The book is written very well. You understand the sense even if you don't know every single word (I'm german and I understood everything). It's structured very interestingly. It has many chapters and these chapters are divided into several parts. So it offers a clear view. You can also read the book even if you don't know much about Novak Djokovic or tennis in general because you'll learn not only much about Novak Djokovic's diet but also about his tennis career and his private life. I just can recommend it to you, I was very satisfied by reading it.
Natürlich bin ich als langjähriger Fan wohl ein bisschen voreingenommen, aber über das Autobiographische hinaus finde ich die Informationen zu (gluten freier) Ernährung und körperlicher sowie psychischer Fitness gleichermaßen interessant wie hilfreich. Djokovic erklärt verständlich und doziert zu keinem Zeitpunkt: immer betont er, was ihm persönlich (als Profitennisspieler) hilft und dass jeder für sich herausfinden muss, was davon für die eigene Umsetzung geeignet ist.
Einiges hatte ich ansatzweise in Kommentaren während seiner Matches gehört, aber in dem erzählenden Schreibstil bekommt man das Gefühl, als erzähle Nole es einem selbst.
"Serve to Win: The 14-Day Gluten-Free Plan for Physical and Mental Excellence" by famous tennis player Novak Ðokovic is not usual diet book, but nice mix of memoirs, dietary recipes and motivational literature.
When back in 2011 he won 10 tournaments and had won 43 consecutive matches Novak was able to finally overcome Federer and Nadal, and become world No.1 tennis player.
From the first time he came on tennis scene it was obvious that he had extreme amount of talent, but had also problems with health and injuries. There were lot of occasions when he had to call time-out during match due to a need of medical help, he had problems with excessive fatigue and breathing. Due to this issues he began to be criticized in the media as a hypochondriac or not fit enough.
But the problem was not in any of the above but in his diet. He changed his diet after he met Dr. Cetojevic, who assumed that problems were caused due to food intolerance. After Novak gave up gluten for 2 weeks he immediately saw and felt the difference and it was obvious that he have to eliminate dairy and gluten from his meals. The result was that he lost some weight, but gain lot of energy and flexibility, the problems with breathing ceased and then happened all the above-mentioned successes in 2011.
As mentioned, the book is mostly about nutrition and the effects this new nutrition plan had on his life but it's not only about his diet. It gives reader some interesting facts about how he started playing tennis, his family background, describing support he got from his family that helped him to overcome problems and become the best tennis player in the world.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
I read Perlmutters Grain Brain intitially and had incredible results with gluten free food, so I guess I did not need to be converted. But Djokovic certainly has his own very practical twist on it. The book is written in a very nice and unobtrusive manner.
I myself am also an avid tennis player, so I hope that Djokovic will come back on the number one seed.
Before I read this book, I was astonished about the fitness of different tennis players. They have to play, if in the top 10-20 of the world, at least 70-100 matches each year, with sometimes a very low time of regeneration. Not at least players like Tommy Haas, who is 35 years old, impressed me by his physical agility. As "Djoker" says in his book, the most important part to keep the level of performance at that high level is to regenerate as good as possible. The personal solution for the number 1 of tennis should be, the right nutrition (f.e. Gluten-free), Stretching- workouts, mental balance, and the right social environment. I was interested in the first to parts, the nutrition and the workouts, because I am for myself passionate in soccer and tennis.
The book spend the most pages to describe how Djoker is used to eat and why he does this. Very interesting is the combination of different elements of different cultures, he gathered when he travelled around the word, while the ATP tour. So he combines the hints he got to create his own dishes and menus, and he declares which effects this nutrition has to his fitness.
The book is well written, it`s entertaining too, and the parts of his personal experiences when he was younger, as a short chronic to his sports chareer were very interesting, too. He begins the nutrition part with his experiences about a Gluten intolerance which he maybe developed by years eating much pasta and pizza and other gluten containing food. The explanations are quite simple, he relates the scientific based knowledge about food-allergies to a doctor and nutrition researcher. Sometimes he leaves is path of empiric science and tells f.e. about a experiment he experienced which is very doubtable for me.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
