Cavendish Shares His Views On Nutrition

If you are looking for nutrition tips and inspiration for following a sound diet, cyclists like Mark will tell you that he was addicted to junk food like others.

His fondness for food that is bad for health often gets the better of him, though he does balance out the same with rigorous fitness regimes and hours of cycling. He states that he had been on junk food when he was young and when he started to work at Barclays he was called the fat banker as he was quite chubby. He lived on burgers and chips. Even after he became a world champion, he still confesses about his love for food and junk food in particular.

Mark states that, while it is important for one to watch their diet, those who state that they are doing it all the time and weighing the food they eat, cannot be doing so for every meal. Everyone tends to binge and eat what they love and don’t watch or count the calories every time.

Mark Cavendish Believes In Himself

Mark Cavendish has courage to shut out the mouths of his doubters but he does not deserve what he has achieved.

He is just 29 years of age and thinks that his career is far from over. His response towards those who take his interview has become completely different. Even when the question is not asked he anticipates them. He feels that scandals and doping makes him sick.

He is ready to strike those out who do not believe in his credibility as he has got 6 wins already in this season. It shows that he is an interesting character with much brilliance. His skills of biking are worth mentioning. The entire experience of biking is a refreshing experience for him. He cares for the servicemen and women who gets injured and feels for them. He wants government to do something for them. As a sportsman he is dynamic in his own way such that he speaks his mind without fear.

Years of facts and figures are behind him which he can always quote. The amount of total wins is 11 by which he measures his talent and record. He points out that if his record is measured then he has got the most in comparison to any British rider but he does not get the required media coverage which he deserves. His anger is basically pointed towards Team Sky since the team promoted Froome and Wiggins more than him and, consequently he left the team.
