MS Dhoni: Food and Fitness SecretsDhoni has always been a lover of sports; besides cricket he takes great delight in playing football and badminton. Though you won't see him often flexing and pumping it up in the gym like his teammates, Dhoni ensures regular physical activity to keep his game up and his fitness well in form. Indian Cricket Team's official physiotherapist till the year 2008, John Gloster was once found stating that MS Dhoni is one of the fittest Indian players among others icons like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid.
To be able to keep squatting while keeping the wicket and also turn out to bat in the second inning demand a lot of stamina, lower body strength and a rock-solid core - Dhoni seems to be acing it all effortlessly, with much finesse. Mahi has been quite vocal about his disinterest in sweating it out in the gym but has admitted to be a staunch follower of the fitness regime and diet routine recommended by the official trainers and the coach.
He attributes his fitness to his love for other sports and also to the place his folks originally hailed from - mountainous Almora of Uttrakhand.
When it comes to diet, MS Dhoni likes to keep it simple. His everyday meals are more of the regular ghar ka khana affair.
