Tennis Champ Venus Williams Credits Her Success To Vegan Diet
Tennis champion Venus Williams has pointed to her diet as one of the factors behind her athletic success.
The 39-year-old star — who has been a professional tennis player since the age of 14 — follows a primarily raw and vegan diet.
“Vegan For Health Reasons”
“I started eating raw and vegan for health reasons” Williams said.
“I needed to fuel my body in the best way possible…knowing how important a role my diet plays keeps me on track.”
“I try to make the majority of my meals raw and vegan, but I’m only human and am known to cheat a little bit. I joke that I’m a ‘chegan’ because sometimes I’ve been known to stray.”

Venus Williams’ Vegan Diet
The tennis star has opened up about what her typical daily diet involves.
“I’m not a morning person or a big breakfast eater” she said.
“Fuel To Get Me Going”
“I do need some fuel to get me going, but find it hard to scarf down a big meal first thing when I wake up, so I’ll usually have something light like fruit or a protein shake…Lunch can vary from sweet potatoes and rice to a green smoothie” she added.
“For dinner, I love vegan Caesar salads because they are super easy…I can whip it up quickly whether I’m at home or in a hotel room at a tournament.”
