The Healthy Mummy is committed to helping Mums of all ages tackle their health and weight loss goals. As part of this commitment,  along with Healthy Mummy Smoothies 45 +, The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge also has a Hormone Balancing Meal Plan, specifically aimed at helping mums 45 and over lose and maintain a healthy weight.  

 

The Healthy Mummy Smoothies 45 plus the Hormone Balancing Meal Plan has not only helped these mums lose weight, it’s helped them maintain their weight loss and made a healthy lifestyle not only achievable but enjoyable too.

Mel says, “I absolutely love the 45+ smoothie!  It tastes amazing, a real creamy vanilla taste. I love how versatile it is. The best thing is it’s tailored to what my body needs at my age.  It’s full of vitamins and nutrients as well as calcium and protein that’s really needed at my age. It’s also a great source of fibre.

My favourite is adding some frozen banana and peanut butter to it but it’s absolutely amazing just on its own. Great for those mornings to take with you as your running out the door.”


Melanie also had some health issues that meant having a hysterectomy. She admits that she wasn’t fully prepared for surgical menopause and didn’t really think about how it would affect her hormones.

Mel shares, “It was instant, no gentle easing in,  just full-on changes instantly.

My body wasn’t my body anymore,  that’s how it felt. Hot flushes, joint and bone pain muscles that I had just seemed to disappear.  My moods were all over the show, I couldn’t watch an animal video without crying.  Actually, I can pretty well cry over anything some days. 

It’s so much harder to lose weight and that belly fat my mum talked about was suddenly getting very real.”

“I cannot tell you how excited I was to find out the Healthy Mummy had been working with their nutritionist on a meal plan especially targeted for hormone balancing. 

“The plan is absolutely amazing,  easy nutritional meals that taste so good! 

“The plan has increased protein which is great for muscle growth and repair,  healthy fats to keep the hunger hormones away. Increased fibre which is great for good metabolism. Liver support which helps the adrenal glands which keep energy levels up.  And it also helps support blood sugars which is so important after the age of 45.

I have done the meal plan for a few weeks and I can honestly say I feel better in my body and in myself and I’m starting to feel like the old me again.”

Julie Banham

Catherine says, “I love having the 45+ smoothie for either breakfast or lunch.  I love knowing that it’s specifically targeted for my age group and helps balance my hormones, among other good things, and also knowing that it also has the vitamins and minerals I need to help keep me healthy.”

Age and hormones as I’ve gotten older have lead me to gain weight gradually, and most particularly around my middle. My energy levels have also decreased.

I love having a specially targeted meal plan specifically designed for over 45s. My energy levels have improved following the plan and I just feel better generally.”
