Get your Pre-Baby Body Back by Eating Lean, Clean and Green

I completely understand that as a new mum it is too easy to get into that unhealthy routine of coffee shops, cakes and sandwiches at home but since nutrition is responsible for 80% of fat loss it is important that you start eating lean, clean and green soon after the birth of your baby. As I always say flat abs are made in the kitchen!

The True Vitality 4 Mums Nutrition Plan is the perfect post-natal meal guide and plan which is packed with so many amazing recipes and advice to speed up your metabolism and fuel your body. Smoothies, pancakes, salads, wraps, delicious dinners & satisfying desserts… there’s something for everyone!

I recently joined some of the members of my 12 Week Post-Natal Transformation Programme in doing the initial part of the Nutrition Plan which is the two week body blitz. My goals were to to lose the couple of lbs that crept on in November and December and to de-bloat a little after the Christmas period. I  stuck to the plan 70-80% of the time (if you have more weight to lose it is important that you stick to it for these two weeks) and I was very pleased that I lost the few inches all over!! (apart from my arm measurements which stayed the same). Losing these few inches took me back down to my happy weight and this has definitely made sure I feel back to my normal self again! My clothes fit perfectly again 🙂 

Here is a sample of my food diary that I shared with the private members group daily on the plan to give you an idea of the types of food you would be eating! The foods I have shown you are the foods I always eat as part of my lifestyle anyway and are the ones, although I have been much more careful with portion (particularly chocolate!) control. So as you can see from my food diaries you can eat well and that you don’t need to go hungry to get the results you want!
