Trim Healthy Mama Review & Giveaway!

I don’t know about you, but I have been looking for the right ‘diet’ for years. I have searched for answers to help me gain balance in my health. Even the word diet makes me cringe and my body begin to rebel and want to pig-out right then and there. No carbs. No red meat. Nothing but veggies and fruits or cabbage soup for 1 month [you’ve tried this one haven’t you?]. For me, this just has not been easy. I need answers that will give me facts [not opinions] about food and it’s affect on my body, as well as give me peace of mind to know it’s okay to eat and not starve myself to lose those stubborn pounds that plague my body. Why does it have to be difficult?

Cue: Trim Healthy Mama! That Name alone get’s my attention. I love it! Don’t we all want to be trim, healthy, and comfortable in our own bodies? Well, after five years of thorough research, two mamas have put together the balance we have been looking for in a comprehensive guide to help us mamas find health and wholeness.


Trim Healthy Mama is written by sisters, Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett, daughters of Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies. These sweet ladies are wives and mothers of large families. They are busy mamas and they know how difficult it is to feed their family healthy meals. They have worked hard to find the best for them. The result is 5 long years of study and research turning into a nutrition book beyond any I have ever read, and I have read a lot! Not one book I read in the past was easy to implement. This one has changed my mind.

Trim Healthy Mama is NOT a diet. THM is about eating balanced, eating smart. It is about health, hormones, marriage, and so much more. It is an encyclopedia of a wealth of information on how our modern day diets and our understanding of how to really eat are destroying our health. Serene and Pearl cover the spectrum from food, health, supplementing, hormone balancing, effective exercising, and having a healthy married intimate life. As an added bonus it is also filled with 100‘s of recipes to boost your metabolism, decrease fat, and keep you healthy and satisfied!

Trim Healthy Mama is practical and so easy to implement. Though it is a whopping 640 pages of healthy goodness, through their delightful conversational approach and wealth of information, you will find it to be a lifestyle you want to put into action in your life, no matter how busy. So far it has been that easy for me. They have even included a meal plan for you to follow to jump-start your fat loss today.

All of their recipes are tried and true, tested on their own families before they even thought about sharing it with us. You know it had to be delicious! No food group has been left out. It covers whole grains, meat, fruit and vegetables, even gravies, sauces, and condiments, and healthy fats, like dairy, coconut oil, and coconut milk. One of their main messages to us is “Never combine fats and carbs.”

They even share their own personal stories of their journey to health. They don’t miss a beat. I truly believe you are going to enjoy this book. I know I have.

You can find Serene and Pearl on their Facebook page sharing even more nuggets of wisdom on nutrition and health, as well as menu plans they use and recipes [with pictures] that they (or their FB friends) have made themselves.

    Hi! I am a mom of two wonderful teenaged sons. We have been homeschooling for thirteen years. I feel so blessed. As I approach my forty-eighth birthday, I am struck by the fact that I really need to focus on my health. I have several health concerns that would be greatly benefited by losing weight . I have struggled with weight and food problems my whole life. I would really appreciate winning a copy of Trim Healthy Mama! My whole family needs their mama to be her best!!

  2. Rachel Taylor says

    I have gained a lot of weight having 4 kids in 7 years. Number 5 is due in May and I’m ready to get this stubborn weight off and find ways to get my family healthier along the way!

  3. Stephanie Branch says

    This is just for me!!! I have been looking for something that I can use, not just for me, but for my whole family to eat healthy and live a healthy life that God wants. I want to show my husband and children that eating healthy can be as easy as making the right choices and can be yummy too. I have been unsuccessful in diet changes in the past because of having to make “special meals” for me and I need something like this book!! Thanks!

  4. says

    I need this book for a few reasons: I have gained some weight since our move and would like to tackle it for long term, I am an extremist by personality and would like to learn how to keep eating healthy without fads, and I would like to pass this information to my four daughters (and even my two sons).

  5. Michelle says

    I have been wanting this book since I knew it was being written, but the finances just aren’t there to get it. I am having my 7th child in June and not only want this for me, but to teach my family how to be healthy!

  6. Dianne says

    I am the Mom of 7 children (4 biological, 3 step). We have 2 in college, 2 in high school, 2 in middle school and a 2 year old. I have struggled with some health issues over the last few years including diabetes and kidney stones. When my youngest was born I was given an antibiotic IV. I have since learned that this has created an imbalance in my digestive track resulting in chronic yeast infections and Candida. I have always been a very active, hands-on parent. I am reaching a point in my life, where I cannot take my health for granted anymore. I want to be able to participate as fully in my youngest’s life, as I have all my other children. I want to achieve the most optimal health I can and maintain it for the long term, so I can be the best Mom I can for my kids.

  7. Dara says

    I have been interested in this book for quite some time, but wasn’t ready to read it or receive it. God has been doing a work in my life from the inside out and now, I am ready to take on this battle for my health. I have three active toddler boys and a wonderful husband. I want to be healthy for them, but most importantly, I want to be healthy because that is what God desires of us.

  8. Vicki B. says

    I am a wife and mother of 4 active blessings. The past several years I have been dealing with chronic pain and illness(with several trips to the hospital). Although my health has been upfront and center I have yet been able to lose weight and keep it off. I need help in this area especially because of low energy levels and being unable to get out of bed at times. I still homeschool and will continue to do so indefinately but I need help!

  9. Felicia says

    I would love to have a copy of this book to help me lose the 20 pounds left from pregnancy that have been hanging out for the past 2 years!

  10. Susan P says

    I have also tried many “diets” and just need to eat healthy! I want to be able to keep running around with my kids and live long enough to see grandchildren!

  11. says

    In the mix of mothering/homeschooling/homemaking I’ve allowed myself to nose dive into unhealthy eating and exercising habits. I’ve made a firm commitment to take back over in this area…and I’m acutally sticking with it. I think this book would be a great benefit to learn HOW to be successful without diets, pills etc.

  12. Christine O says

    I need something that will fit my lifestyle, because being a mom is a FULL-time job. I really would like to become healthier for my sake and for my kids (and someday for my grandkids).

  13. Deana says

    I would love some help working on a healthy lifestyle. I have three little ones and need all the help I can get to keep my energy level up. Our whole family could benefit. Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. DSZ says

    My interest has been intrigued with the various & unique recipes in the book. Really?… a 600 page book of recipes and tips. I would love sharing the contents with others to keep chipping away at the standard American diet that is accepted today. Thank you for the opportunity.

  15. says

    I need this book because being a trim healthy mom is every mom’s dream….and it has always seemed to unattainable. With 6 kids that I want to be around for, I could use the inspiration.

  16. Nancy says

    I need this book because I keep crashing from eating too many carbs and sugar. I’m hoping for a lifestyle change and not just another yo-yo diet! Thank you
