I regained form after I stopped eating jollof rice – Footballer Isaac Success

Footballer, Isaac Success has revealed how he regained his form in the English Premier League.

Isaac says his change of diet, including a stop in eating his favorite Jollof rice, helped him. The 22-year-old injury prone Nigerian footballer, in a chat with DailyMail said:

“I was eating a lot of African food [Jollof rice inclusive]and it was a little bit heavy but I’ve cut that out and I’m on the team diet, eating with the team.

Eating earlier at night, it’s really helped. I wasn’t fit and wasn’t working. I made mistakes because I wasn’t working hard and needed to concentrate more. I stuck to my plan.
