India skipper Virat Kohli feels better after turning vegetarian
NEW DELHI: Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday revealed his fitness mantra and said he is proud to be a vegetarian now.
Taking to Twitter Kohli wrote, "Saw game-changers on Netflix. Being a vegetarian athlete has made me realise 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."
During his initial days of international cricket, Kohli was fond of chicken and he admitted that several times during media interaction.
Before 2013, 30-year-old batsman never gave importance to his fitness and as a result, he put on weight and lacked stamina during matches.
