Diet Plan of Virat Kohli:
Virat Kohli has gone into a tremendous transformation from a chocolate boy to the fitness master and all this would not have been possible without following a proper diet. With his team of dieticians and trainers, he is following a diet which can be smoothly sneaked into his daily lifestyle.
- Being a Punjabi Munda, he loves chicken and paneer and freshly cooked homemade food.
- When he started his journey towards a fitter body, he knew it won’t be an easy task. He initially modified his diet a bit to be able to take his first step.
- Not eating much was never Virat Kohli’s style of remaining fit. He loves eating food just like any other Punjabis and hence he has just twisted his favorite foods into a healthier version.
- He has replaced his fried chips with alternative wheat crackers.
- During breakfast, he makes sure to consume complex carbs, fats and complete protein. This includes 3 egg whites; one whole egg – omelet with spinach black pepper cheese, some grilled bacon or smoked salmon along with papaya or dragon fruit or watermelon with a good amount of cheese for calcium.
- Later he also carries his own nut butter. The purpose of carrying nut butter is while he is traveling; he can apply the butter on the gluten-free bread and enjoy it without any guilt. Nut butter would give him a good amount of quality fats.
- Whenever he feels like having tea, he will have green tea with lemon.
- His lunch and dinner both comprises of grilled chicken or grilled fish, mashed potatoes and sautéed veggies. In case, his trainer will ask him to improve on muscle mass he will include red meat too or else he sticks to his usual diet regimen.
- He allows himself one cheat meal a week and he gorges on his favorite meal – Chole Bhature.
He is very dedicated towards his diet regime, he follows it very strictly.
