Can you believe it’s March already? I don’t know about you all, but I’m totally over winter. Thankfully with spring on the horizon and our new March book club picks, I can wait out the cold weather a little bit longer.
Our first March book club is The No More Excuses Diet by Maria Kang. It’s perfect timing because all the snow and below freezing weather does not motivate me to move my body. Kang doesn’t just offer concrete steps to become more fit, but her shares her no excuses philosophy to motivate us:
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.
This is the first time we’re reading a fitness book for our book club, but I have no doubt we’ll have plenty to discuss!
