Let me tell you that Virat Kohli had asked him about his diet on Monday in a ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Instagram. In response, Kohli said, lots of vegetables, some eggs, 2 cups of coffee, lentils, quinoa, lots of spinach, dosa, but all in limited quantities. After this statement of Kohli, many people started trolling him. Many people said that Kohli is an egg-eating vegetarian. Many raised the question that if Indian captains eat eggs then why do they call themselves vegetarian?
In fact, in the year 2019, Kohli said in an interview that he has become completely vegetarian. In the interview, Kohli talked about the effect of vegetarian food on his body. Kohli also tweeted after watching Game Changer, a Netflix show, that Kohli said, “Watched the game changer show on Netflix. After becoming a vegetarian I came to know that what I thought about diet for so many years was It was just a fantasy.
Kohli said, What a wonderful documentary and yes, after becoming a vegetarian, I have never felt like this before in my life. Let us tell you that Game Changer is a documentary produced by James Cameron, Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. In this, the benefits of sportspersons from vegetarian food have been told.
Saw game changers on Netflix. Being a vegetarian athlete has made me realize what I have believed all these years regarding diet was a myth. What an amazing documentary and yes I’ve never felt better in my life after I turned vegetarian.
