A prominent tennis player Djokovic eliminated the obstacles to perfect physical and psychological form acting against widespread recommendation of nutritionists: he excluded from his diet “healthy whole grains”.
Not a new training program has made him the best in the world tennis player from a very good one in just a year and a half.
It was neither a new racket nor a new method of preparation nor even the new portions of food that helped the sportsman to lose weight, achieve psychological concentration and feel unusually healthy.
It was a new diet.
Novak’s life has changed because he started eating products suitable for his body and ate them in the form in which the body required it – he excluded gluten. It was in 2012.
For the first three months of the new diet he lost weight from eighty-two to seventy-eight kilograms – even friends and relatives worried thinking that he could lose too much.
But Novak himself felt fresher, livelier, more agile and more energetic than ever. He became more rapid, flexible and able to take the balls which other players couldn’t fight off. Besides, he didn’t lose strength and concentration – no mess in his head anymore.
Novak Djokovic is not tired and doesn’t knock the breath like before. Allergic reaction has been tempered, asthma went away, fears and doubts were replaced by confidence. For almost three years, the man hasn’t known about serious colds or flu.
Gluten is a protein contained in cereals such as wheat, rye and oats.
In addition to eating habits, Novak changed his attitude towards sleep. Sleep is very important.
A good night’s sleep helps to train better. Training with full kit helps to sleep well at night. You exercise to improve the body and sleep allows the body to recover, to be even stronger next day. Letting the training help him sleep better Novak improved his training productivity.
