Dwayne Johnson’s Meal Plan for Hercules Role


Dwayne Johnson

I've written about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's cheat meals and workouts in the past. I am a fan and so are millions of other people who follow the actor/wrestler on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. His lucky fans get a glimpse into his life as he often posts pictures and video clips of his workouts, as well as what he eats when in training or how he goes all out when it's time for a cheat meal. He is on location in Budapest for his most recent movie role as Hercules. Most recently he has posted photos as well as videos of his training sessions in the gym. He is all about focus and determination.

The Rock's Hercules Meal Plan

I've always found it interesting to find out what celebrities eat to achieve their physiques for specific movie roles. It isn't easy and although they may hire nutritionists and fitness trainers, they still have to do the work themselves. Dwayne Johnson posted his Hercules eating plan on twitter which he titled: "The 12 Labors Diet." Here are the details:

Meal 1:

  • 10 oz. filet with 4 egg whites
  • 5 oz. oatmeal or Cream of Wheat (measured dry)

Meal 2:

  • 8 oz. chicken
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 1 cup broccoli

Meal 3:

  • 8 oz. halibut
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 1 cup asparagus

Meal 4

  • 8 oz. chicken
  • 12 oz. baked potato
  • 1 cup broccoli

Meal 5

  • 8 oz. halibut
  • 1.5 cups white rice
  • 1 cup asparagus

Meal 6

  • 8 oz. filet
  • 9 oz. baked potato with salad

Meal 7

  • 30 grams casein protein
  • 10 egg whites scrambled with onions, peppers & mushrooms

Looking at that diet shows how clean his meals are. It is a very common bodybuilder type of meal plan. Anyone who is attempting to lower their body fat percentage and/or lose weight will have a similar meal plan. However, it is no wonder why he goes all out for his cheat meals. Having a cheat meal of pancakes, pizza, and brownies is a nice break when you eat clean 95% of the time.
