BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Known for his amazing body and his dynamic personality, Mario Lopez has taken his love of health and fitness and put it into writing with Extra Lean:The Fat-Burning Plan That Changes the Way You Eat For Life.

Along with health physiologist and personal trainer, Jimmy Peña, and renowned nutritionist, Dana Angelo White, Mario clearly identifies optimal combinations of daily nutrients, transformative eating habits and invigorating mental conditioning tools that will truly redefine your approach to food. By following this seven-week plan, your metabolism will become a fat-burning machine allowing you to splurge on special days, weekends or vacations with little to no effect on the scale.

Lopez also says that you can lose up to 14 pounds in 14 days if you follow his plan correctly.

With over 40 delicious and easy-to-follow recipes and a seven-week meal plan, Extra Lean is the complete program to change your body and the way you eat for life.

DIET and NUTRITION

In his first diet book, Extra Lean, Lopez imparts his fool-proof plan for permanent weight loss while eliminating the guilt from enjoying the foods you love.

“This isn’t a diet book. Diets don’t work. This book explains why you shouldn’t be scared or guilty about having food. The only exercise I focus on in the book is when to push away from the table. If you really want to lose weight, it’s all about food," says Lopez in regards to his Extra Lean plan.

The Extra Lean plan trains your body to constantly burn fat by following three simple steps:

  1. Balance your daily intake of carbs, protein and fat.
  2. Practice proper portion control.
  3. Eat frequently throughout the day.

There is a strong focus on clean-eating and avoiding foods that are overly processed. Vegetables, lean proteins, fruits, nuts and lots of Greek yogurt are staples of the Extra Lean eating plan.

EXERCISE

Even though from the looks of Mario's abs, exercise is a big part of his healthy living routine, exercise is not the focus of this book.

CONCLUSION

Mario Lopez has been named by People magazine as one of the Sexiest Men Alive and now with his first diet book, Extra Lean, he is sharing his own nutritious and fat-burning eating plan with anyone who wants to capture the secrets of his amazing looks.

This seven-week plan is a no-diet plan that is heavy on what you'll eat and light on how you'll workout. The focus is on eating clean whether you're picking up snacks for your week or cooking an evening meal. Plus, its frequent mini-meal plan that incorporates a steady balance of carbs, healthy fats and protein is supposed to stoke your metabolism as your clothes start to feel looser.

Maybe Lopez will follow-up this first and inspiring diet book with an exercise book that tells you how to get those signature rock-hard abs!

The book is great! It's a wonderful "how to" guide to start eating in a healthy, natural and organic way. It educates the reader on the importance of balanced diet, proper portions and great meal ideas. My husband and I both have followed the Extra Lean meal plan and have seen great results, without being hungry! I've seen the results and I've recommended the book to many people. It's not a diet book, it's a book that will change your lifestyle.
