Nicola’s Healthy Mummy meal plan

Nicola, 36, says after seeing that photograph in December 2016 and she says she feels less tired than she used to.

“Before I started my Healthy Mummy journey, I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. I was constantly tired and would struggle to stay awake throughout the day,” she says.

“I would have daily sleeps when my children did and I was a chronic snorer. It was majorly impacting my health and potentially my lifestyle as my doctor was recommending I shouldn’t drive as my diagnosis was so severe!”

The Queensland-based mum says at her heaviest, she was taking Zantac for heartburn on a daily basis as she was extremely uncomfortable.

The mum-of-two says she realised it was time to do something and lose the weight. She then discovered The Healthy Mummy via the Facebook support groups.

Nicola is a HUGE fan of meal prep

Nicola says that it wasn’t just her weight that has changed in the last three months, but her whole perspective on food.

She reveals she now follows a combination of low carb and high protein meal plan – but she also has to make sure it’s something the family all like!

“We all love carbs so we have small amounts with a healthy serve of proteins,” she says.

Nicola is usually a HUGE fan of meal prep but she says she’s gone a bit backwards lately as life has been chaotic!

“I still aim to prep on Sundays for the weekly snacks for myself and family and double batch one or two dinners for my freezer stash.”

Here’s what Nicola typically eats each day:

Breakfast: Healthy Mummy smoothie.

Snack: Healthy Mummy snack, carrots and peanut butter or a homemade muffin.

Lunch: Healthy Mummy smoothie.

Snack: Healthy Mummy snack, carrots and peanut butter or a homemade muffin.

Dinner: A Healthy Mummy dinner and dessert.

Nicola says START TODAY!

The mum-of-two says before she started her weight loss journey she was full of doubt.

“My first weight loss goal was to lose 10kg because I was so scared of failure. I didn’t even know if 10kg was possible,” she adds.

“I am now at a 45kg loss and aiming for a total loss of 50kg. It won’t happen overnight but I am motivated to continue my journey and am willing to work hard to achieve my goal.”
