Andy Murray Discusses His New Gluten Free-ish Diet
Andy Murray has recently jumped on the gluten-free craze. Like Novak Djokovic and Sabine Lisicki, Murray has also decided to rid himself of gluten and change his diet with an eye on better results and performance.
In his presser yesterday after beating Gilles Simon, Murray explained his new eating regimen.
Q. We were talking about your diet before you came in. Tell us what the green foods are that you do eat.
ANDY MURRAY: Well, I mean, pretty much any meats, fish, rice, vegetables. The only stuff I’m not eating now is pretty much wheat. Anything that’s got corn in it, which is actually a lot of like snacks and stuff like biscuits, those sorts of things. It’s tough to find stuff that doesn’t have corn in it. Yeah, milk, cow’s milk even. Having like soy milk instead.
Q. Has that been tough? Are you those things you like?
ANDY MURRAY: No, I haven’t found it that different. You just need to make sure you have enough snacks that you can have. That’s the one thing. And you have to eat enough protein and have enough meat. Before I would have a lot of protein shakes and a lot of protein bars, supplements after I finish playing and practicing. Now I can’t have any of them because they’ve got all the bad stuff in it. So that’s what’s been difficult, getting the right amount of food on board. But it’s not too bad.
So far for Murray the diet hasn’t been helping much. He lost first round last week at the Rogers Cup Montreal to Kevin Anderson 63, 61 but there are signs of hope. This week he’s won three matches to reach the semifinals at the Western and Southern in Cincinnati where he’ll play Mardy Fish this afternoon. Fish, however, has beaten Murray the last three times they have played.
