Male Athletes’ Cheat Meals
While James does not claim to have the healthiest diet, he does usually stick to a specific balance of foods like lean and low-carb foods.

Specifically, from the company Blaze Pizza, which he has some investment in. James even shared his order on Instagram some years back, showing off a pizza with 16 toppings! No matter the cheat meal, he makes sure he is getting as much as he can.
Ronaldo is very strict on what he puts in his body, only consuming alcohol for special occasions.
