Not only can crash diets interfere with dress fittings, they can also result in fatigue, dizziness and nausea on the day of the wedding.
Accomplish controlled weight loss through the combination of a calorie reduction diet and exercise. The best place to start is with a physician. Once you have talked to your doctor you can begin to consider the countless choices available. Many weight loss programs provide sensible menu plans along with exercise, encouragement, information and counseling. Nutritionists and health club exercise professionals are also helpful.
