For such a strict diet, The Rock’s breakfast is A LOT of food. “Remember, diet is the key,” he says.
The Rock has one of the most perfect physiques that we have ever seen. We often find ourselves wondering how he can possibly maintain it.
Now, he is providing us with the chance to take a closer look at how he stays so fit. It sounds a lot better than we could have ever thought, too. He shared his diet for the upcoming film, Black Adam, on his Instagram page earlier this week, in fact.
“Aloha, my friends. Here’s my Saturday breakfast as we dial it. I’m…One month away from shooting #blackadam so the diet is very strict and all food is weighed & measured so my conditioning can come in on point,” he shared. The clip is almost three minutes long and is filled with all sorts of revelations that we never could have expected.
“This prep has been a long one (since 2020) but all the pieces are coming together, and, as always, I’m staying flexible to any changes and pivots that need to happen along the way. Script, production, strength & conditioning, diet, etc., etc. Enjoy the weekend with your families and remember, diet is the key,” he added. It is definitely easier said than done, though, that is for sure.
When it comes time for him to prepare for a movie, he takes care of all aspects. He says that his preparation process for this particular role is focused on “strength, conditioning, character, and story study,” which makes all of the sense in the world. It’s not just about looking good, it’s about being able to convey the emotions that the story needs in order to truly connect with viewers at home (or in theaters).
The breakfast that the Rock shows off seems far more satisfying than we thought it would be. We figured that he would be making all types of sacrifices to get in shape. While he’s certainly not going to be eating Pop-Tarts or Toaster Strudels, his breakfast still looks tasty. He’s got whole eggs and egg whites, beef tenderloin, gluten-free Ezekiel muffins, a bowl of oatmeal with blueberries, a bottle of powdered greens, and a can of ZOA Energy Drink (sugar-free, of course).
He was also sure to thank fans for having patience with the delays of the new film. It was supposed to have come out much earlier, but COVID-19 restrictions put the kibosh on that.SKM: below-content placeholder
