I'm Lisa, founder of the In Shape Mummy company. And I’m mum to an action-packed toddler and a superhero loving little boy. I am passionate about helping mums to live healthy and happy lives. Nice to meet you! :)
After my own struggles with weight and severe sleep deprivation (courtesy of my babies) I found a way to transform not only the way I look but the way I feel. After I found the way, I knew I had to share it. Together with my team of leading postnatal health experts, I started the In Shape Mummy company to help other mums do the same.
I breastfed both of my little ones until they were 2 so I spent a total of 4 years breastfeeding. I am passionate about breastfeeding and believe it is one of the best gifts you can give your precious baby. That's why I started this company, to support breastfeeding and busy mums.
I attribute not only my weight loss, but my breastfeeding success (and my sanity!) to our In Shape Mummy Health Shake and Support Program.
I have a confession to make…
I am super passionate about health now, but I haven’t always been so healthy. In fact, in my life before babies I was quite the opposite.
I was a serial yo-yo dieter and a chocoholic. I used binge on chocolate and junk, and then I would go on all kinds of crazy eating and exercise regimes to shed the weight I’d put on… and this “yo-yo” cycle would continue. I did everything from starving myself, to eating a “yogurt only” diet to exercising like crazy.
I used to be so bloated all the time (so much so that it looked like I was pregnant!) and I had the worst stomach pains. I felt so tired and terrible. I found out it was dairy and lactose that was the culprit. Apparently, lactose intolerance is common in mums and often goes undiagnosed.
But then… everything changed when…
I gave birth to my first beautiful baby. I wanted desperately to lose the weight I’d put on in pregnancy. But I also was worried about impacting my milk supply as I wanted to give my baby the best. I was worried my milk supply would dry up if I went back to a crazy diet.
I was constantly exhausted from the sleepless nights. I now know if someone claims they’re ‘tired’ and they haven’t had a baby… they don’t know what “tired” is!
Plus, my postnatal physiotherapist told me that strenuous exercise after child birth can cause a prolapse and that really scared me!
I was so distressed and couldn’t see a way out. Never in my life had I felt so out of control. I felt like a physical and mental wreck. I felt like a walking zombie from the sleep deprivation.
Does any of this sound familiar to you? Maybe you’re still struggling with these problems?
I was a physical and mental wreck! How did I overcome it?
I was not prepared to wave the white flag and surrender to the "babies change your body forever" mentality.
So I set out on a mission to read everything that I could get my hands on I could about weight loss and breastfeeding.
I looked into books, magazines, google, and weight loss plans. You name it, I took it in. But nothing I read, listened to or watched seemed understand the challenges that real breastfeeding mums face.
Firstly, as breastfeeding mums we can’t starve ourselves on one of those supermodel starvation diets you see in the magazines. If we did, our milk supply would dry up. And we’d have even less energy to cope with raising our little ones.
When you’re breastfeeding, your baby is depending on you for 100% of their nutrition. Diets that cut out major food groups are a definite “no-no”. We need extra nutrients to support our milk supply and precious baby’s development.
In an ideal world, we’d all spend hours cooking organic gourmet healthy meals and go to the gym every day. But, when you have a new baby, who has the time or energy for that?!
And after busy days and sleepless nights we don’t have the energy for extensive cooking, exhaustive boot camp style workouts or have time to go to the gym.
I thought the existing supplements might be a convenient answer but when I looked at weight loss shakes and products in the supermarket, I found that they were packed full of sugar, artificial nasties, gluten, soy hormones, dairy/whey and the list of allergens and nasties goes on. I was so worried that these nasties would get passed on to my precious baby through my breast milk.
So, I went out and searched all over Australia to find the leading experts in women’s health and postnatal weight loss to create a healthy solution for breastfeeding mums just like me.
These experts were also real mums, so they understood the real challenges that we mums face.
I was so passionate about finding a solution to this big problem that I put my house on the line to fund it.
Together with my team of leading dietitians and nutritionists, we set out to formulate the healthiest superfood shake on the planet, the In Shape Mummy Health Shake.
Our In Shape Mummy Health Shake is developed specifically for breastfeeding mums to help make it easy to shed baby weight, while giving them the nutrition they need to support their milk supply. And our shakes give the big boost in energy mums need to get through their busy day.
We care about mums and their precious babies' health so we use the best premium organic ingredients. And we keep the artificial nasties out. No dairy, no lactose, no soy, no gluten, no processed sugar, no fillers and no artificial nasties.
Our In Shape Mummy Health Shake for Breastfeeding Mums was so popular, that we brought out another range of shakes to support mums who are not breastfeeding.
Our team of experts also created a holistic weight loss and breastfeeding support program to make it even easier for mums to lose weight. We care so much about supporting mums that we give this away for Free with every shake.
Our support program includes delicious and tasty recipes, meal plans, motivating stepping challenges and much needed encouragement, inspiration and support to help mums manage this challenging time of life.
Rather than a quick fix diet, our program equips mums with the knowledge to stay in shape for the rest of their lives.
After having my second baby I returned easily to my pre-baby weight through using our Shakes, healthy eating program and my daily walk. This was so awesome and I was so relieved after the trouble I had after my first pregnancy!
To this day I still have an In Shape Mummy Health Shake every day to keep in shape, save time and give me the energy to run my business and chase after my two little ones!
I am very proud to say I have been in shape for over 5 years now. After my 2 kids, I am in the best shape of my life.
I will never be overweight or yo-yo diet again. Because I have learnt the secrets to keeping the weight off and being healthy for the rest of my life. And I love helping other mums do the same!
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to help thousands of mums achieve their goals and live a healthier and happier life! And I am excited to help you too!

