The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is made to suit everyone, this is where the customisation tool can help you out. Think about what you have in your fridge, freezer and pantry. Search the recipe hub for meals using those ingredients to cut costs on your shopping. You can also repeat snacks, meals or add in smoothies too.

3. Get organised

Check what you need to get from your shopping list, this is super easy using the new app.

Try to get to the shops before Sunday or even get your shopping delivered this is a great idea if your likely to sneak in that chocolate bar or packet of chips on sale at the end of the aisle. Online shopping bypasses this temptation..

4. Preparation really is key!

Sunday is our official prep day to set us up for the week ahead, if Sunday doesn’t suit you to prep try and do whatever you can when you can to make your life easier. Having Healthy snacks and meals ready to grab when things don’t go to plan can be a lifesaver!

5. Drink water


Water intake is crucial to weight loss! Fill up some water bottles so you have them ready to take with you whenever you are on the run.

6. Move your body… no matter what

Think about moving your body. When are you going to make time to get your Challenge exercises in? They normally take about 30 minutes. Making a PLAN as to when you can fit this in will make it easier to stick too.

7. Take photos

What Kaitie Thinks About the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge 

Kaitie’s 21kg* Weight Loss

Kaitie credits her incredibly quick slim down to the 28 Day Challenges as well as the Healthy Mummy smoothies which she has now added to her regime to maintain her weight loss.

Kaitie says, The Healthy Mummy has changed my views 110 per cent! I love healthy food, I know what is in almost everything I eat, I save money and, believe it or not, in most cases, time by using the Healthy Mummy Meal Plans and cooking most things from scratch.”

But Kaitie admits that her downfall was her diet. “For me, food has 90 per cent contributed to my weight loss. I love food, I always have but I’m very slowly starting to love me too.
