What the Champions think about the book

Radamel Falcao

Nutrition is a key part of athletic performance

Julien Absalon

Cross-Country Mountain Bike Double Olympic Champion, Five-Time World Champion

Nutrition is an important parameter in all endurance sports. Good nutrition helps regulate body weight – the power-to-weight ratio is important in endurance sports – but also assists in recuperating rapidly after exercise, as well as optimizing energy efficiency and preventing deficiencies in nutrients.

Sophie Herbrecht

World Handball Champion

Success starts on the plate, eating well is the key to success!

Paula Radcliffe

World Champion and Women’s World Record Holder in Marathon with a time of 2:15:25

If we want to succeed, we have to respect our body and provide it with fuel. By eating a good, balanced diet, our bodies will respond, and we have a better chance of achieving our goals. Eating well is always a pleasure!

Thibaut Pinot

Professional Cyclist, Team FDJ

Enjoy your food as much as I did!

Ibrahim Sekagya

New York Red Bulls Assistant Coach

I always followed a clean and balanced diet to provide the energy needed to stay fit, play at a top level, and train well.

Caroline Wozniacki

Danish Professional Tennis Player

To me nutrition is very important. To perform my best, I need to put the right fuel into my body! It’s like if you have the best car in the world, but put the wrong fuel in it, it’s not going to go very far. It’s the same principle in the body of an athlete.

Djibril Sidibé

International French Soccer Player, Everton Defender

Water and organic foods, a perfect combination intake. It’s essential for an athlete.

Mathias Wibault

Member of the French Cross-Country Ski Team

Can you perform in a sport without giving the body the nutrients necessary for regeneration? Impossible! In cross-country skiing, a large amount of energy is expended, due to the nature of the discipline and its harsh conditions. Good nutrition is vital!
