This meant no fast food, sugary drinks, unhealthy snacks, or refined sugars. Instead, he could have gone for more natural, whole foods. He certainly consumes a lot of water during the day. He may have tried to limit his portion size.

In just four weeks, The Ace in the Pack has won three ranking trophies in three different countries; earlier this month, Trump won the English and Wuhan Opens. He extended his incredible winning streak to 20 matches in Belfast, but he didn't have it all his own way and needed to show grit throughout the competition to stay in contention.
In both the last 16 and quarter-finals, he came from behind, needing to win the final two frames as he eliminated opponents in deciders, and in the semi-finals against an in-form Barry Hawkins, Trump had to overcome a 4-1 deficit in the race to six.
However, Trump began the final as a hot favorite, despite the fact that the reigning Shoot Out champion is on a roll and easily dispatched Jack Lisowski 6-1 in the last four to reach his second ranking final.
In the biggest match of his life, Wakelin looked at ease as he took advantage of Trump's sluggish start to take an early 2-1 lead. Trump, on the other hand, demonstrated his tenacity once more, stringing together the final five frames of the afternoon session to establish a commanding 6-2 lead.
The Triple Crown winner returned for the evening session and produced some hot snooker, increasing his lead to one with breaks of 101 and 125. Wakelin broke his opponent's seven-frame streak and continued the match with frame 11, but Trump crossed the finish line in the next frame, finishing in style with an effort of 129.
