Fit Moms For Life-How to Have Endless Energy To Outlast Your Kids is an excellent
reference which explains the conditions precedent to having a successful fitness
program that will pass the test of time, as well as classic impediments to success.

The fundamental pillars are mindset or positive attitude. Little is possible if the
reader doesn't internalize the goals of the program. Nutrition is critical because
junk food can derail any serious effort at weight maintenance/stabilization over
the long term. Strength training is helpful if done incrementally and with many
reps.  Burst training helps to strengthen the muscles and shape the body.

Ultimately, the coterie of people around you is critical in order to
maintain confidence levels and a positive attitude. Naysayers can be a
detriment to this whole process of personal transformation. In addition,
participants must come to understand the things that hold each of us back.
i.e. past trauma, negative attitudes, negative belief systems, lack of
assertiveness etc.

Dustin Maher provides ample stories of successful participants in the overall
program of fitness and weight maintenance. The fitness program has numerous
exercises to depict the principles of learning like the front plank, push-ups,
wall sit, cardio endurance and others. The higher the intensity of the workout,
the longer the metabolism will be raised afterwar
d. Important tools in the
exercise routine are dumbbells, the stability ball, steps, yoga mats and
mechanical exercise machines like inclines.

The top 15 foods to eat include onions, sweet corn, pineapple, avocado,
asparagus, sweet peas, mango, eggplant, domestic cantaloupe, kiwi,
cabbage, watermelon, sweet potato, grapefruit and mushroom. Dustin Maher
recommends that eating be journalized. Sample meals are provided to
serve as a guide. Eating out requires a strict adherence to the main course,
portion control and limiting bread and chips. Another important aspect
is to read labels and eliminate transfats. Sometimes, blood tests can be
helpful to identify classic inflammation markers, although the book
does not emphasize this aspect.

There are excellent references in the back of the book. These references
cover positive thinking, nutrition, strength training and raising healthy
kids. Dustin's workout DVD programs are set forth at the very end
of the book. The presentation is easy to read, understand and apply.
The cost is reasonable.

Always discuss the program of nutrition and fitness with your personal
physician, physical therapist and nutritionist. Sometimes, a physician
may consider special scans like head/neck ultrasound to assess the
possibility of strokes from extreme head/neck range of motion exercises.
The presentation does not emphasize this aspect in body conditioning.

Make certain that you understand contraindications for every exercise
selected in the program. In addition, your physician may require that
you test for food allergies before finalizing the diet regime.
In addition, people with celiac disease cannot consume gluten products.
Gluten may be present in wheat, rye, barley and some other grains.
Celiac disease sufferers have an inflammatory response in the small intestine
when consuming even small portions of gluten rich foods. There is some basic
discussion of gluten in the presentation.
