Have you ever wondered what Cristiano Ronaldo does to maintain his incredible fitness levels?

The Portuguese star certainly has rare genetics, which has enabled him to keep at the top of his game despite being on the verge of turning 40.

But, away from genetics, Ronaldo’s career longevity also has a lot to do with his extremely strict diet and nutritional discipline.

The 39-year-old recently gave fitness brand Whoop a brief tour of his refrigerator and explained his typical diet.

A video shared by Whoop shows the contents of Ronaldo’s fridge, which is mostly vegetables and fruits. There is also infused water and juice, which occupy a large chunk of space in the forward’s cold storage.

"I like to eat properly, not only because I play football, but it's for your health, the most precious thing that you have in your life. As I told you, now this moment, hydration (points to juices and water)." Ronaldo said in the video.

Asked if he is ever tempted to step away from his healthy eating, Ronaldo added:

"I try to do different meals every time, because I have a big family. To eat some pizza with them, or a burger with some chips. We know that I don't do this often, but it's good, because, if not, your kids are going to call you a boring father."

In May 2024, Ronaldo joined Whoop as one of the fitness brand’s ambassadors, and together the two parties have created several videos which have been posted on the company’s social media.

What is Ronaldo up to?

With the Saudi Pro League season concluded, Ronaldo has shifted focus to the Euro 2024. It will be the sixth time he is participating in the European Championships since his debut in 2004, per ESPN.

The Al-Nassr star will hope his extraordinary fitness levels will be enough to earn him enough minutes on the pitch as he seeks to repeat the feat Portugal achieved in 2016 when they won the Euros, against the odds.

On Tuesday, Jule 11, Ronaldo recently gave fans a glimpse of what he was capable of at 39, scoring a brace during a friendly against Ireland.

Elsewhere, Sports Brief reported on Cristiano Ronaldo’s free kick which agonizingly hit the post.

The Portugal star was in the starting XI for Roberto Martinez's side as Seleção featured in their final friendly match before the start of the Euro 2024.

In the 21st minute of the game, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner stood over a free kick from at least 35 yards, with fans in the stadium typically expecting him to attempt the audacious.
