Reducing your added sugar intake is one of the FASTEST ways to blast tummy fat, reduce your calorie intake, boost energy levels, improve your skin and drop excess weight.

2. Up your protein

Ensure that you are eating enough protein in your meals and snacks. This helps you to feel fuller for longer and gets your metabolism firing. Think nuts, boiled eggs, poached chicken, natural peanut butter, and tofu.

9. Drink a Healthy Mummy Smoothie

Our meal-replacement Smoothies have been formulated by leading nutritionists. The smoothie is the perfect solution for a busy mum’s life when trying to lose weight.

10. Meal prep

Meal prepping is a major key to success. It cuts out the temptation to reach for unhealthy snacks and meals when it is already prepped ready for you to grab.

Meal prep can be made up of simple tasks like chopping ingredients and storing them in airtight containers, making a batch of healthy snacks from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge or cooking a double batch of your favourite healthy meal, so you can freeze some for another day.
