Slimming Down for the Gown:

When the "big day" comes you want to be slim and mostly that happens in a hurry. You realize 6 weeks before the wedding that the big day is approaching and how do I get this weight off FAST? Well there's nothing like an impending deadline to get you started down the road to weight loss.

First focus on the good not the bad. You can get yourself sick if you just go on nothing and your body will go into starvation mode and you may in fact, gain weight. A smart nutrition plan is about finding more foods that you can eat and making good choices.

Never let yourself get hungry. It is better to eat 6 little meals a day that to just have one. Also don't forget how important small portions of protein are to your well being. You will feel full and not want to pick all of the time. Remember this is about burning fat and it take fuel to do that.

Pay attention to the 12 food groups....almonds and other nuts, legumes and beans, spinach and other greens and veggies. Dairy, instant oatmeal, eggs and turkey and other lean meats, whole grain breads and cereals, and extra protein when you feel hungry.

Cut back on the baddies. Don't forget that there are some trans fats that are good for your direct like avocados, nuts and other natural sources.

Whatever you do keep a positive attitude and exercise as much as possible. Start this the year before your wedding and you will have no problem loosing whatever amount of weight you need to loose to fit perfectly into that beautiful gown for the "big day".
