Manny Pacquiao Secrets

Now, Manny Pacquiao's secrets revealed...

Pacman loves veggies. In an interview, he revealed how he gets his powerful punches and stays in shape without losing his strength. He said, “We should not eat just meat. We need to eat much and different vegetables to have a strong body and resistance.”

Pacman also eats enough rice usually paired with a famous Filipino food, “Tinolang Manok” (chicken ginger stew) that contains a lot of green leafy vegetables like “malunggay” and chayote.

Contrary to the accusation of Floyd Mayweather that Pacquaio takes steroids, the latter strongly denies it. He actually said that he never knew what a steroid at all. He never saw such thing.

A great coach named Roach. Indeed in every great athlete comes a great coach. Manny Pacquiao wouldn’t be on his peak today without a man on his back named, Freddy Roach.

Roach is not only Pacman’s trainer, he’s also a friend. In fact, Roach visited Pacman’s home town. He even appeared in a TV commercial along with Pacquiao in the Philippines.

He never forgets to pray. As seen during his fight on the ring, before he faces his match, he always has a moment in one corner to pray. He always wears a rosary before and after a fight.

A big cheer and a big crowd strengthen him. Pacquiao knows he needed his fans support. It’s like a holiday in the Philippines whenever he’s in MGM Grand. There’s an hour of pause in everything. His victory is the Philippine's victory. He even gives tickets to his friends to watch him fight live in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao stays humble inspite of fame. He remains the same Manny from Gen. San. though he’s now a millionaire or even a billionaire. He has helped many Filipinos and continues to donate to charities and his neighbors.

      blaise25- I do believe Pacquiao's winning secrets is in the food he eats. Really food can do so much for us. Would you believe me that it is also the surest way to a man's heart?
