Mario Lopez Interview
7 Healthcast: Mario Lopez Interview
Now, he's dishing up some healthy living tips in his new book.
“Educating yourself and not being scared of food...you should love food like I do," said Lopez.
His new book, "Extra Lean: The Fat-Burning Plan That Changes the Way You Eat for Life," offers rules to live by.
“Three simple rules I like to stress are, No. 1, having carbs, protein, and fat at every meal. No. 2, eating frequently throughout the day. And No. 3, portion control. We've become this society of all you can eat buffet, big gulps, and these large plates," said Lopez.
The book lays out a seven-week nutrition plan that can help you lose up to 14 pounds in 14 days.
"Embracing food, learning to embrace food, learning the basics of nutrition, changing your body and life forever because diets don't work," said Lopez.
Mario said he's looking forward to the Health & Fitness Expo.
"I’m excited to get to Boston soon, awesome city, and I love every time I get to visit out there," said Lopez.
And he knows a thing or two about the home teams!
"Congratulations to the Celtics, they're surprising a lot of people, and they're looking good. You know, there's some LA boys on that Celtics team...Paul Pierce is from this area out here. And Kevin Garnett, I happen to know him and his family. He's a great guy," said Lopez.
He hopes Boston fans will also become fans of his.
"Boston's a great sports town, great town in general, and I love the way they get behind their franchises there, so hopefully they'll get behind 'Extra Lean' if they are serious about wanting to lose weight," said Lopez.
Mario Lopez will be at this year's 7NEWS Health & Fitness Expo.
