Getting to the Ideal Weight
Every bride-to-be or groom to-be wants to look their best on the BIG day. You may feel conscious about your diet, lifestyle, posture months prior to the event, especially for the ladies, who may need to do a number of fittings on their wedding gowns prior to the big day.
So what are the safe, quick ways to maintain or lose weight?
Good news is that you most likely do not need to starve yourself to look pretty on the big day. There are many ways to stay pretty and slim on your big day!
Here are some pointers to help you achieve the desired weight:
A low calorie diet
Lowering your calories intake in your diet will help to lose weight.
One of my girlfriends recently told me that she is going on a no carbohydrates diet and the results are simply amazing! She lost about 2 kg in a week.
Discipline, Perseverance and Patience are the key the results might vary according to the body constitution of the individual.
Do not starve yourself or you might put yourself at risk in losing muscles instead.
Increase your protein intake
Protein helps to build muscles and increases the metabolism rate. So eat more healthy meat such as fish.
The way the dish is prepared can also affect the level of calories, so do opt for the light or steamed dishes when you dine out at the restaurant or when you prepare food at home.
Eat more frequently but at small doses
When you eat more frequently and in small portions, you can achieve weight loss.
Amazing? The food intake is still the same, just that you space them out in perhaps, at every 3 hours intervals.
Drink Hot Water
Surprisingly, by drinking hot water, the metabolism rate is increased and calories are burnt off faster. Perhaps that might be the secrets of some slim people who don’t drink cold water often.
Exercise regularly. Do cardio exercises to increase the fat burning rate. Of course you would also need to do some toning exercises to shape the body to a nice shape to fit into the wedding dress or wedding suit! You can try to opt for yoga or some kick boxing exercises.
Reduce alcoholic intake, drink more water
There are calories in alcoholic drinks. So do cut on the intake. Water helps to curb appetite, so you can increase the daily intake.
Lastly plan a weight loss regime and get your family or close friends to monitor and remind you to keep to it. It has been shown that peer help and encouragement can help an individual achieve the desired results.
This little fruit from Southeast Asia has gained popularity online as the miracle solution to weight loss. The fruit contains an active ingredient – hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which helps in fat burning and reduce appetite.
Reviews have been mixed on the effectiveness of the fruit but there have been a number of reports on some celebrities who had used the product and obtained the desired weight loss results.
However do beware of those online scams who may coerce you into getting the product by setting a limit on the quantity that is available. As a word of caution, always consult your doctor before taking any supplement.
