In his latest video, fitness YouTuber Aseel Soueid spends the day following the meal plan used by WWE legend turned movie star, John Cena. Soueid’s previous diet challenges have seen him eating like swole stars such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mark Wahlberg and Ronnie Coleman, but this might just be the blandest, bro-est menu he’s tackled so far.
The first meal is an omelet made with 6 egg whites and 2 whole eggs, and oatmeal with raisins. In other words, a simple bodybuilding mainstay, with just a little bit of flavor courtesy of the apple sauce that Cena likes to eat with his breakfast.
Then, after a chocolate protein bar, it’s time for the pre-workout meal of chicken breast, brown rice and mixed vegetables. “This is pretty much the WWE staple,” says Soeuid. “Sometimes a good old bro meal is all you need.”
Cena’s go-to post-workout meal turns out to be the bleakest, flavor-wise, of the day so far: an entire can of tuna in a pita bread. “I can’t do this, there’s no way,” Soueid says around mouthfuls. “I literally want to throw up… The whole apartment smells so bad. If you have a date, don’t ever eat tuna. It’s a death sentence.”
He’s able to get rid of the aftertaste by downing a smoothie made with vanilla whey protein, 1 banana, and almond milk, before the evening meal, which is—you guessed it—even more chicken breast, brown rice and veggies, with some pasta this time. “It’s definitely a hearty meal,” he says. “It’s very high carb, lots of protein.”

His seventh and final meal is low fat cottage cheese with a scoop of protein powder, bringing his food intake for the day to a total of 3,613 calories, consisting of 448 grams of carbs, 289 grams of protein, and 63 grams of fat.
Soueid’s verdict? “I am very full. I feel like I need to go use the bathroom.”
