What a season for Novak Djokovic! For those of you that follow tennis, you probably know that he beat Nadal last night in four sets to wine the US Open, his third grand slam title of the year. Impressive, right? In the 2011 season, he has gone 64-2. Wow.
While he didn’t seem like the crowd favorite last night in the third set tie break, I was cheering on fellow gluten-freer, Djokovic. I don’t think you can attribute all of Djokovic’s success this year to his new diet, but it’s definitely playing a role in his victories. Since going gluten free, Djokovic has had the year of his life on the tennis court. I’m not advocating that everyone should go gluten free, but I do think we would all feel better if we took the time to figure out which foods our bodies respond well too and which ones make us feel crummy.
And for tennis champion, Djokovic, keep staying away from the glutes! Congrats on a great year.
