The Chilean mine diet

The miners have lost about 10kg each after having survived on half a glass of milk and two mouthfuls of canned tuna every 48 hours until supplies ran out. They have been told to watch their weight so they will be able to squeeze through the narrow escape shaft that is being drilled, and given tape measures to ensure they keep their waists below 90cm.

The article is here; they are also being sent "games"; I wonder which ones?  There are many articles (Sp.) about the miners receiving solidarity from Chilean soccer players and institutions.  A formerly trapped Australian miner recommends that the trapped Chilean miners keep "a good sense of humor."  Right now they are gradually increasing their rations of cereal and hard-boiled eggs.
