• Murray gets wake-up call from gluten-free diet

    Murray gets wake-up call from gluten-free diet Andy Murray says that he has even more energy than usual after five months of a gluten-free lifestyle, with the world No. 4 even admitting that he's developed the new-found talent of waking up early.

    The Scot says that he's amazed by the energy he now has and says the sacrifices in eating habits are proving worthwhile on the court."I think there’s a bit of difference in my approach to training and the diet. I feel pretty fresh.

    "I slept seven and a half hours after playing both singles and doubles (at Paris Bercy, where early starts can be the rule at a big indoor event) but still woke up feeling fresh. The diet has given me more energy."

    But he confessed: "I miss being able to pick up a menu and order what I want — like bread when you're waiting for your food to come in a restaurant. It can be quite frustrating when everyone else is dunking their bread in olive oil or smearing it in butter.

    "It's a bit of a pain not being able to have a regular yogurt, but it has been worth it."

no surprise how any change of diet from a traditional scottish one based on fesh n' cheps and greggs sandwiches will improve his performance ;)

wouldn't expect so much gluten in yogurt though...

croc - I don't know how it is in London, but in the US, most of our yogurts are gluten free...except the ones that come with granola stir-ins. I have friends with Celiac that eat regular yogurt just fine.

well after the "Diet" if we do not have Murray Djoker finals next year, we would know Djoker's form was not only owing to the diet
