“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

The No More Excuses Diet book shows us how to combine our 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.
Here's the deal. We all know how to lose weight. To lose weight, you need to eat reasonable amounts of real food, and move more. That's it. You do that, and you will lose weight and be healthier. The trouble most of us have is in finding and keeping our motivation long enough to see results.
Ms. Kang says it takes 3 days of concerted effort to bust through an excuse, 3 weeks to form new habits, and 3 months to make a lasting change in your life, so she suggests setting healthy goals in 3 week increments. She follows a method of flexible dieting which I love, and she encourages cardio (if you love it) but primarily weight-lifting as an exercise method. She also encourages exercise such as hiking or riding bikes with your family, keeping track of non-scale victories (such as upping your weights in the gym or accomplishing a marathon), and even different forms of mental "stretches" like prayer and meditation.
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.
I liked the practical approach took with the book. Maria starts by breaking down what excuses are and how they can stop our flow. She encourages that through hard work, your goals can be met. In the Introduction she briefly explains the cycles to her program. They are The S.P.E.E.D Cycle which is the liftoff and 3-day goal setting plan. The S.T.R.I.V.E Cycle is what I call the "work" cycle. This is where you face your excuses and problems head to head in three weeks. The S.C.O.R.E Cycle is the success phase. You have reached your goal and now are working on maintaining it and conquering new goals. The plan is to see this all happen in three months.
Maria's book is easy to read, the font is large, and it is user friendly. It contains pictures for at-home workouts, recipes and ideas for a motivation calendar. The book isn't so much about being a "diet" book but instead, it's about a "lifestyle change" book.
The book is very well written and with Maria's personal story and insight weaved through her solid, simple advice, it is hugely inspirational. I believe this book can make the overwhelming journey of taking back your body and becoming healthier really "easy" because she has laid out this step by step plan that is realistic and attainable for anyone.
Maria's philosophy is very doable and sustainable. this isn't a low carb, or low fat, or low sugar, or another "cut something out completely" diet. it's a balanced diet, and an expectation that you will do some exercise. cheat meals and cheat days are allowed - just get back on track when you can.
Here's what the book jacket has to say about Ms. Kang's motivation: The No More Excuses Diet is not about making you feel guilty for how you look, or ashamed of the choices you've made; it is about getting you to a place where you feel in control of your life, love your body, and prioritize your health.
