4 Times Olympic Gold Medallist Bradley Wiggins, CBE, Recommends Westin Gourmet
Ask any athlete about their training schedule and they’ll tell you how important it is to follow a healthy, nutritious diet.
Having protein rich foods in your diet is essential for muscle repair and recovery as well as replacing any nutrients lost during your workout.
Olympic cyclist and Tour de France Champion Bradley Wiggins, CBE, couldn’t agree more with this statement..
In an interview with our Westin Gourmet team, the 4 times Olympic Gold Medallist and Tour de France Winner attributes much of his recent success to the quality of the meat he eats:
“High protein in the diet is extremely important for professional sportsmen. Apart from carbohydrate intake, good quality protein consumption is of equal importance. Protein intake following a tough workout helps the muscles to recover and help strengthen the muscle for the next session.”
Continuing, Wiggins revealed how frustrated he's become with water injected chicken:
“In most high street supermarkets now you tend to notice that a lot of the chicken has had a degree of processing done to it, but what they don’t realise when they do this is that they are dampening the quality of the protein.”
When asked would buying from a company like Westin Gourmet help him keep to a high protein diet, Wiggins went on to divulge why bulk suppliers are an athletes dream:
“Buying in bulk from a quality food supplier like Westin Gourmet, where you know the quality of the product is guaranteed means that my nutrition and the quality of my protein intake is not compromised. It also means I am able to make savings financially.”
Based on the feedback from Bradley we created Gourmet Protein Packs especially for athletes and bodybuilders. Great taste, no added water and high in protein.
