Are you worried you will not be the perfect bride or groom on that most special of days? You want to look your absolute best on the day that marks the beginning of a wonderful relationship with that perfect person. Well, the good news is that you can lose 10 – 20 pounds of fat and keep it off by following a 2 – 4 week plan that has worked for many other blushing brides and gorgeous grooms.
A Few Weeks Before The Big Day
If you are lucky enough to have one month or more to slim down for your wedding day, you will be amazed at what a little planning can do for you. A few weeks before your wedding day, start preparing your own meals. Avoid fast food, butters, oil and mayonnaise. But do not forget that starvation only works short term, and is unhealthy.
You are going to be running around spending energy planning and rehearsing, etc., so make sure you get carbs and calories in a decent but sensible amount.
Two Weeks To Go
“How can I lose ten pounds for my wedding day if I am 2 weeks away?” you ask.
This is easier than you think. At each meal eat some high-starch foods like bread, potatoes and rice. These foods provide the good sugar glucose, which releases energy and helps you burn fat. Just make sure you use sensible portions, and remember, many small meals is much better than one or two large ones.
Also, eat a lot of fiber rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole wheats, oats, whole grain rice, etc. Fiber is bulky and helps you feel fuller quicker. Fiber also helps clean out your body, pulling fats with it.
The Day Before The Day
No caffeine after 5 pm, no more than 2 alcoholic beverages, and moderate exercise. Take a brisk walk, but not more than you are used to. And you are going to be anxious enough without extra coffee nerves, so minimum coffee and tea. Make sure that you pack some healthy food and water for the period between your wedding and the reception. The last thing you want is to pig out at the reception because you are starving.
The Big Day
Eat a good breakfast; cereal and milk with some juice and an ounce of cheese. If you are a coffee drinker, have a cup, and do not try to skip coffee today. Coffee withdrawal provides a nasty headache, and this is not the day for it. Peanut butter or ham on toast will give you enough energy to make it to lunch. When you feel like nibbling, eat some of those snacks and sandwiches you packed last night, carrot sticks, cheese and crackers, etc. And stay hydrated, drinking plenty of water and juice.
Woo-Hoo! You have done it. You dropped the weight, feel great, and can enjoy your special day to the fullest. Now you can look in the mirror and say, “I knew I could lose ten pounds for my wedding day!”
