Raúl de Molina, presenter from el Gordo y la Flaca decided he no longer wants to be “el gordo” and over the last couple of years we’ve seen him slim down. He even wrote a book called, La dieta del Gordo in 2008, but still has struggled and bounced back the weight. This time around he lost 47 pounds in just 4 months.

“I love candy, I live to eat,” he said in an interview with Mama’s Latinas. His biggest motivation for losing the weight is his daughter Mia, whom he went on vacation with recently and gained so much weight that he feared for his health. De Molina is a cancer survivor, he had kidney cancer about 10 years ago, and when you’ve had cancer in the past, you want to make sure you do everything to stay healthy. He originally lost about 90 pounds back in 2008 with the South Beach Diet, but this time around he did things differently.
“I continue to eat very healthy, including a salad and vegetables in each meal,” said De Molina to People en Español. He also eats every 3 hours to maintain his metabolism working up to speed, drinking protein shakes and exercise for at least one hour a day.
“I drink an espresso without sugar, something that I would never drink and that takes away my cravings for dessert,” he said. It’s been a great experience for the presenter and he shared the following tips for those that want to follow in his footsteps:
Try not to eat fatty foods: stay away from pasta and breadEat every 3 hours and eat healthy snack in betweenReplace a meal, preferably in the morning with a protein shakeDrink a shot of espresso when you crave something sweetWhen you eat at night, eat vegetables, salad and some type of proteinDon’t eat anything friedExercise at least 1 hour a day, 6 times a weekDon’t stay hungry
As you can see his journey has not been easy. One thing that he’s doing differently now than back in 2008, is that he’s not dieting. The South Beach Diet helped him lose 90 pounds, but after he lost all that weight, he gained it back. This time around, he’s not dieting, but rather adapting a healthier lifestyle and working out, which is why he’s been so successful at keeping the weight off.
