14. Dolph Ziggler
Weight: 218 pounds
Ziggler has one of the more interesting diets in WWE, what he calls the 70/30 plan: 70 percent of the time he eats moderately healthy, 30 percent he chows down on anything he wants. He’s proud that he’ll never be the guy weighing turkey slices and counting calories — he says he relies on instinctively knowing what’s good and what’s bad for him. Ziggler is in the gym at least six days a week, often for an intense workout that involves a combination of cardio and weights. He’ll first jump on the treadmill or elliptical to get his body moving, then gets to pumping iron.
Room for Improvement: “The concept of a more relaxed diet is a good one, and it’s what you do most of the time that plays the largest role in your health and performance,” says nutritionist Susan Kleiner. “The only downside is that if he eats one of his 30 percent meals right before a match, his performance might be only 30 percent what it could have been. He should make sure that his pre-match meals are as healthy as possible.”Back to top
