Over the weekend, I spent some time with a friend and we started to talk about the new TV show, "Lip Sync Battle," and the performance by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson -- which was great! But I noticed that The Rock looked even more buff than usual.

What I saw was the result of a protein-abundant daily diet that he has been following since he has been getting ready for the role of Hercules. I found an interview with The Rock and get ready for this: It's been estimated by the online magazine FiveThirtyEight.com that Johnson consumes over 5,000 calories a day! If that isn't enough, The Rock eats 2.3 pounds of cod -- roughly 1,000 calories a day in cod alone. If you broke it down to a year of eating cod, that would be about 821 pounds of cod per year. Whew!

Here, courtesy of Muscle and Fitness, is The Rock's daily meal smack-down:

Meal 1
• 10 oz cod
• 2 whole eggs
• 2 cups oatmeal

Meal 2
• 8 oz cod
• 12 oz sweet potato
• 1 cup veggies

Meal 3
• 8 oz chicken
• 2 cups white rice
• 1 cup veggies

Meal 4
• 8 oz cod
• 2 cups rice
• 1 cup veggies
• 1 tbsp fish oil

Meal 5
• 8 oz steak
• 12 oz baked potato
• spinach salad

Meal 6
• 10 oz cod
• 2 cups rice
• salad

Meal 7
• 30 grams casein protein
• 10 egg-white omelet
• 1 cup veggies (onions, peppers, mushrooms)
• 1 tbsp omega-3 fish oil

Notes:
"I do cardio 4-5 a.m., then take 4-6 scoops of Optimum’s Amino Energy."
"After cardio I eat breakfast [Meal No. 1]."After breakfast I hit the iron for 90 minutes."
"Post-workout I have 60 grams Optimum Nutrition’s Platinum Hydrowhey with 15 grams of glutamine."
"Thirty minutes later I consume 32 oz of Gatorade."

Well, I guess the pictures say a lot! Maybe enough to get me motivated again to get back to where I was a few years ago.
