Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson reveals his new cheat meal, inspired by Emily Blunt
I don't know about you, but I don't know if I could handle life as pro-wrestler, movie star and fanny pack model Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Although he's far and away the most bankable action we've got in the world today, I don't think I could handle the scrutiny and pressure that comes with such fame, nor could I stomach starring in Skyscraper.
Not only are people asking him for selfies, workout tips and whether he'll run for president in 2020, but there are people like me, who are interested in one thing in particular concerning the life of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. To paraphase a timeless 90s catchphrase: "Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?"
No, but thanks to his extensive social media presence, we can definitely see. Unsurprisingly for someone of such incredible bulk and beef, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has to adhere to a very strict diet to keep himself in shape. But when he allows himself a cheat day, The Rock allows himself a cheat day, if you smell what I'm cookin'.
At this point, we're pretty accustomed to hearing how The Rock eats enormous stacks of pancakes, apple pies, loaves of French toast or anything else which would probably kill mere mortals like you or I, in the sheer volume that the Jumanji and Moana star chows down on.
But on his Instagram page, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson recently shared with us his new cheat meal. It's very different to what we're used to, and it's apparently inspired by none other than Emily Blunt. At the moment, they're filming the Disney film Jungle Cruise together, and she's given the big man a few pointers for his cheat meal.
Armed with three full plates of sushi, a plate of cookies and enough soy sauce for maximum enjoyment, Johnson explains in his post that no matter where he is in the world (in this post, he's in London), the "Sunday Sushi Train" continues to roll on.
"Shout to my ace/partner in crime, Emily Blunt for the soosh recommendation," says Johnson about his new co-star, though he doesn't go as far as to explain exactly how she talked him into it.
Rounding things off with his "signature double stuffed chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies with real peanut butter in the middle", it'd be easy to assume that the Rock has dialled back on his cheat meals. But if you've ever tried eating that much sushi in one sitting and lived to tell the tale, please let me know.
What this new cheat meal lacks in sheer volume and calories, it more than makes up for it in nutritional value; rice - brown rice in particular - is great for regulating your blood sugar levels and keeping you full for longer. Salmon is rich in Omega 3, protein and vitamin B, helping you to lower your risk of heart disease and possibly cancer, too.
All in all, if you're used to inhuman feats of eating from Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, you might be a little disappointed at this sushi haul. But if you're disappointed in him, I dare you to say it to his face.
