We're on a diet at the moment, it currently involves minimal exercise. We have a fruit smoothie for breakfast, an omelette or salad for lunch and something for tea. If we're hungry we're having flavoured rice cakes, breadsticks or nuts. We have totally cut out fizzy drinks, bread, cheese, coffee etc and replaced it with cranberry juice but more often bottles of water which we fill up with tap water and put in fridge. Hubby has lost 1 stone in 3 weeks and i've lost half a stone. Good luck.
If you're really serious, I can recommend low carbing. Just note that when you stop low carbing you will put weight back on.
Here's the plan:
3 days 'hard core' - no carbs (this is based on a plan by a guy called Stillman) and involves eating only lean meat/fish for 3 days. Maximum of 5g carbs each day. So that means cutting out tea/coffee if you drink it with milk. Your diet will consist of eggs, lean meat/fish only. No fat to be used in cooking of your meals. No alcohol.
After these 3 days, move onto Atkins Induction for the next 14 days = 20g of carbs each day, which should come only from salad and green vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower.
You should eat more fat during this period, and will be able to introduce cream, butter and cheese.
No alcohol during this period at all.
If you really want to lose a stone, if you follow this (which is for 17 days) you should lose at least half a stone - so you have another fortnight to lose the rest!
Atkins is very, very badly misrepresented in the media - his book The New Diet Revolution (or something like that) is really worth reading.
It isn't supposed to be a quick fix - but it should help you if you follow it for the next month!
second, i can also recommend the atkins. however you wont put on weight again if you learn how to eat differently, and continue on the maintenace for life.
however, a word of caution. weight loss that happens too quickly is going to show on your face. skinny pinched in, dark circles roundyour eyes, blotchy skin is not the look i would want as a bride. is a stone really necessary? surely a dress that is fitted really really well, tailored etc to you, good underwear and a glowing happy face wouldl be better at making you look your best?
two months is still acheivable with the atkins as it does give you time tolose the weight and move onto the maintenace. get the book and read it through, andmake sure you have all the foods at home before you startt. also, during the indution time, it would be easier to stick to it if you dont eat out anywhere.
good luck kits
