Trim Healthy Mama Review
Trim Healthy Mama is the latest “diet” book craze. It seems like every where I turned there was something about Trim Healthy Mama. I was curious at first, and skeptical.
I had to find out for myself what all the fuss was about!
What was so new and different about this plan?
I heard about Trim Healthy Mama first from my sister. She and her family were starting to implement the plan… and seeing results.
Then, I joined the free Facebook group to learn as much as I could before buying the book. I was simply AMAZED at the transformations I saw in the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook group. I could not get enough of the life changing stories from these women (and some men too!). Joining the Facebook group is a must for starting out. There are amazing moderators to help with answers to any questions and also getting advice and encouragement. I would highly recommend joining the group to help you with your Trim Healthy Lifestyle.
After about a week of being in the Facebook Group, I knew I had to buy the book and see for myself what this was all about. I can say after reading the book and following the Trim Healthy Mama plan for about 2 months is…
I Love it!
You can even eat chocolate everyday! I’m sold!!
Some history: I had been eating more Paleo based recipes, Grain free, Gluten free… and I love this plan so much better than anything I have been doing for quite a while.
I think what I like about it is how balanced it is.
There are NO food groups that are eliminated like Paleo based diets which eliminate dairy, grains, and beans.
You can enjoy carbs, fats, and protein
The bottom line is keep fat and carbs separate and eat protein at each meal or snack.
You can enjoy both types of meals: Energizing and Satisfying just keep them apart. So you can eat a low fat/moderate carb (or E-nergizing) breakfast with bowl of oatmeal or a pumpkin muffin with nonfat greek yogurt OR you can have a heavy fat/low carb (S-atisfying) 3 egg omelet with cheese and sausage…. Just keep the two different kinds of meals (E and S meals) separated by 3 hours.
I think what I love most is that is works for anyone! It works for someone who wants to eat whole foods and it works for someone who needs more convenience foods in their life. Both women may approach Trim Healthy Mama from different angles initially, but there is a plan for both of them.
Trim Healthy Mama In a day:
Breakfast: bowl of oatmeal with stevia sweetened Greek yogurt (E)
Snack 2.5-3 hour later: Rye wasa crackers with peanut butter (S) or a Muffin in a Mug with Stevia Sweetened Greek yogurt on top (my favorite!)
Lunch 3 hours later: Grilled salmon on a salad with light dressing and lots of low carb vegetables and a light soup (E)
Snack 3 hours later: Apple and a few almonds (E) or a enjoy a great Trim Healthy Mama drink.
Dessert: Chocolate Brownie in a mug with peanut butter Greek yogurt (S) or some Skinny Chocolate!
I seriously LOVE this eating plan!!!
I love the recipes and I love how I feel.
I track what I eat on My Fitness Pal to know how many calories, carbs and sugar I’m eating regularly (not necessary, but I’m a data nerd!). Since I have implemented this Trim Healthy Mama plan, my carbs have been lower and my sugar intake has been lower. I’m so happy about both of those numbers!!
I also have effortlessly lost 5lbs!
I was always ready to cheat on all the other “diets” I had tried… I couldn’t do without dairy… I also love beans and whole food carbs. Now, I really feel satisfied and love that I can eat when I’m hungry and snacking is encouraged.
The authors, Pearl and Serene, have some really great tips in their book to help you stay trim and also getting the best nutrition you can to stay healthy.
Hope you guys check out the book! It really could change your life!
I’ve been posting some of my recipes that are Trim Healthy Mama inspired. Check them out!
I feel like motherhood was the most amazing thing that ever happened to me… but I had to discover how to not lose myself in the process.
I teach busy moms how to make simple healthy swaps that make a huge impact on their health and results.
