On how she started working out:

“I love the science of the body, and I love to give information and see people utilize it in their own lives. I want women to know that it’s never too late to start paying attention to their bodies. Until I started training at 27 for ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ I didn’t. I literally quit smoking a month before. I was, like, ‘Ugh, I’ve got to do this training. I guess I should stop smoking now.’ We trained eight hours a day, seven days a week for three months, and I was dying. Crying every day. On Monday, I wondered how am I ever going to do this, but soon enough, I had a six-pack. At 27, I wasn’t consciously saying, ‘I’m doing this for when I’m 41.’ But at 41, I’m saying, ‘Thank God I started at 27.'”

Fit Mom Maria Kang: “I used disordered eating to fill an empty void”

On how she wasn’t always fit:

“I was always heavier … I was chunky.”

On her eating disorder past:

“I used disordered eating to fill an empty void. It was worse when I was feeling anxious. People often call bulimia the ‘good girl drug’ because we don’t do drugs or drink alcohol we just abuse food. It was a horrible habit. I felt like I had no control over my mind and I had such self-defeating thoughts. I felt a variety of emotions, sadness, guilt, emptiness.”

On how pregnancy changed her:

“I had to let go of being perfect, When I became pregnant with my first child I was like ‘Wow this is what my body is really made for?’ Be fit before you get pregnant.”

On why she offers fitness tips:

“I think fitness always makes me happier it makes you feel like you can control so many things in your life. It’s the ability to be set a goal, take action, remain consistent and create a result. that process takes a lot of discipline. I think that we’re obviously struggling as a nation with our weight. I work to be a role model. It’s important to love yourself and remember to strive to be better physically, professionally and personally.”

On what she doesn’t like about her figure:

“I don’t have long legs. I never wear skinny jeans.”

On the “What’s your excuse?” photo:

“If I can make health a priority as a working mom of three kids who has struggled with bulimia and weight issues, then you can too!’

Her advice on avoiding junk food:

“There are healthier fast food options that are affordable (besides McDonald’s). for example, I like the $1.50 grilled chicken wraps from Taco Bell.”
