With the recent rounds of state as well as global lockdowns, we have been unable to travel to see family and friends.
That has led to a lot of sitting on the sofa with streaming services and the contents of our refrigerators for company. And we all know that means; weight gain.
When a wedding – or any special occasion- is on the horizon, a smart wedding weight loss plan will hep you drop extra weight and slim down a dress size the sensible, considered way.
Clean, healthy food, portion control, meditation and plenty of walking as well as a balanced lifestyle is the way to go.
Keep it Clean, Quick And Simple:
Many weight loss plans are complicated and hard to stick to. If you are the bride or part of the wedding, this can be a hectic time. Create a meal planner, so you know what you are eating each day and plan ahead.
Eliminate all carbs, which includes alcohol and white food (eg: pasta, flour, rice) as well as all drinks except water, tea and coffee.
Eat protein every day, in the form of egg whites, and low fat meats and fish as well as vegetables, and loads of water (double what you are drinking now).
Eliminate as many sauces (often high in sugar) as possible.
Keep your nutrition preparation simple by using frozen vegetables, portion control in the form of small natural yoghurts or cheeses rather than a big tub or large portions, and eliminate high sugar food from your kitchen.
Choose some healthy snacks (eg a piece of fruit or low calorie elate bar) to take with you on the go so you don’t reach for high calorie foods on the go.
Kicking off a program like this can be a challenge, so give yourself 2 cheat meals a week, where you eat your favourite foods so you don’t feel deprived, but don’t overdo it.
Shop for fresh food as often as you can, especially vegetables and fruit as this will boost your skin’s glow and reduce your appetite for fast food.
Be wary of juice cleanses and other fad diets as they can cause you a lot of stress at this time, and take up a lot of your time too. FitNStyle has a wide array of tips and tricks for dieting. Check them out. I’m sure you’ll see one that will work for you.
