Virat Kohli is a Punjab-da-munda and as everyone knows, stereotypically, they’re love for food is eternal. Virat is a big time foodie but prefers home cooked meals to eating out. He avoids junk food although he admits it is not easy for him to do so. He does not even drink or smoke! So, what does he eat? Does he cheat on his diet? What is the secret to his physique? Here is his diet plan:
Omlette – Three egg whites and one whole egg, Spinach with black pepper & cheese, some grilled bacon or smoked salmon along with it. For fruits, he has either a papaya, a dragonfruit or a watermelon. A good amount of cheese, gluten free bread with nut butter and 3-4 cups of green tea with lemon completes his breakfast.
LUNCH AND DINNER:
It’s usually grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, spinach and veggies for lunch and sea food for dinner that is unless his trainer tells him to put on a bit of muscle – then there’s more red meat on the plate.
He is quotes to have said, “I try to eat as light as I can for dinner. During game time, I have protein shakes with carbs. And I take my carbs from good sources”
- CHEAT MEAL: Virat’s favourite cheat meal is ‘Ram’s fresh chole bhature’in Rajouri Garden in Delhi along with some onions, mint chutney, carrot pickle & some chili pickle.”
In one of his interviews, he said, “People also suggest you shouldn’t make your body totally alien to this (junk) kind of food. Once you have a craving, it has a very bad effect on you so I try to have those ‘cheat’ days in between, but I don’t go overboard. The very next day, I make sure I burn that off.”
