Wedding Weight Loss | The Right Combination Diet
Bride-to-bes are highly motivated to lose weight because they have a deadline to adhere to - their wedding date. But the pressure to lose weight quick can make you choose the wrong type of diet and exercise program that might lose you weight, but not good for the long run.
Crash diets or fad diets that you cannot possibly sustain for the long-term will only ensure that you regain all the weight you lost, once you get off the diet, or even worse, put on more weight.
Research has shown that weight gain has to do with the generation of new fat cells. We are all born with a certain amount of fat cells. But when there is excess fat in our system, new fat cells are formed. Once those fat cells are formed, you cannot simply make those extra fat cells disappear. That's when we become overweight.
To lose weight, you would have to reduce the fat content in the cells. But you never can be rid of those fat cells you had attained - they'll always be there.
What's the lesson in this? Be very careful in selecting a diet plan. Do not be compelled to pick a popular fad diet just because you think you will lose a lot of weight in time for your wedding. Fad diets are not rarely sustainable because they usually advocate unhealthy eating to promote weight loss. So the potential for regaining weight, and putting on more weight is high.
What can you do then?
Start with a proper diet plan that you can upkeep for the rest of your life! Yes, I am serious. If you are on a tight deadline, you may not lose all of the weight you would like in time for your wedding, but you can be assured of losing weight consistently even after your wedding, until you reach your ideal weight.
Start with Having the Most Important Meal of the Day - Breakfast
Breakfast literally means breaking your overnight fast. Remember that it could be at least 10 hours since your last meanl, so it is important to re-fuel your body ready for another day.
Enjoying breakfast can help lift your mood and has been shown to help with improving concentration levels, behavior and learning abilities.
It is important to make the most of your breakfast meal by including highly nutritious foods such as wholegrain cereals, fruits, low fat dairy or fortified soy products and nuts and seeds. Avoid foods high in fat, sugar and salt, in preference for more nutritious foods. People who skip breakfast also generally find it difficult to achieve their daily nutrient requirements, so it's best to start packing in those nutrients early.
So start your right combination diet by eating your breakfast brides-to-be!
