  • The Plan

  • Is The Healthy Happy Mum Plan the same as The Terri-Ann 123 Diet Plan?

    No, it is a completely different product. The Healthy Happy Mum Plan was created by Katie Piper & Terri-Ann Nunns for mums who wish to get fit, healthy and happy!

    The Healthy Happy Mum Plan is mainly based around calories, not around different food groups. The Healthy Happy Mum Plan has no restrictions on any food groups.

  • What food can you eat?

    There really are no restrictions. The manual will help you to make the best choices for your new eating regime.

  • Can I use my own recipes?

    Yes! We encourage you to use your own recipes as well the ones we provide as long as you check the calories are within the guide-lines. You can do this by using a simple calorie counter.

  • Can the whole family enjoy the meals?

    The plan has been designed around a family lifestyle so the whole family can enjoy the delicious food. Some of our recipes within the book have a stamp of approval by our children too!

  • Can I eat carbohydrates on this plan?

    Yes, there are no restrictions in any food groups, and you can enjoy carbohydrates with every meal as long as it’s within your calorie guidelines.

  • What if I don’t like a food item on the plan?

    Don’t worry - you make your own meals according to the calorie intake so you can opt out of any foods you do not like.

  • Can I start the plan any day of the week?

    Yes, you can start from any day of the week that suits you.

  • I work shifts would it be suitable?

    Yes, it would work well with a busy lifestyle and was designed for that purpose. We would advise that you pre-make your meals for the days you are on shift to ensure you stay on plan.

  • Do I have to snack?

    For maximum results, we would advise snacking, but there are no set times - just eat your calorie controlled snacks whenever you feel hungry.

  • Can I enjoy treats?

    The plan has been designed so you can enjoy a treat once a week as we both believe mums deserve treats too. Once a week, you will be given an additional 300 calories to use as you wish.

  • Do I have to have a treat day?

    No, this day is optional.

  • Can I eat out on the plan?

    Yes, the plan is a very sociable plan. We provide help and guidance on good choices when eating out.

  • What can I eat from a takeaway or if I’m eating out?

    We have provided you with a list of take away and eating out ideas in your plan.

  • Can I follow the plan if I am a vegan or vegetarian?

    Yes, you can follow the plan if you are vegan or vegetarian as you control your own food choices. We have also included some vegetarian recipes and you can adapt others - replacing meat for vegetables too!

  • Can I follow the plan with food intolerances?

    Yes, we advise that you make adjustments to suit your intolerance as you would normally.

  • Can I have fizzy drinks?

    Yes, you can, although we recommend limiting your intake. Remember that fizzy drinks which contain sugar contain calories so if you want to have fizzy drinks, choose the sugar-free versions.

  • Can I drink alcohol on the plan?

    We advise that women that are breastfeeding do not consume alcohol as the alcohol can reach the breastmilk and therefore the baby. For those that are not breastfeeding we recommend adhering to government guidelines of drinking no more than 14 units per week, to have at least a couple of alcohol-free days in the week, and avoiding drinking large volumes of alcohol at any one time. Remember that alcohol contains calories too so allow for this within your calorie allowances if you do choose to consume alcohol.

  • How much weight can I expect to lose on the plan?

    Whether you have a lot or a little weight to lose, we can help you reach your weight loss goals. The plan supports the recommended healthy, sustainable weight loss. Our weight loss results may vary due to a variety of personal factors - remember everybody is different.

  • Is exercise compulsory?

    Exercise isn’t compulsory although we do encourage some exercise for maximum results. This can include gentle exercise such as a brisk walk, a family swim, or even doing six loads of washing!

    Always check with a health professional before undertaking any exercise regime.

  • Medical & Pregnancy

  • Can I follow the plan with a pre-existing medical condition?

    If you have a pre-existing medical condition, it is always best to consult a doctor/nurse before starting any new diet plan. Your health is important, so make sure you take care of yourself and listen to your body.

  • Is the plan safe to follow whilst pregnant?

    We do not recommend dieting or beginning any new exercise regime whilst pregnant. We would advise pregnant women to follow the maintenance advice in the plan as healthy eating is advised until 8 weeks postpartum.

  • How soon after giving birth can I start the plan?

    Your body needs time to recover from your pregnancy and the labour of having a baby. Take a few weeks to enjoy your new bundle of joy and don’t rush your weight loss journey. Your postnatal check will usually happen between six weeks and eight weeks post birth so this is usually around the time when your midwife/health professional will confirm whether it is safe for you to start a restricted diet plan and and begin any exercise you may wish to undertake.

  • Can I follow the plan if I’m breastfeeding?

    Yes, we have designed the plan so it is suitable for breastfeeding mums too. Please read the breastfeeding chapter and always seek advice from your health professional before undertaking any diet regimes, particularly when pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Does breastfeeding promote weight loss?

    If you follow a nutritionally balanced plan, breastfeeding can help you lose your pregnancy weight without compromising either your health, or your baby’s health. You also naturally burn calories to make breast milk every time you nurse.

  • Do I need to take multivitamins?

    Please find nutritional supplement recommendations in the breastfeeding section. Although it may not be essential, you may wish to consider taking a multivitamin and mineral supplement, especially if breastfeeding, to ensure an optimal intake of vitamins and minerals in your diet.
