Cristiano Ronaldo has kept his body in top shape to continue playing at the most significant level far into his 40s. However, he has been known to eat “a little bit of everything” in certain situations. Jose Fonte, a Portugal international who won Euro 2016 and the first Nations League event alongside the Manchester United star, agrees.
Since his return to the Premier League, Ronaldo has made an immediate impact, scoring 74 goals in 89 games for his nation.
Many people want to know the secrets to his longevity. So those who wish to be like him would be happy to learn that he occasionally eats a high-calorie lunch. When asked if Ronaldo’s behaviors had an impact on people around him, Fonte told talkSPORT: “One hundred percent.” We keep an eye on what he eats and does at all times.
“You know he’s the best, and you want to do what he’s doing because he’s doing something right.”
“He eats nice and clean regularly, you know, lovely quinoas and all that healthy things… He eats a lot of eggs, sweet potatoes, and broccoli.”
“I’ve seen him eating a little bit of everything,” Fonte said when asked if Ronaldo would eat steak and chips after a game.
This occurred after Lee Grant, a United teammate, stated in September: “The atmosphere [at the club] is lovely, but when it comes to his actual effect, what I’ve noticed is that the top players want to play with the leading players.
“That’s the group with whom they have the most fun. To a man, everyone in the group is delighted. And I can’t express how happy everyone is to have Cristiano in the squad.
“I’ll give you an example of his influence on the group right now. As you’re probably aware, Friday night in the hotel, you complete your meal. And you generally have a few cheat items out on a Friday night.
“Desserts include an apple crumble with custard or a brownie with cream.
“I can tell you right now that no one touched the apple crumble or custard. Nobody wanted the brownie since everyone was seated at our table for pre-match. And one of the players immediately said, “What’s Cristiano got on his plate?”
