Lose Weight For Your Wedding

Posted Jan 21 2010 5:34pm


With a quick look over at the calender it dawns on you that your wedding date is just around the corner and in order to fit into that dress you need to lose weight. The good news is that there are ways to drop a few pounds over the next couple of weeks that will not become a major pain in the butt. During this article we will explore the lose weight quick strategy so you will be ready for your big day.

Right off the bat the first thing that you need to do is take a hard look at your diet and make a list of items that have to go. Substituting water with soda does not sound like much on paper but in reality the average pop can is worth a couple of hundred calories each time you drink one. Since we are limited to the amount of time available for the most part all restaurants are off the list as we need to know exactly how many calories that are being consumed for every item that goes into your mouth. I know that this sounds terrible and it is not something that I would recommend for a long term diet but in order to drop those extra pounds some sacrifices are going to have to be made.

Now everyone knows that in order to lose weight the basic principle is to consume less calories than you consume and the best way to do this is through exercise. If you want you can go pay for a gym membership for the month or you can concentrate on a exercise program at home based around the concept of high intensity. The high intensity exercise program only takes half an hour to complete including a warm up and a cool down period. The high intensity program works like this:

Warm-up for 3-4 minutes at a fast walk or light jog

Interval 1 - run at 8.0 mi/hr for 1 minute

Interval 2 - walk at 4.0 mi/hr for 1.5 minutes

Interval 3 - run at 10.0 mi/hr for 1 minute

Interval 4 - walk at 4.0 mi/hr for 1.5 minutes

Running is the key exercise in the example but if you are like me and have knees that should be on an eighty year old than running can be placed with any form of exercise that you are able to go full at it like cycling, rowing or even Nintendo Wii. Due to the type of impact this program will have on your body the results come very quickly. Aim for four times a week and you should be set.

I learned about the high intensity exercise program from the people behind The Truth About Abs and they include a number of exercises that are laser specific when it comes to fat loss centered around a given body part. This best selling weight loss program also has tons of diet advice and ideas that will make your weight loss fast and efficient and get you ready for your wedding.
