Sindhu picked the Bronze in two decisive sets, keeping her calm and giving the sport her best. Let’s have a glance at PV Sindhu’s diet.

Sindhu’s meal plan is concentrated mainly on control of weight, hydration and therefore the recovery system through protein-rich foods.

Her breakfast is filled with proteins including milk and eggs. She also eats fruits within the morning. During training, she eats a snack in between sessions like dry fruits to stay her fresh and energised.

  • She eat rice daily both for lunch and dinner. She eats vegetables along side it. She doesn’t cook herself. Her mother takes care of all of that.
  • During tournaments, she eats rice with chicken.
  • She also goes for bio-check every two months to watch her vitals. Her diet is then tweaked accordingly.
  • After winning a match, she likes to gorge on nutriment like cakes, pastries, frozen dessert and chocolates.
  • Talking about what helps her recover fast after a game, she says that bananas, protein shake and snack bars are her three go-to items.
  • She also relies on snack bars that help in replenishing her energy after an intense training session. “I usually make it some extent to eat something within half an hour after my match then do my stretches and relax for a touch .”, she said.
