As TV actor Mario Lopez readies himself for fatherhood, he has also come out with his new book, Extra Lean, with which he will share his secrets for staying lean without giving up on food that you love.
As he plays the role of first time father in real life, helping girlfriend Courtney Mazza with her pregnancy, he also readies to help America eat healthier.
Not only does Lopez speak about the proper balance of carbs, protein and fat in his book, he also offers tips on controlling portion sizes.
Also included in the book are 40 tasty recipes, because according to him, “if people don’t like the food, they’re not going to stick with the plan.”
And he doesn’t say you have to cut out the pizzas and the Mac and cheese either; he advocates portion control and discipline instead.
The book claims to be able to help a person lose 14 pounds in 14 days. He even has his staff be part of weight loss programs, where they are divided into two teams that will compete with one another to lose the most weight.
As for the prize for winning? Well that is going to be a big “cheat dinner” at Eva Longoria’s restaurant Beso!
