Food is the most important
He has the same breakfast every morning. He eat one banana and a glass of fruit juice combined with a tablespoon of olive oil, or a glass of milk with lentil powder. He says that olive oil has a number of health benefits and is especially beneficial for your cardiovascular system and skin.
For lunch he drinks a glass of milk along with 2-3 biscuits.
