Family Fitness Funhouse with Mark and Hunter Macdonald


It’s no secret that once kids enter the picture, a parent’s waist line begins to expand. New studies show that parents gain 10-15 pounds within the first year and every year after that, a natural increase of 3-4 pounds. I was the perfect example of this, gaining 35 lbs in the first two years after Hunter was born. The great news is there are real solutions to dropping those excess pounds and getting your pre-baby body back. This was exactly the theme of my segment this week on the HallMark Channels, Home and Family show. We dove into how to make your health realistically happen as a busy parent and ignite your metabolism by living the plan and using the strategies featured in our bestselling book, Why Kids Make You Fat …and How To Get Your Body Back.
