3. What do you usually take for lunch and dinner, and why?

I normally try to have an early lunch and then another light snack before training in the evening starts. Lunch is usually heavier than most meals with anything ranging from chicken chop with pasta or yong tau foo and then some bananas and almonds before training. Dinner usually goes home-cooked or whatever is convenient but definitely not as heavy as my lunch orders.

4. Any food or beverages you don’t consume?

I am not a fussy eater so there isn’t really particular food or beverages I don’t consume. My diet is not too strict because rugby is a sport that really consumes my energy.

6. Your professional tips for an athlete’s diet?

Eating in moderation is the important factor. You can have your fast food, sweet desserts and fizzy drinks and yet keep in shape. Just remember that it shouldn’t be your go-to food all the time. Having some here and there is good.
