Thank you Lose Baby Weight.
I had my second child in October last year. While I wasn’t too fussed about my weight I was shocked to see that I had hit the 105kg mark, and put on more than 20kg before I was even full term!!
Since just before Christmas and starting the Healthy Mummy Smoothies I have lost 7kg and a total of 39cm all up!
Do you ever crave a mint slice biscuit? Well here’s a healthy alternative you can enjoy whilst sticking to your healthy eating plan.
Thanks to Beth Skinner for this yummy smoothie recipe.
Each week there is a chance to win a $100 Myer voucher just by sending in your own Healthy Mummy Smoothie recipe. Send us your recipe and a picture of the smoothie to firstname.lastname@example.org
Recent studies have actually found that adding yoghurt to your diet aids healthy weight loss, due to the high ratio of protein to fat in a typical tub of the white stuff.
The consistency and texture also makes yoghurt a weight loss winner as it’s something that is enjoyable to eat.
This makes it an easy choice as a healthy snack over something less nutritious.
There’s something about weekends and brunch that just works so well together. In our house, brunch is definitely more ‘breakfast’ than ‘lunch’ with an early bird nine month old who needs his morning sleep by 9.45am.
None the less, heading out with the family for a bite to eat is a great way to start the weekend.
As a Nutritionist and mother of 1 (soon to be 2) beautiful girls, I started following the Lose Baby Weight facebook page due to the great articles, humble community feel, post-natal exercise tips and scrumptious healthy eating recipes.
At first I didn’t even realise there was a whole range of University & Nutritionist backed products that were available to use as part of a weight loss program. When I had a look at the ingredients in the Weight Loss Smoothies, I was pleasantly surprised and realised this was no ordinary ‘weight loss shake’ diet.
Firstly I was happy to discover the sugar content is one of the lowest going around, the fibre content is miles above the rest and the addition of lactation boosting herbs is a massive bonus.
Last month the Lose Baby Weight team decided to run a feedback survey with the mums who had trialled our plans and Healthy Mummy products and used our Healthy Mummy smoothies
We wanted to get your true and honest feedback about what you think of our products and how we could improve anything. We were absolutely delighted at the high level of response and how that over 400 mums who had used the products actually took the time out of their day to complete the survey and give their honest and open feedback.
We are so very grateful for this as we understand how time poor mums are so thank you to everyone who took the time to give us their feedback – it means a huge amount to us.
A BIG THANK YOU to Melissa Chapman for sending in the awesome smoothie recipe as part of our weekly smoothie of the week competition- YUM!!

When we decided to create the Healthy Mummy Range one of the biggest driving factors was that was no true healthy eating meal replacement option on the market that had been created exclusively for mums.
Yes, there were HEAPS of other diet shake products than claim to help you lose weight fast and some of the main reasons there can be negativity around these diet shake products is that a) they advocate very low calorie intake b) have a high sugar content c) have weight loss accelerants and chemicals, d) taste bad, e) have bad side effects and f) if you are breastfeeding they are not safe.
So we really wanted to create a product that was natural, free of chemicals, low in sugar, high in fibre, high in protein, free from dairy and gluten, tasty, had extra health ingredients in like flaxseed, pumpkin seed and fenugreek and was safe if you were a mum who was breastfeeding and were looking for a breastfeeding safe diet. Plus we wanted to create a product that could be done in conjunction with a traditional healthy eating diet and plan – such as our 28 Day Diet & Exercise Plan.
We get lots of questions from mums who want to lose their baby weight and want to know how the Lose Baby Weight plans work.
Firstly, our focus is on healthy living and living a healthy life and we have created products and plans that are 100% tailored to mums.
Most weight loss plans are generic and do not take into account the sleep deprivation that comes with being a mum, the lack of time to take care of yourself, the nutritional needs of a mum or the nutrients needed if a mum is breastfeeding.
Our plans were created for mums and by mums. They are for breastfeeding and NON breastfeeding mums and we ensured if mums are breastfeeding that the foods and nutrients on the plans helps support a healthy milk supply.
But if you are a breastfeeding or non breastfeeding mum – these plans will work equally well for you
Each week one mums becomes the winner for the Lose Baby Weight Smoothie of Week competition and each week the Lose Baby Weight team have a VERY tough job in picking a winner for the $100 Myer voucher we give out each week.
We try and upload as many of the entries as possible here so you have lots of inspiration on the Lose Baby Weight and Healthy Mummy Smoothies to make your own tasty recipes.
