Time. It is first and foremost a matter of time. If you only put down the bag of crisps and remote control two weeks before the big day and start an intense fit-for-wedding boot camp (no food and lots of training), it will very likely backfire. You will look like a bride who has had the weight ripped from her body, and your energy level will probably be non-existent. You will therefore need to start early, at least six months before your wedding. You can start by consulting a personal trainer to get structure and guidelines for your training and diet.
Organising a wedding can be a full-time job. You slowly drown yourself in to-do lists and things you just have to fit in. And then you start skipping a training session, and then a meal. You should therefore plan your meals and training every evening. In the evening, you can prepare the (healthy) meals for the next day – it may be left-overs from dinner, a to-go juice or a protein smoothie. Also enter your training sessions in your calendar in such good time that other plans do not get in the way.
It is a classic mistake to underestimate the importance of your diet when you try to lose weight. Create the optimum conditions for your training and weight loss by consuming 1) a lot of protein, 2) plant oil, 3) fish and 4) vitamin B. Protein increases muscle mass and thus your calorie metabolism. Plant oils with a high content of unsaturated fat stimulate your fat burning. Fish strengthens your metabolism, while vitamin B boosts the fat burning in your intestines.
