    by the way, whole wheat stuff that you have proposed are completely different from Gluten-free diet which Novak advised in “Serve to Win”.

      Hi Behrad,

      Thanks for stopping by and for sharing your ideas on pre-match snacks!

      I think nuts are a great option – my favorite are almonds, and I’ve absolutely had these as a pre-match snack in the past so feeling silly I left these out. One of my favorites in college was actually trail mix. It never felt too heavy in my stomach and was super easy to toss in my bag.

      As for Novak’s gluten-free diet, I think it’s awesome that he was able to uncover his celiac allergy. However, I think it’s important to note that not everyone has an allergic reaction or sensitivity to gluten. From what I’ve learned from sites like celiac.org, this celiac disease only affects about 1% of the population, so gluten based diets, snack, and meals still are great options for the vast majority of players.

      All the best,
      Jon
