How to Lose Weight After Easter

healthy mum

Realigning with health and weight loss goals after Easter, particularly for breastfeeding and busy mums, requires a mindful approach centered on self-care and balanced nutrition. Although it's normal to feel discouraged after Easter treats, it's vital not to let them deter your progress. Quick recovery is key to getting back on track. Here are some steps to help you bounce back after indulging:

1. Prioritise Regular Meals:

Skipping meals after overindulging is counterproductive. Aim for three nutritious meals a day, along with morning and afternoon snacks, to stabilise blood sugar levels and reduce cravings. This apprach prevents you getting too hungry and overeating later in the day. It is harder to make healthy choices when we are too hungry, so eat regularly.

2. Kickstart with Breakfast

The best advice we can give is to start your day on the right foot with a healthy breakfast. That way, you're priming your habit circuits to live a healthy day. And if all else fails throughout the day, you know you’ve still given yourself some goodness in the morning.

If you're short on time and energy, the In Shape Mummy Health Shake is the perfect solution because it is loaded with protein and fibre to keep you feeling full plus 25 vitamins and minerals, probiotics and organic superfoods to nourish your body and give you a nutritional boost. It is quick and easy to make, you can drink it with one hand and you can take it on the go. 

3. Stay Hydrated

Drinking enough water is crucial for overall well-being and controlling appetite to help you lose weight. Aim to drink water before meals to curb hunger. Proper hydration is especially important for breastfeeding mums.

Aim for around 8-10 glasses of water per day.

4. Incorporate Exercise

Regular physical activity is beneficial for weight loss and mental well-being. Finding time for exercise as a busy mum can be challenging. Walking is a fantastic easy exercise for mums, espeically as baby's often enjoy a ride in the pram or carrier too. Look for opportunities to incorporate more steps into your day. Every little bit adds up.

5. Embrace Vegetables

Include plenty of vegetables in your meals to provide essential nutrients and fiber, aiding digestion and promoting fullness.

6. Practice Mindful Eating

Pay attention to your eating habits, focusing on taste, texture, and how food makes you feel. Avoid eating on the go and instead sit down at a table. This helps reduce binge tendencies and increases self-awareness.

7. Be Kind to Yourself

Avoid self-criticism and practice self-compassion. Remember that occasional overindulgence is normal, and punishing yourself only prolongs recovery. Treat yourself with kindness and understanding.

"I'm loving it so far.. I'm already down from in weight and I feel great :)  Not exaggerating when I say this is the best purchase I ever made .. can't wait to get to my first mini goal of 65kgs then set my new goal of 60kgs :) .. so far it's been life changing, thank you so much!! It has literally boosted my milk supply. I used to pump 160mls and now I average 240mls .. I've never been able to get that."

"I've lost 35 kgs thanks to the In Shape Mummy Health Shakes. 110 kgs to 75 kgs! Juggling two little boys under 2 years old doesn't leave much time for healthy choices for Mummy and the In Shape Mummy Health Shake is such an easy solution to get all the goodness I need to keep going! My older son is 20 months and I didn't get the chance to lose the weight gained whilst carrying him before I was pregnant again with baby #2. I easily gained 40kgs across the two pregnancies and no thanks to terrible pelvic pain in pregnancy #2 wasn't able to keep active. Now that my second son is here and the pelvic pain has gone I have stuck to replacing breakfast with my shake and walking every morning for the duration of the morning sleep. Some days I will do a second shorter walk during his nap. I'm still able to enjoy yummy healthy foods and definitely do not feel like I'm going without. I no longer crave sugary foods as the shake sets me up for the day with its magical satisfying ingredients! The shake has become even more of a must since returning to work! If I thought I was busy before, life just got a whole lot busier! Now that I've lost the weight, I have more energy, zero aches and pains and have a better mood. I tell all my friends about In Shape Mummy because easy weight loss doesn't need to be a secret! Xx"

"I discovered In Shape Mummy Health Shakes not long after my second baby was born. He has an intolerance to dairy so I was looking to find something that was safe for breastfeeding, and also vegan friendly. I have recently started a detox program with the help of a naturopath. She was so impressed with the ingredients that she has encouraged me to continue having it! In Shape Mummy has not only helped me lose the 26 kgs I put on in pregnancy, but it’s helped me nourish my body when I’ve been time poor and sleep deprived. It’s the only shake that I actually enjoy the taste of! My breakfast everyday includes ice, almond milk, water, a banana and my In Shape Mummy (my current fave is the caramel fudge!). At 11 months postpartum I feel great! And my breastfeeding journey is still going strong - my milk is in perfect supply for what Bub needs. I cannot recommend In Shape Mummy Health Shakes more highly!”

"I have lost over 30kg with In Shape Mummy Health Shakes, exercise and a complete diet change. ⁠⁠ I started at size 22 and am a loose size 12 at the moment… and nearly a 10! ⁠I feel so much better! With my injuries in my spine, pelvis and knee my weight loss has been the best thing for my pain. ⁠
7-8 months ago I couldn’t have even imagined I could drop this much weight! The change in my life has been insane! ⁠ My advice to other mums is “stick with it and don’t give up!” ⁠ Thanks so very much for your In Shape Mummy Health Shakes. They are the best thing for mums on the go and while breastfeeding as well. Words can not express how grateful I am with my weight loss. I couldn’t of started this without your shakes. My life is forever changed." ⁠
