Runyon opens the book by citing...and then promptly ripping apart all the excuses for not working out. His ripping apart can range from giving you examples of people who prove the excuse wrong (i.e. there are people missing limbs that struggle but DO get workouts in, what are you complaining about?!) to even addressing people that have provided terrible examples to our pursuit of a healthy lifestyle (he even goes after Oprah Winfrey...yes, OPRAH WINFREY!!!).
But Runyon is no dummy in his approach either in that he doesn't just hit you in the face with his "quit being weak and just go do it" writing, he realizes that in order to make REAL changes you're gonna have to change ALL aspects of your life. He brings in Brian Zehetner (MS, RD, CSCS), who writes about proper nutrition and offers fitness plan advice, and Rebecca Derossett (MSW), who talks about the best way to address and beat the psychological challenges that short circuit our thinking from becoming physically fit and nutritionally sound.
The last section of the book focuses on an easy to do 21-day fitness and nutrition plan to get you pointed in the right direction. While the workout plan isn't for someone who's been working out for a while, I think it can provide a great resource for things to add into your existing routines. I mean, you can never have enough new things to try right? And since we're ALWAYS looking for healthy snacks and meals to eat to keep us on caloric track the last section is just the ticket.
