Want to be a Trim Healthy Mama? {Review and GIVEAWAY!}

This post may contain affiliate links.

Have you heard of Trim Healthy Mama? My friends have been raving about it, and I’m joining that parade. If you have weight to lose, or just want to be a healthier version of you, this is a review you want to read (and, a giveaway you want to enter!)

Trim Healthy Mama Review

A little back story on how I became a Trim Healthy Mama:

I had my first son young. Like, really young (before you get any ideas- married young!). While I was pregnant with him, I craved milkshakes, and had at least one a day. Those milkshakes added up fast, and before I knew it, I gained WAY more than the recommended 25 pounds. But, I was young. The weight melted off in no time, and before I knew it, I was back in my skinny jeans.

After the third baby… well, the weight didn’t melt off. I haven’t changed my eating habits ever. I used to be a very thin girl, and then one morning, I woke up, and I was a mom. A mom, with about 40 extra pounds hanging around, and I had no idea how I got to this point.

I started to feel really bad about myself, but I am lucky to have a lot of wonderful friends. Some of my girlfriends were talking about this new book they had been reading called Trim Healthy Mama, and even more amazing, more than one of them lost significant amounts of weight.

I’m a skeptic by nature, but when I see many of my friends loose considerate amounts of weight, I sit up and pay attention. I joined the Facebook community for Trim Healthy Mama and started researching how it works. I started showing my husband the progress pictures members were posting.  I bought the ebook version of Trim Healthy Mama, and I dove in.

In the first month, I lost 8 pounds. I lost 8 pounds with very little effort. I lost 8 pounds, and I didn’t even diet…. not really, anyways.

And… I did what I do best as a blogger- I wrote the company and asked them if I could pretty please share their book with my readers. Luckily, they said YES and offered to give one of you a copy of their book in exchange for my review (and also sent me a hard copy for myself, which has made using the recipes so much easier!).

How does it work?

In a nutshell, Trim Healthy Mama is about changing When you eat, and what you eat together. Your daily meals are broken down into 2 general meal types, Energizing meals with plenty of carbs, and Satisfying meals with plenty of healthy fats. As a rule, you don’t want to eat a lot of fats and carbs together in the same meal, and wait three hours between meals to switch from one type of meal to the next.

This means I still get to eat butter, and cheese, and all sorts of good fats… I just don’t eat them on bread, or pasta.

I can still eat bread, but I choose whole grain, and I choose a lean veggie soup instead of a cream based one.

You also should avoid “whites”- White sugar, white flour, potatoes, regular pastas.

The other biggie is to choose foods with a low glycemic index. White sugar is on the “avoid” list- which means this plan is great for diabetics and others who are limiting their sugar intake.

I’m not a nutritionist, so I am not even going to go into the “why” of these things. In general, even though it may sound complicated when you first jump in, the rules can be simplified into those three things:

  • Don’t eat fats with carbs (but do eat both good fats, and whole grain carbs separately)
  • Avoid white foods
  • Choose foods with very low/no sugar content

Try Trim Healthy Mama

There’s No Way to Fail if You Try

I’ve gotten creative with what I eat, and how I put it together, but I really haven’t had to give anything up. That’s because one of the biggest concepts in the book (in my opinion) is that even when you do make a poor food choice (by doing something like eating traditional pizza- carbs AND bad fats together?) you’re only ever 3 hours away from getting back to your Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle.

I’m not a purist. I struggle sometimes staying on plan. I’m a person who loves sweets, and all that sugar is a no-no. I also love to eat fancy food when we travel, and don’t often take into account the plan when I am out and about. That means that yes, sometimes I make “bad” food choices just because they feel good to me. Sometimes, I do eat sugary chocolate cake, or a slice of pizza. I don’t do it often, but I do it (maybe once or twice a week) and I don’t get down on myself.

