As a busy mum of two, I know how easy it can be to go overboard with your daily calorie requirements! You think you’re being healthy and making great meals but the weight isn’t shifting.
At The Healthy Mummy we 100% focus on education around health and weight loss and I really wanted to show how by following our healthy recipes and meal plans can significantly reduce your calorie intake – WITHOUT compromising on taste.
And as well as tasting great this approach WORKS for healthy weight loss. Mums have lost over 3 million kilos on our plans and it is because our plan is balanced, sensible, sustainable and affordable. (Check out Sarah Maynard’s results after losing 56kg with us – and scroll below the recipes to see even more MEGA inspo!)
So today, I’m going to show you how just a few SMALL changes can overhaul your meals and further your weight loss!
When it comes to making meals and you’re trying your best to make everyone in the family happy, sometimes you may not realise the portions are too large or you use ingredients that could be swapped with healthier options.
Small changes like this that mums can do can really change the nutritional details and calories in the meals you’re eating, and can give you more of an opportunity to enable you to reach your weight loss goals.
This is where our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge comes in hand. Healthy, nutritionally planned and portioned meals from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge ensure you’re on track with your energy requirements, vitamins and minerals to reach your goals.
Below I have laid out 7 comparisons of Healthy Mummy 28 Day Challenge meals versus the same meal made with different ingredients and quantities – so you can see how SMALL changes can make a HUGE difference!
These recipes may look very similar but look closely and then see the difference in calories, you’ll be blown away at how easy it actually is to increase your calories without even realising.

“Look at that smile ladies, I lost 20kg* with The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and gained a bucket load of body confidence. I still shock myself that I have managed to do this all while working, running a business and managing a 21-month-old breastfed monkey…
“Previously I struggled with time management, prepping, healthy recipes without babies. I made lots of excuses. I drunk lots of energy drinks and I got up just before the alarm for work.. not anymore x
With The Healthy Mummy they have really simplified it for me, made it easy for busy people like me.
I’m forever in awe of the APP on my device that literally changed my mind and thinking”.
Kerrie has lost 17kg* and dropped 3 dress sizes (from 14-16 to 8) by following The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and exercises on the App as well as including The Healthy Mummy Smoothies and supplements in her diet.
“I am now lighter, smaller, healthier and fitter than I was in my 20’s and 30’s,” says 48-year-old old mum of two, Kerrie O’Brien.
Feeling fabulous at 48, Kerrie says she is looking forward to confidently wearing a swimsuit this summer for the first time in 10 years. Something she admits she never thought she would say!
“I always used to sit on the sidelines in summer, even though I live in Queensland because I didn’t feel confident enough to wear bathers in public. Now I definitely do!”
