Jamie Vardy's Old Pre-Match Diet Is The Stuff Of Champions

Jamie Vardy's Old Pre-Match Diet Is The Stuff Of Champions

Jamie Vardy is currently the Premier League's top scorer so it's worth remembering his former pre-match diet.

Vardy is now 32 but goes from strength to strength and he's netted 16 goals in as many games for Leicester City this season.

It's got Leicester dreaming of Premier League glory after their historic 2016 title win and Vardy's diet during that period received lots of attention.

The former England man's autobiography revealed his bizarre diet which includes multiple cans of Red Bull and a glass of port in the evening.

"With a traditional 3pm Saturday kick-off, I'll have a can of Red Bull as soon as I wake up, which is gone in 30 seconds.

"I don't have breakfast and won't eat anything until I have a cheese-and-ham omelette with baked beans at 11.30am. I wash that down with another Red Bull, which I also neck quickly.

"We get into the dressing room an hour and a half before kick-off, and I'll have a third can of Red Bull straight away."

He also discussed the port and why he drinks it out of a Lucozade bottle.

Jamie Vardy Wanted To Quit Leicester City And Become A Party Rep In Ibiza

"I can't say why it started, because I genuinely don't know, but I decided to drink a glass of port on the eve of every game in the 2015-16 season.

"I'm not normally superstitious but from the moment I scored against Sunderland on the opening day, I didn't want to change anything."

Jamie Vardy's Pre-Match Diet Is Still Next Level

published ata year ago

"I fill a small plastic water or Lucozade bottle to halfway and just sip the port while watching television. It tastes like Ribena to me, and it helps me switch off and get to sleep a bit easier the night before a game."

His diet has changed since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers earlier this year as the Foxes coach has reinvented the striker.

Gone is the endless harassing of opposition central defenders and in it's place is a much more considered, astute Vardy.

Rodgers said before Leicester's 4-1 victory over Aston Villa this weekend:

"He's an incredible talent who has all the attributes that big teams look for in their profile of a striker - fast and hard working.

"Through all my days, that's the profile of player I like too. Coming into here, I knew he was one of the best in Europe, and it was a case of giving him the confidence to show that.

"Sometimes players can get into their early 30s and be written off. But in seeing his energy and speed, it was a case of him fitting into how we wanted to work, which I felt would be fairly easy."
