Walk down the aisle looking and feeling great

From weight loss hypnotherapy to intermittent fasting, finding the right dieting method will help you to lose weight and feel great on your wedding day.

Everyone wants to look and feel their best on their wedding day, and for many people this means shaping up and losing any excess weight. If you’re looking to shed the pounds in time for your big day, these dieting methods may help you to achieve your weight loss goals.

Get active

Losing weight requires burning more calories than you consume, so upping your activity levels is key to helping you shed the pounds. This doesn’t have to mean pounding the pavements every night (unless you want to of course); start out slow and increase the intensity as your fitness and confidence levels increase. Not only will regular exercise aid your weight loss, it will also help you to tone up, and get stronger, fitter and healthier – so it’s a win-win all round.

Count the calories

Combining exercise with a calorie-controlled diet is a tried and tested way of losing weight but try not to be too restrictive as this can often result in you falling off the dieting wagon altogether. Instead, follow a healthy but tasty diet that is full of fresh fruit and vegetables, wholegrains, and lean protein. Having a source of support can really help you to stick to a diet, so, if you’re finding it difficult, you might want to try joining a slimming club or roping in your spouse-to-be.

Intermittent fasting

Another dieting method that has sprung up in recent years is intermittent fasting. There are a few different variations, but the most popular seems to be the 5:2 diet, which involves eating normally for five days of the week and consuming just 25% of your normal calorie intake (500 for women, 600 for men) on the remaining two days. It can be quite an effective dieting tool, enabling you to lose weight quickly as well as potentially offering additional health benefits. However, while this may be great for a quick fix, you may well find the weight creeping back on once the wedding is over and you return to your usual eating habits.

Weight loss hypnotherapy

Having said all that, conventional weight loss methods don’t always work for everyone – particularly if you’re looking to see fast results in time for your wedding day. If this rings true for you and you find yourself struggling to reach your goal weight, you may want to consider trying hypnotherapy for weight loss.

By delivering talking therapies and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy alongside traditional hypnosis and visualisation techniques, this type of hypnotherapy offers a holistic approach to weight loss, examining your relationship with food and enabling you to identify and address any underlying issues that may be preventing you from losing weight.

When combined with nutrition and diet advice, this approach allows for meaningful weight loss and a permanent lifestyle change, enabling you to keep your wedding body long after the celebrations are over.

When it comes to losing weight for your wedding, there is no one size fits all – you need to find the dieting method that works best for you. And with a bit of willpower and some sensible life choices you’ll soon find yourself walking down the aisle looking, and feeling, a million dollars.
