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.

Praise For The No More Excuses Diet: 3 Days to Bust Any Excuse, 3 Weeks to Easy New Eating Habits, 3 Months to Total Transformation

The No More Excuses Diet was a labor of true love. I saw my wife, Maria Kang, apply her principles while juggling our 3 sons, managing care home businesses, leading her nonprofit, cooking and cleaning daily and writing every night after the boys went to sleep. I never know how she does it, but she finally put onto paper, how she organizes a demanding life, prioritizes health and strategizes daily excuses.” – David Casler, husband, father and Former Marine

"Maria Kang's goal is to inspire. She wakes you up and makes you think of what is possible! I lost 125lbs, became a No Excuse Mom and even built the courage to pose in a bikini as Miss July in a Fit Mom Swimsuit calendar. Nothing would've been possible had I stopped making excuses!" - Robin Fulford, mother, nurse

"One year ago I could barely run a mile and today I am training for a 50-mile ultra marathon! No More Excuses applies to all areas of your life; from raising a healthy family to being consistent about fitness. Now I proudly lead thousands of men and women of every age and fitness level to pursue their running goals." - Katie Myers, No Excuse Runners

“No More Excuses is not about perfection, it’s about striving to be better today than we were yesterday. When we feel our best we can give our best to our families. Maria Kang is showing that anyone can achieve their best selves if they simply drop their excuses and take action. For a generation of mothers who are ready to make their health a priority, her message is so refreshing.”- Barbie Caulder, No Excuse Mom Regional Manager, mom and Navy wife

“I went from 230 to 177lbs after I stopped making excuses. Maria Kang’s message is not just for moms, but for dads too! We want to be the heroes of our homes and I hope my children will remember me as a strong, invincible superhero, the way I still look at my own father. There is no excuse why you can’t follow through on the things that are important to you.” – Chris Watkins, No Excuse Dads
