Shhh! Some Little-Known Secrets about Diets, Exercise, and Prom Dresses

Prom night is almost here.

You’ve put on just a few extra pounds and now your tummy is starting to show just a little.

And unfortunately, most prom dresses don’t leave any room to grow. But don’t worry.

If you still have a few weeks left until prom night, you can take these simple steps to get those extra pounds off.

You’ll feel light on your feet and glow with fashion and pride on that special evening.

Foods to Avoid until the Prom

Over the next few weeks, try to avoid foods high in carbohydrates such as pasta and bread.

Check labels for substitute items or for items with fewer carbohydrates.

Avoid regular soft drinks as well and replace these with diet soft drinks, Gatorade, or flavored water.

Carbohydrate-rich foods as well as soft drinks tend to cause bloating in many people.

Even the slightest bloating that normally wouldn’t affect the fit of your regular clothing could make your prom dress too snug.

Remember, you’re going to be dancing and moving about so you’ll need some breathing room in your formal eveningwear.

Try to avoid junk foods such as snack cakes, candy bars, and potato chips.

Choose healthier snacks such as baked chips, nuts and cashews, raisins, low-fat ice cream or yogurt.

These can be eaten in moderation without worry of putting on more pounds.

Other things to limit include whole milk, casserole dishes, and fried foods. And, steer clear of the fast food restaurants over the next few weeks!
