Virat Kohli’s diet is ’90 percent steamed, boiled food’ — find out if it is advisable to avoid oils and masalas
Former captain of India men’s cricket team, Virat Kohli, works really hard to stay in shape and on top of his game. As such, the athlete, who is also extremely particular about what he eats, recently opened up about his strict diet that has no place for deep-fried food or ‘masala curries’. In an interview with Star Sports, Kohli revealed, “When you are figuring out your fitness journey, you are trying to figure out all sorts of things, vitamins, extra hydration, protein, this, that, to a point where you figure out okay this is what works for me. This is the right balance”.
He added that initially, food was a ‘challenge’ for him but now he can eat the same food for six consecutive months, three times a day. “I mean repetition is everything. So the basic challenge that I felt in terms of fitness, is food,” the 34-year-old shared.
Opening up about his strict and restrictive diet plan, Kohli said, “90 per cent of my food is all steamed, boiled. No masala. Only salt, pepper, and lime, that’s how I eat. I am not a big fanatic about the taste of food, I don’t care about the taste. Salads, I enjoy with a bit of dressing. Pan-grilled is good with a bit of olive oil or whatever. No curries, I only eat dal (lentils), but no masala curries. I do, however, eat rajma and lobhiya; as a Punjabi can’t skip them”.
