Whatever stage you are at in your weight loss journey, today we are going to share 9 AMAZING ways to CRANK up your results so you inch closer and closer to your weight loss goals.
What’s more – Our 28 Weight Loss Challenge will help you smash your goals. So, these 9 tips and tricks in combination with the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge will have you feeling amazing AND SMASHING your weight loss goal before you know it. Woohoo!
Okay ladies, it may be time to rethink your goals. Ask yourself are my goals SMART? That is are your goals specific, measurable and attainable? Not to mention relevant and time-bound?
Setting SMART goals are CRUCIAL to success – especially when it comes to weight loss. You can read more about SMART goals and how to set them HERE.
It’s really, really important to know your BMR ladies.
If you’re trying to lose weight, you want to make sure it’s it in a healthy and sustainable way, like the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge plan. Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the number of calories you’d burn if you stayed in bed all day.
The thing is, as your weight changes so does your BMR!
Our BMR can help us work out how much we can eat and STILL lose weight. Our BMR also lets us know how much you must eat to stay healthy. You should never eat BELOW your BMR calories, as this can send your body into energy-conserving starvation mode.
Eat more protein ladies. Protein is fab at keeping us feeling fuller for longer. It also enables us to build lean muscle. Our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Recipe Hub (which you get INSTANT access too when you sign up to our Challenge) is LOADED with high protein snacks and meals to help you along with your weight loss journey.
For instance, these Red Velvet Protein Brownies (below) are not only delicious and easy to make they are HIGH, HIGH, HIGH in protein.
Check out these 4 protein packed dinners using ONLY 5 main ingredients.
While you are at it, eat more fibre! Fibre is great for digestion, easing bloating and also helps keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Looking for an easy way to squeeze more fibre into your daily diet? Why not give our Healthy Mummy Smoothies a go. Our smoothies contain apple pectin, psyllium husks and rice bran fibre – which are fibre-rich ingredients. Our smoothies are loaded with other essential must-have such as Flaxseed meal (healthy fats), Pumpkin seed meal (protein) and Ginger root (metabolism boosting).
You can learn more about our smoothies HERE.
You need to commit to a plan so that you are accountable. Again, this is where our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge can help! Our Challenge provides COMPLETE support, meal plans, exercise plans and over 3,000 recipes – it makes you accountable. It’s essentially like having a PT in your pocket.
Ek! It’s easy to overdo the picking at night time. It’s super important you get a hold of your cravings and manage what you pop in your mouth.

Seriously – the wonders of water is endless. It’s not only great for your overall health, it is FANTASTIC for weight loss. Here’s how to squeeze more water drinking into your day.
Core muscles create a solid base for your body, allowing you to stay upright and stand strong on your two feet. A strong core enhances balance and stability and underpins almost everything you do.
Your core stabilises your body and support balance. It helps ensure that your movements are strong and pain-free.Weak core muscles contribute to slouching.
Core muscles lessen wear and tear on the spine and allows you to breathe deeply. Good posture helps you gain full benefits from the effort you put into exercising, too.
A good, strong core will enable you to get the MOST out of workouts and see the best results. PLUS there’s the added bonus of a toned, tighten tummy.
To help you TARGET and TIGHTEN your core, we have plenty of Core Workout Videos in The Healthy Mummy App. You can target your belly, reduce tummy fat and strengthen your core muscles in just 10 minutes!
Like our Tabata, DanceFit, Butt & Thighs, 28 Days Stronger Programme and Power Yoga workouts, our Core Workout videos are available to 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge members on our Challenge App under the exercise tab.
Stay inspired and motivated every day so you don’t lose the inner drive! The Healthy Mummy Private Support Group is GREAT for this. It enables you to connect with other mums, check out transformations and share your questions/concerns with listening, open and understanding ears.
Well, there you have it! Follow these 9 steps – and you’ll be at your goal weight before you know it!
If you are wanting to lose weight and improve your energy – not to mention – help improve your overall health and wellbeing – our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is an awesome program to check out.

Nic found The Healthy Mummy at a dark time in her life after her marriage had ended.
She wasn’t looking after herself let alone her 3 children. But all that changed. She says, “The day I found The Healthy Mummy was the first day of the rest of my life.
The Healthy Mummy is more than just a weight loss program. It’s a lifestyle but more than just food and exercise. My mental health is fantastic. My marriage is back on track and better than ever. My kids are happy and best of all we are happy together, being active and healthy. I owe The Healthy Mummy my life”.
When Heidi first signed up to the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges two years ago she weighed 135kg and hated every aspect of her body. Including the scaring all over her body due to 36 operations she had had to remove sweat glands to remedy a skin condition.
She says “I was unhappy, I hated myself and in turn I hated the world”.
Inspired by the amazing results from everyday mums just like her she decided to give the Healthy Mummy Smoothies and free recipes a go and started walking twice a day. She says “in the first week I lost 6kg and was feeling amazing. After that I joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and found a love for good healthy food I had never eaten before”.
Over the next 12 months she lost a further 65kg and completely changed her life. She says “I went from a life I didn’t want to be in, to a life I LOVE being in!”
After maintaining her weight for the past 6 months she is focussed on toning her body by following the exercises on the Challenge App.
She says “I really can’t put into words how much The Healthy Mummy has helped me change the way I think about my body.
I’m now so happy and love everything about my body, even the scaring. Thank you Healthy Mummy!”
Bec’s Healthy Mummy journey started almost 10 years ago with the very first Healthy Mummy book.
She says, “We have five little people and after every bub I have used The Healthy Mummy, the last two bubs I was back to normal by week six!”
