Novak Djokovic: Was a Gluten-Free Diet the Secret to His Wimbledon Win?

By brooklynsupper |

Novak Djokovic is the new Wimbledon champion as well as the world number 1, and many are wondering, does he owe it to a gluten-free diet? Long know to suffer form allergies and sniffles on court, he was diagnosed with the gluten allergy last year. Since swearing off gluten altogether he has lost a few pounds, and gained impressive stamina and power on court. But the real advantage may be the mental clarity that many believe comes with a gluten free diet. Whether the change is due to physical improvements brought on by the popular diet, or a boost in confidence and belief that he has improved, Djokovic’s dominance is clear.
