Not enough time to slim down into your wedding dress? Here are a few tips we found to help you lose those unwanted pounds fast. First, start your day with Juicing 1 apple, 4 strawberries, 1 celery stalk, 1 carrot, slice of ginger and a handful of spinach. There is nothing like feeding your body fresh fruits and veggies and what better way to kick start your day! Second, do 30 minutes of power walking on an empty stomach everyday to get energy from your body's stored sugar and burn fat from problem areas. Lastly, eat protein first and carbs second in meals. This will help your body get what it needs instead of storing your meal as fat. Do this for 3-5 days to drop at least 3-7 pounds. Good luck!

I can't think of a better way to spend time with family and friends than to cook.
