Book Review & Giveaway: Fit Moms for Life


Until recently, I was the epitome of “burnout”. Working full-time, taking care of the kids, cooking, cleaning, etc. became too much. My husband came to my rescue with the cooking and has been tremendous, but that was still only one piece. I needed to recover my energy and take life “by the horns” again.

My husband and I are now on a determined mission to get our bodies and our minds as healthy as possible. We have been eating healthy for some time now, but the exercise department was completely lacking. I often excused myself from exercising because I didn’t “have the time” or “it’s too late to exercise after the kids go to bed”. I had to come to the realization that this time after the kids go to bed is the only time that I can exercise and I need to embrace that time. However, I need to make the most of the short period of time.

It must have been divine intervention that I was approached to do a review for “Fit Moms for Life: How to Have Endless Energy to Outplay your Kids”. This review could not have come at a better time. Written by Dustin Maher, “Fit Moms for Life” showcases the success stories for over thirty mothers that have lost weight and gotten fit by following Dustin Maher’s advice. This book discusses the do’s and don’ts of dieting and exercise but also some major points that many people are not aware of, such as:
Traditional Cardio Doesn’t Lose Fat
  • You Can’t Work Out to Compensate for Poor Eating
  • See Results 9 Times Faster With Burst Training
  • Learn ONE Exercise That Shrinks a Waistline WITHOUT diet changes
  • Burn Fat While You Sleep
  • A Healthy Environment Equals A More Fit Family
I have reviewed several types of diet books and this is the first diet book that I have found that really speaks to me as a mom.  Dustin Maher is motivational and does an excellent job explaining health, the basics of dieting and exercise, as well as teaching moms to focus on improving their whole self.  Maher provides food suggestions and discusses how you can teach your child to be a healthy eater as well.  The exercises that are taught in the book are easy to do and I love the fact that they can be done from the comfort of my own living room.

I like the fact that the success stories of so many women are incorporated throughout the book.  These ordinary women were able to achieve amazing goals, so why can't I?  I know that I don't need to lose weight, but I do have my own health and fitness goals.  I do have the goal of toning my muscles more and gaining overall strength and I believe this program can help me achieve this goal.  Whatever your goal may be, I think this book is certainly worth the read.
