The EveryGirl’s Guide to Diet and Fitness: How I Lost 40 lbs and Kept It Off-And How You Can Too!
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Maria Menounos, self-proclaimed EveryGirl and host of E! News, comes a lasting weight-loss program based on the Mediterranean diet of her childhood that will encourage women to think “smarter, simpler, healthier”—a personal mantra that helped the star lose (and keep off!) forty pounds.
 
TV host and journalist Maria Menounos was once more than forty pounds overweight, low on energy, and often sick. Desperate for a change, she tried a wide array of diet and exercise fads—with zero success. Like most EveryGirl out there, Maria lacked the time, money, energy, and willpower to get in shape.
 
Determined to overcome those obstacles, Maria spent a year developing commonsense diet, exercise, and lifestyle techniques that transcended traditional nutrition and weight-loss plans. As a result, she lost the extra pounds, regained her energy and health—and saw her career take off. Now, applying those techniques and bolstered by the wisdom, insight, and secrets of some of the world’s leading health and fitness experts—as well as the glamorous, superfit superstars she interviews regularly—Maria has created the ultimate no-time, no-money, no-willpower guide to losing weight, getting fit, and gaining long-term health and success: The EveryGirl’s Guide to Diet and Fitness.
 
Inside, you’ll discover all of Maria’s secrets:
 
• her 9-step plan for losing weight fast
• her lifelong plan for health and well-being
• a complete blueprint for rebuilding your physical and emotional foundation
• healthy, delicious, and easy-to-prepare recipes
• the quickest, easiest, most effective workouts (no gym or trainer required!)
• 1,000+ tips, tricks, and techniques for losing weight, getting fit, and staying that way
• how to do it all when time and money are in short supply
 
The EveryGirl’s Guide to Diet and Fitness is simply the most complete, effective, and convenient manual for all the EveryGirls out there who lack the time, money, or willpower to change. It’s not merely a weight-loss book. It’s a guide to help you get fit, feel healthy, be productive, and embark on a longer, happier, healthier life!

  1. KeepReading

    After I finished the book I went back to Amazon to see if anyone left with the same feelings I had on this book, and was surprised to see only glowing reviews. I can’t help but wonder that since the book came out a few days ago, and most people have jobs (I happen to be on sabbatical, so have plenty of time to read diet books all day) the 20+ immediate 5-star reviews might, in some part, be powered by a PR machine. Maybe I’m jaded.I’m giving this book two stars. At the end of the day it’s not harmful. It’s not even a diet really. And since no one will screw up their lives doing it, it does deserve some credit. I had read an article by the author in Ladies Home Journal a few months ago with an excerpt consisting of steps for lasting weight loss. They seemed pretty doable and practical, so I pre-ordered the book. The two page spread in LHJ was basically the only worthwhile part of the book.The pros:-Maria basically tells you how she lost weight, which was to cut back on serving sizes gra…

  2. Catherine

    Maria made a few great points.She isn’t obsessive with fitness and I love that she emphasizes being more active by couting your steps. She is also very realistics. However, This book was VERY repetitive. A lot of what she discussed was discussed in her first book….

  3. Mia's Mom

    I really like and admire Maria Menounos but I was so disappointed in this book for so many reasons:-She overplays being overweight at one time. Her prior stature of 5’7″ and 160 lbs isn’t skinny but I wouldn’t say that she was “dangerously close to being seriously overweight.” There are probably lots of women out there that wish they were 5’7″ and 160 lbs.-The book starts off with her infamous Extra bikini photo. The false modesty around that whole thing really bugged me. She knew that she looked amazing and had no problem posing in bikinis for magazines, etc. yet called this experience “mortifying”…so “mortifying” that she included a full page photo in the first chapter of the book.-Like the reviewer below, I agree that she referenced her dad’s diabetes too often. She mentions several times how he was pronounced dead more than once. I’m sure she’s very proud of her dad, but that background could have stayed in the first one or two chapters.-She includes an interview with Perez…

  4. R. Warnaar

    Nothing in this book was new to me. And her braggy way of self promotion was getting to me.. Props to her and her flat stomach, but not exactly for the every girl. Lot of talking, little actual helpful tips….

  5. TravelnFam

    I saw Maria Menounos on Good Morning America and thought that she seemed “real” and ordered her books right away. After flipping through both of them for about 20 minutes I knew they had to go back. I feel like her books are her own personal brag books. Pages are filled with her in cute poses as she talks about her wonderful life achievements and losing her college weight. Though she and I are both in our 30s, I have had two children and have a much different income. We hardly relate. I just felt that it was a lot of fluff. Good intentions, but fluff….

  6. Anonymous

    The book was very redundant and mostly a picture book of Maria in bikinis. She constantly states that she doesn’t believe in diets but she writes a diet book. Doesn’t make sense. Not much to learn since she doesn’t believe in diets. Don’t like how Maria acts like she knows the struggle of an overweight person. She was thin her whole life, went to college and ate some junk food and gained some weight. There’s no way she can understand the struggle of a person who has been overweight since they were a child and on a lifetime of diets and a lifetime of ridicule from people….

  7. Maria.K

    bad book: this book is basically just about herself and her greek background. no real tips on losing weight, diet or exercise. THERE HAVE GOT TO BE BETTER BOOKS OUT THERE….

  8. Debbie Fugate

    No matter how you read her book, its all about her. It did not help. Looking at nothing but perfect picture does not make it seem like it is possible….
