India skipper Virat Kohli’s physical transformation in recent times has grabbed the attention of everyone in the cricketing fraternity. In fact, members of the Indian cricket team were inspired by his fitness regime and consequently started training with discipline.
Kohli, who recently recorded his 24th Test ton, has often attributed his stellar showing with the willow to his intense fitness regime. However, in order to attain such a flawless health condition, the 29-year-old has made serious changes in his eating habits and lifestyle.
As per a report published in TOI, it has been four months since the Indian captain has turned into a vegan and this decision has benefitted him immensely.
“Two years ago, when he was on a normal diet, he had said that he would go vegan if given a choice. He is now feeling stronger than before,” a source was quoted as saying by the Times of India.
“Kohli started this diet four months ago and is feeling stronger as his digestive power has increased. He isn’t missing meat, eggs or dairy,” he further added.
Twitterati had mixed reactions when they got to know about this news. While some welcomed the change and praised Kohli, a few others poked fun at him.
how about using veg language (stop abusing on field) as well...will do loads of good for the kids who look-up to him as a role model— Ravi Manuja (@ravimanuja) October 6, 2018

There is a lot of difference between being a vegan and being a vegetarian!! I am a vegetarian but being a Vegan is very very tough.— Adarsh Pansari (@iam_adarsh1) October 7, 2018
Lol why do people need to announce to the world their choice of diet? So self righteous and attention seeking— Jeff Porter (@jeffreyporter98) October 7, 2018
