Wedding Weight Loss

1 May

Yesterday I was at one of my good friend’s bridal showers and a few of the bridesmaids asked me how to lose 5  pounds in a week.  The bridesmaids dresses we will be wearing on Saturday are very form fitting so any extra baggage will be completely obvious.  That being said, 5 pounds more or under can make a pretty significant difference for someone weighing 125 pounds.

I usually recommend losing 1-2 pounds a week for people looking for long term weight loss.  If someone loses 5 or more pounds in a week and is of a normal weight, they are most likely losing water and very likely to gain the weight back.  That being said, if you are desperate to lose a few pounds before a big event, here are my wedding weight crasher secrets.

My Weight Loss Coach

1.  Don’t eat carbs after 7pm.

2.  Avoid sugar like a plague.

3.  Forfeit bread, pasta, cookies, and any other starchy carbs.

4.  Drink a gallon of water a day.

5.  Fill up on veggies and protein.

6.  Eat salads with vinegar.  Forgo fatty dressings, cheese, and croutons.

7.  Avoid soup.  It’s loaded with sodium which will cause you to retain water and appear puffy.

8.  Avoid carbonated drinks, gum, and broccoli.  This will cause you to be gassy and bloated.

9.  Exercise an hour a day.  Sweat it out with intervals.

10.  Record everything for the week and review each day to keep you motivated.
