Virat Kohli's fitness mantra: Smoked salmon, egg whites & papaya for breakfast

Is he India's fittest cricketer ever?

Virat Kohli, Indian cricket team’s captain revealed the secret behind his unbelievably fit body and how he starts his day to stay fit and keep the flab away. In an interview with Gaurav Kapur on his sports talk show, ‘Breakfast with Champions’, Kohli categorically mentioned that it’s not just about spending hours in the gym but also what you have in your meals throughout the day.

How he starts the day:

The skipper’s day begins with an omelette made with three egg whites and one whole egg with some spinach, black pepper and cheese. The next serving is grilled bacon or smoked salmon followed by Kohli’s fruit bowl which consists of papaya, dragon fruit or watermelon. Kohli concludes the healthy breakfast with green tea with lemon.

It is pretty evident that science comes into play here to assess the food value he intakes.