I wait my three hours, and then I get back to making good food choices.  Even “cheating” the way I do, with a couple bad meals here or there, I still lost 8 pounds the first month. I think it’s huge to recognize that even being a “cheater” like I am, this plan, and switching between Energizing and Satisfying meals revved up my metabolism, and the extra weight is still melting off.

What’s in the Book?

Trim Healthy Mama is a 600 page book. It’s HUGE. When it first arrived, I really thought there is no way I would find time to read it, let alone understand how to make this work, but I promise, it’s not as bad as it looks. It’s a pleasant read, it’s easy to understand, and much of the book is recipes.

Part 1: Gain the Knowledge: This section has all the background information on why Trim Healthy Mama works, and why what you have already been doing probably isn’t working.

Part 2: Practice the Knowledge: This is the section that really breaks down how to be a Trim Healthy Mama. When you get the book, if you want to dig right in, start here. Chapters 7,8 and 9 really spell out the basic ideas that you need to get started. This section also shows you how this plan isn’t a diet, so much as a change for life, how you can do this on a budget, and gives more information on the science of how it works.

Part 3: Join us in the Kitchen: This section is large, and has a TON of recipes to help you get started easily. Many of these recipes are for “specialty” items, like oatmeal based pancakes (since the white flour ones are not going to help you stay trim), and other foods that fill a special niche in the plan. Many of them call for substitute sweeteners since sugar is off-plan. You can eat the Trim Healthy Mama way without these sweeteners, but I have found this recipe section invaluable for when I have a craving for something I know I shouldn’t eat (like cake, pizza or pancakes).

Part 4: Our Past and Present: This section explains where the authors are coming from and how they became Trim Healthy Mamas.

Part 5: More than Food:
This final section goes beyond the Trim Healthy Mama diet. The authors discuss everything from fitness, sex, hormones, pregnancy, and yes, even sex.

My Results

I’m totally cringing at sharing these pictures with you guys, but I told myself if I was going to do this as a review, I was going to give it my all- and that includes showing you that I really did get results.

Trim Healthy Mama works fast!
At first, I was thinking I didn’t have any “before” picture to share- and then I remembered this one. This blue dress is my favorite. When I bought it, it was really loose all over. And then I saw this picture. It was taken this fall, and all of a sudden, I had that tire around my middle. I couldn’t believe how much I didn’t even look like ME! The “After” picture was taken this morning on my way out the door.

I can’t believe how different the side by side pictures look! After about 8 weeks on plan, that tire is much, much smaller. My clothes fit much better. I have more energy, and my sugar cravings don’t happen as often as they used to. I feel fabulous, and I think I am starting to look much more like me! I still have probably 20-30 more pounds to lose, but I am well on my way to being a Trim Healthy Mama!

Getting Started With Trim Heathy Mama

When you get your book, if you want to dig into the plan right away (and feel intimidated by the 600 page book!) start by reading chapter 7 (go for the plan), chapter 8 (satisfying meals) and chapter 9 (energizing meals). These three chapters will give you the basis of understanding what an “S” meal is, and what an “E” meal is.

Basically, know that “S” meals have healthy, good for you fats, and almost no carbs, and “E” meals have good carbs, but almost no fat. Aim to have one “S” or “E” meal each day, and slowly work up to having more on plan meals each day. Check the recipe section for help finding what to eat. My personal favorites are the “E” pancakes, the egg breakfasts, and the veggie sides with some grilled lean meats.

While you used to eating on plan for a meal or two a day, dig into the book starting with Chapter 1. The first section is a pretty easy read, and hopefully will help motivate you. Once you have “E” and “S” meals down, start reading chapter 10, and continue on with the rest of the book.

You can also look for support groups on Facebook (start with the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook page, and do a search there for specific support groups) where thousands of other Trim Healthy Mamas share their experiences and recipes.

