What is your wedding diet?
Posted 19 November 2008 - 02:03 PM
WARNING!! Over this summer I got on a "kick" and for a little over a month I only ate 1200 calories a day and ran almost every day, as well as other exercise. I lost 12 lbs in a month. However, like the dietician told me I would, I put it all back on and then some when I "fell off the wagon"!!! Be careful if you are trying to lose too much weight too fast!

For me, the key has been to take a no-gimmicks approach - eat healthy food, smaller portions, and move more. lol But seriously, the weight has been melting off! I'm down two dress sizes already!

I am doing the same thing except for breakfast I am not doing the shakes but just one egg and a piece of toast. I actually am not wanting to lose a lot of weight but it is just melting off. I am going to the gym doing about a 30 minute workout just to clear my head of everything that is going on. In fact I just finished my last invitation and I am in serious need of letting go of some steam (my mom is helping and it has been a challenge ) ) Anyway to anyone out there that just wants to be healthy it really isn't that hard to choose the salad over the hamburger, all you have to do is put your mind to it.

I'm not one to get all worked up about my 'weight' per sayâ€¦to me the number on the scale isn't the important thing. I find it is much more rewarding to watch my weekly measurements go downâ€¦I avoid scales at all costs! LOL! To be honest, when I'm working out and exercising more it is quite normal for my inches to go down but my weight to go up since I'm putting on lean muscle which is replacing the chub. So for me it is definitely a negative to be basing my diet and exercise regime around the number on the scale. Anyways ~ with that being said, I tried the South Beach Diet out last spring after going on a family vacation with my fianc©'s familyâ€¦his brother had just dropped 20lbs in 2 weeks and looked amazing just by following the diet which completely eliminates all food items high in sugars and most carbs aside from vegetables low in carbs. My Fianc© and I tried it and had similar resultsâ€¦it was easy to do especially in the summer since most meals consist of yummy grilled meats and delicious veggie options, we both shed inches without any exercise! It was crazy!! There are 3 phases to the diet: Phase 1 - where you completely eliminate all sugars and carbs, you are suppose to stay on this phase for a minimum of 2 weeks (I stayed on it for 1 month) Phase 2 - you experiment with foods like complex carbs (whole grain breads & pastas) and fruits and find out what foods your body reacts negatively to and then in Phase 3 - you have the knowledge of what kinds of foods your body needs to maintain a healthy well balanced diet. AND the best part is that of course we're all going to fall off the band wagon once in a while throughout life when things like Thanksgiving, Christmas or a good "Girls Night Out" take place, but it's so easy to just go back to Phase 1 for a week to get back on track againâ€¦ I just bought the book and followed the menu and food guides, but you can check out the website for yourself: http://www.southbeachdiet.com
Not to sound like an infomercialâ€¦but honestly if my Fianc© and I can follow this diet anyone can!! Neither of us had been on a diet regime before and we were both successful! We currently follow Phase 3 with no problem and on occasion drop down to Phase 1 when we have our weak moments. I just got a gym membership to tone up and plan on going back to Phase 1 for a while to see what kind of results I can get for the weddingâ€¦beach body here I come!!
All the best in wedding planning and achieving that beach bod we are all seeking : )

I'm doing sole source on the UK Cambridge Weight plan. This is a VLCD, so hard work but the results are fantastic! Losses are, on average, a stone a month!
