Not many 18 years old players get to the semifinals of a Grand Slam, mainly because of the lack of experience and physical power, but Amanda Anisimova is one of the few exceptions, so taking a look at the diet that helped her outperform top 10 players like Petra Kvitova and Simona Halep is a smart way to update the eventual flaws in your eating habits.
Anisimova took part in “Athlete’s Cookbook”, a video series sponsored by Nike and hosted by American comedian James Davis. Amanda helped Davis, who is “on a mission to learn how the best athletes in the world fuel their training with healthy, simple food”, by sharing her diet guidelines.
“I've been eating a lot of plant-based recently. I sometimes have chicken, but mostly fish or just plant-based”. Anisimova pointed out after admitting sushi is one of her favorite meals. Do not make the mistake of thinking that Anisimova was forced to turn to a healthy diet with no hamburgers, french fries and coke of a nutritionist appointment.
Amanda told James Davis how the change happened. “When I was 14, I started feeling sluggish and then I started to change my diet and I felt better in tournaments. It was just finding things that felt right for me and what foods I liked”.
Anisimova said. Besides the above, Amanda Anisimova satisfied one of the curiosities of the comedian. He asked her about carrots and their nutrients. “My parents used to tell me that it’s good for my eyesight when I was younger and I think it is actually true”. Anisimova said.
