Diet Plan:

Sania’s secret behind her perfect game is her diet – in which you will find all natural foods full of vitamins and proteins. That’s because she requires more of energy to play well in tennis.

On-season, Sania takes plenty of carbs (since there is a lot of energy needed to play the game). While training in off-season, Sania cuts down on the carbs and eats more of protein.
Any guess what is her source of protein quota? Variety of meats and that includes biryani, haleem and chicken 65.

By the way, Sania loves spices. Like a true blue Hyderabadi, the tennis player is all for biryans and spicy curries.

In an interview she did with Sports Keeda, Sania said “I’m allergic to gluten, so that limits the food that I can eat. Indian food is fine in that regard; for a gluten-free diet it’s easy with the rice and stuff. I have dal and rice when I want to keep things light.”

Does Sania ever shy away from a big helping of biryani or a slice of cake? NO way. Whenever she indulges in foods rich in calories, she makes sure to do an extra 20-30 minutes of work-out the next day (to burn the excess of calories).
