Looking to lose a few pounds before the big day? Here are some of the top “I Do’s” and “Don’ts” according to weight loss expert Ike Blackmon of Creative Bioscience.
Choose a program that works with your busy schedule. No matter how hard you try, there will always be last minute arrangements in the final weeks before your wedding. Find a fool-proof weight loss plan that you can stick to even when things are hectic.
Find some support. Invite your bridesmaids to join you in your weight loss journey. Look for weight loss programs that offer excellent customer care and support via social media. The more support you have, the better your chances for success.
Avoid sugars and starches. Opt for lean proteins and lots of veggies. Save the pasta and dessert for your honeymoon.
Drink LOTS of water. Your body and complexion will thank you for it. Avoid soda. Yes, even diet. If you can’t kick your caffeine habit, opt for coffee.
Don’t starve yourself. Too many brides make this mistake. Your emotions are already running high. A regular, healthy eating schedule will help prevent Bridezilla behavior.
Book healthy venues. The final days leading up to your wedding are full of events centered around big meals – your rehearsal dinner, bridesmaid brunch, dinner with the in-laws and bachelorette party can all prove far too tempting. Select restaurants that offer light, healthy fare and allow you to stick to your weight loss program.
Take a deep breath. Being a bride is stressful. Stress often causes overeating. Just because you have a lot on your plate planning-wise, doesn’t mean you should add more to your dinner plate.
