Time to get fit for the holidays

From the August 5 cave-in until they established contact with the surface 17 days later, the miners rationed themselves to two spoonfuls of tuna, half a cookie and a half-glass of milk every 48 hours. Once rescuers discovered the men with a narrow perforation drill, they began sending them hydration gel, soup and medication in narrow plastic tubes called "doves". Later doctors transitioned the men to a solid diet including meat and rice, with a strict 2,200 calorie diet to keep them slim enough to fit in the evacuation shaft only 61 centimetres in diametre.

That's the answer.  I need to be put into a caved-in mine for 69 days although I'm sure I'd be the only person in the history of caved-in mines to not lose any weight.
