He does have his limits: namely that he will not eat vegetable-based baby food -- to him, the feel of mashed-up veggies is "real baby food." That's nothing new, though -- we all have that mental block about eating baby food, even though it's nothing but mashed-up big people food. You like applesauce and mashed potatoes? Bam, you like baby food. So the next time you need to slash your food bill, don't settle for Ramen saltier than an MRA guy being wrong about anything -- hit up Babies R Us, stock up on Earth's Best, and open up wide because here comes the airplane.
The Rock Eats Over 820 Pounds Of Cod Per Year
He may be a multi-millionaire, but Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson still finds himself constantly on the road -- whether shooting big action films, doing press for said films, hitting local gyms, wrestling once a year and getting more cheers than 90 percent of the full-timers do -- clearly, Rock takes his job as "guy who could pants post-spinach Popeye, give him swirly after swirly, and then stuff him upside-down in a cramped locker" very seriously.
Unlike many roaming celebrities, however, Rock doesn't stay fit and healthy with hired chefs and assistants trolling Whole Foods for organic anything. No, his secret is far more basic and far more terrifying if you've got a sensitive nose and he breathes near you: The Rock eats cod. Pounds upon pounds upon pounds upon pounds of cod. All the damn time. He's like a picky kid who only eats peanut butter sandwiches, if that kid could also rip your legs off and do finger curls with them.

At least now, thanks to him, it's no longer embarrassing to get your ass kicked
by a guy named Dwayne.
If Rock eats seven meals a day, at least four of them contain no less than half a pound of delicious(?) cod. On average, he consumes about 36 ounces of the stuff per day -- that's over two pounds of fish per day, or 820 pounds per year. And unlike a lot of people eating fish, he doesn't dress it up with mayo, cheese, sour cream, or anything else that mercifully doesn't taste like a damn fish. He just grills it up and eats it, clearly cool with the fact that he's probably shat out more fish then there are left in the ocean.
It's what the fish gets for daring to give Rock a bad case of Yucky Mouth.
Obviously, Dwayne "The Gilly Gourmand" Johnson doesn't scarf down thousands of cod calories a day and then sit on his nuts watching Family Feud megathons. He works out like a man possessed (which, let's face it, he probably is), so everything quickly gets burnt and transformed into murder-punch artillery. So if you want to be like The Rock, expect to live in the gym when you're not living on the toilet. Oh, and save your money, because cod's around four bucks a pound if you buy it in bulk. More than $3,200 a year in fish might seem like a lot when you're making Not-Rock money, but it's absolutely doable if you cut corners on other, less necessary expenses. Like paying rent.
