  • 10 days before a soccer match:

Messi believes in cutting down the carbohydrates from his body and building it gradually as the time of match comes around the corner. In this way, the body maximizes the blood sugar available in ample, inside the body, giving the body a good shape. The diet is called low carb high protein diet, which includes protein shakes 3 times a day, 7-8 glasses of water in order to avoid dehydration.

  • 5 days before a soccer match:

The above diet is introduced with vegetable soup before every meal. The soup must contain a high amount of turmeric, chilli, coriander and ginger as they help in making blood thin as the vegetable soup is a vasodilator, which results in increased blood flow.

  • A day before the match:

Afternoon meal plays a crucial role, so Lionel takes fish/prawn/chicken along with boiled potatoes plus green vegetables and an orange.

  • 6 hours before the match:

It is better to invest this time in sleeping rather than being awake and eat. Even in case Messi wakes, he never takes any wheat-related product as carbohydrates can slow down the body and urges him to sleep more. Instead, he goes for having porridge or sometimes combines egg white for ideal balance of proteins and carbohydrates.

  • 90 minutes before the match:

Messi prefers to have seasonal fruits 70-90 minutes before the match. Banana, mango, apple, etc., are all good as they have the best amount of fiber and have less sugar content.
