Sally Loses Weight & Increases Her Milk Supply

My name is Sally and I am a stay at home mum to 2 beautiful yet incredibly infuriating children. My 3 year old son who never stops talking or moving, and my 16 month old daughter who we call ‘The Barnacle’ because she NEVER LETS GO!

I have currently lost 16 kg on the The Healthy Mummy weight loss program with 5 kilos until I get to my goal weight plus I boosted my milk supply.  Using the website I lost 8 kg simply by integrating the recipes into my life. Then I kicked it into high gear. I wanted to have lost 15 kilograms for my daughter’s 1st birthday in May. So I bought the Healthy Mummy Smoothies.

How To Beat Junk Food

junk foodIf you are following the healthy mummy weight loss plans and are trying to lose weight, you have probably realised that eating junk food is not going to be on your to-do list.

But if you’re like many of us, you may have one or two vices that you find difficult to resist (hello chocolate biscuits).

Or perhaps it’s not that you can’t resist them, but more that once you have one or two you end up devouring the whole pack in one sitting; leading to feelings of guilt (not to mention nausea).

Below, we have some tips that can help you to re-wire your brain so that the cravings and urges are reduced, and also to give you back some of the control that you may be lacking when it comes to unhealthy food.

1) Change the way you think

PCOS – Healthy Living & Weight Loss

In todays’ day and age, more and more women are being diagnosed with PCOS. Health professionals now say that 12-18% of women have PCOS with the youngest age being diagnosed is 11 years old. Of that they anticipate that 20% of women with PCOS will develop type 2 Diabetes by the time they turn 30 and 50% by the time they turn 40. This is an alarming high figure however lets’ start at the beginning.

What is PCOS: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

In Layman’s terms, it’s where a women ovaries are larger than normal and generally have many cysts/ follicles that rarely grow to maturity or produce eggs capable of being fertilized.

Basic biology: Once a month, the body prepares itself to release an egg, it creates a cyst/ follicle on the wall of the ovary this grows and develops and then when the egg is mature/ripe it is released into the fallopian tubes and moves it’s way down to the uterus.
