Indian captain Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the fittest athletes in the world, let alone India. Known for his finicky diet routine and workout schedule, the Indian skipper has infused a culture of fitness in the Indian team too, with the standards of it rising for each of the players.
The 32-year-old, however, left all his supporters and followers confused by an answer that he gave during a recent Question & Answer session on his Instagram account. Questions there ranged from how he tackles social media trolls to a bowler from the past who would have troubled him.
Given his admirable fitness standards, it was not a surprise that quite a few wanted to know what does he include in his regular diet plan. In one of the questions on his diet, Kohli revealed that he has “Lots of vegetables, some eggs, 2 cups of Coffee, quinoa, lots of spinach, love dosas too. But all in controlled quantities.”
Kohli’s response leaves all bemused
His response caught many by surprise as he had earlier revealed that he is vegan. “I had a cervical spine issue which resulted in a tingling sensation in my little finger making it difficult for me to bat. It happened around the Centurion Test in South Africa in 2018.”
“Moreover, my stomach became a bit acidic, my uric acid went high and my stomach started pulling calcium from the bones which actually resulted in the spine issue. Hence, I had to cut down on meat and now I feel better than ever,” Kohli had stated on an Instagram live session with Kevin Pietersen last year.
Some social media users, however, suggested that a person can change his dietary habits after some time, suggesting that perhaps he brought the changes in the recent past or so.
Meanwhile, Kohli is currently under hard quarantine in a Mumbai facility alongside the 20-member UK contingent that is set to fly to Southampton in a chartered flight to take part in the inaugural World Test Championship’s final against New Zealand, which will be played at the Ageas Bowl from June 18-22, followed by a five-Test series against England starting from August 4th.
