Question by yanksfan: What is a good diet plan for a tennis player in training?
I want a good diet to lose weight and maybe an exercise plan.
Answer by Chuck
A complex question, this one
If you want to lose weight, I recommend Weight Watchers. They’re very supportive, they KNOW what it takes to lose weight, i.e., many little concepts and ideas to keep you on track. You do not buy your food from them; you still go to the grocery store, like a normal person. They encourage you to exercise; that is built into the plan. It’s not some “optional” thing that they hope you will do
If you go to a WW meeting once a week, dedicate yourself by showing up four times a month, listen to what they tell you, and DO what they tell you, your weight will come off, slowly but surely [the best route, IMHO]. You don’t have to be “perfect” to lose weight!
A number of books have been written on diets for athletes. You could go to an online bookstore and enter: “sports, nutrition” or perhaps “tennis, nutrition” into the search engine and see what comes up. You should get several “hits.”
And, of course, you could do the same thing for fitness but entering “fitness, tennis” into a bookstore’s search engine.
The first book under sources is about avoiding all the junk in our American diet. The next two are specifically about tennis and have sections on nutrition in them.
Here is a web site that has medical issues, tennis, and also nutrition:
Best of luck

Question by Ryan D: Where can I find a vegetarian diet plan for athletes?
I am a competitive figure skater and I skate 3-4 hours a day five days a week. I also do an hour and a half of off ice strength and cardio exercises, three times per week. In addition I do 3 hours of modern and ballet classes per week.
I am in fairly good shape right now but would really love to lose a few pounds so that I look better on the ice and you can really see my muscles.
Since becoming a vegetarian I feel like I have been having trouble eating as healthy as I did before. I am eating more ice cream and sweets. I also use to eat fish but haven’t been eatting it for one month. I would be willing to eat fish again if it will allow me to lose body fat. Also, my doctor said it would be good for me to eat fish because my blood is showing signs of having some sort of problem. I would really love to find a diet plan that I can stick to and lose weight. If anyone has any books, websites or personal suggestions that would be fantastic. Thanks for any help!