    No idea if THM considers it healthy, as I’ve never at all been able to grasp all the rules, but one of my standby breakfasts when I’m trying to be healthy is a couple eggs scrambled with fresh spinach, mushrooms, a bit of onions, some fresh tomatoes if I have them, and feta cheese. And a cup of coffee, or two. With creamer. Because I will not give up my coffee & creamer.

  2. Melanie says

    I’ve been following THM for a few weeks on FB. The testimonies from so many woman having success in becoming more healthy is so encouraging! It does seem confusing, but I’m hoping the book will help make it simpler. I think I’m ready to take the next step & try this lifestyle change! I hope I win the book!!

  3. DanH says

    My wife is really enjoying the benefits of this diet. A book of her own to replace the borrowed library copy would be cool!

  4. JHollyhock (aka Jennifer H.) says

    Hmmm…..I love food! For breakfast I love to eat Secret Agent Brownies (borrowed the book from the library :-)) and for lunch I enjoy a wrap with lettuce and some kind of chicken. My favorite dinner is some kind of yummy slab of red meat with sauteed onions, mushrooms and green beans. Before THM I would have loved some garlic mashed potatoes with that.

  5. Toni says

    Our favorite healthy meal is straight from the farmer’s market. We love to go as a family on Saturday morning, picking and choosing things we love — fresh goat cheese, local veggies and more. We come home and set it all up on a big tray for everyone to nibble from.

  6. 7kidsinTx says

    I would love to read this book! I have 7 kids and turning 40 has made for some changes in my body! As for healthy foods, I love soup packed with veggies!

  7. says

    I haven’t tried making any THM recipes yet, but my sister-in-law made me a delicious cake-in-a-jar that I was able to eat without upsetting my acid reflux (hiatal hernia related) and my possible gastroparesis issues.
    I’ve been on a limited diet these last few weeks to try and help myself feel better (because who wants stomach issues on top of a neurological disorder?), and it was great to know that I could eat something that tasted good without having to suffer later!

  8. Tammy R. says

    I have no idea yet what THM considers healthy yet but my favorite food right now is homemade taco with the sprouted corn shells. so yummy!

  9. Melinda Littlefield says

    I love taco salad. With our without meat. I also love veggies! I have been really wanting to look into this book! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  10. Cheryl Baranski says

    Potato soup with califlower substituted for over half of the potatoes.
    Lots of celery and carrots in it, sometimes even some spinach.

  11. Katie Lachman says

    I don’t know what counts as ‘healthy’ anymore. I’m looking forward to a chance to really read this book. I love salads, and grilled chicken. Also whole wheat baked goods.

  12. says

    My favorite “healthy” foods are Greek yogurt, and steel-cut oatmeal. I love soup too. What I (and my family) need most is to up the amount of veggies we eat.

  13. Karen says

    This book has given me the hope my doctors couldn’t after battling cancer. My weight was just written off a just-have-to-live-with-it. NOT SO! Love the thin mint milkshake and the weight is coming off. :-)

  14. Daria says

    I am curious, I need to make healthier choice for myself as well as my family. Weight loss would definitely be helpful.

  15. Renee says

    I haven’t actually started yet because I haven’t gotten quite far enough in the book to feel comfortable enough to start. I really hope to start really soon!!!!! I am disabled and cannot afford to buy the book (I have the ebook version) so I would love to get a hard copy so that I can use the receipe’s a lot easier!

  16. Kim says

    Rosemary chicken (chicken breast atop red potatoes, carrots, onion, and celery tossed in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and sprigs of rosemary baked for about an hour). Simple and delicious but potatoes are out on this “diet”.

  17. Kim says

    Rosemary chicken (chicken breast atop red potatoes, carrots, onion, and celery tossed with limited olive oil, salt, pepper, and sprigs of rosemary baked in the oven for an hour). I understand the potatoes would pose a problem for this “diet”.

  18. Sherry Hunter says

    I loved reading your blog. I just recently heard about THM and am interested in learning more. I like making a veggie omelet that is healthy and delicious!

