Healthy Weight Loss Tips for Pageant Girls

Trying to lose those stubborn pounds before a pageant can be very stressful. Remember, you are beautiful already so do not over-worry this!  But if it is indeed part of your plan then realize that there are countless ways to do it, many of which are hazardous–which is why many professionals suggest reaching your target weight about a month before the pageant to avoid any dangerous diets.

However, if you find yourself a few pounds shy of your goal days before the pageant then here are a few suggestions for healthy weight loss. And we do want healthy pageant contestants! :-)

–       If your sweet tooth starts kicking in, try munching on some dark chocolate instead of reaching for the cookie or bowel of ice cream.

–       Get a vegetable in at every meal— they fill you up before you can chow down on high calorie foods. They are low in calories, high in volume, and high in critically important nutrients–need I say more?

–       Eat breakfast everyday. A healthy breakfast jump starts your metabolism and helps raise you energy level for the rest of the day. It also helps you feel more satisfied throughout the day, preventing over eating or binge eating.

–       Portion control. I cannot stress this enough. Eat all the low-starch veggies you want! But other than that even too much healthy food can hinder weight loss; it’s not just the junk food.  You not only have to watch what you eat, but how much as well.

–       Eliminate all drinks other than water and herbal tea: many drinks such as soda, juice, alcohol, and other processed drinks are full of empty calories with no nutritional value.

–       When you feel a hunger pang, before reaching for that snack try drinking a big glass of water—you might be dehydrated.  Either way, water is also a must have to flush out all the toxins that may be inhibiting your weight loss. Drinking water is an easy way to stop yourself from binge or stress eating.

Remember that every one is different–use your head and avoid foods that you are allergic to or are otherwise intolerant of. For instance, some foods might make you bloat a little, or a lot!, so learn to listen to your body and avoid what it doesn’t like.

And no matter what, stay hydrated and get enough protein often enough in the day. It won’t help you out at all if you are feeling dizzy or weak ever, let alone during the extra demanding schedule at the pageant.  Be healthy!
