“I am a creature of habit when it comes to food. I usually eat the same thing every day for days and weeks and months. It’s very consistent, it’s boring and it’s also very disciplined. I picked this up from my old man (father Rocky Johnson), who was a hardcore gym fanatic. He was the first professional wrestler who had a bodybuilder’s body.”

“Well, I eat six meals a day [and they’re all similar in terms of nutrients]. Breakfast consists of eggs, meat like bison, a complex carb like oatmeal, and fruit, usually either papaya or blueberries. My second meal, around 10:00 A.m., usually consists of a chicken breast, a complex carb like rice, and some greens. And dinner is fish or chicken, a complex carb like sweet potatoes, and some greens.”
In the case of macro counting, The Rock explained that he keeps track of his food intake. Johnson said,
“I do see results quickly when we adjust the macros. [The range: protein 40–45 percent, carbs 40–50 percent, fats 15–20 percent.] We’ve got it down to a science where we fine-tune the macros and I never feel hungry. That’s a key: Training and dieting down for a goal requires discipline, and you can often feel hungry.”
