Salmon is a terrific source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have anti-inflammatory properties which are beneficial to various aspects of our health, including our heart, gut and stress levels. Stress is a contributor to weight retention, so by assisting in its reduction we assist in our overall weight loss.

    “1st photo 74kg, 2nd photo 58kg. All started with the help of Lose Baby Weight, I love my Healthy Mummy Smoothies for breakfast and the 28 Day Weight Loss challenges have taught me so much about how to eat well and nourish my body with the right foods. The support and encouragement from this group has kept me going when I have felt like giving up many times. Late last year I stepped out of my comfort zone and became a fitness instructor with the help and encouragement of my awesome PT. I still can’t believe this is me, haven’t worn a bikini in 10 years.”
