Argentina and Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi is widely considered to be the greatest player in the history of the sport, with the striker creating/breaking numerous records during his career so far, including winning a record six Ballon d'Or awards.

Messi, however had a habit of vomiting before taking the field a couple of years ago and now Marca has now revealed how he has managed to shake that off and turn a corner. The 33-year-old was understood to have consulted a specialist, Dr Giuliano Poser - who had recommended the superstar to make a change when it comes to his diet.

Products like alcohol, flour, red meat, fizzy drinks and refined wheats were among the items that Messi was advised to cut from his diet and it has worked wonders for the Argentinian.

"Vegetables, seasonal fruits and a good mineral water are essential fuels for our muscles. You have to reduce the intake of processed foods or foods contaminated with pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, medications," Poser said.

Messi is not the only star that Poser has advised, with the likes of fellow Argentinian's, Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala also using his services in order to boost their fitness and increase their efficiency on the pitch.
