Apart from a grilling session in the gym, Rollins also pays a considerable amount of attention to his diet and lifestyle in general. His philosophy of ‘discipline when necessary and indulgence when appropriate’ has turned him into a widely acclaimed star in WWE.

Seth’s, eat right work right policy, has been quintessential for the success of the Buffalo, Iowa native. 

What he eats: While Rollins is not a picky eater, he is cautious of what he puts inside his body. Despite his vigilant approach, Rollin enjoys a rare decadent meal. A hardcore meat eater, Seth enjoys red meat and claims that he can have it all day.

Seth also avoids fast food chains while being on the road, and wishes for healthier options while he is on his extensive tours.

Here is a video of Seth Rollin appearing on the show called Extreme Weight Loss, to share his secrets with a fan!

During an interview with Men’s Journal, Rollins was asked what would be his choice for a death row meal, to which The Architect replied, that he would have pizza along with ice cream.

"It would be pizza and ice cream, most likely. When I get home off a long week, I go to the gym, have a great workout, and then I go home and order a giant taco pizza with a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. If I were gonna croak tomorrow, that would probably be my go-to."

Supplementation: While Rollins believes that supplements are not a substitute for hard work, he still feels that it is important to have a quick digesting protein and carbohydrate source, after killer workouts. He does not advocate the use of supplements and feels that it is a luxury and an easy way out. 

The patron of hard work believes that real and wholesome food is the way to go. 

“I'm a huge proponent of trying to eat as much real food as possible. I get a lot of questions about, 'I have trouble putting on size. Are there are any supplements I should take?’ I’m like, ‘Dude, you’re probably just not eating enough. If you were really trying to put on size, you'd be ordering a large pizza every night and drizzling it with oil and throw bacon on it.' There is no secret formula for looking how you wanna look. You have to get in the gym and do the work."
