Mark Webster is a mild-mannered average guy living in New York City with his wife. He also has a young daughter, and he wanted to make sure he was still around by the time she grew up. There’s no greater joy for a dad than being able to see his little girl become the strong woman she’s meant to be. But to live to a ripe old age and see that happen, Webster knew he would have to go from scrawny to brawny. In order to achieve this, he decided to eat and work out like one of the fittest guys in Hollywood, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can eat anything he wants, and don’t you dare tell him otherwise, or else.
But despite this massive tower of pancakes in front of him, The Rock sticks to a pretty strict diet and workout routine, which we’ll get into a little later. But could a New York startup founder in his late 30s follow in The Rock’s footsteps?
Once upon a time, when Webster was in his twenties, he used to be in good shape, until he wasn’t.
Like most of us, he started slacking off by the time he was in his 30s. But shortly before his daughter was born in 2014, he had a total meltdown. He was afraid for his life if he continued on this unhealthy path with no direction.
It’s not that Webster looked terrible without his shirt off, but he wasn’t in the best shape possible.
He looked at himself in the mirror when he was 35 and decided he needed to whip himself back into shape. But he knew it wouldn’t be easy. Fortunately, he had a role model to look up to who would become his fitness rock.
Johnson knows how to live by a health code because he used to be a WWE professional wrestler.
Now that he’s a Hollywood actor, he understands that staying in shape opens up more opportunities in his film career. Since his movies are usually action packed, he has to stay fit to meet the challenging demands of his roles. And Webster intended to adopt Johnson’s lifestyle, starting with his meals.
The first thing Webster had to do was to disrupt the food regimen, or lack thereof, he had all these years.
Using information from Johnson’s Instagram and interviews he had done, Webster designed his own workout and meal plan. It became obvious the eating cod was going to become a recurring theme for his seven daily meals each week.
