It was in 1984 that actor and TV host Mario Lopez got his start in the show business. He made his debut in the TV series a.k.a. Pablo. At the same time, he became a regular cast member of the show Kids Incorporated where he was a dancer and a drummer. He became further known in 1989 after he began playing the role of A.C. Slater in the show Saved by the Bell. In the ’90s, he reprised his role in Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class. He also played the same role in some Saved by the Bell TV films.
In 1995, he started his hosting work first with the show Masters of the Maze. He then returned to acting as Bobby Cruz in the TV series Pacific Blue. In the 2000s, he landed more hosting gigs, such as in The Other Half and Pet Star. He also played Dr. Mike Hamoui in Nip/Tuck. From 2008 to 2012, he was the host of the talent show America’s Best Dance Crew. It was also during this time he began appearing as one of the hosts in Extra.
When it comes to his fitness and health, Mario Lopez makes sure he does right by his body. For this reason, he follows a healthy and a clean diet plan that mostly consists of whole foods. He basically avoids processed and junk foods. For instance, he makes sure he eats the right types of foods after he works out. He said: “After I train, I believe it’s critical to refuel, so I’ll hit another whey shake, but I’ll hit some faster-digesting carbs to replenish my system, like a sports drink or even white bread.”
Despite being busy, Mario also manages to stuff his body with healthy meals. How does he do this? He revealed: “The key to eating healthy while accomplishing your goals on a busy schedule is to always have food at-the-ready. I suggest trying to prepare food the night before and keep it with you. If entire meals are tough to prepare and carry, make sure that you have two or three easy-to-eat snacks with you throughout the day.”