  19. Cindy Ens says

    Skinny chocolate is even better than grocery store chocolate bars, and cheaper! The sourdough bread and sprouted grain bread is delicious

  20. Beverly Steele says

    Favorite healthy meal?… Well, I love a good salad with meat, like grilled chicken, taco meat, strips of ham and turkey, and lots of different vegetables… Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. Amber says

    I don’t know if this fits anything in the book but I love tortilla chips (I eat just a serving size with lots of “stuff” on each bite) with Greek yogurt, salsa, shredded cheddar and guacamole!

  22. Kelly Youngblood says

    My favorite healthy meal lately was grilled tilapia, sautéed fresh green beans & asparagus, and a baked sweet potato. So very yummy. Thank you for the chance to win! Congratulations on your success!!

  23. Stephanie says

    I love a good old fashioned veggie soup: homemade chicken broth, all types of veggies, and a few spices.. Yum!

  24. Marie says

    I don’t know if Ceaser salad is healthy but if it is it’s probably one of my favorites. Plain yogurt with home-canned fruit -canned in fruit juice. Fresh fruits. Rice & chicken. red beans & cabbage. So much good food!

  25. Lorie says

    I love smoothies! Thanks so much for such a great review. I have been researching the plan for awhile but this really helped to simplify it! If I don’t win the book, I will be purchasing it soon!

  26. Kaleigh says

    Just reread the entry rqmts… Sorry, feeding my kiddos while trying to do this. Favorite meal is anything Italian! I could eat lasagna and pizza all day!

  27. Kaleigh says

    I would love to win a copy. I’ve been following thm for a few months, but cannot afford the book right now as a stay at home mom of two. This would be a huge blessing!

  28. Kelly Schaefer says

    My favorite healthy meal is fresh lettuce and salad greens with tomatoes, two poached eggs on this bed, as nd topped with fresh shaves of parmesan cheese.

  29. Jessica Mohnkern says

    I LOVE the Cottage Berry Whip. My kids love it, too! The only “problem” with that is, I don’t want to share!! 😉

  30. Payton says

    I’ve been doing THM for 3 months and have lost 17 lbs but after a weekend away with my hubby, I’m struggling to fight off the 4 lbs gained back. Thanks for reminding me why I love THM!

  34. Danielle Brandon says

    My favorite healthy meal would be any stir fry loaded with veggies. Great review & helped me understand a lot more!

  35. says

    I am so confused about the right way to eat, I think I eat healthily and I feed my family healthy foods. I make almost everything from scratch and cater to lactose intolerance but I am so overweight and need help to know how to lose it .

  36. Ruth W. says

    Grilled sweet potatoes, beets, and brussel sprouts over a bed of spinach, topped with chickpeas, avacado, alfalfa sprouts and oil & vinegar dressing! :-)

  41. Channell says

    Bacon, egg, and veggie omelettes covered in hollandaise sauce with a side of hash-browns and salsa, and tortillas/ toast with lots of real organic butter =q I’m not a THM yet!

  42. says

    This eating plan sounds terribly complicated and I am uncomfortable with the Stevia brands they choose. I borrowed the book from a friend and I was totally overwhelmed! Maybe my own copy would help.

  43. Linda H. says

    My favorite healthy meal is homemade chicken tortilla soup with a side salad – lots of veggies and not too many carbs!! Yum! :-)

  44. Susan howes says

    Thank you for sharing your story so far. I have six children and have gained weight over the years. I have 30-49 to lose.

  45. Julie Durheim says

    I made a veggie and broth base soup the other day with a yummy broccoli beef flare…. it was mmm good! Love cake in a mug, too… with a few rasberries and some greek yog on top!

  46. KT says

    From the book (which I have to keep borrowing from the library) the Fat Stripping Frappe, and another recipe I like is the sourdough bread,cheese, turkey combo for breakfast, also from the book. As far as a whole meal… we had meatloaf, salad, and green bean fries this evening and it was great!

