Mum-of-three, reveals how she lost 33 kilos using The Healthy Mummy

A young mum-of-three has confessed that eating banana cake, nachos and beef stroganoff every day has still allowed her to lose 33 kilos and have three successful pregnancies.

Shan Butcher, 25, joined The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Challenge almost five years ago after coming across an advertisement on social media.

While the program focused primarily on balanced eating and regular workouts Shan was surprised by just how simple it was to make the switch without losing some of her favourite snacks and coffee order every day.

‘It’s okay to stop along the way just don’t give up! I have stopped… it has taken me 4.5 years to get here and three babies in that time,’ the mum from Tamworth, NSW, said.

‘It’s okay to stop along the way just don’t give up! I have stopped… it has taken me 4.5 years to get here and three babies in that time,’ the mum from Tamworth, NSW, said

‘I’m so much fitter and have so much more energy! I have never ever been so confident in my body. My mental health hasn’t ever been this good either.’

She tries to incorporate smoothies, protein powder and apple cider vinegar tablets into her diet to maintain the weight loss and her favourite recipes to make for her family are nachos and easy loaded chicken bake.

Shan recommends watching your calories, setting reasonable goals to work towards and staying positive throughout the process to ensure you stay on track.
