Becoming a mom is hard work, and losing the baby weight can be difficult for some women to achieve through diet and exercise alone. As mothers ourselves, we know how difficult postpartum weight loss can be.
Maybe you lost the baby weight effortlessly with your first child or couldn’t lose it at all, only to have struggled for months or even years with your second, third or fourth child. We are here to tell you that we, too, have struggled. After having children, our bodies changed and at times, it felt like we couldn’t crack the postpartum weight loss code. We were filled with doubt and concern that we may be stuck in these “mom bods” forever.
It wasn’t until our founder, Brooke “Ila”, struggled for over a year to lose the baby weight after welcoming her second child that she set out to find a solution. Thousands of dollars and countless doctors visits later, it was revealed that her lab results were pristine, yet still no diet or workout routine was making any sort of impact on weight loss.
Finally, at sixteen months postpartum, she was introduced to a reputable holistic doctor in Nashville who put her on a liver detox program. This medical grade program targeted inflammation and gut repair, and she started seeing immediate results. At that point, Brooke realized that postpartum weight loss was more than just the food she consumed and exercise she put in; what she needed was a total body reset.
With phenomenal results, she tailored the cleanse to become the Postpartum Slimdown with her sister, Taylor Weaver, MS, RDN, a registered dietician with five years of clinical experience in weight management.
Together, they created the Postpartum Slimdown to fit accordingly with their busy lifestyles as moms, yet being the only program to deliver steadfast results in a moderate amount of time. For us, it has been the only postpartum “diet” that has worked, helping to fight inflammation, restore gut health and return the body to a natural state of weight loss capability.
With this program, we hope that mothers, like us, can bounce back even better after baby! Let’s do this, ladies.
