La Dieta del Gordo: Como Perder Libras Sin Pasar Hambre

Raul De Molina, Author Grijalbo $18.95 (195p) ISBN 978-0-307-39241-1
De Molina's chubby face and large body have long been familiar to the millions of Univision viewers, who for 15 years have watched him report on the rich and famous for such shows as Primer Impacto, Hola Am\xE9rica, and El Gordo y la Flaca. In addition, his photojournalism has been featured in magazines like Time, Newsweek, and Life. De Molina has been overweight since childhood, and his love of good food and erratic schedule helped balloon his weight to 340 pounds in 2007, when he started the South Beach diet. Here he shares his story as an overweight man, the factors that finally motivated him to lose weight, and the principles and diet plan that helped him. Although the book covers all of the basic weight-loss topics-e.g., changing one's eating habits and understanding the importance of exercising-it is not a weight-loss manual but rather the revealing and engaging story of one very popular icon. De Molina writes in a personal and informal way that recalls his TV persona, and the encouraging tone will push readers with weight-loss problems to take action. Highly recommended for all public libraries and general bookstores.-Yolanda J. Cuesta, Cuesta MultiCultural Consulting, Sacramento, CA
