Owner and Personal Trainer of Fitness Together, Bronxville, New York provides what should be done while planning a wedding and tackle that wedding anxiety weight gain for that dress fitting to go right.
As a trainer I often meet brides (to be) most of which are seeking a transformation which includes weight loss and toning. Unfortunately the old mentality of starvation still seems to remain the default setting. Starvation, for reasons of stress or as a means of weight loss is bad. When the body is starved its metabolic rate drops (you burn less calories) and the result is fat storage and muscle loss (a flabby body). If you are seeking a leaner more muscular look feed the muscle by eating 3 meals and 2 to 3 snacks that include protein daily. Never allow more than 3 hours between snacks or meals and always include a fruit or vegetable with each meal or snack.
More people choose diet over exercise when given a choice of one or the other and although intake is about 80% of your weight loss only exercise can build muscle. Exercise is also very helpful in relieving stress and can be therapeutic in promoting healthy sleeping patterns which can be a problem for anyone planning a wedding. Joining a gym is a good start if you have a fairly extensive training history and can challenge yourself without injuring yourself. If you really want to step up your game hire an expert, seek the services of a personal trainer.
This can be the difference between success and failure. If you are not eating regularly you will find that you are moody experience headaches and have a shorter attention span. Furthermore the time for your body to actually build muscle is at night. In the gym you actually break and tear the muscle then you eat to supply the needed building blocks and then you rest to allow your body to create muscle density through repair of the ruptures created in the gym. Be sure to get 7 to 8 hours every night and you will look sharp be more alert and be more muscular.
