Professional wrestler, actor, and former rapper John Cena is not a fan of the term “cheat day.” Cena thinks calling it cheating gives people a sense of entitlement to eat whatever they want.

Cena says he reaches for potatoes and fried rice or cookies and pies. However, Cena’s favorites are breakfast sweets like french toast and muffins.
