Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will inspire you with his #CheatDay food posts
It’s no secret that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of our favorite celebrity dads. The way he talks about his daughters is the sweetest and the adorable photos he shares give us life. But you know what else he posts that gets our hearts racing?
His diet “cheat day” photos.
Johnson is obviously super into his fitness routine (drool) but everyone deserves a cheat day now and then, and let me tell you, this man does not half-ass it on days where his diet is shoved aside. He revels in the unchecked sugar and caloric intake of the occasional day off from his (probably usually strict) menu by eating all the pancakes he can get into his belly.
So. Many. Pancakes.
Don’t cheat yourself my friends, treat yourself. Also known as Sunday night with a big plate of huge banana chocolate chip pancakes on my lap, while channel surfing, knowing damn well I’ll have the sugar sweats all night til I wake up at 4am to go to work. And yes, that’s a bottle of decadent Canadian maple syrup. Ah the hell with it, get your ass over here gluttony and let me embrace you. #CheatMealSunday
He thinks big.
All my friends went to a very cool, glamorous Hollywood party tonight with lots of pretty people, but who needs that headache, when you can have this party. Huge stack of banana, chocolate chip pancakes. Pure Canadian maple syrup, jar of crunchy peanut butter ready to be slathered all over the cakes and a double shot of tequila on the side. And a great doc on the history of the Irish American Mob. My kinda party #DukeOfTheWestside 🤙🏾🥞🥃🍀
We really can’t emphasize enough how much this man loves pancakes while binge-watching either documentaries or his favorite shows. It’s pretty adorable.
530am and been up all night shooting Ballers, but here’s the fun part. Finally home and have to carb up for my #ProjectRock @underarmour workout photo shoot in a few hours. Dieting for weeks sucks, but the carb up is always good times. Sleep for a few hours then ready to clang and bang. Also catching a great doc on US Senator @corybooker. “Elections are won and lost in the streets”. Yes sir. Carbing up and passed out on this couch like a wounded moose in 38 minutes. 🤙🏾
Cheat day is more or less his religion, and we’re so here for it.
Also, no one can argue with the results.
The best part of his pancake obsession is that Johnson doesn’t mess around when it comes to toppings. He gets kinda food porn-y in his descriptions. “Cue the music,” he writes. “The stuff on the right, I’m gonna smear all over the warm circular stuff in the middle. Then I’ll take the stuff on the left and drizzle it all over the circular stuff in the middle that has the stuff from the right smeared all over it.”
Cue the music. The stuff on the right, I’m gonna smear all over the warm circular stuff in the middle. Then I’ll take the stuff on the left and drizzle it all over the circular stuff in the middle that has the stuff from the right smeared all over it. Then I’ll scroll thru the electronic thing until I find the perfect thing to watch while eating the mound of sugar sin I created. Then I gotta go train legs and put these carbs to good use. #Celebration #JumanjiOpeningDay #InfamousRockPancakes #Sin
We’re getting a little hot over here, Dwayne. And it’s not just because of your mesmerizing pecs.
But he doesn’t stop at pancakes, y’all. The Jumanji star will happily gobble down a platter of cookies too. Like, an entire platter.
He also enjoys a nice, juicy steak with all the sides if sweets aren’t your thing.
Just past midnight. Saturday. DJ time. Spinach salad, baked potato, double shot of tequila, movies on my Mac and a big sexy hunk of dead cow. Been workin' for weeks without a day off so this Saturday night celebrating my one day off tomorrow (Sunday) was a long time coming. Enjoy your weekend my friends and make sure you're finding your balance. And dead cow. #DJTime #AwayFromTheMadness #Moo 🥃
Basically, The Rock is our cheat day life coach and we need to follow his lead. No eating plan will be successful in the longterm if you don’t enjoy yourself now and then, and if you’re going to go for it, you should GO FOR IT. Johnson’s stacks of pancakes and mouth-watering steaks should serve as our inspiration to take cheat day as seriously as we take our day-to-day efforts to eat healthy.
Because we’re worth it.
