Introducing The Healthy Mummy App and what it can do for you
Calculate your: BMR
What is it? The number of calories required to keep your body functioning at rest. Taking into account your height, age, current weight, goal weight and activity level provides an accurate reading of how many calories you need daily to lose weight. If you want to maintain then make your current and goal weight the same.
Why is BMR important? To lose weight you need to be in a calorie deficit so it’s important to find out a rough calorie intake to follow. Recalculate for every birthday, every 5kgs you lose or if your activity level changes.
Do the fitness test!
The Fitness Test is designed to help you TRACK YOUR PROGRESS throughout the month. It allows you to record changes in your upper body, lower body, and core strength over the 28 days of the challenge. You can find the Fitness Test in the Exercise Section of the App.
Don’t forget to take regular photo’s to track your progress. Not only can progress photos show weight loss in ways that the scales and measurements sometimes can’t, but they’re also a great motivator to keep going as you can physically see how you’re achieving your goals.
Take the best before and after photos to track your weight loss success
How the meal plans work
Each 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has a different theme, for example, 5 Ingredients and Under or Belly Blaster.
Weekly Meal plans for each challenge are downloaded into the App every Wednesday. All Meal Plans can be customised to suit you and your family’s preferences.
Here Sascha explains how to get the most out of the recipes and shopping lists in the App.
Tracking your activity in the app
The App makes tracking all your activity super easy. Ticking off what you’ve eaten, how much water you’ve drunk, as well as what exercise you’ve done that day means you can monitor everything and stay accountable.
It doesn’t take long for this to become a daily habit that’s easy to follow. Here Sascha shares her tips on how to track your meals, including custom food, using the bar code scanner in the app.
Fitness in The Healthy Mummy App
The exercise programs in the App have been designed by our personal trainers JUST FOR MUMS to do AT HOME – even when the kids around – so the exercise sessions are never longer than 30 minutes!
There are a variety of levels, and you can start simple and slow and over time build up your strength and stamina. Sascha talks you through how to pick your program and customise your exercise plan.
