Food for champions

ANTHONY JOSHUA HAS REVEALED THE DIET THAT CONTRIBUTED TO MAKING HIM WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION

Every award winning athlete has a physique that can only be tagged "GOALS". I mean look at Serena Williams whose 20 weeks pregnancy tummy looks like an average food belly, come on! To be a titled athlete, it is therefore evident that there's something you gotta give. In an interview with SkySport, Anthony shared some tips on his diet and how it has and is playing an undeniable role in his title claim. 

BREAKFAST: Joshua posted this video of a monster breakfast including beans, eggs, brown bread and a protein shake on Twitter which came to more than 1,000 calories. But he told Sky Sports his latest power-packed breakfast consisted of egg, rice, chicken, avocado, bread, a fruit juice.

LUNCH: His carbs come from rice and noodles and then a side of fibre-rich vegetables.

DINNER: 

First he has lean meat, along with pounded yam, stew and okra. Joshua told Sky Sports that pounded yam, a Nigerian staple food, is one of his key training foods which is packed with slow-burning-complex carbohydrate and fibre. "It just keeps you strong," he says. "It's a dense form of mash potato. If you eat that enough and you train then it's a big carb load." Later he has another round of rice, salmon and noodles.

Oh and by the way, he is Nigerian just in case you don't know! Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, MBE is a British professional boxer. He is currently a unified world heavyweight champion, having held the IBF title since 2016, and the WBA and IBO titles since April 2017.
