“Eating more has helped me lose weight, and it’s all thanks to The Healthy Mummy!”
Other ways to boost your metabolism
Eating small regular meals across the day will aid digestion, placing less strain on the body than eating larger meals.
Changing your style of eating. Whole foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, good fats and organic and plant-based proteins will naturally bring you into balance.
Eat probiotic foods to nurture beneficial gut bacteria, helping reduce inflammation and bloating.
Keep your blood sugar stable by consuming low-to-medium-GI foods, and not leaving long breaks between meals.
Remember, weight gain is generally a result of the choices you have made, and so too is weight loss. To have a long-lasting healthy weight loss, these new decisions need to be made permanently and with an open heart.
Jacoby has been able to do more than boost her metabolism on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. The inspiring mum says The Healthy Mummy helped her overcome both postnatal depression and post traumatic stress disorder (due to a difficult birth).
“In 2014, I experienced a really hard labour with my daughter, it sent me down a downward spiral,” she says.
“I literally couldn’t breathe somedays. Six months later my fiancé left me. I had postnatal depression [PND] and post traumatic stress disorder [PSTD] and didn’t want him to touch me or look at me.
“I was angry, sad and downtrodden. When I found The Healthy Mummyand all the beautiful ladies getting some many results and all their confidence, I realised I could be one of them. I no longer suffer PND or PTSD.
“I got through by getting a healthy mindset. I made the best changes to be a better mum and a better partner.
“I still hit lows in my life but I can handle them now. It’s the best tool to be given. Being able to handle circumstances out of your control, positively and to have the confidence to face and overcome all your struggles, weight, mindset and all the other bits and pieces in life.”
