YouTuber Aseel Soueid has made several videos where he tries recreating the healthy diets of giants like Arnold Schwarzenegger and LeBron James, but in his latest he takes on the meal plan of the movie star with the most infamously rigorous daily routine out there: Mark Wahlberg.
While Soueid skips the 2 a.m. wake-up call and workouts, focusing solely on the food portion of Wahlberg’s Pain and Gain-era schedule, that still includes no fewer than 6 protein-packed meals in a single day, totaling more than 4,100 calories.
Meal #1 consists of 4 fried eggs and a bowl of oatmeal with blueberries and peanut butter, which Soueid wolfs down before moving on immediately to the next meal. “There’s a lot of calories to get through, so I’m just going to pick up the pace,” he says.
Meal #2 is 3 turkey patties, a baked potato, and a whey protein shake with vanilla almond milk. “These are definitely no Wahlburgers,” he admits, “but they’ll do the job.” And there is so much more ground turkey to come. For meal #3, which is Wahlberg’s pre-workout meal, Soueid prepares a 9-ounce serving of turkey meatballs.
After the gym, it’s time for meal #4: a Cobb salad with 8 ounces of cooked chicken breast, 2 boiled eggs, a whole avocado, tomato, cucumber, leaves, and olive oil—and it turns out to be his favorite of the protein-rich dishes. “I’m not gonna lie, this is amazing,” he says.

Not long after, Soueil sits down for meal#5, a 12-ounce sirloin steak with seared green peppers. “I can’t believe I’m starting to get a pump right now from nothing but pure protein and fats,” he says, before promptly moving on to the sixth and final meal, skinless chicken breast and steamed broccoli.
“My stomach is literally in pain right now, there’s so much protein in here,” he says. “I don’t think I can eat chicken or steak for a very long time. Heck, I might go plant-based.”
