Serena Williams’ Diet Plan
To maintain her good-looking abs, Serena has to keep her diet healthy and strict, and include lots of fruits and veggies.
Even though she travels all over the world, Serena never compromises on her diet.
A balanced diet that supports a tennis star like Serena should contain around 60-70 carbohydrates, 20 proteins, and 10-15 fat.
If the carbohydrates are insufficient, it will affect her muscles.
So athletes should never cut down on carbohydrates because this is their major energy source.
It is essential to keep muscles and bones strong.
Here’s what Serena’s meals look like:
Serena has a simple breakfast which is usually a cup of oats nourished with almond butter and strawberries.
Late Morning Snack
Because her breakfast is light, she has a heavier snack in the morning.
This will consist of vegetable sandwiches with no cheese, topped with peanut butter or almond butter.
Serena usually has a salad at lunchtime.
Her type of salad will consist of lettuce, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes, onions, mandarin oranges, pita croutons, and peeled almonds.
Then she will also drink lemon juice to keep her fresh and which has plenty of minerals and vitamins.
She often enjoys her favorite grilled chicken in the evening with green tea or low-sugar lemonade.
Her last meal of the day is easy to digest and comprises a limited quota of salad, brown rice, and lots of freshly cooked veggies.
Serena Williams’ Supplements
It is said that Serena does not like taking supplements – she is ‘terrified’ of taking them.
Maybe she is worried that they carry certain substances in them and she wants to stay above board at all times.
So that means she is supplement-free.
She says her sister, Venus, suffered a lot from illness and introduced her to eating vegan and raw foods, which she enjoyed.
She says she “saw a lot of benefits in my game and my body in general from that, just even from a health perspective, I’ve never been a big fan of taking anything.”

A champ will study the weaknesses and strengths of the competition and then develop a game plan that uses their own skills to bring about the desired outcome.

You have to step into that winning mindset, not only for yourself but also for the team.
You need to execute, adapt, and optimize your results
You need to be completely committed and focused on your training to reach the outcomes that grow you and which optimize your results.
You need to analyze your results, regroup with the coach to keep on track
As a player, you need to immediately regroup with your coach so that you can analyze every aspect of your performance and your opponent.
It is vital to learn from your results, evaluate your failures and successes, and be able to mentally prepare for the next game.
