WATCH: No more chocolate for Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal explains why he had to give up chocolate and talks through his love of golf.

The chocolate for the last couple of months was over. I changed a couple of things in my diet. After all the things I went through with my foot I just tried to lose some weight and to work the proper way to be ready for the season.

I love the competition in general. I have always been a multi-sport guy. I like to practise different sports. Unfortunately the last few years I have not been able to play football anymore, even different kinds of sports.

Golf helps because it’s not crazy, not dangerous, spend time with the people I like and in some ways I feel I am competing when I am not able to play on the tour.”

  1. S0 enjoyed the level of tennis your opponent took you to. Nice to see you able to respond with great energy. You are looking like the Rafa we know and appreciate and hope to see you continue,!!! I KNOW THAT IT FEELS GOOD TO RESPOND AS YOU DID TODAY,. VAMOS MAN.

  2. I’m also on a diet, only two days without chocolate but I can’t smile cause I’m dying inside and out. lol

  3. Ok Rafa no more chocolate you look amazing good luck tomorrow you are playing well vamosssssss champ all the best tomorrow 👍👏💪❤️🔥👍👏💪❤️🔥👍👏❤️❤️🎾🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  4. I’m so sorry that Rafa has had to give up his favourite treat. As a fellow chocoholic I really feel for him. It isn’t one food per se but the overall diet that matters. I eat one square of Lindt chocolate every single day and weigh 115 at 5’5”.

    Rafa told an interviewer on Spanish tv that when he’d get a craving in the middle of the night he found that Maria had hidden the chocolates in the back of the cupboard.😂 That being the case it’s probably better that he forgets about it completely for now as it’s too difficult to resist temptation.

    I truly hope that when he gets to bite the trophy this January 30th that they will let him also have a small bite of chocolate to go with it.❤️

    Vamos Campeón.

  5. No more chocolates for all of us ‘weight reduction is a must’ thanks for the advice Rafa Congratulations