  47. Sandy says

    I have been searching for a basic overview of the plan and you have done it! Excellent work! Thank you, thank you!

  48. Terri Cooper says

    I like this program, was at a stall, already eating low carb, high protein. This plan still helps me continue with this way of eating & at the same time helping me rev up my metabolism, breaking the long stall I was in.

  49. Heather says

    Thanks for this review! I just started THM yesterday, and I’ve been feeling bad about “slipping up”. I love that you pointed out that I’m always just 3hrs away from getting back on track. What an awesome perspective!!

  50. says

    I just got this book and was completely confused by the FB group. I started reading it yesterday and was telling a friend about it today. I’d love to win her a copy! My favorite healthy meal is Baked chicken.

  51. Rebekah Miller says

    I don’t have a favorite he because we haven’t done it but I’m looking forward to the lower carb breads an desserts as I am now type 1 diabetic.

    • Christine Bingler says

      I’m beginning THM (in my 3rd week now), and I have been type 1 diabetic for 13 years (diagnosed at age 21). The low glycemic carb meals really are good for me, and I need to take less insulin with those. But I’m finding that with the fat meals, I still have to pay attention to the little carbs in what I eat and maybe even take a bit more insulin per carb than usual. For example, the S meals have less than 10 carbs for the whole meal, so I should be taking 1 unit (my I:C ratio is 1:7), but if I only take 1 unit, my sugars will still be higher. I’m finding that if I do an S meal, I automatically do 2 units, and I’m good. And yes, their muffin in a mug is great! (I figure one unit per muffin.)

      So, overall, I’m taking MUCH less insulin overall, and it’s giving me lots more wonderful tasting low carb meals and snacks.

  52. says

    You look great! I am in much need of new recipes and a way to shed weight without a diet. I want a lifestyle change ~ and this seems to be that way!

  53. says

    I would love this book. I have 10 kids ages 14 yo – 1 yo but have had 12 pregnancies in 13 years. My husband was in an accident 1 1/2 years ago which left him a quadrapledgic. I was newly pregnant and ended up gaining more weight than normal with him in the hospital for 2 months in a different city and our new life adjustments. The weight just hasn’t been coming off as quickly.

    One of my healthy meals is Black Bean soup.

  54. says

    right now I could eat roasted broccoli ALL DAY LONG!!! And any fresh fruit with vanilla yogurt. Yum. Would love to win this book as I need to change my lifestyle NOW!! :)

  55. Ginny says

    I have recently discovered that I can’t eat gluten anymore. I’m not sure why, but my body doesn’t agree with it. And I asked the writers of this book and most of the recipes are gluten free! So I’m really excited to try it!

  56. Shelley says

    At 41 and after baby #2 with a body that hasn’t “bounced” back…I’d love to get a copy of this and see what everyone is talking about. I’d like to find the real me again…

  57. says

    I love grilled salmon better than almost anything. :) I also love a good salad even without any dressing…my new favorite thing is to add cilantro to it for a wonderful flavor.

  58. Rebecca says

    My favorite healthy meal is Spaghetti squash spaghetti. I would love to win this book and learn more about the eating method.

  59. Shannon Mc. says

    I have been contemplating THM for awhile now. Based on your review I can’t wait to get the book! Looks like something I can actually follow through with! Thank you!

    Lately, sweet potatoes have been amazing to me! I never realized how versatile they are! Would love to win the book to try some of the THM recipes! :)

  61. says

    I’ve been following THM on facebook for a long time and just finished my first week mostly on plan. Would love an actual book!

  64. Lesley says

    My sil told me about their fb and I have been trying to figure it all out. I keep thinking about buying the book but can’t decide between an ebook or hard copy! I see all of these amazing results and I really wonder if it’s for real!! Thanks for your review!

