The reason so many of us gain weight over winter is because the cold weather leaves us craving comfort food which is usually high in calories, fat and sugar and is a bit is a disaster for our waist lines.
But we like to show you ways to still enjoy ways to have comfort foods without ruining your weight loss plans.

    Weight Loss Results

    Samara says:  “I have lost 12kgs on the Healthy Mummy plans and smoothies! The Healthy Mummy has helped me to take control of what I can. I am getting happier and more confident with each passing day! I’m not at my goal weight yet – my body has hit the pause button – but I will not give up.  My advice – start TODAY! Don’t wait for next week or Monday, start your journey today. You will thank yourself in a week, a month, a year!
    If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always got! Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end”

    You won’t regret it!
