What is THM

THM stands forTrim Healthy Mama. Their slogan “You’ll never look at food the same way again!” is quite possibly an understatement! Those of you who have been changed (for life) by this way of eating know what I’m talking about. In a nutshell, THM is about pairing your foods so as to prohibit spiking your blood sugar, which will then enable your metabolism to take the name “burning furnace”. This, my friends, is a very good thing!

So by the way, this is not a “for women only” lifestyle. This food plan is for ANYONE and EVERYONE! Once you understand the principles of the lifestyle, you will then have the freedom to pair foods as you wish that will suit your personal needs. Gluten free or not, allergies or no allergies, THM is for you.

A glimpse into my THM life…some of my staple foods include: chocolate, lemon truffle balls, chocolate peanut butter protein milkshakes, homemade pizza, heavy cream, cheese, butter and MUCH more! Aaaand I’m losing weight and inches. No lie. Sound intriguing? I encourage you to check out their book and browse through the THM Facebook page!

      Hi Lysa! Welcome to THM life! Xylitol is pretty different than stevia. A few things to take note about xylitol…It tastes amazing, however some people have found if you eat too much of it, it can cause stomach issues. I have personally had some not-so-fun experiences myself, so this is why you will find only a small amount of xylitol in my recipes and I pair it with other sweeteners. I find that diversifying sweeteners is a great way to make them last longer as well as get the sweet taste that I’m looking for. With Stevia, if you put too much, sometimes it can make desserts/drinks taste bitter. I encourage you to experiment with different sweeteners and find your favorite! Here is a THM Sweetener Conversion Chart that I use all the time! Feel free to download it and save it to your phone or computer for future use! So back to xylitol, please take note that it is toxic to doggies, so be careful if you have a furry friend around. 🙂 Hope this helps!
