As we all know, looking your best on your wedding day is the ultimate goal for every bride and groom. We also know that planning a wedding can be very stressful and time consuming and many times you can forget about your weight and accidentally pack on a few pounds.
The good news for you is that there are new diets popping up every single day and there are many older diets which brides and grooms are using to help trim off the weight you may have gained during the few months before your wedding.
Here are the top five most popular diets that Americans are using every day to lose weight safely and effectively before their big day.
The Atkins Diet
The Atkins Diet operates on the premise that eating carbohydrates increases insulin levels. If you aren’t familiar with insulin levels, high insulin levels tell your body to store energy. By removing carbs from your diet, your body will automatically begin burning fat to give you energy. This diet made the Medical News Today’s list of the top eight diets of 2009. The Atkins diet came around in 1972 and still has many followers.
The HCG Diet
The HCG Diet is the newest diet on this list and is quickly becoming a fan favorite due to the quick and lasting results. This diet is the only diet what requires an individual to supplement to assist in weight loss such as HCG drops, HCG pellets, or HCG injections.
The South Beach Diet
The South Beach Diet is also centered around eating good carbs and not bad carbs to help control insulin levels. One doctor’s efforts to dispute the idea that low fat diets work for a long period of time created this diet in the early 1990s.
Weight Watchers is a very popular and highly successful diet franchise founded in the late 1960s. In addition to its fabulous diet and exercise programs, Weight Watchers is unique because it offers an extensive support network where members get together regularly and encourage/help one another along the way.
The Flat Belly Diet
According to the Flat Belly Diet, if you eat foods high in monounsaturated fatty acids, you’ll lose weight and you’ll lose it from your midsection first. There was a study performed at the Yale University Prevention Research Center which proved that subjects did lose approximately 1/3 of their belly fat after just one month on this diet.
