Default Gluten free plan is a BS excuse

We have a small stratup and we do usually do an annual tournament. I lost in the first round in less than an hour! I got unlucky with the draw, but still... I did the gluten free plan for 45 freakin days in prevision to this tournament, and I didn't become a much better player, or more fit, actually it did absolutly nothing to me. Not worse, but not better either and certainly not a monster. If I can figure out that, how the ATP can't?

Playing your rec Men's 1.0 tournament, it's probably better for you to spend 45 days practicing how to hit rather than trying a gluten-free diet. You won't notice a change at your level.

What is gluten free supposed to accomplish anyway? I thought it's only for those gluten intolerant people mostly in asia.

It only works if you are intolerant to gluten and suffering health wise because of it. Otherwise it won't make a big difference.

You have no clue about what my level is. And I hit lot of balls during the 45 days. Like I said, it was a bad draw.

I am. That's why I though I can be a better player with a different regime.

Are you seriously comparing yourself with a top tennis player?

Try to be a better person.
Gluten free plan doesn't work with haters.

If hating cheaters make me a bad person so be it. Federer should have 25+ GS if he was competing against "better persons". Sorry to get indignant over injustice.

So, you tried a gluten free diet for 45 days and expected to play like Djokovic, eh . Then you say 'the draw was hard', or you just played crap. The other guy was better than you, no?

This is too funny/stupid.

Google 'Celiac disease' and you will learn that people who have it have to be on a gluten free diet to the rest of their lives. There are some studies that do suggest that even healthy people shouldn't consume too much gluten rich food ...

The other guy (my brother) is better only on clay. I kick his ass (and probably 95% of people over here) on hard.

And I certainly know what gluten intolérance is, I didn;'t try that stricte regime just for fun.

Going gluten free only works on Djokovic! You see, it's Popeye and his spinach, if a muppet takes the spinach, it doesn't produce the same affect.

Just keep to your chips and burgers.

OK, first of all good luck to you in next tournament. Maybe it didn't help but also it didn't harm you either. So, don't say 'Gluten free diet is BS', it's kinda a bombastic silly statement. Neither you or I are doctors. However, as I said some latest scientific studies suggest that a gluten free diet can benefit healthy people too. Maybe you need to do it for a long period of time to see some improvements (your energy level, stamina etc). Diet itself will certainly not help you improve your tennis skills.
