So, you have been asked by your best friend to assist her as she is walking down the aisle. That’s definitely a token of friendship that is worth your appreciation. Obviously, that also means a lot of duties and responsibilities, but you know that your friend would have done the same thing for you. Not to mention that you are simply going to be happy for her. However, this joy is sometimes spoiled by that everlasting spare tire that you cannot get rid of. Normally, you’ve just gotten used to it. But now that you are going to be very close of a center of attention during a wedding, you make yourself a promise that you will lose weight, no matter what. So, what’s the plan?
Let’s start with a proper mindset. That’s a prerequisite for every kind of success in life. The wedding is going to take place in a relatively far future so you have a lot of time at your disposal. That is why forget about crash diets. They are ineffective and extremely dangerous to your health, no need to torture yourself. Instead, you have to focus on changing wrong eating habits gradually. Here is an example of such a plan. Just remember to introduce new phases gradually, not all at once.
You should begin your diet adventure with recognizing and eradicating wrong eating habits. You surely know what I’m talking about, but here are some of the examples: eating at late hours and shortly before bedtime, skipping the most crucial meals such as breakfasts, getting fast-foods instead of a healthy dose of poultry, etc. If you ever hope to succeed you have to make that effort. The next stage is the introduction of a new eating schedule. The majority of people eat three big meals daily: breakfast, dinner, and supper. If you’re one of them, you need to change it into breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon snack, and supper. It’s is much better to eat more often and in smaller quantities, because your stomach deals with small meals more easily. Finally, you have to study a food pyramid and introduce more healthy foods into your diet. It may be difficult, but if you don’t do it, you can forget about this wonderful bridesmaid dress you have seen.
In a nutshell, take your time. Learn to be patient and strong in your commitments. If you manage to introduce all of these phases, and if you happen to introduce some physical activities as well, then the results are going to positively surprise you.
