Rob Cross is hoping to use a new ‘protein diet’ in order to aid his cause after a lacklustre start to the season where he has not won a title since the World Championship.

For most that would be normal but for Cross it is not due to the hype surrounding his big World Championship victory.

‘Voltage’ himself admitted in an interview with Live Darts that he is doing it as if you haven’t got the energy at the start, it won’t come during games. He hopes this lifestyle change can help him change for the better.

“I’ve been trying a protein diet and it’s been going really well,” said Cross. “I need more energy.”

“I’ve noticed that I’ve been a bit lacklustre at times this year and if you haven’t got the energy at the start you’re not just going to magic it out of thin air.

“For me, why I won the Worlds is because of the energy I had and the adrenaline flows a lot easier.

“That’s something I really need to work on and get that right and if I can then I’ll feel a lot better.

“I go to a place now where they sort my diet out – I have shakes in the morning.

“I’m going to have a little lifestyle change for the better.”
