9780062363909: Why Kids Make You Fat: ...and How to Get Your Body Back

The popular celebrity nutritionist and fitness guru for CNN and other media outlets, New York Times bestselling author of Body Confidence, and host of the “Mike and Mark—Get It Back in Gear” segment on HLN provides innovative solutions specifically designed to help parents permanently lose bloat, melt their belly fat, and live their best life for themselves and their kids.

It’s no secret that most of us gain weight and get softer with age. But one of the biggest spikes in weight and flabbiness happens when we have children. There are those tempting snacks in the fridge; those little extras they leave on the plate that would be a shame to waste.

It’s not our kids’ fault we gain unwanted weight. Our priorities and schedules have been upended as we give more time and attention to their needs than to our own. But when moms and dads forget about themselves and their health, they can’t be the best caretakers, role models, and people they want to be. Becoming a parent changes our lives, but it doesn’t take away one crucial choice: do we want to evolve our health or regress?

Mark Macdonald offers everyday strategies to help parents wrangle their busy schedules and put healthy eating choices at the top of their “to do” list— without banning their kids’ favorite foods from the house. Why Kids Make You Fat isn’t about living “healthier” but about living better. Without good health, he argues, the quality of life you want for yourself and your family isn’t possible.

Product Description:

It's no secret that most of us get flabbier the older we get, and it's no surprise that the biggest spike in weight happens in the early stages of parenthood. Mark Macdonald knows the struggle himself, having gained thirty-five pounds after the birth of his son. It happened to him even as a nutritionist and former fitness model, so he knew he wasn't alone in the struggle. Along with his wife, Abbi, Mark has created this proven eight-week program specifically geared toward parents to help them shed the weight, discover new amounts of energy, and most importantly, create new sustainable habits to keep it from coming back.

From the Back Cover:

Our children are bundles of joy who enhance our lives in innumerable ways. We love them beyond question. But let's be honest . . . they take a lot of time. For most of us, that means less regular workouts and not enough time to prepare healthy meals at home. It's a struggle just to get to the gym once a month and put nutritious food on the table. Even worse for your waistline are those tempting snacks in the fridge and the little extras kids leave on the plate.

Mark Macdonald knows this firsthand. A New York Times bestselling author, nutritionist, and fitness guru, he gained thirty-five pounds in the two years after the birth of his son. For women, like his wife, Abbi, it is even harder . . . they have to gain weight with each pregnancy, and then attempt to shed those pounds in the midst of stressful demands from the newborn—and often a severe lack of sleep. But we all face a choice: when we notice those pounds packing on, will we evolve, make changes, and reclaim our health? Or will we allow our health to enter that awful downward spiral?

Mark and Abbi know it is possible to re-claim your body, even in the throes of parenting. With this eight-week program, Mark has helped thousands of parents lose up to thirty pounds and rediscover the energy they thought was gone for good. The step-by-step program has three phases: Phase One, Detox, cleanses your body and helps you lose your bloat. Phase Two, Ignite, burns fat and melts your belly. Phase Three, Thrive, reprograms your metabolism and allows you to incorporate this new way of eating into a sustainable and enjoyable lifestyle.

With a comprehensive diet plan, specific workout regimen, everyday strategies to help parents lose the weight, and incredible success stories with before and after photos, Why Kids Make You Fat . . . and How to Get Your Body Back is a book that will help parents look and feel better than they did even before the kids came along.
