Personal Trainer

He takes care of his diet a lot. Like most of us, he also gets hunger pangs and urges to eat junk food. But, the difference is that we eat it and he doesn’t.

He switches the junk food with vegetables. He doesn’t know much about cooking apart from scrambled eggs. So, he has to depend upon healthy foods from restaurants out there.

Bolt’s typical diet looks something like this –

  • Breakfast – Ackee and saltfish (traditional Jamaican dish) with dumplings, yellow yam, potato, cooked banana
  • Lunch – Pasta and chicken breast
  • Dinner – Rice and peas with pork

It’s a little difficult to achieve a fitness level similar to Bolt if you are not already athletic. Check out this sample workout routine from Details.com and Men’s Health.

You can see him training at YouTube under the guidance of his coach.
