No pills, potions, lotions, diets that only let you eat one thing, or magical abdominal machines that make you lose weight. The key to El Gordo de Molina's success – and for everyone trying to shed some pounds – is combining a balanced diet with exercise. Raúl's does The South Beach Diet, which consists of eating four small meals every three hours. The TV host hired Ana María Amat to keep him on the eating regimen.
Breakfast (at 8:00 a.m.) - Egg-white omelet with low-fat cheese and tomato, low-calorie yogurt and celery juice with tomato. Early lunch (at 11:00 a.m.) - Crabcake-stuffed mushrooms and lemonade made with artificial sweetener. Late lunch (at 2:00 p.m.) - Greek salad with chicken and pea or tomato soup. Dinner (at 5:00 p.m.) - Curry chicken or tuna salad. This is just a sample menu. It's proven that if you eat smaller portions every three hours, it raises your metabolism, which forces your body to burn fat. Even so, consult a doctor to find out if the South Beach diet is for you. Learn more about the diet <a href="http:/www.southbeachdiet.com" target="_blank" >here.
A diet doesn't work if you don't exercise too! Talk to your doctor to find out what's best for you.
