But the Belgian – who was blasted for being overweight after sealing his £150million move from Chelsea last summer – did not hide the fact he is also battling the urge to snack on buns at home.
He told RTBF: “It’s complicated for me. I’m trying not to eat a lot.
“I’m trying not to go into the pantry to eat a lot of buns, but it’s not easy.”
The 28-year-old has managed just one goal in his 15 appearances this season, and missed the start of the season with a hamstring problem.
Hazard had returned to the squad briefly in February before missing another three games with a second ankle fracture picked up against Levante.
But despite football coming to a halt amid the coronavirus pandemic, the winger continues his road to recovery through home therapy.
Hazard added: “I’m working with the physio online.
“He can’t come here anymore because he fell ill and has to stay at home.
“We started ten days ago, but he sends me videos from home.
“I’m working to strengthen my ankle and I’m doing what I can from home.”
