Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote "How To Stick To A Diet" because I've seen so many books that tell people what they should and shouldn't eat, but very few books that contain the insights on how to actually follow through with those guidelines when someone is busy, on a budget, and most of all lacking motivation. 

I also believe the common idea of "going on a diet" as simply a means to an end like fat loss is keeping people from having long term success.  I want to show people the joy of eating healthy as a lifestyle so they are empowered to enjoy a healthy and fit body for the rest of their lives. 

The biggest obstacle to many people's health success isn't usually a lack of information about healthy eating.  If anything, there's too much information about diets that simply confuses people.  I believe people more than anything need simple strategies they can use to increase their motivation, change their habits, and overcome and stop emotional binge eating. 

While I wish I could claim credit for these ideas, most of what is written in this book comes from psychologists and various experts on achieving peak human performance that have taught me what I know.  Many of these techniques I've applied myself to change my own habits.  It was this knowledge (combined with plenty of hard work) that assisted me in going from eating junk food every single night to transforming my eating habits and maintaining a fit physique for the past nine years straight. 

I'm confident that when an individual seriously applies these techniques, they can't help but to tear through any obstacle that has stopped them before from achieving their health, weight loss, and performance goals through a healthier diet. 

Will it take some effort?  Absolutely.  But is that effort worth it so you can have the body you want and keep it for the rest of your life?  I'll let you decide that for yourself.

About the Author

My name is Derek Doepker and I am the creator of Excuse Proof Fitness as well as a fitness author specializing in overcoming everyday challenges to living a healthy lifestyle like limited time, limited budget, limited knowledge, or just plain lack of motivation. My passion for these things stems from my own struggle years ago living an unhealthy lifestyle and eating fast food every single night. I was addicted to junk food and my body was suffering for it. I wanted to change, but I had no idea how to overcome years of terrible eating habits and lack of exercise. It didn't help that there were millions of conflicting experts and books out there all saying something different. After intense research and plenty of hard work, I managed to get in the best shape of my life, and most importantly stay in great shape for the past 9 years. But it wasn't enough for me to see results, I wanted to help others overcome the same obstacles I had to face like a busy schedule and limited money. I also noticed many people struggling to get motivated, and this led me into spending years studying everything I could get my hands on when it came to psychology, personal development, and how to "hack" the brain to do what you want it to do. When I discovered that "willpower" is not the answer to making change, it started to make sense why so many people struggled to stay motivated. Having this knowledge of psychology, plus my special "ninja" strategies I developed over the years for overcoming time and money constraints, I set out to share my knowledge with others so anyone who wanted to get in shape would have the tools and knowledge to do so. For those ready to make the commitment to live their fullest potential, you are free to check out my blog where I offer free tips as well as my kindle books where I layout the most powerful techniques I've ever discovered for creating a rapid and permanent change in your body and mind.

Okay, I'll admit - I've read and reviewed more diet books than I can remember. Many of them have a few tips that I take to heart while others are rehashed info that don't mean much to me. This book was surprisingly different - in a very happy way :) Not only was the info a huge cut above the norm, but the author included links to info that I'd never seen before. The life and attitude hacks make a lot of sense - and I've decided that I can begin at least one of these. In going back through the book I realize one of the reasons I like it so much is that it pulls no punches in terms of expectations. This book does not offer a quick fix - but it does offer tools that WORK! (By the way, dear author - thank you for the YouTube channel info. I've already tried the quick spinach salad. Yummy)

This book is awesome!!!!

It's everything I needed to stick to my diet (Clean Diet + Zone Diet), it's inspiring, resourseful and very practical.

The mental exercises have greatly shiffted my mindset; before i used to feel deprived of my favorite foods, and cheated very often, (sometimes even every other day); now I know those foods are the ones that deprive me from my dreamed body. I am single minded and focused, I remember every single time before I eat what do I really want (leanness), I feel so motivated to follow my diets and even enjoy them.

I highly recommend this book.

Thanks Universe for leading me to this amazing book.

I would recommend this book to all of my family and friends and I did before I even finished.  This book helps to rework your thinking in dieting, lifestyle habits, and gives you just general good solid advice to changing any habit you want.

This ain't your grandma's diet psychology book! The author lays out some very specific reasons why people fail on diets (it's not the diet that fails, it's the person on it) and how to circumvent these pitfalls of human nature that we all carry around within ourselves. Do the mental work and preparation before adjusting your eating habits and you'll be successful for life and this book shows you how. Basic, yes...simple, not really...but with a little practise, you can overcome another diet disaster before it begins. You owe it to yourself to at least thumb through this book before you make any New Year's diet resolutions.

I feel much more empowered and confident after using some of the "mind hacks" to keep my engine running clean. After reading the author's other book on 50 fitness tips I was eager to learn more and glad I did. Derek Doepker speaks from experience and knows what it's like to struggle through any new diet so the content comes off as very sympathetic for anyone wanting to change their life starting with your health. Very informative and highly recommended.

This was a very quick read. Everything you need to get your mindset ready and focused was laid out very clearly. Get a pen and paper ready and follow along step by step, follow the exercises, and if you do that it will really help you stick to your goals. There's no crazy diet or anything, just tools to get your mind focused and motivated as to what you want, why want it, and how you're going to achieve it. I highly recommend this book and think the tips he uses can be applied to anything we want in life, not just dieting. Since I've read this book i've made better choices, and when I find myself wanting to reach for something unhealthy I re-read the steps and keep myself on track.

I thought I was doing a great job: around the first of February I stopped drinking all soft drinks and all fruit juice. Too many programs said juice was liquid sugar, and too many periodicals said artificial sweeteners were worse than sugar.
Well, I gave up juice, but I eat a variety of fruit because fruit has fiber.
At the end of two months I had lost nearly 20 lbs, so I told Bill, my husband of 36 years what I had quietly done. What did he do?
He started buying big bags of my favorite candy and leaving them on the kitchen table.
The author said one of the speed bumps on the way to a healthy weight is your environment.
Why would Bill do that? Every time I was pregnant we both gained weight.
I talked him into taking the candy out to his shop, and even got him to give up soft drinks.
Our children grew up eating a variety of vegetables, something neither he nor I had done. If you have children, do that now, today. Start good habits.
The only time our children had cookies was when we made them. Their favorite to this day is oatmeal butterscotch. Okay, I pushed them towards oatmeal because it was better for them.
This author puts common sense into words, but it's up to you to put words into action. The sooner you do, the better for you.
Diet alone usually doesn't do it, so find a place to exercise: walk your dog or maybe your spouse to start out- then move on to something a little more strenuous.
And stop drinking those soft drinks and fruit juices. I told you what that did for me, and that's without changing any other habits.

There was no useful information in this book. Mr Doepker takes too long to get to his point and when he does it's too simplistic to be of use. For example, in talking about getting your mind off the junk food you are craving his suggest thinking of something
else using the model of "if someone tells you NOT to think of a purple elephant, than that will be all you can think of". Definitely
would not recommend this book.
