    Cristiano Ronaldo, commonly known as CR7, is one of the most skillful soccer players of the modern era. The 32-year-old Portuguese superstar has immense love for fitness, which combined with his crazy work ethic has produced his incredibly athletic physique. Even though his body is leaner than a typical fitness model or bodybuilder, it is still worthy to be amazed at or aspire to. Besides long and intense team practices and footwork training, Cristiano focuses on improving his strength, stamina, speed, and functional movements.

    Even if you have an efficient workout routine, it will not work well unless you blend it with a proper diet plan. The Real Madrid forward is aware of this fact and he pays attention to the kind of food he takes. Here we share the principles of his diet:

    Meal frequency: The daily food intake is divided into 6 smaller meals separated by a period of 2-4 hours. This helps to control his body’s metabolism
    A diet with sufficient quantity of protein: His diet comprises plenty of lean meat as high protein intake is necessary for muscle repair
    Supplements for recovery: Protein shakes, joint supplements, multi-vitamins
    Enough vegetables: Since vegetables have lots of minerals and vitamins, they are needed for recovery
    Sugary foods are avoided: Foods and drinks with high sugar content cause accumulation of fat and slows down metabolism

    Breakfast: Whole-wheat or whole-grain cereal, egg whites, fruit juice
    Lunch: Whole-wheat pasta, green vegetables, baked potato, chicken with salad
    Snack: Tuna roll with fruit juice/lemon juice
    Dinner: Rice with pulses, chicken or turkey breasts, beans, and fruits
