Virat Kohli is one of the most superlative athletes of this generation. Besides his cricketing prowess, Kohli has worked extremely hard on his fitness. He also motivated his teammates and India are currently one of the fittest sides in the world. The Men in Blue have also been a top-notch fielding side, much of that can be attributed to being fit.
Kohli also follows a strict diet and doesn’t indulge himself in any type of snacks or street foods to maintain his health. Kohli in a recent interview with The Indian Express spoke about his diet and fitness regimen and shared the dos and dont’s he follows religiously.
“There was a time when I didn’t focus on diet and fitness but in the past few years, I have really changed the way I eat and have become more disciplined. I try to always have an absolute awareness of my food intake. The dos and don’ts for me are quite simple — no processed sugar, no gluten. I also avoid dairy as much as possible. Another trick that has helped me keep my health in check is to eat to 90 per cent of my stomach’s capacity. For a foodie like me, all of these things are not easy but at the end of the day, when you start seeing positive changes in your body, staying healthy truly becomes an addiction.
“So, I make sure to stick to what I need to do whether it’s my diet, fitness routines, making sure that I don’t miss some repetitions or a couple of sets in the gym, or that I don’t snack on things which are not good for me. All these changes make you realise you can go beyond a limit and push yourself to be the best version of you,” Kohli said.
