5 Foods to Help you Lose Weight  For Your Wedding Naturally

Start losing weight naturally with these 5 foods.

Hello, Bride-to-Be!  Congratulations — I’m so excited for you!

Every bride wants to look and feel her best on her big day, and we all have our own unique set of challenges around this.

For me, it was finding out a few months after getting engaged that I needed to have major surgery.  

It fell right during Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I had six weeks of not exercising + eating all my favorite holiday foods with reckless abandon.  It’s crazy how much fitness you can lose and how much flab you can gain in just six weeks!

As a health coach and personal trainer, I knew how to clean up my diet and get back in shape quickly for my wedding.  I can help you do the same!
