In order to get as jacked as John Cena you’re going to need to eat for mass gain.
Have you ever heard: you need to eat big to get big?
Well, that’s what we’re talking about in this article.
We’ve already seen our original John Cena Workout Routine and Diet Plan article, but now I’m going to zoom in on Cena’s diet (and he shared a lot of it; specifics and all) so we can have a clearer take on it and have it added within our new(ish) Celeb Diet Database.
We recently saw a handful of athletes like Maria Sharapova’s Diet Plan, Carli Lloyd’s Diet Plan, Deontay Wilder’s Workout and even Abby Johnston’s Diet Plan – and I think Cena fits in with this group as well – although in his own grouping specifically working to tack on muscle mass while also performing at a high level.
If that’s not clear you can also check out our article about The Four Key Components of Your Transformation, or read through articles within our Nutrition Pillars – as well as step it up a notch and utilize our SHJ Nutrition System.
If you’ve been a part of The SHJ Army for a while you may be familiar with the fact that I like to utilize an easy 14-18 hour variation of intermittent fasting to control hunger levels.
Well, John Cena does NOT do that, and is eating all day long to pack in a ton of food.
We’ve also seen Hugh Jackman bulk up WITH intermittent fasting (eating upwards of 5,000+ calories within a very small window), but it’s normally going to be easier to eat more within a bigger window (if that’s not obvious).
Cena shared SEVEN meals throughout the duration of his typical day if you include his second meal which is a protein bar.
He gets tons and tons of protein, but it’s also pretty clean and the food isn’t super calorically dense, while still having a lot of vegetables and health-first choices as well.
I’ll break down the entire full day of eating a bit more below.
