Carlie Has Lost 19kg

Hi Healthy Mummy Team!

Here is my updated progress after using the healthy mummy weight loss plans

Well I’m finally under the 70s and have now lost 19 kgs so far on the healthy mummy plans.

It has been a little slower and a little harder to see results on them scales every week but it’s still slowly going down.

I feel amazing and I even went in the pool with my daughter and felt great I’ve really learnt to love my new body.

I’ve been upping the exercise routine in the past few weeks with a fitness class once a week which I love and it gives me a bit of “me” time :)  

Donna’s Has Lost Over 17kg

I feel like I have turned a corner this month and no longer feel like I am on a “diet” this is now becoming a way of life!

I have now been following the Healthy Mummy programs for 4 months and I have lost over 17kgs and I truly believe that success will come if you think of your weight loss as a lifestyle change and not a diet or quick fix and The Healthy Mummy program and products can really help you to achieve this!

What is BMR & How Does It Effect Weight Loss

What is BMR?

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) – is the minimum number of calories your body needs at rest to fuel its metabolic activity, for example to maintain functions such as heart beat, breathing and temperature. Basal energy expenditure usually accounts for about 50-80 per cent of total energy needs. Your total daily energy expenditure is made up of three components:

  • basal energy expenditure;
  • energy needed for physical activity; and
  • energy required to metabolise your food.

If you continually eat below your BMR, your body WILL find those calories from somewhere, and the most efficient place to take them from is not fat, it is muscle. Muscle burns more calories than fat, so if your body dumps muscle, it doesn’t need as many calories to make it through the day. It will find a way to equal what you are giving it. You can use our calculator here to work yours out

Why does a very low calorie intake slow down weight loss?

Quite simply, your body goes into ‘starvation mode’. This mechanism, which is thought to have evolved as a defence against starvation, means the body becomes super efficient at making the most of the calories it does get from food and drink.

HIIT For Fat Burning

On the Healthy Mummy plans, we focus on HIIT (High intensity interval training) as more and more research is showing it to be the best ways to lose fat.

The short amount of time required to perform each workout is also PERFECT for busy mums and this is why all the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge daily exercise routines include HIIT.

HIIT Explained

HIIT is often described as a workout that is made up of intense bursts of effort (60 seconds) and short periods of recovery or reduced activity (30 – 60 seconds).

Low Calorie Mango Yoghurt Pudding

healthy_eatingThis tasty, easy-to-prepare Mango & Yoghurt pudding is a great, low calorie dessert to include in your healthy eating plan when you’re trying to lose weight.

This recipe can easily be adjusted or modified to include your favourite ingredients.

Simply substitute the pistachios for other nuts like crushed almonds, walnuts or macadamias. Alternatively, you can top the pudding with LSA, shredded coconut or cacao nibs if you feel like a chocolate hit.

If you want to use other fruits instead of mango, then blueberries, raspberries or peaches would work well in this recipe too.
