Need to lose a little weight in a pinch? We’ve all been there! Whether it’s losing a little extra “love” on your love handles before beach season or slimming down to fit into a fabulous dress for a wedding, these tips are a sure fire way to have you looking your best for any occasion.
Make Water Your Best Friend
Guilty as charged! There’s nothing more refreshing than a nice, fizzy bottle of diet soda during the day. While it may be calorie free, it cannot compare to the benefits that water can offer you. Sipping on water instead of your favorite drink will act as the perfect detox system while curbing your cravings for snacks throughout the day.
Still looking for a little carbonation? There are several brands of sparkling water that offer the same benefits and add a splash of flavor to make things more appealing.
Advice from the Birds
Our cute flying friends can teach us a thing or two when it comes to losing and maintaining a gorgeous appearance. Instead of eating three big meals a day, try to eat four to six small meals instead. An apple here, a granola bar there, and a few peanuts can go a long way in helping you reach your post event goals. Best of all, these are things you can easily carry with you.
Cut Out The Alcohol
It sounds like a sick joke, right? Who doesn’t enjoy a relaxing drink at the end of a stressful day, or any day for that matter? Unfortunately, all of those drinks are a ton of empty calories. It’s easier said than done, but try to abstain from drinking until the big day arrives. It will all be worthwhile when you can fit into your wedding dress for that special occasion.
Getting Your Nutrients
It isn’t a secret, any of us would choose a cheesecake over celery sticks and carrots. However, fruits and veggies give us the vitamins and minerals we need to beat those indulgent cravings for sweets. Plus, they’ll have you feeling full without raising the calorie count, all while helping you with the “eat like a bird” thing. It’s a win-win situation.
Stay in Motion
All that running around in day should be enough activity for us, right? Right? Well, not exactly. Nothing helps us lose weight more than exercise, obviously, but you don’t have to start a rigorous workout regimen to reach your goal either. Simple choices like taking the stairs instead of an elevator or parking farther away from the store to get a quick walk in can help you reach your goal.
The Right Outfit
Everyone knows that black is a slimming color, but you don’t have to go with the little black dress to look skinnier. Deep purples, dark reds, navy blue, maroon, and chocolatey brown will all give you the effect you’re looking for while making you look absolutely stunning.
Follow these tips and you’ll be red carpet ready for any occasion.
