Vegan Athlete: Novak Djokovic

What Does the Tennis World Number-1 Eat To Be No-1

“I switched to an entirely vegan diet in 2004 for personal ethical reasons and was immediately surprised at how great I felt when training and competing. I recover faster from workouts and have more energy than I did before. For me, it is a simple, life-long decision. Not only do I feel physically better than ever, but I also have the satisfaction of knowing that I am not directly contributing to the industries that are so detrimental to animals, the environment and the people involved.” _____________________________________________________ Mac Danzig, Professional UFC Fighter

Novak Djokovic: The Tennis Sensation

“My diet hasn’t just changed my game, it’s changed my life — my wellbeing. And if I feel better, that obviously transfers to my professional life. Eating vegan makes me more aware of my body on the court… more alert. I removed toxins from my body, and with them went all the inflammation and other things that were messing with my energy levels. As an athlete, the most important thing is to keep your energy levels consistent — especially as a tennis player, where you’re alone on the court for a best of five matches. When playing for 3, 4, 5 hours straight, you need the right fuel… and for me, the right fuel is plant-based.”

The right food for our health, fitness, wellbeing, our planet and our fellow other creatures on earth with whom we share this beautiful planet.
