Another star athlete, Novak Djokovic, who is arguably one of the best tennis players in the world, changed his eating habits after he found out he was gluten intolerant. After years of eating bread, pasta, and pizza, he opted for good source animal proteins and plenty of fresh fruit, leafy greens and veggies.
“You’ll feel great. One thing my friends have noticed is how much my moods and energy levels have evened out. I’m no longer anxious, unfocused or prone to smashing a racket after a disappointment,” says Djokovic, who credits the Paleo diet (and eliminating gluten) with helping him become the highest-ranked tennis player in the world.
