“I Regained My Fitness After I Stopped Eating Nigerian Jollof Rice” – Isaac Success Reveals
Injury prone Nigerian footballer, Isaac Success, 22, has revealed how a change of diet, including his favorite Jollof rice, helped him regain his form in the English premier league.
In a chat with DailyMail’s Matt Barlow, Isaac said: “I was eating a lot of African food [Jollof rice inclusive]and it was a little bit heavy but I’ve cut that out and I’m on the team diet, eating with the team.
Eating earlier at night, it’s really helped. I wasn’t fit and wasn’t working. I made mistakes because I wasn’t working hard and needed to concentrate more. I stuck to my plan.
When you’re fit it’s more difficult to get injured, and if you’re injured you recover on time. So, this season is going well because physically I’m fine. I lost a couple of kilos and that made me faster and stronger. I feel sharper.”
According to reports, Isaac has already played more minutes this season than he played in the two before.
He has also scored again in the EPL, something he last did in 2016. Has also added three Super Eagles caps to the single cap he had before October.
