Wedding Weight Loss
I received an email a few days ago where the bride-to-be expressed concerns about losing weight before her big day and some other questions. I hope these excerpts from my email with her will provide some useful information.
There are a few quick and easy photoshop techniques to make photographic subjects appear slimmer. But the best technique to use is appropriate posing and composition so that you will not be made to appear larger. Every experienced wedding photographer makes sure the bride, all the bridesmaids and mothers also receive any special facial retouching and air brushing to smooth slight imperfections in their skin.
There are several weight loss control centers in and around Chattanooga for brides who have some concerns about looking their very best on their special day.
According to a recent survey of 1,000 brides by Fitness magazine, 83% of brides-to-be wanted to shed weight before their wedding day and many were ready to take drastic actions to shed the pounds.
These days brides are spending more money and wearing more revealing dresses than ever before. Today there are more brides who are body-conscious and some who are going under the knife, fasting, diet pills and even putting off their wedding dates in order to hit their ideal weight.
Dieticians warn that fasting makes brides irritable and stress rises because fasting doesn't provide sufficient quantities of vitamins, minerals and blood suger. Then couple this with diet pills which are high in caffeine and the bride-to-be may experience racing heart, acid reflux, irritable bowels and anxiety disorders.
Most dieticians and doctors recommend a sensible diet and exercise to begin around six months to 1 year before the wedding. Unfortunately many brides-to-be still resort to more drastic measures.
The best plan is to talk with a weight loss professional. It is best to first find out how much if any weight really needs to be lost, at least from a health standpoint. Then depending on many different factors to be considered, a reasonable diet and exercise program can be created specifically to help the bride lose weight in a safe manner and maybe even help make it easier for her to keep any excess weight off.
