Want to bulk up like The Rock? Start by inhaling 5,200 calories a day, more than twice what the normal man eats.

7 meals a day. Over 10 pounds of food. And I would have to assume, many trips to the bathroom….

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson needs a lot of calories a day. 4am workouts, 14 hours a day working on set, he burns up calories like a top fuel dragster goes thru nitro methane. Not to mention anyone that’s 6’5, 260 lbs. has a healthy appetite to begin with.

This is the diet the Hollywood A-lister uses to keep his body looking like Hercules.
