Why The Wedding Dress Diet could work for you

We caught up with Jenna who told us,

I had been through years of yo-yo dieting. I was stuck at 14 stone 10 lbs and a dress size 18 with one year to go until my wedding. This is when I knew I wanted to lose weight to fulfil my childhood dream of wearing the ultimate fairytale dress. However, my willpower and confidence were at rock bottom.

“I came across The Wedding Dress Diet Plan and decided to give it a go. The founders Nicky and Rachel were real people like me and the plan looked simple and easy“.

Following some lengthy research, Jenna committed to the plan. Results were instant and she tells us she lost 4lbs in the first two days.

I couldn’t believe how quickly I was seeing results,” she said.

It instantly boosted my willpower and gave me the self-belief to keep on going. The weight kept falling off. After four weeks I had lost a stone.

“Dress sizes fell away and I was delighted to get into a size 12 after the full 12 weeks of the plan. Going out and buying a new wardrobe was so exciting. I was buying clothes that showed off my shape and made me feel good about myself.”

The big attraction to Jenna was how easily the plan fitted into her busy life and also how much leeway there was for treats.

As a mother of one, I am constantly on the go. But the Wedding Dress Diet Plan was so easy. I was cooking delicious meals that were within the boundaries of the diet while still satisfying my child and partner.”

So how did Jenna feel on her big day?

I owe The Wedding Dress Diet Plan so much because I felt amazing on the day and received so many compliments. Lots of people asked how I’d done it. It’s all down to the plan. My heaviest last year was 15 stone 2lbs and a size 18/20. When I got married, I was 11 stone 6lbs and a size 12. I was so happy and proud of myself.”

So what is the diet and how does it work?

The wedding dress diet is a book by Jacqueline Shannon and Robyn Flipse, which you can buy here. The diet claims to be ‘safe and sane’ with plenty of exercise plans thrown in to aid weightloss.
However, the book doesn’t focus soley on losing weight. It focuses on the journey to your big day and how to prepare and enjoy it too. Written with a good sense of humour, it’s an enjoyable read with support from brides who have used it.
