Novak Djokovic: 'I do eat plant based for quite a few years'

Novak Djokovic commented on his eating regime. The Serbian player was often criticized for not getting too much energy from food. Djokovic clarified the topic in a press conference. "I do eat plant based for quite a few years already.

But because of the misinterpretations of labels and misuse of labels, I just don't like that kind of name, so to say. I do eat plant based. I think that's one of the reasons why I recover well. I don't have allergies that I used to have any more.

And I like it." Djokovic also spoke about a documentary he is involved in: "You should watch it if you have an interest, of course. It's about plant-based diet. That's all I'm going to say. Obviously they're coming out with it soon.

It is about how this diet affects the world, not just personal health, but also sustainability, ecology, animals. This is what I care about, so I'm really privileged to be part of that team."
