Mistake 1 – Skipping breakfast ~ By skipping this important meal, you will be hungrier for the rest of the day. A decent breakfast will kick start your metabolism right from the word go!

Mistake 2 – Not eating enough protein ~ Protein will fill you up for longer, try chicken or fish for your lunch time meal and keep hunger at bay all day.

WedDietingMistakesMistake 3 – Getting your portion size wrong ~ Try eating off a smaller plate and filling it instead of filling a large plate. Eat slowly and enjoy every mouthful. That way, you will feel more satisfied.

Mistake 4 – Losing track of what you’ve eaten ~ Absent-mindedly snacking throughout the day can put a full stop to your slimming. Record everything, keep a food diary. Have snacks, just remember to include them in your calorie allowance.

Mistake 5 – Not drinking enough ~ Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Green tea will help fill you up and will help to speed up your metabolism.

Mistake 6 – Setting unrealistic goals ~ Dieting mistakes don’t come much bigger than being unrealistic about the amount of weight you’re going to lose. Don’t buy a wedding dress three sizes too small in the hope that you will fit into it. Set an achievable weight goal and try your best to get to that.

Mistake 7 – Repeating old diet habits ~ Break the routine of old dieting habits that haven’t worked. Don’t start on a Monday, start on a Friday. You’re much more likely to succeed as you will have done the hardest part first and stayed strong throughout the weekend – weekdays will be much easier.

Mistake 8 – Starving yourself ~ Don’t starve yourself because you’ll end up binge eating. Try to eat a handful of fruit when you get hungry – it’ll keep you going and stop cravings.

Mistake 9 – Hiding the scales ~ Don’t be scared of the scales. Get weighed regularly so you can see little loses, which will motivate you to continue.

Mistake 10 – Going it alone ~ Don’t try to lose weight on your own. More people are successful when they get the support of friends and loved ones. Ask a bridesmaid, your mum or your h2b to train and exercise with you and you’ll find the whole process a lot easier.

1. Take a before photo of yourself upon starting your challenge and stick this on your fridge. Every time you open the fridge take a look and remember why you put that there. Just think about that perfect dress and the day and that will help keep you motivated.

WEDSlimmingTIPS2. Try porridge for breakfast or lunch. Not only can you get some great tasting flavours, this will keep you fuller for longer. All of the foods used in the plan can be purchased from your local supermarket – no expensive health foods here!

3. Eat slowly and try to enjoy every mouthful. When you concentrate on the food you’re eating, the flavour and enjoyment will be so much more intense, you will find yourself more full and satisfied.

4. Invest in some digital scales to see small weight losses, which will help keep you in the slimming zone. Also, try to diet with a friend to help keep you motivated. It will also help to fill in the personalised daily diary that comes with the plan. This way you can track what you’re eating on every day of the 12 weeks.

5. If you fancy the occasional glass of wine, go for a dry white, which has fewer calories. Mix it with diet lemonade to make it last longer. The diet plan also includes lots of other top tips and motivational advice, so check it out!

6. Want a quick low-calorie meal? Try a Prawn or Chicken Stir fry. Replace the noodles for extra vegetables. Proteins like chicken and prawns will help keep you full up through-out the day. The Wedding Dress Diet Plan includes a handy 7-day meal planner so you can pre-plan all the protein for the week and quick and easy recipes even the busiest bride-to-be can try.

7. Try Lindt “dark” chocolate for an intense chocolate hit at only 40 calories approx per square. One square is enough for a sweet tooth and it will stop you reaching for the whole bar.
