• Roman Reigns Reveals His Diet, His Cheat Meal After Defeating John Cena
During a recent interview with Men’s Health, Universal Champion Roman Reigns talked about the diet he takes to stay in top shape.
Below are the highlights:
On his daily diet:
“In the morning, it’s either some oats or a cream of rice with some egg whites. We throw some beets in there to help blood flow, and to drive the workouts for each day.
And then once we get into the standard meals, I mean, it’s chicken and rice, steak and rice — the stuff you’ve heard before on any vlog of any bodybuilder. Nothing sexy at all. Maybe some bison.
We’ve taken down the fats a little, so most of my fats come through the animal fat, through my protein. And then maybe a little almond butter at night with a protein shake before bed.
I wish it was something different and more creative, but it’s best to keep it simple. That way, you can fully understand that nutrition — what’s going in and what’s coming out — and how it affects you.”
On the cheat meal he ate after defeating John Cena:
“After SummerSlam, I had three pizzas waiting. You know, depending on where we are and what kind of cheat meals you can get into and what’s available, you can go nuts.”
On why he didn’t eat a cheat meal after defeating Bobby Lashley & WWE Champion Big E in a Triple Threat Match on RAW:
“It depends on what the goal at hand is. Knowing that I had Extreme Rules coming up on Sunday, I stuck to some of my cleaner meals.
It was like a poke bowl without all the really, really good stuff on it — essentially just rice, ahi tuna, some avocado and some cucumber, with a little bit of like soy sauce in there.
So it wasn’t anything crazy, and it wasn’t anything off the beaten path of eating clean. But I did have a couple beers to relax.”
