Olivier Giroud might be 34 years, but his performances in the football pitch are certainly still those of someone in his prime.
The Frenchman was on target once again for Chelsea in the Champions League and the Blues will have him to thank for a crucial away goal against Atletico Madrid.
But how does he do it? Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Giroud’s longevity in the game all goes down to his diet.
As the old saying goes, “You are what you eat” and Giroud takes no chances with his diet despite being in the twilight years of his career.
The 6ft4in striker avoids processed foods, sugar and unhealthy oils.
For breakfast, he has an extensive variety to choose from including egg whites, ham, omlettes, or brown toast with scrambled eggs.
When it comes to lunch, the World Cup winner goes for salads mixed with beans salmon and rice, tuna pasta or a combination of baked potato with tuna.
For protein, he mostly enjoys lean meat and fish.
Because of his extremely active lifestyle, Giroud has also made a habit of snacking most of the time in the day.
His high calorie diet can only work its magic when integrated with a workout regimen and Giroud does a good job in burning the extra calories off in the gym.
When he is not training with his Chelsea team at Cobham, Giroud is working himself off with an action-packed routine.
He only allows himself one rest day – on Wednesday.
