Tips To Lose Weight For Wedding 3 Months Away
So many people want to lose weight but they don’t know-how. The right way, according to the experts who have been there before and got results themselves is simple – calories in VS calories out. If you’re consuming more than burning each day your body holds onto those excess fats turning them into body fat. Some say it needs 10 hours of meal prepping or 15 ingredients for a recipe.
Nowadays, people can easily get carried away with the busyness of their lives. They often forget to take care of themselves and find time for self-care because it’s one thing on a long list that needs attention but when you are just getting ready to walk down an aisle in your dream dress or simply need some support while wearing something special during wedding celebrations.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the idea of planning your own wedding, then let me help. I have done all this research for free. Here is a general guide on how to lose weight for wedding, before and during one; as well as what foods should be limited in order not to overdo it with calories or fat content (which can lead people who don’t exercise often). There’s also an easy meal plan just waiting inside – good luck shedding those extra pounds.
Weight Loss Tips for the Wedding 3 Months Away
Here are simple tips to lose weight for wedding that can make a BIG difference.
1. Track What You’re Eating
Tracking your diet can be an eye-opening experience. It doesn’t have to last forever – even tracking for just a few days will give you some insight on what’s worth eating and not. I like the app Lose It (versus My Fitness Pal), as it has fewer foods in its database, which makes things easier when inputting chicken or any other food of choice.
To get the most accurate calorie intake for you, it is important to take into account your metabolism. There are many different apps on mobile devices that can calculate this number accurately but they all have their own algorithm and formula based on height/weight measurements as well as gender alone which may not be enough when figuring out what’s best.
You should follow a diet that is doable for the long term. If you want to lose weight, it’s important not only to watch what goes in but also to take into account how much energy output will be needed when following your new eating plan. I recommend tracking normal dietary habits over 3-5 days without restriction and then removing 100 -250 calories from this average (depending on the desired goal). This way we can ensure our metabolism works best with whatever caloric intake rate prevents excessive gain back later down.
2. Reduce Starchy Carbohydrates
Reducing total carbohydrates in the diet is significantly proven to:
reduce your appetite
cause faster weight loss compared to high carb diets
boost your metabolism while losing weight if eating adequate protein
Starchy carbohydrates are starches that include grains, pasta, and quinoa as well as starchy vegetables such as beans or peas. These nutrients provide your body with energy for its day-to-fruit needs plus they add bulk to our diets making them important parts of every meal we consume.
When you start tracking your calories, notice how many servings of starches and carbohydrates are in a day. Can these numbers be reduced without feeling deprived? Swapping out one food for another can often make dinnertime much more enjoyable.
3. Add Non-Starchy Vegetables for Volume
The best trick you can do to get more out of your carbs is to fill up on vegetables. Starches and non-starchy ones alike, but specifically those that are low in fiber like leafy greens or corn kernels will help slow down the release process so they don’t wreak havoc with blood sugar levels during lunchtime.
The choice is yours. You can enjoy 1/2 cup of rice or 3 cups cauliflower, with some lean meats for added protein and plenty that will help fill up your stomach in an environmentally friendly way.
4. Focus on Eating Only When You’re Hungry, not from Boredom, Stress, or Other Emotions
There’s no set number of meals per day that everybody needs. Listen to your body and if you’re not hungry, don’t eat! The trick is sometimes we confuse boredom with hunger so pay close attention as well. We’ll know what makes us feel fuller longer than just eating anything because it won’t be long before our bodies tell us otherwise anyway. Enjoy those snacks without feeling guilty about them later (unless there are certain foods listed in red which should only appear once upon a time).
The hunger and fullness cues in your body can help you know when to eat or not. If it’s not time for food, find something else that will make you happy like reading instead of snacks.
5. If Weight loss is Important to You, Make Time for It
Time really is an illusion. We make time for things we want to do. For example – if my work has me scheduled all day, but then I see a TikTok video of someone’s super cute Amazon throw blanket that they just bought online, I’m going ahead with the shopping trip because it sounds amazing and will be perfect in our living room at home.
Time management is key to success. When you have a busy work schedule and family life, it can be difficult to find the time or energy for meal prepping but this will help increase your productivity in other areas of daily living.
Create a workout plan. Maybe you can do 30 minutes of active rest in your living room 3 times per week or work with an experienced personal trainer for three months before starting strength training again and see results.

It’s important to listen when your body tells you that it needs food. It may not be happy with anything in particular, but just by looking at the nutritional values on a label can tell us what will make them feel better – protein & fat type foods like eggs or cheese for example. Here are some ideas:
2 hard-boiled eggs + 1 string cheese
Omelet with diced bell pepper and ½ avocado
1 low-sugar yogurt with ⅛ cup crushed nuts
Lunch should be a time to recharge and get back on track. You’re not going anywhere if you’re too tired, so make sure that your body is getting what it needs for energy. Here’s an example lunch!
- 1 can tuna (protein) + 1 Tbsp mayo + everything bagel seasoning. Mix those ingredients together. Dip 2 cups of baby carrots!
It’s important to keep your diet balanced with plenty of protein and fat while limiting carbs. If you’re looking for more energy, try having one or two servings from each food group every day. Here are some examples:
1 cup baby carrots + 1 to-go guacamole
2 hard-boiled eggs + 1 string cheese (yes, breakfast meals can double as snacks!)
1-2 servings of jerky
Here’s an example dinner:
- 2 cups broccoli + 1 serving frozen shrimp. Stir fry with an oil spray & drain away any excess water. Top with 2 Tbsp peanut sauce, and 1/8 cup roasted peanuts.