  65. Nicole says

    It’s hard to pick just one…I really like the “Just like campbell’s tomato soup” from the book. Also love Good girl moonshine with lemon and frozen strawberries. And eggs fried in butter, bacon, coffee with cream and fresh berries.

  66. Susan says

    Black beans & rice with salsa, scallions, & low-fat cheddar cheese. I don’t know if this fits in the plan, because I haven’t read the book yet. But I’d like to!

  67. says

    I’m not sure what my favorite healthy meal is… I am new to THM and have been thinking seriously of joining everyone in this journey. The price of a new book though is a bit high for me to get at this time. I’m hoping to find it used somewhere so I can try it out. Thank you for allowing me this chance to win a copy! :)

  68. Tammy montgomery says

    My favorite healthy meal is anything with salmon or chicken breast, with brown rice and steamed broccoli !!

  69. Katie cox says

    I’ve been lurking on Trim healthy mama for awhile. Thinking it is time to take the plunge. You look great by the way!

    I am still learning. Thanks for the THM Plan explanation…it helps.

  74. Nicole says

    Thank you so much for this review. I haven’t purchased the book yet as I really had no idea what it was all about. This review helped immensely.

  75. Tia Stevens says

    I’m trying to figure out how to get the entries. When I click on them, it will say if your not a fan, you can become one here: and then there is nothing else to click on. Can you help me understand what I need to do . Thnaks

  76. Missy Smith says

    Can’t wait to start….after our 7 night cruise at the end of the month! Hoping to make this a family affair….fingers crossed!

  77. Caryn says

  78. Kami says

    I have been wanting to try Trim Healthy Mama, I had a baby 8 months ago and it is time to be back to my old self!!

  79. Alicia says

    My problem is that I’ve never really been purposeful about eating healthy so I can honestly say I don’t know of a healthy meal that is my favorite. I do love grilled Parmesan crusted asparagus if that counts! :)

  80. Susan Batty says

    I heard about this book from my chiropractor & am due to receive my copy on Monday. I cannot wait to start this program! Would love to win a copy to give to my best friend!

  81. Kathy says

    I am reading the book and super excited to get going! I am budgeting each week so that I can get the basics to really get off to a good start. Proud of your success…and lifestyle change! :)

  82. Carolyn McHugh says

    I have a lot of friends who are doing THM and are doing great! My favorite meal is meatloaf, carrots and potatoes. Yes, I know its not THM friendly (borrowed a friends book for a few day) but my favorite healthy dessert is black bean brownies

  83. Kim Lummus says

    Have been following the THM Facebook page for a while and would love to win a book!
    My favorite healthy meal is a grilled chicken breast with steamed broccoli.

  84. Gwen Heffernan says

    Several of my friends have become THMs and I have remained a skeptic. After 5 kids and dreading turning 40 in a couple months, I am becoming more interested and willing to give it a try. The cost of the book, however, has given me pause. It’s a big investment for me and if I could win a book for free . . . well, that would eliminate that obstacle! I have about 50 pounds to lose to reach my first goal (pre-every-pregnancy-weight) and then anther 20 or 30 to get back to my lowest since being married.

  85. Laura P says

    I’m just starting out and was so over whelmed at first then I tried a few meals and I’m hooked! Not as hard as I thought it would be!

  86. says

    I really enjoy having a lime avocado quesadilla for lunch. Whole wheat tortillas cheese, black beans drained and rinsed, 1/4 avocado (per whole quesadilla) and a squeeze of lime!

  87. Tammy says

    Favorite healthy meal is grilled veggies with grilled chicken And spaghetti squash with a lite marinera sauce.

  88. Lauren says

    My favorite healthy food is anything with bacon (in moderation, of course). I love that bacon is a yes on my “diet”! =)

  89. sunflowers06 says

    Wow you look awesome! I would love to have this book! My fav healthy meal is beef stew with lots of yummy veggies!

