Yes, You Need to Keep Eating

You know that whole way-to-his-heart-through-his-stomach adage? The same goes for you, girl: Feed yourself well during this potentially nutty time, and we promise your relationship with yourself will be better, i.e., you'll remember your current last name -- not to mention your rapport with your partner, your boss, your poor tailor, etc.

Whether or not you decide to start a new workout routine (or amp up your existing one), the amount of extra running around you'll be doing requires some serious fuel. Here are some easy guides to eating well while planning a wedding:


"Not eating enough can sabotage your weight-loss efforts just as much as overeating can," adds Bode. "When you don't eat enough, your body begins holding on to all the calories you consume and turns them into fat. So, even if you lose weight on a starvation diet, you won't look good because the lack of nutrition will diminish your muscle mass while increasing your fat storage!" And, Bode says, consider the type of calories you consume. High sugar and high fat -- typical fast food characteristics -- will make losing weight more difficult and also make you feel sluggish. "If you just can't find the time for home cooking, head to a healthy grocery store and pick up frozen food meals that aren't drowning in chemicals and preservatives. Also, buy some healthy snacks that are portable for taking with you on-the-go."

I've been on many weightloss plans, and none have worked well. I am now on Jon Gabriel's Method, and have lost 40 lbs. in 2 months. The best program. See for yourself

Two months ago a good friend of mine recommended me a book about how to burn fat without following starving diets, by only changing foods and eating habits without needing excessive exercises. I followed the advices in the book and you would not believe I lost 15 lbs by eating normally but changing only what I need. I am very satisfied with the book and recommend to you as well.
