"As a sportsperson, I am very cautious of what I eat. I advise sports enthusiasts don't eat KFC, drink unhealthy liquids and eat chocolates, basically everything which tastes well.
"Say no to junk food, stay away from KFC," Kohli said during the launch of an Adidas showroom.
"I also don't eat KFC," Sania added.
Kohli said people should also understand the sacrifices made by the sportspersons and should not criticise them during their failures.
"It is not all about staying fit but also about understanding the sacrifices made by the sportspersons in heir career. People should understand this before they criticise them for failures," Kohli said.
