Apropos of Novak Djokovic’s Australian Open win in dramatic fashion, here is an article in which he credits his ascendancy to the top of tennis world in adhering to a gluten free lifestyle. I know the word “diet” seems to be a relevant term, but I dislike it because it doesn’t take into account the positive changes resulting from this lifestyle change. It makes us leaner, faster, stronger, more powerful and fitter. What athlete wouldn’t want to improve in all those areas?
I can attest to the positive effects of going gluten free. I’ve only become leaner, stronger, faster, and more powerful of a lifter, not to mention, more energized of a person. I can only hope to achieve an iota of the success in weightlifting that Djokovic has achieved as a tennis player.
