Everyone wants to look their best on a wedding day - the bride, the groom, and the guests. But, what if your suit or a dress doesn’t fit you the way you wanted? Did you gain some extra weight? You should have thought about it earlier, but there still may be a solution to your problem. Yes, it is a diet and yes, if you play by the rules, you will be in ship-shape condition by the time the big day arrives.
Depending on how much time you have until the wedding, you can choose a Five-day or a One-month plan. The Five-day plan can help you lose some 5 lb (around 2.5 kg) and will help you get rid of your swollen ankles and bloating. The One-month plan can shape you up by helping you lose 11 lb (almost 5 kg). You will feel and look better afterward.
What to eat?
Whichever plan you choose to follow, the most important thing is to minimize your daily input of salt. The usual amount that an average person takes is around 9 g a day. If you could reduce this amount to some 3 g a day, you may lose up to a 1.5 litres of excessive fluid, often concentrated around hands and ankles and weighing between 2-3 lb (around 1-1.5 kg). Following these plans will require the increase of your daily consumption of fruits and vegetables. They will do well for your kidneys, which are the biggest ally you will have in getting rid of all that salt from your body.
Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamin C and they are full of various super nutrients, which will affect your circulation and your skin. Eat berries, broccoli, mange-tout, shellfish, fish, and nuts. Grapefruit is especially good. Eat one before you have breakfast. Many studies indicate that grapefruit eaters lose more weight. Eggs are rich in proteins and if you put them on your breakfast menu, you will eat 400 calories less a day, because protein is a natural appetite suppressant.
Lunches are to be simple. Dinners should be rich in proteins and they should be nutritious. Eat a steak, eggs, or poultry. Fish is also full of proteins and chili will speed up your metabolism. It is important to eat slowly. This will decrease the amount of the swallowed air, which causes bloating. Avoid chewing gum and fizzy drinks as well as the food that causes unwanted gas in your stomach, such as cabbage, for example.
Be sure to follow the rules and you will definitely look good by the time the big day comes. Before you say ‘yes’ to your partner, say ‘yes’ to a healthier way of life.
