Victor Cruz's cheat day is more of a lifestyle than a culinary break. Cheating day means the whole day, no shoes, feet up, out of the way.
And why not? Cruz, the former salsa star receiver of the New York Giants, is done with his game days. At that time, he was an unoccupied UMass player struggling to make a name for himself. He had to eat tight, train hard and drop the chocolate cake and apple pie. However, since retiring before the 2018 season, 32-year-old Cruz is no longer subject to these restrictions.
The man is having fun. Yes, he still trains 3 to 4 days a week, and when training in the gym he trains hard. And he still looks the way it looks, 1
While an average Cruz diet includes an acai breakfast bowl, a turkey loaf for lunch, and a pasta and salad for dinner, cheating is another story altogether.
First, the man sleeps a ton on fraudulent days. He rolls out of bed on fraudulent days at 11am and then goes straight to the kitchen for breakfast. The food is um. , , Cinnamon rolls. And not a role. "I have like six of them," says Cruz.
For lunch, he goes to his favorite restaurant for a vegetarian burger – "not necessarily cheating," Cruz points out. But Cruz more than makes up for his low lunch with his snack: chips, ranch dip, sour cream onion dip, cheese dip.
Dinner is all about Puerto Rican rice and bean dishes. And for dessert Cruz spooned an apple cobbler with not one, but two ice balls. Why two? "Because I'm a grown boy."
And the next day, this adult boy returns to his squats.
