Wedding Weight Loss | The Right Combination Diet

Eat Right To Lose Weight

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!

That’s a great article. Keep sharing such posts. Got married at indoor DC wedding venues. For my day I wanted a fair bride look so I too worked hard to lose weight. Followed fitness guidelines strictly and that helped me to achieve my desired look. Everyone appreciated my looks.

I know I have said somewhere on my blog that fat people bother me because the extra weight they carry, to me, signifies a lack of control over their lives. But contrary to what some people imagine, I am not at all against or discriminatory against fat people. In fact, a really good friend of mine from my schooling days has been obese all her life. But that has not stopped me from being a good friend to her! Even if I wished she was thinner (ie visibly more in charge of her life), it is the person she is inside that matters more to me.

Still, it was a wonderful day indeed when she called me and told me about this online program, Fat Loss 4 Idiots, which she has been on. She has been on a secret mission to lose all that extra weight and she was actually making it happen this time. The reason why she did not tell me about her plans was that she has tried multiple online programs such as Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig, and she had failed. Not this time. And the proof was in the photos she sent me - she looked so much slimmer. She told me that she has lost 30 pounds in 30 days!

Amazing! I don't usually buy into all of these weight loss gimmicks - I believe in hard work and proper diet. But then again, I have been trying to lose my extra 5 pounds for ages by pounding away at the gym for 1 hour, three times a week, and not seeing any real difference. So my friend's recent photos of her slimmer self was the motivating factor.

I got myself into the program - and I recommend it! The site itself is cool - attractive colourful cartoons, and it explains things in an easy to understand manner reminiscent of the XX for Dummies book series. But there is nothing idiotic about the subject matter.

Actually, this program may be more beneficial to those of us trying to lose some weight rather than for the grossly overweight - the program targets 9 pounds in 11 days, and focuses on the food we eat rather than exercise. Those who have to lose a lot of weight should incorporate exercise routines as well, but that is not the focus here. Nevertheless, it does contain valuable information on food intake, which the grossly overweight could use. For the rest of us, sometimes it is changing what we eat rather than those extra hours at the gym that will help us lose that tough bit of extra pounds we need to.

Excerpt of the type of information proposed in the program:

"You are overweight for the most simple of reasons -- because you're eating the wrong foods, the wrong types of calories per meal, and you're also eating meals in the wrong patterns each day. Think closely about what we're about to tell you, since it's going to change the way you think about dieting. FOOD is more powerful than any prescription weight loss pills, because the FOOD that you eat can either make you THIN or FAT. You don't get fat because of a lack of exercising, that's a myth. You get fat because you don't eat the right foods at the right intervals each day. Also, the pattern that you choose to eat your meals each day is more powerful than any prescription weight loss pills. This is true because your body is like an "engine" and it only needs certain foods at certain intervals each day, and if you don't eat the right foods at the right times then it won't burn those calories -- and you'll wind up storing those calories as fat tissue. (Hint: You need to eat more than 3 times per day to lose weight, but we'll show you the details later).You have gotten overweight by eating the wrong foods, that much is a fact. And guess what? You can get SLIM by eating the RIGHT FOODS at the RIGHT INTERVALS each day. It's not really any more complicated than that, and the way to start losing weight has nothing to do with starving yourself or jogging ".

And I liked their list of Top Fat Burning Foods! Not bad at all :)
