The Bridal Bootcamp: An Overview
This program is designed for women who look forward to a wonderful new body on the day of their wedding. So, it basically focuses on areas that are most problematic for women. Each plan has a unique fitness regime, an eating plan and calorie restrictions.
To start off, you will have to select a term and a calorie bracket. You have the 1,300, 1,500 and 1,900 calorie plan that you can choose according to your needs. Described are six-month, three-month or four-week programs that women can choose according to their big date.
The eating plan advocates 50% carbs, 30% fats and 20% proteins per meal. You are allowed 5 small meals a day.
Recommended foods include vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cpinach, cabbage, asparagus, potatoes, parsnips, pumpkins, watercress and mustard greens. Fruits like apples, berries, pineapples, mangoes, pears and peaches are in. Additionally, you can get plenty of proteins and fats from meat, chicken, dairy and low fat salad dressing. Brown rice, buckwheat, corn, chickpeas and millet are also allowed.
If you want to really lose weight and get a fab body, the secret is to follow the exercise regime. As can be expected (what with the author being a personal trainer and all), there are wonderful exercises targeting difficult body parts. A word of warning though: the fitness plans are quite demanding and require three to four hours every week in a well equipped gym.
The Bridal Bootcamp: A review
The diet plan is nothing if not clearly focused on its objective of delivering a fabulous body within the constraints of available time limits. So, you could perhaps make allowances for the strict, military style food and exercise regime. But, following this program for 6 months does require determination and some free time.
The book focuses on healthy eating and rigorous exercising. You can follow it whether there is a wedding or not, and for as long as you wish.

But, then, nobody said that weight loss and a superb figure come easy. You have to work at it. That the effort required is gargantuan only adds to the attractiveness of the new body you’re going to get in the end. Right?
