Get tips to lose weight in a week from a mom who did it!
Kaitie Purcell was a member of the Healthy Mummy and lost a whopping 21 kilos.
She admits that sometimes the weight loss stalls, or even she has put on some weight after Christmas or Easter holidays.
But, says Kaitie through the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and by using these tips, she was able to get back on track and lose weight within a week.
Kaitie’s top tips for losing weight in a week
Calculate your BMR. KNOW how many calories you are aiming for (don’t guess based on someone else’s needs), for your personal goals and requirements. Work yours out here
Use The Healthy Mummy app to set yourself up for the week. The app creates a personalized shopping list with everything you need and gives you all the meal prep tips and recipes to follow
Drink plenty of water throughout the day to ensure you are hydrated. Thirst can often be mistaken for hunger pangs.
5. Check your labels!
Don’t be fooled by clever packaging, often prepackaged ‘high protein’ foods contain extra calories, sugars and sweeteners.
Plan in time to exercise. Make an appointment with yourself. This will help you commit to a specific time. 3 days a week is great when starting out. Don’t have time to exercise?
Move when you can. Do a few squats at the kitchen sink, do extra laps of the hallway, park further away from your work or shopping and walk further, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Just more more when you can.
The Healthy Mummy app has over 600 home exercises – including mom and kid workouts you can do together!
7. Eat regularly
Your Healthy Mom Meal Plan is filled with great food including breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. If you eat scheduled meals, you are less likely to get hungry and eat later in the day.
8. High protein
Eating high protein meals and snacks will help you feel fuller for longer and the app has a specific high protein meal plan you can follow
9. Pack a lunch box
If you have a busy day ahead of you or know you will be out for a long time, pack a lunch box. Take your prepared meals and snacks. If you’re caught, try to avoid takeaways and processed “healthy foods.” If possible, opt for salads with dressing on the side or try to buy fresh fruit or natural nuts.
10. Have a Smoothie
The Healthy Mom Smoothies is a MUST HAVE. Easy to make, packed with nutrition and taste and with nothing artificial in it. They are a great addition to the day and make you feel full so you consume fewer calories
11. Finally, be kind to yourself
If you slip and overeat, if you’ve eaten away and eaten takeaway or that tempting chocolate bar don’t be too hard on yourself. Accept it and move on. Drink a glass of water and start fresh right away. Don’t wait for tomorrow or Monday. You can do it now!
