So if the report is correct, Alonso is doing everything right, so far.
I don't buy that rule. It used to make sense 10+ years ago but dieting and fitness training has gotten to a point in which you can lose weight much quicker while also staying healthy. Alonso could have a personal trainer who he works with every day as well as a cook. He also could have a diet plan tailored to his body in order to lose weight. And one more thing to consider while most of us work a normal job and then hit the gym after/before work, Alonso doesn't. He could devote 4 hours a day to training and still have a ton of free time on his hands.
