The highest paid actor in Hollywood, Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’, before becoming an actor became famous for his good role as an American wrestling star. His father was also a figure in the ring and gave him advice from a very young age to succeed; Some of that advice, according to The Rock, traumatized him for life, although for the better…
In an interview with Men’s Health US, while discussing his diet and training routine, Dwayne Johnson recalled how he learned certain things from his father as a child. Joking about how the knowledge traumatized him and led him to even seek therapy so he wouldn’t obsess too much.
While talking about the details of his diet plan, the actor recalled how he learned most things from his father, who was a professional wrestling champion. “I am a type of habits since I was young. Like my father did, one day after another the same thing,” he reveals.
Discipline, diet, training and protein
“I’m extremely disciplined, and that’s something I inherited from my old man, who was a fan of the gym,” admits The Rock. “He taught me very early, not to eat to please the tongue, but to eat to nourish the body. He taught me that when I was 5 years old. That’s probably why I need therapy now,” Johnson jokes.
When talking about what you eat to maintain your muscles, he singled out protein. “I eat six meals a day. Breakfast consists of eggs, a meat like bison, a complex carbohydrate like oatmeal, and fruit, usually papaya or blueberries.”
“My second meal, around 10:00 a.m., usually consists of a chicken breast, a complex carbohydrate like rice, and some vegetables. And dinner is either fish or chicken, a complex carbohydrate like sweet potatoes, and some vegetables. When I adjust the macros and I achieve my goals quickly, and without starving.”
“Training and dieting for a goal requires discipline, and you can often feel hungry, although it is not the case for me as I say, he concludes.
