Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! You don’t need to stop your healthy eating meal plans or wait until the next Challenge starts to commence working towards your healthy weight loss goals.

Here are our tips for what to do in between Challenges!

Top Tips Between Challenges

1. Challenge Hub Login

Log in to the Challenge Hub and access the last meal plan available from the previous Challenge (e.g. if waiting for April to start, go to the March Challenge meal plans), and follow this Meal Plan!

2. Customise Meal Plans

If you’ve done our Challenges before then you’ll know you can customise the suggested Meal Plan to suit your needs, budget and tastes. So as you would during a Challenge, just create a customised Meal Plan to cover you for the time in between a Challenge starting.

If you have just joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges then you can also customise a Meal Plan and get a feel for how our healthy eating meal plans work.

3. Watch This!

Here’s some more info/instructions on how to customise Meal Plans using the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. 

4. Search For NEW Recipes

Search for recipes that you think you may like to try or be adventurous and try some flavours you may not have eaten before. You can also check out our recipe hub for inspo!

6. Ask The Family

Ask your family what types of meals they’d like to eat for the week and you’ll probably be able to find healthy versions of their requests in the Challenge Recipe Hub – burgers, pasta, Mexican, Asian, hot dogs, desserts etc.

7. Add A Few Snacks

Add a few snacks that you can make in bulk before the week starts so you have healthy food that’s easy to grab and don’t have the excuse to choose unhealthy options. Again, just check out  our recipe hub for ideas.

These Easy Zucchini Muffins are PERFECT when you are on the go!

8. Shopping List

You can print out your customised Meal Plan just like during a Challenge, as well as the recipes and shopping list.

9. Keep Moving Ladies!

Use the time in between Challenges to try out or continue with the exercise plans too. You can follow the routines from previous Challenge Rounds and get an idea of the types of exercises included or to continue with your healthy lifestyle.

10. Get Studying

The time in between Challenge rounds is great to really get to know what information and tools are provided in the Challenge Hub.

11. Practice Makes Perfect

Use this time to have a practice run with the Challenge, really get to know what support and tools are available to you or to continue to reach your goals.
