Don’t let excuses stop you from having a body and a life that you love!

We all know that we should exercise and eat right, so why is it so hard to follow through? We make excuses for why we aren’t taking better care of ourselves, saying things like, “I’m too tired,” “I don’t have time,” or “I’m just not built to look that way.” But Maria Kang, the mother of three behind the viral “What’s Your Excuse?” mom photos, is here to say that the excuses stop now.

The No More Excuses Diet combines short term goals with healthy habit-forming behaviors to create permanent lifestyle changes. Using a specially designed transformation calendar, readers set clear, personal goals and make an easy-to-follow plan for each day. The program uses a balanced diet of 30% carbs, 30% protein, 30% fats, and includes a 10% flexible portion that can be customized depending on your goals— whether it’s extra protein for building muscles, or a sugary treat at the end of the day.

The No More Excuses Diet also provides a completely customizable workout guide, with over 50 illustrated exercises designed to build strength, flexibility, endurance, and to shed fat. The program also includes 7 weeks of worth of exercise programs that can be done at home with no extra equipment.

Packed with meal plans, grocery lists, lots of encouragement and a clear plan of action, The No More Excuses Diet is a must-read book for anyone who is ready to bust through the excuses the hold them back and take their health and fitness to the next level.

My Review

I really wasn’t sure what to expect from “another diet book”…BUT this is not just another diet book.
The No More Excuses Diet was exactly the jump start I needed to continue on my personal weightloss journey.
I admit, I’ve fallen off track, gotten discouraged, read loads of books on the subject…BUT there is something special about this book!
Maria literally takes you step by step. She will help you gather supplies to lay out a personalized plan that works for you.
She will bust EVERY excuse in the book….from “I don’t have time” to “I can’t afford it” to “I just love food too much!” (The last one is definitely one of my personal fave excuses.) Maria will help you overcome excuses in very practical ways.
She tells you what to do if it’s not working. I have never….I repeat NEVER read a fitness, diet, weightloss book that gives you a step by step guide for handling failure. Most diet books say- here’s the plan, now stick to it or else! Using the acronym S.T.R.I.V.E this book will help you tackle those moments when the excitement has faded, real life kicks in and you feel like giving up. This was one of the most important aspects of this book for me personally.
Overall, this is honestly one of the most positive, uplifting, practical weightloss books I have come across. I love the At-Home Workout Plans! They are easy to understand and practical….you don’t need a lot of complicated equipment.
This book would be a wise investment of you money and time. It is jam-packed with step-by-step tips and motivation for busting your weightloss excuses. Grab your copy today!
