MHP followed Classic Physique Athlete Chris Bumstead around LA after the 2017 Olympia to get an inside look into how bodybuilders really eat post show.

MHP athlete Chris Bumstead worked hard for months in preparation for the Mr. Olympia 2017 contest.

All of that hard work paid off when he placed 2nd in the Men’s Classic Physique division.

And to reward himself, Chris enjoyed a 10,000 calorie cheat day 4 days later.

In this video we follow Chris as he indulges in some of his favorite foods.


The first stop on Chris’ cheat day adventure is at IHOP. And he starts off with a Colorado omelet, cupcake pancakes, and a bacon and maple donut.

Chris doesn’t regularly eat like this after a show. Doing so adds on weight too quickly. So, he tries to restrict himself to just one day of cheating. Then, once he gets home he’ll get back on his diet to try to lose any excess water weight before gradually adding calories back in to his regular diet.

Chris’ First Meal at IHOP Macro Breakdown:

  • 2,273 calories
  • 134g of fat
  • 166g of carbs
  • 104g of protein

2. In-N-Out

Next up for Chris is In-N-Out. This is actually Chris’ first trip to In-N-Out. After seeing it all over social media, he had to give it a shot.

Chris orders 2 double doubles without cheese, an order of animal fries, another double double with cheese, a hamburger, and a diet coke.

Chris’ Second Meal at In-N-Out Macro Breakdown:

  • 3,060 calories
  • 184g of fat
  • 210g of carbs
  • 146g of protein

3. Whole Foods

For Chris’ third meal, he tries to go a little cleaner to get some micronutrients in for the day. That mindset leads him outside of Whole Foods.

For meal 3, Chris hits up the burrito bar where he gets Spanish rice, ½ steak ½ chicken, beans, fajita veggies, salsa, cheese and sour cream.

After he’s finished his bowl, Chris heads back in the store for some dessert. Chris snags 2 pints of halo top ice cream and a cheesecake brownie.

Chris’ Third Meal at Whole Foods Macro Breakdown:

  • 1,975 calories
  • 75g of fat
  • 252g of carbs
  • 114g of protein

4. Krispy Kreme

Struggling after eating all of that dairy as an earlier meal, Chris decides to hit up Krispy Kreme as an easy way to down a lot of calories.

Chris orders a Reeses donut, cake batter donut, 2 original glaze donuts, 2 powdered strawberry filled donuts, cinnamon bun donut, blueberry fritter donut, sugar donut, glazed twist donut, and a glazed chocolate cake donut.

Chris’ Fourth Meal at Krispy Kreme Macro Breakdown:

  • 3,150 calories
  • 171g of fat
  • 372g of carbs
  • 44g of protein

Chris’ Total Post-Olympia Cheat Day Macro Breakdown:

  • 10,458 calories

I am a bit skeptical about the long-term consequences of this cheat day. The amount of sugar and sodium is astronomical and may have dangerous affect on the immune system, teeth and arteries—even if you only do it once a week.
