Toto Wolff’s Journey Towards a Balanced Diet: Lessons Learned from Late Nutrition Awareness

Good nutrition is key to overall health and well-being. However, many of us only pay attention to what we put into our bodies later in life. In this blog post, we will learn from someone who only started caring about nutrition in their 30s: Toto Wolff, Austrian motorsport executive and former racing driver, currently serving as the CEO and Team Principal of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, shares his experiences and insights on creating a balanced diet that works for him.

Too Late to Change your Diet?

Toto Wolff starts by sharing that it was in his 30s that he began to pay attention to what he ate. When did you start your nutrition and health journey? Toto used to eat a lot of carbohydrates, thinking that was necessary because he was working out. But as the science of nutrition became more sophisticated, he began to think more carefully about what he ate and realized that it was essential to be aware of what foods he put into his body and the timing, when he ate. Nutrition is a necessary part of the health and development of humans, leading to "stronger immune systems, safer pregnancy and childbirth, lower risk of non-communicable diseases, and longevity". The National Health Institute also mentions that performance is a factor that comes from focusing on a healthy nutrition intake.

Importance of Nutrition

It is important to be aware and understand the importance of living a healthy life and a balanced and healthy diet. According to the World Health Organization, in today's world, we are facing a double burden of malnutrition, including undernutrition and overweight, especially in low- and middle-class income countries. Inadequate vitamins or minerals cause severe threats to human health and lead to increased stress, tiredness, and the risk of developing illnesses. Long-term effects include high blood pressure. AURUM is the start of a healthy lifestyle by becoming active and strong (in just 6 minutes a week!) and looking out for a healthy body and mind.

How to make Food look Aesthetic to Please your Eye?

Toto Wolff emphasizes the importance of avoiding processed foods, which are known to be unhealthy. Although he loves Oreos, he wouldn't eat them, and if he did, in moderation. Instead, he would attempt to have a balanced diet with plenty of protein, carbohydrates, and a mix of vegetables and fruits. While he acknowledges that vegetables and fruits can be bland, Toto tries to mix them up to keep things interesting. He also recommends eating some sugary foods but in moderation. For example, he prefers dark chocolate over milk chocolate, but sometimes he indulges in a simple treat like Milka in moderation.
