Healthy Mummy Shantelle loses 5.5st in 16 months

Healthy Mummy Shantelle has gone through a huge transformation in the past 16 months, going from 17.3st. to 11.8st. in 16months. That’s a total loss of 5.5st. on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

We checked in with Shantelle to find out how she was travelling and her plans for losing the last 1.5st.

Shantelle’s weight loss plan

Shantelle’s next goals are to lose the last 1.5st, tone up her tummy, increase the weight she can squat and be able to do unassisted tricep dips and pull ups.

Since losing weight, Shantelle has discovered just how much she loves working out, especially leg day!

“Legs are my favourite body part to train, I designate a 2.5 hour gym session a week to train legs as it is what I most enjoy,” she says.

Previously following a low carb diet, Shantelle has found with her current energy expenditure, her weight loss has done a flip and she doesn’t lose weight unless she eats enough calories. Shantelle has been reintroducing carbs and eating more carbs on the days she knows she will be using more energy.

Breakfast“I always have a protein smoothie for breakfast,” Shantelle says (Healthy Mummy smoothies launching in September!) Gluten Free Granola is also a fab, make ahead option.

Dinner: Roast vegetables and meat.

Meal prep is everything for Shantelle’s family.

“Hubby is now on board, he is trying to bulk at the moment so we meal prep together and we add a lot more carbs to his meals because our goals are different.”

Shantelle doesn’t cook at all during the week, leaving her meal prep to just once a week with her husband, which allows them both to alternate getting to the gym after work. Staying super organised by scheduling all their gym sessions allows them to both get to the gym 6 times a week!
