How To Have A Gluten free Active Summer
For those who are gluten intolerant, eating the wrong food can be very bad news, not least for your energy levels. That is why now could be one of the very best times of year to ensure you are eating well with a gluten free delivery.
The start of summer is a perfect one for sport. With long daylight hours and warmer temperatures to enjoy it’s a great time to go running in the evenings, while there are many summer sports to enjoy like cricket and tennis. If you are not in the best physical shape, this is a great time of year to put that right.
If tennis is a sport that interest you, one man to take inspiration from is Novak Djokovic. The Serb will be attempting to defend his Wimbledon title this summer and lives on a gluten-free diet.
He switched to this diet on the recommendation of a nutritionist after the 2010 Australian Open, when Djokovic struggled with his energy levels. He was found to be gluten intolerant and thus found the change to be transformational, enabling him to come through a number of epic, gruelling encounters with the likes of Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Andy Murray in the following years.
With 19 out of his 20 grand slams coming after the switch, the move clearly worked for Djokovic. That is not to say it is best for everyone; Andy Murray tried it and found it backfired on him as his energy levels dropped, admitting he “felt awful” and soon gave it up.
However, if going gluten-free helps boost your energy levels, a regular meal prep and delivery to your office in a busy working day can help you prepare for evenings of sporting activity in the summer sunshine. You might not win Wimbledon, but you’ll be feeling fitter, stronger and healthier nonetheless.
