I dunno, I bet Roger Federer weighs 220 lbs within five years of retiring unfortunately. He looks like he has severe candida developing which coupled with the estrogen effect of bisphenol A in plastic, is the main cause of lower tummy GUT.

Jimmy Connors still looks like he's at his playing weight at age 58, and his pre-match meal was......two hamburgers, on buns, and three glasses of Coke. (per Tennis Magazine --- I never get tired of posting this trivia).

Is this a joke question? Is the



Your metabolism level is something you are born with. Some people can get to a reasonable age eating junk whilst looking healthy on the outside. Some put on weight easier because they have a slower metabolism. Metabolism doesn't mean diet.

But you can forge your metabolism...

I hope some serious people will help you establish what food are best for tennis players.
Generally speaking, you need carbs, little protein (much less than the amount eaten in the US), lots of veggies and fruits, good oils (olive, almond). No processed food, if possible. Quantities must be small, due to activity on/off court: this I think helps maintain "good metabolism".
You might want (even if you are a male) to check out Navratilova's book, "Shape yourself".

Pasta is a staple for most athletes pre and post match.

Unless you're an NBA player (or 1980s Agassi), then McDonalds is what keeps them going.

And some Prosciutto and Parmegiano Reggiano.

If quantities must be "small," how can there be "lots" of veggies and fruits?

A lot of it is genetics. Usually those that are genetically superior don't train nor eat optimally at all.

They exercise all day long.
That means they burn a lot of calories.
Thus they stay thin.
Not really rocket science.

playing tennis 2-5 hours a day does the trick

Nadal: eats a mix of Mentos and orange peels
Federer: rat blood
Djokovic: liquid boron.

Unless you're Serena who is going to be a fat *** no matter how much tennis she plays she looks like a dog compared to Julia Gorges.

There's definitely more female tennis players with little bellies than the male players (Bagdaghtis excepted).

Excercising all day, can actually lead to weight GAIN. Look at Federer, LOOK at that lower stomach!!! That is cortisol stress from OVER excercise and the estrogenic effect of being a plastic person in the era of plastic.

All the old parardigms of weight loss, weight gain and optimum diet have been thrown out by anyone who knows what is up. Problem is, one expert out of a million experts knows of this. So the useless misinformation swirls around, USELESSLY.

Its not being a ray of sunshine. Or a ray of darkness, its about being a beacon of light in a civilization of half truths, uselessness, and outright garbage. Ever since plastic came into being in the sixties, people have been swelling up like balloons. Its HISTORIC.
