What is Trim Healthy Mama?

Trim Healthy Mama is a simple, effective practical lifestyle program that helps anyone of all ages and stages of life slim down or gain weight (depending upon your needs) and gain greater health. The THM plan can be customised to fit your individual needs, preferences, challenges and circumstances.

Health First

THM is a blood sugar friendly, protein centred way of eating that includes all food groups. It cuts neither carbs, nor fats but instead causes the body to burn them in the most efficient way to trim excess fat from the body.

There is no major emphasis on counting numbers or portion sizes. Health comes first then the trim happens naturally. It is a life long journey that offers much grace and encourages joy.

THM focuses on one major fuel at a time if weight loss is desired.

  • S meals focus on fats.
  • E meals focus on gentle carbs.


No counting calories! No excluding food groups!

We like to nourish the body and fuel it in a healthy way.

As your THM Coach I will work with you to customise the plan so that it suits your life, your family, your preferences and your needs so that you can be at your best weight and ultimate health. I have been on this plan for over 7 years and have already helped and coached many women in the Aussie FB group to attain their goals.

I specialise in helping women during the later hormonal years and those who struggle with diabetes and/or fluctuating blood sugar levels. It is my desire and my passion to equip and encourage women to create their trim and healthy lifestyle using THM principles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is THM Family Friendly?
Absolutely! Family friendly recipes are what this plan is geared around. Chilli, Meatloaf and Pizza recipes are easily made on plan. Many of these Trim Healthy Mama tweaked recipes are hits with every member of the family. If a certain family member doesn’t enjoy the Trim Healthy Mama twist on a family favourite, you don’t need to force the issue, Often family members “come around” to Trim Healthy Mama style after time passes and your results and joy over your food start speaking for themselves.
Do I Need Special Ingredients?

The majority of the breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes in the book use normal ingredients found in pantries and grocery stores everywhere.  THM desserts do call for Stevia extract or a stevia blend so that will be your first, most important purchase.

Is THM Gluten Free?

Most of the recipes in the book do not use ingredients with gluten. Sprouted or sour dough breads are on plan options for people who tolerate them well but Trim Healthy Mama is easily implemented completely gluten free.

Can I Eat Out On This Plan?

Trim Healthy Mama has a no self-loathing policy. Almost everyone chooses to eat off plan foods now and then but the Trim Healthy Mama way is to forgive, forget and eat a delicious on plan meal as soon as you are able. A slimming Trim Healthy Mama meal is always only three hours away from a mishap. But eating out does not have to mean you’ll cheat. There are many delicious options to choose from at every restaurant that will allow you to stay on plan.

What If I Don't Need To Lose Weight?

Trim Healthy Mama addresses how to maintain or even gain weight in a healthy, nourishing way that’s totally appropriate for kids, husbands, or mamas.  And it’s easy to apply the weight loss principles for some and the gain or maintenance principles for others, all in one meal.

Is THM Religious?

Trim Healthy Mama welcomes people of all religions and even non religions. It is not affiliated with any one ministry or denomination but the authors make no apology that the book was written from a Christian perspective as that is their belief system. But any woman of any belief system or background is welcome to do the plan and to join the group. There is a no judgment policy toward others in the Trim Healthy Mama community.

What Does a THM Coach Do?
A THM coach is one who is expert in the area of the Trim Healthy Mama plan. A coach works in partnership with their clients to teach the plan, provide accountability, set goals, and take action to achieve and sustain their weight loss goals. I am also a certified Precision Nutrition coach so am able to help you outside of the THM lifestyle – paleo, keto, low carb, high-carb, vegan, WFPB or more.
How Long Can We Work Together?

Clients find the greatest success when they work with me for a minimum of 3 months and other clients are on board for a 12 month cycle.


We are learning new habits and developing new ways of thinking and reacting… and this takes time and experience. I am committed to working with a client for as long as it takes to achieve their goals.

Is THM Easy to Follow?
There is a learning curve to Trim Healthy Mama. It is not designed like most conventional diets as a 30 or 90 day plan. You are not instructed what to eat at every meal with portion sizes dictated to you. The plan encourages you to learn to put meals together that will suit your own needs, challenges and food preferences. Since Trim Healthy Mama is geared as a lifelong plan, you learn as you go, but after a while it becomes second nature for most people.
Is This Safe When Pregnant/ Nursing?

Trim Healthy Mama can meet the nutritional needs of both pregnant and nursing women and their babies. Each Mama can tweak the plan to suit her own needs and those of their growing baby. Serene, (the co-author of the book) completed two healthy pregnancies eating the Trim Healthy Mama way and nourished both babies with an abundant supply of milk.

Is THM Expensive?

The majority of the breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes in the book use normal ingredients found in pantries and grocery stores everywhere.  Trim Healthy Mama desserts do call for stevia extract or a stevia blend so that will be your first, most important purchase. We have many Mamas who do the plan on very strict budgets, and the plan was written when the authors themselves were pinching pennies.  So it can be very budget friendly…that is entirely up to you!  Pearl & Serene do showcase some items from their pantry in the book, and introduce you to some fun & unique specialty ingredients, but the plan itself can be done with very basic ingredients. It can be as simple and basic or as decadent as you desire.

What If I'm Too Busy?

The authors designed this plan to be infused into the chaos and craziness we all call life. They know women are maxed out with the list of things they already have to do. Becoming a slave to the kitchen in order to achieve a healthy waistline and nourish a family is not possible for most of us. Trim Healthy Mama is applying nutritional common sense in a achievable manner.

What If I am Dairy Free or have Allergies?

Many of the Mamas in our community are successfully on plan with a variety of allergens in the mix. Nut milk and coconut products can replace many dairy options and goat or sheep’s cheese like (Kirkland Pecorino) from Costco, make tasty dairy cheese alternatives.

Can This Work If I Live Outside the USA?

Absolutely! And if you need support, there are certified coaches available as well as the universal THM forum and Facebook support groups in just about every country.

Who Do You Work With Mainly?

Usually, my clients are 25 to 65 year-old women who want to lose weight OR feed their growing family well. My clients will learn the plan and be empowered in how to implement the plan for their specific need.
