A Compilation of the Top 5 Best Cheat Day Meals from Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

‘Tis the season to stuff your face with food and spend the weekend recovering from your food coma! In honor of the feast that is sure to come, I thought I would honor the person that knows how to do food right—Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. If you haven’t seen his cheat meals, you are not living your best life. Every week, he posts what he eats for his cheat day and I am stunned every time. The sheer volume of food—well, you will just have to see for yourself.

Below is a compilation of the top five best cheat meals Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has ever eaten.


  1. 1. 15 Chocolate Chip Cookies  

    As Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson says, “the insane cheat meal cookie train rolls on.” This cheat meal makes the list because of its enormous size and the fact that there are FIFTEEN of them. I get sugared-out after a couple cookies, so props to him.

  2. 2. Sushi AND Cookies

    Three plates of sushi and four double-stuffed cookies—how could this not make the list? The combination alone is noteworthy. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s cheat day meals look like what I would order if I was out to dinner with my family. Color me impressed (because you know he eats it all, he’s Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson). 

  3. 3. Sushi AND Pancakes

    Another curious combination, but it works! What more do you need besides a plate of sushi and a stack of thick chocolate chip pancakes? This meal makes the third spot because of its boldness to combine what would typically be two separate meals—one for breakfast and one for dinner—into one amazing meal.

  4. 4. The Dessert Train Express

    Brownies, blondies, cookies, and cheesecake! As an avid dessert enthusiast, this meal is what comes to mind when I hear the words “cheat day.” Let us all take a page out of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s book: dessert can be a meal, and it can be a marvelous one like this one!

  5. 5. Sandwiches AND Brownies

    Picking what meal would receive the coveted first place was hard, but I knew this meal had to be it. There are two sandwiches (which are huge) and six fudge brownies (which are also huge). It makes me hungry just looking at this photo. The decadence is astonishing! There is no way this meal couldn’t be the best—the brownies alone would be my cheat meal.

Now, just remember what Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson says “don’t cheat yourself, treat yourself.” Let that mantra follow you into Thanksgiving and right into your second helping!
