Trim Healthy Mama is not about obsessing or number counting. But having a few guidelines can help you bring your eating into balance. This can be especially important if you have gotten confused with all the chatter around about what you “should” and “should not” eat.


Your body craves balance. Blood sugar balance, fat balance, and carb balance.


With Trim Healthy Mama, you will bring your body into a place of healing and balance so it can release fat. You do this by cycling your fuels. Choosing a fat focus fuel (S-Satisfying) means you add healthy fats to your protein-focused meal but keep your carbs very low. A carb-focused meal (E-Energizing) is focused on a lean protein with added healthy carbs. Both meals should include good amounts of non-starchy veggies. Read here for a refresher on your fat & carb number guidelines.


Let’s take a look now at the Fuel Pull meal (FP). This meal will be centered around lean protein ...

Do I have to count carbs?

Oct 18, 2022
You can learn a lot about what you are putting into your body by simply taking a moment to read the labels on packages. 
Let’s get super clear on what you are looking for when you read those labels. <<Click for a helpful guide
When you are putting together an S (Satisfying) meal, you will be focusing on fats anchored by protein but limiting carbs. Your carb count should not exceed 10 grams for an S meal. You will not count the carbs in non-starchy vegetables, those are freebies!
For an E (Energizing) meal, your focus is to anchor your lean protein with healthy carbs. You may include starchier vegetables and will keep your carb amount 45 grams or less. Watch your fat amounts with this meal and keep the fat amount 5 grams or less.
If you find that a regular E meal is a bit more carbs than your body likes, feel free to rotate out with a pulled-back E meal. Take your carb amount down to 12 grams instead of 45 grams.

How to feel satisfied and lose weight

Oct 04, 2022


Have you ever wondered if fat plays a role in your weight loss journey? If so, what kind and how much? Or does that even matter:)


Let’s take a look at the S fuel, the SATISFYING fuel.


Fats are satisfying. When you eat fatty food or a fatty meal, you're usually satisfied for a good long time. 


The S(atisfying) meal includes protein plus fat. 


How much protein should you be eating? Normally, you can look at the size of your palm. And that's about how much protein you need. At each meal. You’re looking anywhere from 15 - 30 grams of protein. Anchor all of your meals and snacks with some type of protein to help keep your blood sugar stable.


The S(atisfying) meal is protein PLUS non starchy veggies PLUS fat.


Non Starchy veggies are the vegetables that don't have a lot of starch in them. They're not carb heavy at all. Look at broccoli and summer squash. Check out cauliflower and Romaine lettuce.
