Since we last saw him on Below Deck Mediterranean, João Franco has made some drastic changes in his life. For one, the former bosun is now a captain. He's also about to become a husband: Back in March, the Zimbabwe native slipped a gorgeous, halo round-cut diamond onto Michelle Dicu's finger. And after coming clean about his struggles with drinking, João publicly committed to quitting alcohol.
The captain has stayed the course with his decision, and he recently shared an update on his so-called "#soberlife." In a May 19 Instagram post, João wrote: "Not waking up a single day in almost 3 months with a hangover has been AWESOME!" He added: "I have been in near impossible situations where I thought I’d crack but nada!"
But even if staying off alcohol is, mercifully, not as hard as he expected, João is facing down another new challenge. Tagging online fitness coach Shaun Mackenzie, the yachtie continued his post by talking about his new diet. "Thanks to [Shaun for] keeping me on track with my diet too. It’s harder than not drinking, I tell you!!!"
The trainer offers eight-week and 16-week programs, which include custom nutrition and training plans for clients. And based on João's happy glow, it looks like his new lifestyle is energizing him in a major way:
