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

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

Jamie Vardy's route into professional football is anything but normal and so too is the Leicester City striker's matchday diet.

In an in-depth interview with Sky Sports as part of their 'Making it Pro' feature, the former England man revealed he still opts for a crazy caffeine fix prior to games.

He said: "I wake up in the morning and then [have a] Red Bull. Literally I get out of bed, get the kids up and downstairs, get their breakfast sorted and then I'm straight into the Red Bull.

"After that we meet at the stadium for pre-match and while I'm getting changed I'll have a coffee - it's better than taking ProPlus. Red Bull, coffee and then when we get over to the pre-match lounge, I'll have my cheese and ham omelette with another can of Red Bull."

Asked how his stomach is able to process and deal with the caffeine coming his way, Vardy replied: "I think when you've done it for so many years I think it just gets used to it, it's not an issue whatsoever. It's one of them things, it's not going to work for everyone.

"To be fair, I've probably cut back because I'm only on a little can of Red Bull now whereas before when I was at Fleetwood I used to have the big cans of Monster - I used to have two of them as well."

In the past, Vardy's habits included mixing Skittles and vodka, while he also had a thing for drinking port out of a Lucozade bottle.

Writing in his autobiography, Vardy writes: "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."

"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."
