Jack Manchester has been known as “Cheat Day King” because of his insane meals.

In the world of fitness, there are many that opt for a cheat day meal to reward themselves for hard work, both in the gym and following a strict diet. Jack Manchester is a bodybuilder who recently showed off his insane cheat meals that can reach 17,000 calories.

The 29-year-old athlete’s meals have drawn comparisons to those of The Rock. Over the years, Dwayne Johnson has shown off his massive meals when he decides to indulge in a cheat day.

In 2022, The Rock tried In-N-Out for the first time. He chose to go with two double-cheeseburgers and two orders of fries. Johnson is the type of celebrity that can act as an inspiration in the gym because of his work ethic and dedication. What he has also shown is that he can inspire in the kitchen as well. He has also showed off some incredible-looking spreads including pancakes, which is one of his favorite foods.

Manchester took to TikTok to share his full day of eating that consists of 17,000 calories.