98% Less Sugar
Many other weight loss shakes contain over 40 grams of processed sugar, which actually slows weight loss. That’s equivalent of 10 teaspoons! Imagine having that in your coffee, let alone in your meal!
In contrast, we use less than 1 gram of sugar. And that sugar we use is naturally derived from monk fruit.
Special Probiotic Benefits
Probiotics promote your inner gut health, increase the absorption of nutrients, can aid digestion and strengthen your immune system which may be weakened after giving birth.
Probiotics have even been reported to prevent and reduce mastitis (blocked milk ducts). Probiotics can also help strengthen your baby's immune system faster and have been linked to help with colic, constipation, eczema and reflux.

Mums are RAVING about us...
I am so grateful for all the people behind the In Shape Mummy Health Shake. It has helped me lose my post-pregnancy weight in a healthy way and very helpful during days where I had to wake up early for school drop offs and going to work. I've lost 15 kgs and I couldn't be any happier. I've regained my energy and have lots of time to play with my 2 kids. It's breastfeeding-friendly which is even better for me because the nutrients this Healthy Shake has is good for my little one. I feel great and motivated to work out even more when I saw my results. I'm so in love with this Healthy Shake!!! Thanks to Lisa and the rest of their team. ♥️

I'm loving the In Shape Mummy Health Shake so far.. I'm already down from in weight and I feel great :) Best purchase I ever made .. can't wait to get to my first mini goal of 65 then set my new goal of 60 :) .. so far it's been life changing, thank you so much !! It has literally boosted my milk supply. I used to pump 160 mls and now I average 240 mls .. I've never been able to get that.
The In Shape Mummy Shakes helped me lose all my pregnancy weight. They also gave me the energy to look after my 3 amazing children and to work out. I found the In Shape Mummy Health Shake really easy to use as my breakfast and it kept me full and satisfied. I was traveling a hour to school drop off every weekday morning and this was a quick and very easy way to get in a healthy energising breakfast. Before I started In Shape Mummy I was skipping breakfast all together and feeling very flat. Best of all my baby gets to enjoy all the benefits through my breast milk as well.
