Indian skipper Virat Kohli is one of the fittest cricketers in the world. He has taken his fitness game to another level and that has helped his batting also. Kohli follows a strict diet routine and workout schedule to maintain it while he has also influenced his fellow teammates to follow the fitness routine as well.
Following a strict diet chart, Kohli has become a vegan along with his wife Anushka Sharma, who is a brand ambassador of PETA. Kohli stopped eating his favourite dish – Butter Chicken, just to be in perfect shape while playing the game.
Meanwhile, Kohli confused his followers during a recent chat session with his fans. He is in isolation before leaving for the UK and found some free time to conduct a Q & A session with fans on Instagram.
One user asked Kohli about his diet routine, to which he replied, “Lots of vegetables, some eggs, 2 cups of Coffee, quinoa, lots of spinach, love dosas too. But all in controlled quantities.”
This came as a surprise to everyone as Kohli claims himself to be a vegan. He revealed it during a chat session with Kevin Pietersen last year.
“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,” Kohli had said.
“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.”
Twitterati didn’t take Kohli’s response well and questioned how can he be a vegan while he eats eggs.

Virat Kohli claims he is a vegan but in his latest AMA, he said his diet includes eggs. That's bothering me.
