The No More Excuses Diet: 3 Days to Bust Any Excuse, 3 Weeks to Easy New Eating Habits, 3 Months to Total Transformation
Author: Maria Kang
Release Date: March 10, 2015
In The No More Excuses Diet, Maria shares lots of foundational fitness and nutrition information that is helpful to anyone who is beginning their wellness journey. It is also helpful review for anyone who already has a workout and diet plan, to reevaluate if what they are doing is consistent with their current season of life. It is super helpful in getting a schedule with workouts that are simple but challenging at the same time. (Simple, meaning they are no-fuss and not a lot of equipment involved.) I’m not super knowledgeable about nutrition and superfoods, but I like that Maria included recipes and foods that are healthy, but not expensive to buy and hard to find. She has also included motivational words to encourage women to be role models in the choices they make, and she also counters any excuses someone might make for not putting some time and effort into becoming healthier.
