With all the pressure of preparing and planning for your wedding, the last thing you need to think about is your weight! Every girl's nightmare is to gain weight before her wedding.
With all the anxiety and stress you are under, we do not need to look pale or sick while trying to lose weight or maintaining your current one. So here are a few tips for you to follow that will help you drop at least a dress size before your wedding day:
Don’t wait till last minute to start looking fit. Your body needs time to show the progress you are making. Start your diet plan at least ??? before your wedding.
It always helps to know how much you eat and the amount of calories going into your body. This specific technique is used by "weight watchers", one of the most popular weight loss programs around the world. You can use an online calorie calculator or keep a journal.
Eat Your Vegetables:
Vegetables are an easy way to trick your body into feeling full; they are low in calories and also good for you. You can munch on vegetables all day and add them to your meals to make you feel less hungry.
Drink Enough Water:
We can't stress enough on how drinking at least 8 glasses of water is important for your health. Besides having great benefits on your skin and complexion, it also helps curb your hunger and cravings throughout the day.
If you have enough free time, start going to the gym, signup for a fun class or get a personal trainer and work out at least 3 times a week.
Try taking long walks. No need to jog or run, walking for one hour is a great way to keep fit, burn calories, and keep your heart healthy.
If you don’t have time for the gym or long walks, then start adapting yourself to a new lifestyle. Stay active throughout the day by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or park your car a few minutes away from the place you are going to and walk.
But most importantly, don’t injure yourself by exaggerating. Moderation is key always.
Make Time For Breakfast:
Never skip your breakfast. Studies show that people who skip breakfast are much more likely to be overweight than those who don't. Having a healthy hearty breakfast will prevent you from eating more during the day, and will keep you full for a long period of time.
Have a break once a week to eat whatever you want, just so you won't get bored of your diet. Don’t worry you will not gain weight in one day, your body has been burning calories and eating healthy for the past couple of days that eating what you love on this day will not harm you. Make sure, however, that you get back to your plan the next day.
