There are daily emails to get you off to the day well, Facebook posts every few hours with recipes, inspiration, exercise ideas and a friendly and supportive community with over 65,000 other mums trying to lose their baby weight too. And this is because of the significant change to a woman’s life, time, priorities and energy levels post baby (plus the extra weight we gain around the tummy which can be tough to shift). So this is where weight loss post baby can be hard as although it would be nice to get back into shape quickly, for most mums it just isn’t feasible. And this is why we created the Lose Baby Weight program and support system as we understand first hand how hard it can be for a lot of mums to lose weight and we wanted to create healthy eating and exercise plans that fit into a mums life and are achievable.
If you are ready to lose weight then the Lose Baby Weight plans offer a healthy and safe exercise and diet routine. If your baby suffers from colic, has allergies, has any digestive issues or any illness we advise discussing any diet plan with your Doctor as certain foods may exacerbate the problem.
And when introducing any new food into your diet, we advise being alert to any food sensitivity in your baby such as a change in bowel movements and discontinuing any new diet plan if any food sensitivity occurs.
Please only begin any exercise routine post birth after receiving the all clear from your Doctor or Physio and never put any pressure on yourself to do exercise before you are 100% recovered post birth – which could up to 12 months or more if you have had a difficult birth. PLUS check out our video below of us on TV with Linda Hallas who has now lost 40kg on our plans!

And the struggle is there whether you are a stay at home mum or a mum back at work as you have a whole new set of priorities to focus on as well as trying to cope with a lack of sleep often coupled with the physical exhaustion of your life as a mum. I know that speaking from my own experience, some days I am so physically tired that it is hard to stay awake and function never mind worry about losing weight and finding time to do exercise! These fad diets are unhealthy, cut out vital food groups that you need for energy and see you lose fluid and muscle which is why the weight comes back on very soon after losing it.
And even though you may want to lose a big chunk of weight in a few weeks, this is not sustainable and it will be hard to be on a restrictive diet when you have so much going on in your life and need energy. Fat is fat and no matter how you gained it, it isn’t a different type of fat if you gained it in pregnancy. Instead, only think about losing weight when you feel physically and emotionally ready and strong and then aim for a healthy 500g – 1kg a week.
