I am very interested in Djokovic's Diet. I read some conflicting information. Sometimes he is called a vegan, he himself says "plant-based", on an old 3-day meal plan he included fish. Then I read somewhere he also includes white meat. So can anybody give some recent diet plans of what he actually eats? That would be really cool.
Obviously it is some very good nutrition as he is extremely fit. I have his book on his diet and I also tried some meals there which I liked, but I am curious in what amount of fish meat and eggs he actually eats.

He stopped eating dairy and refined sugar in July/August 2010.
He didn't stop eating cereals, so has been eating e.g. a lot of gluten-free pasta and brown rice, buckwheat since.
He was a vegan from start of 2016 till spring 2018, since then he included also fish into his diet. No eggs however.
Other meat is just rumors and I never read it anywhere, so I don't know where do you get it from.

"as other meat he does not eat", Vajda had said.

Earlier like 2014-15 he also posted some meals on his instagram, but not anymore, so it is pure guesswork what he actually eats in a weekly/monthly etc. basis.
Btw a whole food, plant-based diet is loads healthier than any other combination of diets or any so-called "balanced diet" based on animal protein.
If the plant based diet excludes dairy, eggs and based on whole foods like cereals, pulses/beans, nuts and enough fruits and vegetables, than it could be a correct one even for a high performance sportsman like a tennis player.
Btw I am not gonna debate this here, so anyone with a conflicting world view better spare his opinion.

I guess this is still valid, without the animal protein for dinner. Or just occasionally with fish.
Btw you can have a protein-focused dinner based on plants too: pulses, some high protein nuts, and high protein containing cereals. Vegetables as sides.

Thanks! I am really interested in this because I want to reduce my meat intake while staying fit. Djokovic is a role model in this regard.

Well, actually, only Djokovic can know it.

Since this topic has come up, I want to ask. I do not adhere to or deny the opinion that "plant-based diet is loads healthier than any other combination of diets", but I do not understand why everyone wants to follow this. I never tried the carnivore diet, but heard she was good too. I have tried only keto and quite happy with the results, but will definitely try the plant-based diet well. Do I need to add additional vitamins to it? I am using these now Total Restore Review - Gut Health from Gundry MD , but I don't know if it will fit on the system of his diet.

Some recommendations are to add B12, any other vitamins you should get from the plants.
