35 year old mum-of-two Lauren da Silva has lost 2.5st since joining the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
“Over 6 months I lost 2.5st following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meal plan,” Lauren says. “I put all my focus into getting my food right when I first joined. After all, food was my biggest problem.”
However, Lauren’s journey has now become much more than weight loss. She is now on a mission to change as many women’s lives as possible.
I’ve lost 2.5st and now want to change as many women’s lives as possible
Lauren joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge in July 2015. Within 6 months, she had lost 2.5st. “Nutrition really is so important to having successful weight loss,” says Lauren. And for sometime, this is where she struggled the most.
“Food was my biggest problem,” adds Lauren.
Sticking to the meal plans as much as possible helped Lauren crack her goal weight.
“I don’t spend hours at a time meal prepping either, I prefer shorter cook ups more often.”
Think curries, dhal and stir fries.
Effective workouts you can do from home
“How amazing are all the new workouts on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge?” Lauren asks.
The mum-of-two says she never gets bored with exercise thanks to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App. “I have access to so many different styles of workouts on the App,” she adds.
When Lauren first joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, all she wanted to do was drop a few pounds.
As she became more and more active within the Healthy Mummy Community and within the Private Facebook Support Groups – Lauren realised The Healthy Mummy offered more than just a weight loss program. It offered a platform for mums to connect with each other safely, talk all things health and weight loss and an opportunity to empower one another.
“As I became more active in the group, I realsised that this is so much more than just a weight loss program. I’m now here because I love helping other women realise their worth, I love helping women regain their confidence, I love that I can help add life to so many women’s lives,” Lauren says.
“My goal now is to help change as many women’s lives as possible.”
Tummy fat blasting tips
Lauren’s weight loss success has inspired hundreds of mums within The Healthy Mummy Community. Her tummy transformation in particular has led many mums to ask, “what’s your secret?“.
Truth be told there is none! Just consistency, determination, exercise and sticking to your meal plan.
When it comes to Lauren’s best tips for blasting belly fat – they include:
- Cut the processed foods. Cooking from scratch is so much better for you.
- Drink up. Water that is.
- Increase your greens. I add broccoli and spinach all my meals, including spinach in my smoothies.
- Get sweaty! Walking, running, App exercises, gym, just move your body!
- Know your body. For me, eating too many processed carbs like bread and pasta cause me so much bloat. Try replacing pasta with vegetable noodles (like courgettes or sweet potato) and use wholemeal wraps instead of bread.

“On the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, you literally have your meal and exercise plan at your fingertips at all times. The meals are simple and nutritious without complication,” Lauren shares.
