What I Ate In A Day – To Lose Weight For My Wedding (Day 9)

What I Ate In A Day – To Lose Weight For My Wedding (Day 9)


Here’s how I ate to lose weight – For my wedding

Here in this video and blog post, I’m showing you exactly what I ate in a day to lose weight – and what I ate to lose the last 10 Lbs before my wedding! This is “What I eat in a day to lose weight (Day 9)”.

I got married a few months ago – and before I even knew I was going to get married, I had already lost more than 30 Lbs. But I really wanted to lose the last 10 Lbs before my wedding. Today I’m showing you what I ate in a day to lose weight during that time (and also the healthy meals that I was obsessed with eating then).

Make sure that you check out my video below, and I’ve also typed up the full recipes for you below – these recipes just serve me (they just serve 1).


I generally eat 1200-1400 calories a day to lose weight, and sometimes 1100 (if I was very inactive that day). I have a petite frame, but women with a taller frame (or women who are very active every day) may need to eat more to lose weight in a healthy way. I talk more about how to work out your personal calorie needs in my book.

You can also download my 3 day eating plan for weight-loss, if you want another example of what to eat in a day to lose weight. I’m currently giving it away for Free, so you can download it and check it out if you want to.

And you can also check out my other “What I eat in a day” videos for more weight-loss meal inspiration.

I hope that you find this helpful!
