Royal Challengers Bangalore star batter Virat Kohli has been one of the fittest athletes in the world as this trait has allowed him to achieve some seemingly unsurmountable feats. Behind Kohli’s incredible fitness, has been his strict and regimented diet, following which has been the star batter’s personal achievement.
Kohli's diet doesn’t have many cheat meals and hence when he shared a picture joking about his diet, the post went viral. On Twitter, Kohli hilariously explained the difference between his and team-mate Dinesh Karthik’s reaction when the RCB trainer Basu Shanker offered them a 'cheese pocket'.
Kohli posted a picture of him, Karthik and Basu where the RCB trainer was seen offering them something. The post was captioned saying, "Trainer test. Basu sir - do you want a cheese pocket? Me- no way, dk"

Further talking about Virat Kohli’s diet, the former Indian captain spoke about how his food doesn’t include any extra species as he generally focuses on eating steamed and boiled food. He then spoke about how salads are also a major part of his diet which includes some pan-grilled ingredients, olive oils and dressings. Further, Kohli also revealed how with his Punjabi background, he can't miss condiments like rajma, dal and lobhiya.
While speaking in an interview with Star Sports, 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”.
