    You do know he's also on PED's? Gear makes a big difference for someone if they are also in great shape. He's also big a hell. 6'4 and 260lbs. The standard BMR for maintenance for someone of that stature is about 2400 calories. So betting his TDEE is around 4200.

    And you know this how? How do you know that he is on PED?

    You're joking, right? Look at pictures when he wrestled and now. No one is saying he doesn't work hard.. he busts his *kitten*. But 6'4, 260, all muscle... come on now.

    Lets compare from when was on the road all the time vs now.
    Now he has the time to eat right, and to work out more than 4 hours a day? compared to when he was always traveling. He dosn't have an 8- 5 type of job. He always has 6 months off.
    I think he has more time to work out.
    Are you also suggesting that Hugh Jackman also take PED for the Xmen films. Compare Xmen or Xmen orgins vs The Wolverine

    I'd say it's a damn good possibility he is. He's cool and all, he works hard, but it is a possibility.

    Just read that Johnson eats 5000 calories a day and it seems he only does cardio for an hour and weights for 90 minutes.

    How the frick is he not a blob? I mean I expected that he'd being eating more calories than normal but 5000? During a bulking cycle but still wow. Crazy. This article must be inaccurate or not decribe the full picture.

    Thoughts? How does one get even close to that? His grocery bill must be huge!

    He's 6.5" and like 240lbs of muscle, requires more fuel to move a truck then it does to move a Civic. Also with his "supplementation" your body plows through fuel.

    YES! I'm not judging him, though I still think the Rock and Jackman are awesome. But do you honestly believe they aren't taking exongenous drugs??? 6'4, 260lbs of muscle is WELL beyond the established limits of a natural. If you really think just eating right and working out more is what it takes, then I have a unicorn to sell you...

    I would venture to guess that most ripped actors, elite athletes in damn near all sports are on PEDs. They are becoming readily available, most people know they aren't dangerous if done right, and are even being sold as "age reversal" type medical treatments.

    My husband who's only 5'9" 170 lbs has to eat 4000+ calories per day in order to gain 1/2 - 1 lb per week. The Rock surely would have to eat more than that to gain so, yeah, that's not too surprising. Must be nice.

    Funny how people don't realize the widespread use of PED.

    Who cares if he's on PED's what the big deal? Its his body and he's not breaking any records to hurt other peoples accomplishments I say live your life and do your best and he clearly is doing just that!! Even on PED's you have to work out extremely hard and eat a ton of food. I once heard a baseball player say even on steroids you still have to hit a ball moving at 100+ mph.

    Nobody cares if he's on them, but it would increase his metabolism and require he eat significantly more than others with similar stats.

    Oh yeah, no. He's a very tall muscular guy. I mean all the props in the world to him. It's just a bit shocking.

    why? I was gaining only a half pound at 3150 a day ...and I am 5-10 and was 176 at the time ...

    not hard to believe that a 6-5 active guy at 260 would need 4K a day to maintain on ...

    PED discussion aside, 5,000 a day sounds about right with his specs.

    Oh and just because...

    If the OP is freaked out about 5,000 calories...then what Shaq must eat really bake his noodles.

    Haha.. You're probably right. Let me lie down for a minute before you tell me Shaq's diet.

    Reading comprehension? Did anyone pass judgement or say he doesn't work hard?