  90. says

    Congrats on your success! My favorite meal depends on mood and season but I really enjoy baked sweet potatoes, grilled chicken and another veggie side.

  91. Michele McCrory says

    I have borrowed a copy from a friend. My husband suffers from heartburn and my teenagers have horrible diets. I am hoping to make the change and better our eating lifestyles for good. If I don’t win this book, I will buy it! But would really like to own it soon! ~ Michele M.

  92. Dawn peterlein says

    Taco salad!!
    I realy want to win this book, and take it with me to the philippines!! Some missionary friends are starting an aquaponics farm for those living in a landfill, and trying to get them to take care of it instead of digging for plastic all day..as their chickens,cows, etc run around in it and eat from the landfill… and these teachings would help also with nutritious eating! Teaching community developement, nutition, and giving spiritual food as well!

  93. April says

    I have so many favorite healthy meals! Love salmon and steamed broccoli, THM pancakes and especially the cake batter frappa!

  94. andrea says

    Thank you for this opportunity! I am hopeful this does not post three times; it keeps bumping me out. I love the Balsamic Chicken but like you I was a milkshake girl and the smoothies are a marvelous life-saver for me :)

  95. Harmony says

    The favorite in our house that I used to get everyone slowly on board with me…THM pancakes…I added cinnamon and they think it is like an oatmeal cookie.

    I am going to start THM after I have my next baby. Already doing some of the shakes and smoothies and looking forward to doing more

    Great review – sharing for my friends on fb. I’m already a THMer, but sometimes it’s good to hear it from someone else. Thanks.

      Oh, and I don’t have a favorite healthy meal! We eat healthy just about all the time and I love tons of foods! Salads, meats, veggies… yummm!

    I’ve watched people have great success with THM but never looked to deeply into it because I’m not overweight. But I began to notice that the people who were using THM were not only losing weight but they felt better. They had more energy (and their husbands lost weight too!)… and it really caught my attention.
    I’m curious to see if these healthy changes will help me feel better and help my body function more as it was intended. :)

    Thank you for this opportunity — my favorite thm meal is probably the balsamic chicken but like you, I am a milkshake girl and the smoothies are a MARVELOUS life-saver for me :)

    One of my favorite healthy meals is scrambled eggs cooked with peppers and roast beef with avocado on the side. Loved this when I was doing the slow carb plan.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity. My favorite meal is probably Balsamic Chicken but I am a “milkshake” girl also and the smoothies have been a marvelous life-saver for me :)

    My favorite healthy meal is a huge salad with bacon (not too much) and blue cheese crumbles. Don’t tell me if that is not a healthy meal. 😀

    Thanks for hosting!
    Warmly,
    Kate

    I have the Epub version on my NOOk, but I have been wanting a physical copy for so long. This is the *one* program that I have had success with (when I follow it!). The value is not so much in the recipes but in the understanding of how our body burns fuel and how to separate or combine fuel sources.

    My favorite healthy meal is a big ol’ taco salad :) I use greek yogurt instead of sour cream, lean ground beef, lots of veggies and lettuce, a sprinkle of black beans, lots of salsa, green chilies… yum! No tortillas or taco shells needed.

    Great review! I’ve loved the Trim Healthy Mama plan. My husband and I have been on it for a month and I’ve lost 10 and he’s lost 15. I’m hoping to win a book to give to a friend or family member.

    You look great in both photos with your fantastic smile. It does make you feel better when the weight starts dropping off though. I know from experience. Good for you. Now give me the book! :)

    I love salmon, paired with a great salad and roasted veggies – Brussels sprouts, peppers, anything like that! I also love the stuffed French toast and THM pancakes.

  107. Sabrina says

    I love veggies soups! Minestrone, Tomato, Veggie – the problem is finding good quality ones that are low sodium and easy to grab on the go. Hopefully this book has some great soup recipes!
