In addition to hard training, a scientific diet is also one of the factors that help the Portuguese superstar maintain his health at the best level.
At the age of 37, Cristiano Ronaldo is still playing at the highest level with Manchester United. According to Insider , CR7 eats up to 6 meals (2 breakfast, 2 lunch and 2 dinner) in a day with a total energy intake of about 3,200 calories. This mode has been maintained by him for many years.
The Portuguese captain’s first breakfast consisted of ham, cheese and yoghurts. After the training session, CR7 will have an extra breakfast in the morning consisting of bread and butter.
Ronaldo’s next meal usually starts at 2pm. The first meal is chicken salad, the second meal is usually fish, eggs and salad.
Cod is Ronaldo’s favorite food. You can eat this directly with bread. At the 2014 World Cup, the Portuguese team’s logistics team had to bring 200 kg of cod from his home country to Brazil just to serve the hobby of Ronaldo and the “Seleccao” stars.
Cod continued to appear in two of Ronaldo’s dinners. However, the Portuguese striker also added two dishes to change, including tuna and beef.
To implement this strict diet, Ronaldo was forced to hire a personal chef. When he returned to Manchester United in the summer of 2021, the 37-year-old striker also changed some of the habits of his teammates at Old Trafford. Foods containing a lot of sugar and fat (donuts, french fries…) are restricted in the cantine of “Red Devils”.
Besides, Ronaldo also loaded a large amount of minerals and vitamins from drinking filtered water, fruit juice. With CR7, carbonated soft drinks or alcoholic beverages are taboo. At EURO 2020, he did not hesitate to remove the sponsor’s soft drink bottles from the press conference table with the advice “Drink water”.
