John Cena’s Weight Loss Journey
The fact is that John Cena has lost weight and has done that intentionally. So there’s nothing to be worried about. He wanted to feel “lighter”. However, the weight Cena has lost is not huge either. He has shed 17 pounds. Not a big change for a person who weighs around 114 kgs (251 lbs).
In order to feel lighter, Cena made some changes to his diet as well as to his workout plan. But Given the great scheme of things about his diet plan, these changes weren’t big. Let’s discuss Cena’s diet and workout plans in detail.
Cena’s Diet Plan
Cena cut down his calories consumption from 3600 to 3300 calories. Mindblowing, isn’t it? Normally an adult man requires 2500 calories per day but to have a huge body like John Cena you’ll have to think higher. John Cena’s daily diet comprises a lot of things.
Here’s an insight into it. For breakfast, John eats 4 scrambled eggs, some Swiss cheese, bacon, 6 egg whites, and 2 whole eggs. For lunch, he has 2 chicken breasts, brown rice, and green vegetables salad. And for dinner, Cena goes with Pasta, chicken, sometimes fish as well, and again his favourite green salad.
This might seem very unhealthy diet to you. But it isn’t. Cena has his meals cooked in olive oil. He eats only homemade food. Besides that John’s aggressive workout plan makes this whole diet looks very small.
I would also like to remind you that this diet plan was followed by Cena to lose weight and is slightly different from his old diet plan.

John Cena does a lot of workouts his whole day. He spends hours and hours doing different kinds of workouts. He does work out 5 days of the week from Monday to Friday while leaving the weekend for a good time with his family. The details about Cena’s workout is following:

I am sure that John Cena’s diet and workout plans seem like a lot for a normal person. But that’s what most of the wrestlers do. They have to stay fit and huge to fight and they also need strength to handle the weight of their opponents. I hope that Cena’s diet and workout plans have inspired you.
