Dustin Maher wrote the book FIT MOMS FOR LIFE, in this book he takes you step by step on what you need to do, so you can stay fit. When you read his Bio below, the first thing you will notice is his mother has to be very proud of the son she raised.
This isn’t your normal diet book, he’s not trying to selling you something to take for you to lose weight. What he is doing, is teaching us that it’s very important to make time for yourself. As a mother, sister, daughter and friend I tend to always put everybody else before my needs. This is no ones fault but mine, I’ve always been this way. IS it healthy? No, it’s not and after reading FIT MOMS FOR LIFE, I realized just how unhealthy it is.
Dustin Maher starts out by explaining how our way of thinking needs to change, before we can ever really commit to getting healthy. In FIT MOMS FOR LIFE you will find out that putting yourself first for at least 45-60 minutes a day 5 times a week can help change your life forever. Your mind set has to be positive, you have to be ready to change things, or you won’t be successful in doing this. You have to look inside yourself and really believe you’re worth it and that by doing this you will in the end be helping your family and friends in the long run, but most importantly yourself.
You need a strong support system, that’s where your family and friends are going to be your backbone though this life change. When you get ready to start, take a before picture so you can see how much of a change there is, also take your measurements before you start. Don’t have an obsession with the scales, mirror or constantly thinking about weight loss, food, or exercise. Take a picture and measurements once a month, you’re not going to do anything but upset yourself doing it everyday or week.
Set your goals and stick to them, keep an eating log of everything you eat. He explains what to stay away from and it’s not as hard as you’re thinking it is either, I was at first thinking here we go again. One of his rules is, if your great grandparents didn’t eat it, then stay away from it. You will be shocked at what you can eat, also he gives you 2-3 cheat meals a week. If you’re depriving yourself, you’re only going to get off course and you won’t continue. If you exercise more than 1 hour at any given time, it’s to much, unless you’re training for a marathon.

He loves helping everyone he comes in contact with get in better shape. He especially enjoys helping moms to look even better, than before having kids.
The first question he gets asked a lot is, why a 28 year old single guy loves working with moms. Well the answer to that question goes back many years to when his my mom raised 3 younger siblings and him, along with his dad. She was a stay-at-home mom and did so much for her 4 children. Looking back, he realized that she spent so much time taking care of her kids that she didn’t take time for herself. Nor did she have a good support group of other mothers who were motivated to get in shape and lose the baby fat. He feels blessed to have a mom that was health conscious and cooked very healthy. He learned a lot from her as she taught him what it meant to eat well.
He feels blessed to have been on TV nearly 100 times, and been featured on numerous radio shows, magazines, and newspapers.
Now he has a bigger mission, and that is to help 1,000,000 mothers to get into the best shape of their lives!
