ROMELU REVEALS WHY HE’S NEVER BEEN STRONGER
Romelu Lukaku has shared his Mediterranean diet of salad, fish, chicken and pasta that has turned him into an Inter Milan superstar.
The 27-year-old admitted he was overweight while at Manchester United due to a digestive problem that has since been corrected in Italy.
The Belgian dropped over a stone upon his arrival in Serie A following a strict diet carefully selected by the Nerazzurri’s medical staff.
Lukaku has already scored 18 league goals this season to spearhead Inter’s title charge and he has put his success down to his new physique.
Speaking in a podcast with Matteo Pincella, the club’s chief nutritionist, the striker revealed that he’s never felt better.
As reported by Sky Sport Italia, via the Mail, he said: “Since I joined Inter I have changed my diet and I can say that I have never felt so strong.
“My diet consists of salads for lunch, a lot of chicken breast, Shirataki pasta.
“I don’t change my way of eating much, for how we play we must have a very strong physique, we run a lot: since I have followed this lifestyle I feel better on the pitch, I feel more reactive and faster.
“I’ve always been an explosive player with muscles but Italy took me to another level. I have never felt so strong. I have reached another level, physically and mentally.”
