Many women worry how long it will take to shift the 'mum bod' straight after giving birth. The truth is that you wont snap back to your pre-baby body overnight. It may take sometime to get fully into shape again, and support is needed to help busy mums find a diet and exercise regime that fits in with their hectic daily routine.

From Joe Wicks' The Body Coach to Kayla Itsines' Bikini Body Guide, there are plenty of interactive fitness and lifestyle programmes to help people achieve their goals - and now we finally have one specifically aimed at mummas. TV personality, writer and mum of two, Katie Piper, and Terri-Ann Nunns, mum of 4 and creator of the 123 Diet Plan, have joined forces to create a fantastic, healthy, happy, mum plan.

Described as 'the ultimate manual for mums', The Healthy Happy Mum Plan is brimming with exclusive 'how to' recipe and exercise videos for you to follow, expert dietician advice and diet plan, relaxation techniques, fun tips, food diaries, and list of fun things to do with the kids. 

Before you get started on the plan, make sure you take heed of Katie and Terri-Ann's top tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle regime post-baby. 

Step off the scales

Take photos and measurements every two weeks to track your progress, and don’t weight yourself more than once a week. You’ll be amazed at the results when looking back at old photos! You’ll look forward to meals more as it’s something different.

Become a meal prep-pro

Plan and prepare for at least 3 days in advance, and batch cook some meals so you always have something to grab even when you’re busy.

Exercise early

Exercise first thing in the morning – it’s easier to make excuses as the day goes on and is often the last thing on your mind 

Not a fan of the gym? No problem 

You don’t have to go to the gym to exercise. Not everyone feels comfortable, or has the time to go to the gym. Home workouts are just as good and you can even get the kids involved!

Seek moral support

Talk to other mums. Sharing your thoughts, feelings and experiences can really help to keep you on track. You can also gain advice and reassurance from other like-minded mums in doing so.

A treat a day keeps indulgence at bay

Allow yourself a treat day. There’s no need to cut your favourite food out of your diet completely as it simply makes you crave it more. Select one day a week where you can really indulge!

Set yourself realistic goals

Don’t expect to see changes over night. This isn’t a detox, it’s a lifestyle choice. It’s all about being mindful with what you eat. Keep up the good work and you will see results!

 

The Healthy Happy Mum Plan by Katie Piper and TerriAnn Nunns is available for £39.99 at The Healthy Happy Mum Plan website.
