Proven Ways to Lose Weight Before Your Wedding

Looking your best on your wedding day is not as hard as you may think. Here are some helpful suggestions to help you look your best.

Walk briskly around the block once in the morning and again at night. You will burn an additional 200-300 calories each day.

Each twice as many fresh fruits and vegetables, than you eat on most days. Have a salad before lunch and dinner. If a salad at lunch is not possible, put chopped carrots, broccoli and cauliflower in a container to take to work. A great low calorie dip is KRAFT FREE Fat Free Ranch Dressing, at 48 calories in a 2 tablespoon serving.

Substitute oatmeal or whole grain cereal for dinner three nights a week. Eat whole grain bread, rice and pasta. Complex carbohydrates are filling, and full of fiber and other nutrients.

Drink a cup of hot green tea before each meal. It will help suppress your appetite, and the antioxidants will help fight viruses, slow aging, lower blood pressure, and blood sugar.

Try to eliminate cookies, pies, doughnuts, cake and ice cream, if possible.

Avoid fast food restaurants. If you must, treat yourself to a regular portion of fries, at 210 calories. When dining out, make a salad your dinner meal. Items to avoid at salad bars are croutons, bacon bits, creamy dressings, and salads made with mayonnaise.

When you're alone, put on your favorite music and dance. If you are having fun, you will do it much longer, and with more intensity than your normal workout. A woman weighing 123 pounds doing low impact aerobic dancing will burn approximately 240 calories in 30 minutes. The same woman will burn 282 calories for high impact aerobic dancing for 30 minutes.

Switch plates. Eat your dinner on a salad sized plate, and your salad on a dinner plate. If you absolutely must have ice cream, try serving it in a small desert bowl instead of a cereal bowl.

Cut back drastically on these food items:

Bacon

Butter

Cream cheese

Margarine

Mayonnaise

Salad dressing

Shortening

Sour Cream

Vegetable Oil
