Well, aside from the physical training, we have still been seeing our nutritionist, Isabella Alencar, regularly to discuss our food and progress with everything. We need to do some regular blood tests, just to see the levels of the various vitamins, cholesteral and everything – everything was good last time, though just to make sure that everything has stayed good and even, hopefully, improved.

Poor Natalia has, however, had to go on a diet for the next few weeks – she is into her third week of ten – to lose about 5kg. She is in good form, but Isabella and our personal trainer, Alercinho, think that it will help in all round performance. In the morning she has to drink a protein shake plus a slice of toast with something like cottage cheese. For lunch and dinner, it doesn’t mean that she has to avoid any particular foods – she just has to be limited. For these meals she can have two soup-spoons worth of carbs like rice, cuscus or pasta; two small pieces of chicken or beef or other protein; three soup spoons of vegetables, and salad. It is good because we have been eating pretty nice and varied meals after the gym in the evening.

As for me, I have to go back to a lactose-free diet for at least a month – basically there are suspicions that I have an intolerance to milk products, so no cheese, yoghurt, milk, milk chocolate or anything like that for me… shame because that pretty much covers all of my favorite foods! Have done this once before and it wasn’t too hard once I got into it… it’s just the thought of missing all these things which isn’t great! But I gotta do what I gotta do..!
