From being a chubby cricketer to a completely fit person, the transformation of Virat Kohli is unbelievable. In fact, he is one of the fittest cricketers at present.


Kohli is also one of the best batsmen of the current era, and the Indian skipper leads from the front when it comes to applying discipline in life. His love for fitness has inspired not only his teammates but everyone who follows him and his style of play.

The mantra of Kohli’s supreme fitness is his habit of maintaining a strict diet regime, over the years, in order to remain on top of his game. But back when he was a youngster, he loved a variety of foods. The Delhi-born has recently revealed what he would like to eat if he gets a cheat day.


During a live chat with Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri on Instagram, Kohli revealed his dream ‘cheat day’ menu.

It all started when Chhetri asked Kohli what he would like to eat if he was given an off day with no regrets. The 31-year-old responded by saying that he is a massive foodie from inside but keeps himself in control. Kohli spoke about the items he would eat on his dream cheat day, though the Delhi-lad didn’t include any non-vegetarian dishes probably because he has turned vegan.

“Because it is about eating, I will wake up early in the morning. There’s a big foodie inside; I just don’t let him wake up. So I will take the Marie biscuits, will then take the cream off the milk and would make a sandwich with 20 biscuits. And put in the fridge. This will be the sweet dish for post breakfast,” said Kohli.


“I will go to eat two plates of Chhole bhature with pickle and then will have lassi from Sadar Bazar. Then I will eat the biscuits kept in the fridge. Then I will rest for some time. For lunch, I will eat two plates full of Rajma Chawal. For evening snacks, I will have paneer patty with the hot and sweet sauce not just some normal sauce but Hot and sweet sauce,” added Kohli.

“In the night, daal makhani, garlic naan, paneer khurchan, and then Gulab Jamun with ice cream for dessert. But I won’t sleep after that, I will go for a walk and then eat cassata ice cream, and after that, I will have the mouth freshener,” the batting phenom added further.
