You know why I appreciate Trim Healthy Mama even after many years?
Because it isn’t just trim. And it isn’t just healthy. And it isn’t just for me but the whole family. It is Trim *AND* Healthy.
I’m 174cm tall and am not quite at goal weight (so say the experts) but I am very happy where I am at. Because I have been 65kg and I was skinny but not healthy. (That’s why I use the term ‘skinny’ and not trim in this sense). I was dieting all the time – existing on low fat everything, 1000 calories per day and exercising my butt off.
I have been 125kg and felt healthy yet overweight. Too many refined white products – still low fat and even exercising heaps but still no balance.
THM encourages healthy fats, low GI carbs to help me be at *my* trim. The emphasis on real, whole foods help me to improve my health. It is family-friendly which is super important for it to be sustainable. I easily adapt everything to feed my family – everyone one of their unique needs – be it health, weight loss or weight gain. And it complements my own food philosophy – eating real food which is local and seasonal.
THM can be used with every budget, age, condition or allergy. And mostly, I don’t have to deprive myself of treats! Want chocolate? Cookies? Cakes? Drinks? mains? Desserts? THM has you covered! It is an eating plan for life that is affordable, sustainable and achievable in the long term.
It is adaptable for each stage and season of life. Pregnant – no worries! Nursing, menopausal, exercise junkie? THM is adaptable to any age and stage. This is because it provides an educational framework. Sure one could approach it like a typical ‘diet’ filled with all the rules but we all know that diets don’t work in the long term. THM teaches you about the foods and food groups and encourages you to try different things and do what works for you.
