CRISTIANO RONALDO is entering the twilight years of his career – but still looks as fit on and off the pitch.

And Manchester United fans are already seeing the fruits of his labor in his second spell at Old Trafford, with the superstar scoring 14 goals in 22 games so far.

Ronaldo’s incredible diet revealed

CR7 joined the Red Devils from Juventus for £12.8million last summer.

After a rocky start to his Italian company, the superstar scored 31 goals in 47 games in all competitions in his debut season.

He also broke Ali Daei’s international goalscoring record by scoring his 111th goal for Portugal last year.

But behind the scenes, it takes a lot of hard work.

From his diet to his exercise routine to sleep and rest, Ronaldo leads the most disciplined lifestyle.

It can eat up to SIX meals a day, with fish making up a large portion of its diet.

Ronaldo describes chicken as his ‘magic food’

Swordfish, tuna and braised cod are particularly popular.

He considers chicken “magical” because of its high protein and low fat content.

For breakfast, Ronaldo will eat ham and cheese and low-fat yoghurt.

If he doesn’t have any for breakfast, the Manchester United star will wolf down avocado toast for the day’s snacks.

Lunch #1 could be chicken and salad, while #2 could be fish – maybe tuna with salad, eggs and olives.

Dinner will see the footballing legend fill his boots with meat or fish, perhaps breaking them into two separate sittings.

FIVE NAPS A DAY

Steak, swordfish or the Lisbon specialty of Bacalao a la Brasa – a mixture of braised cod, onions, thinly sliced ​​potatoes and scrambled eggs should accompany it until bedtime .

Once home, Ronaldo will make sure he gets eight hours of sleep every night.

This is in addition to the FIVE naps he will take during the day.

Speaking of rest, the Portuguese superstar said: “Good sleep is really important to get the most out of training.

“I go to bed early and get up early, especially before games. Sleep helps muscles recover, which is really important.”

Clearly, the gym and intense exercise are an integral part of Ronaldo’s life, as shown by his incredible muscle definition and quick recovery from injury.

The forward follows a Pilates-based routine that focuses on resistance work to strengthen his core.

LOVES SWIMMING

He is also a huge swimming fan, often going to the pool with his son Cristiano Jr.

For all his troubles and beatings suffered on the football pitch, Ronaldo invested in a £50,000 cryotherapy chamber.

Standing in the chamber for about three minutes, the liquid nitrogen freezes Ronaldo to between minus 160 and minus 200 degrees Celsius.

Cryotherapy fights muscle pain and reduces swelling, inflammation or sprains.

But Ronaldo places mental health alongside physical health as the key to being happy on and off the pitch.

It involves spending quality time with his family – partner Georgina Rodriguez and four children Cristiano Jr, twins Mateo and Eva Maria and Alana Martina.

The superstar said: “Mental toughness is just as important as physical toughness.

“Workouts and physical sessions are the most important, but living a relaxed life helps you be the best you can be, physically and mentally.

“I spend my free time with my family and friends, which keeps me relaxed and in a positive frame of mind.”

And the final secret behind Ronaldo’s supreme physical condition – no alcohol.

He’s been clean since at least 2005 – not only because of the adverse effects on his diet, but also because his father’s death when Ronaldo was 20 was alcohol-related.
