The first step is to evaluate your body type especially in regards to the style of the bridesmaid dress. If it is sleek or form fitting, then you will naturally want to spend energy on toning your tummy and bottom. If the dress is backless and sleeveless, you’ll want to address the tone of the back and arms. Perhaps the dress is also short rather then a formal length. In this case you will want to do some leg toning as well.
Next, take a look at your body weight. Be as objective and reasonable as possible; keeping your your weight loss goals attainable. Most weight loss advice, doctors or sites will recommend that a person not try to lose more than one to two pounds of weight per week. This can be attained in lots of different ways depending on your eating style, preferences and goals. If you have three months and only need to lose about ten pounds, then you will most likely just need to cut back a little on food portions each day.
However, if you have a little longer before the big day, but need to lose more like 30 pounds, you may want to be a little more aggressive. For a breakfast alternative that will pack a healthy, nutrient dense punch, blend together: chopped fresh spinach leaves, a banana, a handful of frozen fruit, protein powder of choice, dash of flax seed oil and organic juice to taste and consistency. This will replace less healthy breakfast choices and give a good fiber boost.
Drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day, take a multivitamin and give up processed foods and sugar. Choose lean meats, lots of veggies and fresh fruits instead of fast foods. Some experts will recommend about five small meals throughout the day. These basic food and toning ideas should nicely answer the question of how to fit into your dream bridesmaid dress.
