TRENT TALKS HEALTHY LIVING
rom bullied and obese youngster to NRL star, Trent Merrin is aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The Panthers forward was forced to keep an eye on his diet over the years having battled obesity from a young age including being bullied at school.
about myself as a kid and it really put me in a good position to learn a lot about the body.”
Taking it personal, Merrin was determined to turn it around by working hard on the training paddock and living a healthy lifestyle.
The 27-year-old believes there are several positives that come out of eating healthy that makes a difference to everyday life.
“I was probably one of the bigger kids growing up. I have always battled obesity and over the years I have been pretty harsh on myself and kept track of what I eat and my dietary intake,” Merrin said. “Especially being a professional athlete there’s a lot of things you need to know about your nutrition.
Nutrition is the key to a healthy diet which should include green vegetables, a source of protein and low complex carbohydrates, according to Merrin.
I think portion sizes are of a key and to eat consistent during the day in small amounts has really helped me fight obesity. “A healthy, nutritious diet is something that everyone needs. It really helps you throughout the day, gives you more energy and keeps you upbeat and ready to take on the day. There are a lot of positives that come from it, as well as looking good and feeling good, it gives you a lot of confidence.”
“Obviously I faced bullying. As a kid I had to train hard and work harder than the other kids around me. I had to train at such a young age to balance it out.
The Panthers NRL side take their lifestyle choices seriously as well with a nutritionist now a part of the team.
“That’s where I was having some issues at school and everything that comes with it. In saying that it was a blessing in disguise, I learnt a lot
The nutritionist sets out menus for the entire NRL squad on a daily basis with all meals cooked in the kitchens of Panthers Penrith.
Coupled with his own dietary plan, Merrin believes he is in the right frame to have another successful season at the foot of the mountains. “I think that if you are eating well, your body is going to respond better, you are going to look after yourself more and stay clear of injuries and sickness,” he said. “I think the main goal this year is to go better than we did last year and build on it,” he said. “The grand final is in everyone’s minds, but the hard work is between here and there and that’s what we will focus on.”
FAVOURITE MEALS Baked veggies with a source of protein whether it is fish, chicken or red meats. In summer, especially out here, a nice cold salad with some hot baked veggies in it. I don’t mind my stir fries as well.
