The Legend Killer. The Viper. WWE's Apex Predator. Randy Orton, son of WWE legend "Cowboy" Bob Orton, has a number of honorifics. He also boasts three World Heavyweight Championships and six WWE championships as of September 2011. Regardless of how you feel about professional wrestling, Orton has an impressive physique. One way he maintains that is through diet.

Carbs

Orton doesn't do low-carb or no-carb. Rather, he tries to avoid eating carbohydrates after 8 p.m. While he does limit his carbohydrate intake, the carbs he prefers -- potatoes, pancakes and oatmeal -- can hardly be said to be low-carb. Pancakes in particular are an interesting choice, as they are often served with syrup, but there's no word on whether Orton puts this on his breakfast.

Protein

Orton tries to get 250 grams of protein in his diet every day. This isn't an arbitrary number. As Orton weighs in at 250 pounds, he's trying to consume 1 gram of protein for every pound of his body weight every day. The majority of this -- 60 percent -- comes from supplements such as meal replacement bars and protein powder. When eating food, Orton gets his protein from egg whites, meat and cottage cheese and treats himself to sushi three times per week.

Junk Food

Orton concedes that it can be very hard to eat right while on the road. As professional wrestlers do a lot of traveling, this must make keeping to his diet challenging. Orton, however, eschews junk food in all forms. He even prefers natural carbs to processed carbs. He also prefers protein to come from natural sources, even when he is getting it from a supplement. When taking a supplement, Orton uses only legal supplements.

Training

Orton's diet is designed for one purpose: to aid in his training. His training regimen targets one of five different muscle groups one time each week. He works his muscles to the point of fatigue for optimal muscle growth. Three days every week Orton does some cardiovascular exercise for half an hour. All workouts begin with proper stretching to protect against injury.
