For anyone, their wedding day is one of the most important occasions of their lives, often planned months in advance to the finest detail to make sure everything goes smoothly. Naturally, everyone involved will want to look their best, but for the bride it is the one thing they will focus on the most.
Slimming down before a wedding is a popular tradition for brides to be, who are more eager than most to jump into some sort of weight loss programme in preparation for before the big day. In some cases, this haste may actually be counterproductive as many try fad diets or even starve themselves in efforts to drop the pounds quickly. Instead, the tried and tested weight loss principles are still the best way to improve your figure:
Eat well, eat smart
Your diet is going to have a huge impact on how much weight you lose, and how quickly you manage to do it. Cutting down on simple carbohydrates such as white rice, bread and pasta are a good place to start, as well as the amount of alcohol you consume (Don’t worry stag nights and hen do’s can be excused!)
Enjoy wholegrain counterparts to your favourite carbs, eat plenty of proteins and vegetables if you need a bit of extra help, using XL-S Medical and adopting a healthy lifestyle can also boost your weight loss efforts.
Keep moving and don’t do it alone!
If you only have a few months until the big day, exercise can be your saviour. Depending on your ability, working out 3-5 times a week can be an intense undertaking, but if you stick with it, you will be amazed at the results. Walk, run, play sports, go swimming anything that gets your heart rate up for half an hour can achieve great results. After all, there’s no better motivator than your wedding day!
But of course the groom should look good too! Losing weight with someone else is often easier than doing it alone. Since you are pledging to spend your lives together, why not get in shape together? In the months leading up to the wedding try to exercise, diet and motivate each other.
