Robert Lewandowski reveals his unusual eating habit to stay fit
Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has an unusual method of eating food. He starts his full course meal with a dessert and ends it with a starter. The Polish international told France Football that he does this because it’s healthier.
According to the forward, eating his meals backward helps him burn fat faster and he claims he feels more energetic as well since he started the practice. He will need all the energy he can get since he will be facing a very hardworking Atletico Madrid side.
Lewandowski says his teammates are unable to understand the reasoning behind his unusual habits. “They still don't understand," Lewandowski told France Football. “They shake their heads when they see me finishing with some soup.”
The 27-year-old has also cut out all forms of dairy products and other fattening substances from his diet in an effort to stay at the top level of fitness.The change in eating habit has only come in the last few months. Pep Guardiola won’t care as long as he keeps scoring at the rate he has been for them.
We have to be careful against Atletico: Lewandowski
Lewandowski had an exclusive interview with UEFA.com earlier in the week where he spoke about the challenge that lies ahead for Bayern Munich in the Champions League. The striker called for caution against Atletico saying, “They have the best defence in the Spanish Liga.”
“I think they're a team that play on the break. We need to be careful. They have some wonderful players and I think it will be an attractive match. I hope we show our strong side in the first leg in Madrid and take a good result back to Munich.”
Bayern will travel to the Vicente Calderon for the first leg where the noise levels are usually through the roof. But Lewandowski is up for the task saying, “We've heard the atmosphere there is among the top three in Europe when it comes to how the fans support their team. I like playing in front of crowds like that.”
The striker came very close to winning the UEFA Champions League in 2013 when Borussia Dortmund met his current side in the final. But a late Robben goal denied him the title. He will be hoping for a different story this time around.Modified 20 Dec 2019, 06:54 IST
