlemania II in like, 1985 and I’ve been hooked ever since.  I came back to it hard in the 90’s – I watched Stone Col’s rise and I saw the Rock show up as a mid-card baby face that everyone hated.  I haven’t really watched since 2001, but it still sticks with me (although if I was still watching today, I’d be a CM Punk guy).  I find myself watching old wrestling videos on Netflix all the time – I think Alison hates this.  Check that, I know she hates this.

What does professional wrestling have to do with CrossFit?  Nothing really.  But I found this list on a CrossFit related site (Power Athlete HQ).  The link I’ve attached is what The Rock (who is, in my opinion right up there with Ric Flair, Steve Austin and Hogan as the greatest wrestlers of all time) eats on a daily basis.  The Rock is a huge movie star now, but he looks like a behemoth.  I would imagine he’s pretty strong.  Before you start mirroring the Rock’s diet (I’m looking at you Nick), please remember he’s eating to look big and strong on the movie screen, not move a barbell fast or do Murph with a 20# vest.
