Is it true that Ivan Basso refused to eat peas, because they are too fat? (http://www.dailypeloton.com/displayarticle.asp?pk=9639).

Any record of him saying this?

I'm not planning on following that diet, but I think it is a great trivia and want to know if I can repeat it in good faith.

Cheers

Here's Basso, quoted in a Gazzetta dello Sport article: "The fight with weight is an eternal one. The best thing is a healthy and balanced diet. The Mediterranean diet is perfect, while I am against extremely strict ones."

Same article quotes Contador's new-found avoidance of red meat  3

Mind you, I've met him a couple of times, shorter than you'd expect and much thinner than he looks on the TV.

He's going to get a shock at the Tour of Britain with our food unless Liquigas bring their own chef...
