I wanted to review Extra Lean Family because being Mexican Mario has many issues I have when it comes to family tradition and eating. I myself am Hispanic and was born in Puerto Rico although my ancestors came from Spain. I have found this book to work for my family and me when it comes to nutrition, meals and our total health. In the introduction Mario points out how he struggled with eating right as a young adolescent and into his teens. He points out the main goal of his books are is to help others find the right balance when it comes to nutrition. Now that he is married and has a family of his own he has decided to extend that information with this Extra Lean Family book. Chapter 1 of the book is quick and focused on the metabolism, calories, servings good and bad fats and other information, including child size portions. Just a refresher if you already know some things and great insight for others who do not, especially when it comes to child portions. The second chapter moves on to what kinds of foods you should and should not have in the house, shopping for the right foods and food labels. Chapter 3 helps you maintain the Extra Lean habits. While chapter 4 is "the five week meal plan." which includes a grocery list for each week, simple family recipes and nutrition information. In chapter 5 the focus goes to the nutrition of the child, including healthy snacks, options for the picky eater and really good points on how to help your child eat better without being overbearing. Even if we can't get our kids to eat right we can at least show them how to by example, which later can be a great benefit once they get older and realise the importance of it, a great point in the book.Read more ›

I like this book because it describes the way I recently learned to eat correctly. As I read it, I was surprised to find my diet backed-up with reasons it is best to eat this way. Now I have more reasons to eat low fat and suggestions on how to achieve weight loss and healthy snacking. I am encouraged to learn I will lose weight and enjoy eating at the same time. It's wonderful to know that a way of eating healthy doesn't have to be a diet.

There are many good recipes. My family, even my kids, loved the food. It was exactly within my budget each week, which helped me to stop buying foods I didnt need and stick to my list. I even lost a jean size without exercising for about 3 weeks. But Im back to working out and I have seen even more improvment in my body's looks and energy.

I tried Extra Lean Family Meals from my local library and have really enjoyed the meals. Next week I have to return the book so I'm ordering it today from Amazon. I did the same with Mario's first diet book and still use it today (it has it's pages torn, food stains and the binding is coming off due to using it so much). I will probably end up ordering his first book again as soon as the old one becomes unusable. Would highly recommend both books. Liked the way he's incorporated a grocery list into his second book as it really helps. Thanks Mario!

I just got t his book. I'm half way through it. My only complaint that that is a supplement for another of his books. Still a good book for those who need to change their eating habits.
