Though he is best known for his colorful and outgoing coverage of some of the most-watched televised events (including the Latin Grammys, the World Cup and his annual New Year’s Show in Times Square), Raúl is also known for his best-selling book, “La Dieta del Gordo,” which details his 60-plus pound weight-loss and tips for healthy eating.
