Revealing his diet, Virat Kohli said, “90 per cent of my food is all steamed, boiled. No masala. Salt and pepper, lime, that’s how I eat. I am not a big fanatic about the taste of food, I don’t care about the taste. Salaads I enjoy with a bit of dressing. Pan-grilled good with a bit of olive oil or whatever. No curries, I only eat daal (lentils). I would eat rajma and lobhiya as a Punjabi can’t skip it. I would eat daal (lentils) but no masala curries.”

Earlier, Kohli had himself acknowledged that he was not always very disciplined in terms of his fitness and diet. In an interview with former English skipper, Michael Vaughan for The Telegraph in 2016, the then-Indian skipper, Kohli recalled his journey from being a foodie and a “chubby” youngster with a “horrible mindset” to a star with extreme levels of athleticism.

In 2016, Virat Kohli said, “My training was horrible, I ate so badly, I was up until late, I was having a drink or two regularly. It was a horrible mindset… It was 11 or 12kgs heavier than I am now, I was really chubby. I changed everything from the next morning from what I eat to how I train. I was in the gym for an hour and a half every day. Working really hard, off gluten, off wheat, no cold drinks, no desserts, nothing. It was tough. For the first two months, I felt I wanted to eat the bed sheet when I went to sleep because I was so hungry. I was craving taste. I was craving delicious food. But then I saw the results.”
