Trim & Healthy Mama

I have been trying to lose weight and improve my health using the Trim and Healthy Mama diet plan.  The plan is detailed in a huge tome of a book written by Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison.  It's a great read.  Not only does it outline the health benefits of the THM way of eating, but it also charts Pearl and Serene's diet journey as well as including a whole host of delicious recipes.  The main premise of the diet is not to mix fats and carbohydrates and, when you do eat carbs, to keep them to a limited amount.

I must say that I have thus far found the diet very easy to follow.  There are so many delicious meals and treats you are allowed that it doesn't really feel like a diet at all.  You can eat chocolate brownies and meringue cookies!!!!  It's fabulous.

I am not a stickler for getting weighed but I think that I have lost slightly in excess of two stone and have dropped from a size 22 to an 18.

 This is me before I started THM.  Look at that spare tyre.  Lol.
I know that I still have  a belly but I think you'll agree that you can see I've shrunk somewhat.

I will definitely be keeping on with the THM style of eating so I hope to keep losing and eventually get my shape back.  The main THM website is here: .  You can also buy the book from Amazon .
Keep an eye open for more THM posts in the future.

God's blessing
