Sorry, I don’t really know how to lose a lot of weight in just 3 days. If it is only a pound or two; not drinking soda, not eating sugar, etc. might help. I think you best option is to get some emergency alterations done. If you don’t already have a corset back in your gown, then putting one in may help. Also, there may be some room in the seams, so the seamstress can let it out some.

Can you get a lace-up back put in tomorrow???

You really don’t want to risk making yourself sick on your wedding day trying something to get into the dress.  That would really ruin your day-more than anything

Drink LOTS of water, over 100 oz a day. Eat only fresh fruits and veggies and lean meats. Eat whole cooked oats for breakfast and eat absolutely no salt,fats,or butter. Also eat no more than a saucer size every three and a half hrs to rev that metabolism.

@butterball: knock it off with the salad dressing and it’ll make a difference, eat veggies, grilled chicken (the protein will curb your appetite), and drink tons of water. Is there at sauna at your gym you can go to?

ZERO carbs apart from salads to make sure you don’t get constipated, no salt, and tons of caffeine might help you loose enough water weight for it to fit.

No salt, lots of protein and very low carb. You will lose a lot of water weight. Basically atkins stage one.

Get a body wrap from a professional spa. They can trim inches for just a day or two

If you eat eggwhites and then grapefruit after each meal for 3 days, you’ll drop 5 lbs. This is a TEMPORARY diet, not a long term one.

You can exercise as well for the next 3 days. Run 4+ miles, even if you have to walk some.


I hope this helps!

the 3 DAY  diet will make you lose a stone …..

cottage cheese, tuna and beetroot   etc.   it DOES work,   and you will gain it all back again once you eat differently.  this could be the answer for you for the short term.
