Ni una Dieta mas- No more Diets!

“No More Diets” Ni una dieta mas!

By Betsabe Capriles

 On Feb. 16, the presentation of Karina de Jakubowicz’s new book, “No More Diets,” took place in Books & Books in Coral Gables. A full house began the even by listening to Dr. Salomon Jakubowicz, husband of the author and creator of the protein shakes featured in the book, which have been a great success in Venezuela. An emotional presentation lead the audience through the investigative journey of Karina as she created this book as well as a protein line of ice creams. Information on heathy eating habits such as the importance of substituting sugar and fat for protein were also in abundance. Karina’s main motivation for writing the book, however, was her concern with childhood obesity.

“We must teach our children not only to eat well but also to cook healthy. This will help us eradicate this horrible disease affecting our children today,” she said.

After a question and answer and signing period, all those in attendance were invited to taste various recipes cooked by chefs Jacky and Raul, who have joined Karina in organizing and leading the first No More Diets, nutrition workshop on March 25 in the Hotel Marriot in Coral Gables.

The tasters raved on about Karina and Salomon’s recipes and the cooking skills of chefs Jacky and Raul. The event was informative and interesting. You can buy your No More Diets book in Books & Books stores across Miami.
