After giving birth, you've gained an amazing blessing, a new identity, and wouldn't change it for the world. But let's be real, motherhood isn't as perfect as that mom blogger's instagram pic!
You can't remember the last time you put yourself first. When you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror, you can barely recognize yourself. You may have stopped buying new clothes and gotten used to wearing the same stretchy pants that are a lot more forgiving than your pre-mom skinny jeans. You'll make sure your kids have a perfectly balanced plate but by the time it's your turn to eat, you might as well eat the scraps off your kids plate because you don't want to waste food! Before you know it, it's 9PM and you haven't sat down to eat a proper meal. The kids are finally asleep and you're exhausted. So you turn to comfort food and some Netflix and before you know it, you're 3 hours into your fave show with too many wrappers you toss away before anyone else sees.
I get it mama, I've been there too. It's really painful to go from being an ambitious go-getter woman to living completely for others and forgetting about yourself in the process. If this is you now, this doesn't have to be you 8 weeks from now.
I want you to finally put yourself first. Not in a selfish way, but in a way that will allow you to be healthier and happier for you AND your family. I want you to be able to have healthy meals but not cook separately for yourself (because let's be real - ain't nobody got time for that!). I want you to love your body, for what it is now, and what it will transform into in the coming weeks. And hey girl, if you want, I want you to buy yourself at least one new mama outfit you look and feel fabulous in!
(Yep that's me, I gained 50 pounds during pregnancy and lost it all without feeling miserable!)

Success Stories from Mothers Like You
"I grew up making horrible food choices that led to life-long obesity and the feeling of being trapped in my body. Every time I’d try to ‘eat clean,’ I’d give up after a couple of weeks and revert to my bad eating habits. After my second child I was determined to turn my life around and I knew I needed the accountability and expertise of a nutritionist or dietitian. Nazima provided some great meal options that I have grown to LOVE. I loved that I was accountable to her for my eating and that’s just the push I needed to get myself on track. I was never a salad/vegetable eater and never enjoyed them yet she chose some great recipes that I continue to enjoy everyday. For once in my life I finally feel like I can enjoy clean eating and I rarely crave sugar. I love how my experience with her helped change my attitude towards food. I’m no longer eating clean and exercising because I hate my body but rather, because I love it. I feel like this is the mental shift I needed to make a long term change and I’m grateful to Nazima for helping me realize this!"

"My husband was actually the person who heard about Nazima and encouraged me to contact her. I was very very skeptical and it took me many weeks and a lot of reminders from my husband to finally make the call. When I first spoke to Nazima, I was a bit taken aback. She was like a breath of fresh air. If there was anyone who could help lose weight it was her.
Just a bit of background on my weight issues. I was never a size zero or even close but after my two back to back pregnancies, I had gained quite a bit of weight. Apart from that, I had lost all hope that I could lose even a few pounds. I was convinced that this weight is here to stay and this is my life now. However, Nazima helped me recognize my own potential and through her meal plans and one on one support we were able to see progress. What Nazima offers is not a quick fix weight loss fad diet. It's a complete lifestyle transformation. It takes time and effort. All the meals we prepare are thoughtfully put together. After some practice, I learned to plan faster and prepare meals more efficiently. Nazima educated me on proper nutrition and portion sizes. After working with Nazima for 3 months or so I was able to shed quite a bit of weight. It's all about continuing to make healthy choices. Up to date, both my husband and I have lost 30+ pound and too many inches to count. Taking a chance with Nazima was one of the best decisions I have made. I am grateful to Allah to have found her. she helped me and my husband get our lives back on track and gave us hope."

I am a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist dedicated to helping Muslim women live healthier and happier lives. I am a wife and mom to two beautiful girls under 3 who love food just as much as I do! After becoming a mom myself, I truly understood the challenges that come with being a mom and how much more complicated it is to live a healthy lifestyle. I'm so excited to finally create a program that meets the needs of Muslim moms so that they can finally put themselves first, inshallah!
“Prior to starting to work with Nazima, I was six months post-partum and struggling to shed those last 13 pounds (out of a total 50 gained during pregnancy). Trying to be realistic with weight loss and fitting into my pre-pregnancy weight clothing, I ate healthily during the day, but when supper came around and hubby on the way home, we’d often indulge in huge take-out dishes. I often fet bloated and quite guilty for not being smart about planning my meals and preparing for the nightly dig-ins. That’s when I happened to bump into Nazima’s online post about how she lost her pregnancy weight by managing her diet and while maintaining milk supply, which was a huge concern to me. Since working with Nazima (three weeks and counting), I have already cut down a pant size and noticed my clothing fitting better. I often felt overwhelmed with what to cook, especially for a full family. Nazima walks me through each menu item in the weekly planner, and we cater them to my needs, altering some ingredients for a baby with a milk protein allergy. I absolutely love working with her and feel I’ve gained a friend rather than strictly working with a dietitian."

“I first started out with Nazima by joining her program. My initial goal was weight loss. I have been stuck with some extra pounds after my back to back pregnancies and tried so many “diets” that would shed a few pounds, but then I’d gain them right back. I needed a change, so I joined the program to try something different. Right away I could see that the way Nazima’s program was not “another diet program”, but more of a total change towards a healthy lifestyle.
Nazima is a gem of a person and has so much knowledge. Her recipes are simple and delicious and don’t require much time to prep or cook (which is a plus when you have 3 kids). I’ve learned so much about meal planning and prepping which has made a huge difference in making healthier choices for myself. My results have been both physical and mental. Along with seeing myself lose weight as well as inches, I am more amazed at how my mindset has changed. I’m not even as concerned about losing weight anymore because I’m overall feeling good and happy with how I think about food. I don’t feel I’m on a diet at all because I’m not. I actually crave veggies now! I don’t have to count calories or worry about off limit foods, and I’m more mindful of what I eat. I have more energy now to keep up with my kids. Nazima has totally worked wonders and changed my mindset! She makes it all so simple and gives the support you need along the way.
I also noticed that with my mindset change I’ve also been more mindful about what my kids are eating. It really is true that if we eat healthy our kids will also adopt those good habits early on. Now I make sure they also have some veggies and a balanced meal at each meal.
I can’t thank Nazima enough for all her guidance, encouragement, support, and genuineness. It’s an absolutely worthwhile investment to work with a knowledgeable and caring Nutritionist for anyone who cares about their long term health."

"I had my third baby in December and I’ve gained a lot of weight ever since my first pregnancy, I just really wanted to lose weight but those Google diets that I used to try just wouldn’t last longer than a week. Nazima has the best recipes, they’re full of flavour and aren’t bland. She includes great tips and shows you how to meal plan (which is literally a life saver with three kids). I lost 10 pounds the first month which is crazy! Because I’ve never lost more than two pounds with other diets that I attempted. The meal plan doesn’t have a diet approach. You’re still having all your meals and snacks too! I actually ate more when I was on the meal plan compared to before, but I’m eating right. I’m eating what my body needs. I don’t even want to start on how much this has increased my energy levels and I need all the energy possible with having three kids back to back! The best part is that following this did not affect my breast milk at all, I actually even feel like my milk has increased! This meal plan disciplined me with my food choices, I believe I will reach my goal sooner than I thought."
