Cricket superstar Virat Kohli is known for his incredible fitness levels and has been a major influence behind ushering in the era of super-athletes.
His latest 46th century in India vs Sri Lanka series in Trivandrum on Sunday (January 16) led the men in blue to a historic win. India thrashed Sri Lanka by a record 317 runs in the third ODI to clinch the three-match series 3-0. The former Indian cricket team captain turned vegetarian in 2018. In 2018, Virat shared that he had decided to omit meat from his diet over health concerns, which included high acidity levels. 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. Moreover, my stomach became a bit acidic, my uric acid went high, and my stomach started pulling calcium from the bones which resulted in the spine issue. Hence, I had to cut down on meat and now I feel better than ever. Virat is very active on social media and shares his daily diet quite frequently. On Instagram, once during a fan interaction, Virat explained what he eats in a day. I eat lots of vegetables, two cups of coffee, quinoa, lots of spinach, love dosas too. But all in controlled quantities. It is commonly believed that an exclusively vegetarian diet is insufficient for top-tier athletes and that the protein offered by non-meat alternatives like grains, fruits, soya, and plants, is not enough to build strength and stamina.
