Mum loses 17kg after experimenting in the kitchen – Here’s how

You don’t need to sign up to an expensive health food delivery service to lose weight! You can SAVE money by heading into the kitchen and making it yourself- even if you’re not into cooking!

Jazmine McClintock didn’t consider herself much of a cook before joining the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, but now she’s lost 17kg and learned you don’t need to be a chef to make delicious and healthy meals for you and your family.

Mum loses 17kg after experimenting in the kitchen – Here’s how

“Prior to The Healthy Mummy, I would often cook basic meals, but I was making the same boring things all of the time,” she admits.

“I often made frozen meals or used tinned vegetables, mostly because I wasn’t sure how I could use fresh stuff up quickly without it going off and being a waste.”

Jazmine reveals she has since learned to make a HEAP of recipes from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipe hub – and she’s even making things she never thought she could!

“The recipes on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge are so EASY to make and follow. I’d never cooked with leeks, ginger, turmeric or beetroot before,” she says.

“I’ve learned I can cook with things I didn’t think I could. I didn’t enjoy cooking before, and I thought it would take a long time, but it doesn’t at all.”

And if that wasn’t good enough, Jazmine has lost 17kg since the beginning of the year by changing what she eats!

“I now snack, and with over 3,500 recipes on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, I’m never stuck on what to make,” she says.

“I can still have delicious food and snacks and lose weight.”

What’re more, Jazmine says she’s also changed her exercise regime – which was almost non-existent before she joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!

“I exercise about six times a week. I’ve joined a gym,” she says.

“I am so thankful I found The Healthy Mummy. I never thought I would ever fit back into my pre-baby clothes. The Healthy Mummy has literally changed my life.

“I’ve gone from 82kg down to 65kg, and I’m 1.7kg away from my goal weight.”

What an amazing achievement, Jazmine!
