Fifth of women diet before going to a friend’s weddings

A fifth of all women have dieted before going to a friend’s wedding, a recent study has shown.

The survey, conducted by SlimFast, found that female wedding guests lose an average of three pounds before the big day.

It also revealed that nearly half of all brides lose weight before they tie the knot, with an average of eight pounds being shed.

A third of women admitted that they would consider choosing an overweight friend to be their bridesmaid, so that they would look slimmer in comparison.

Speaking on behalf of SlimFast, life coach Pete Cohen said that weddings really bring out the self-consciousness of women.

"Everyone knows that they are going to be in the limelight. Everyone knows there are going to be photographs taken," he explained.

Mr Cohen advised women against embarking on starvation-type diets and "ridiculous" exercise regimes in order to slim down for such events.

He recommended following a sensible diet plan as a great way for women to achieve the slimmer figure they desire.

Are you going to a wedding any time soon? Why not set yourself a goal to lose weight before the big day?

    All of these comments are sooooo true- I do this myself

  • Lara

    i usually diet a few weeks before a special occassion. I usually do the lemon detox diet to lose weight as its gives you quick weight loss when you need it!!!

  • Sammy-Jo Giles

    I agree with all the ladies, however I always find myself waiting till the last minute to try to lose a bit of weight and end up not reaching my goal in time for the party.

    i would say that 20% of women diet before friends wedding is wrong, i would say its about 90%. I was on my friends hen day (in a spa) and there were 20 of us. 19 of us were dieting for the wedding – that’s a massive 95% !!!

    This is definately the case for all women 🙂
    I do it myself- same for any party really- get an invite for anything and you think- god I need to lose some weight before I put that outfit on lol

  • Francesca

    For any ‘occassion’ whether it be a friends wedding, christening or just a party, I always try to drop a few pounds so I look my best. I believe that any woman who is uncomfortable or not totally confident with there body would want to lose a little weight so they look there best on a specific occassion.

  • Kelly

    That’s what I tend to do 🙂 If I get a wedding invite, I choose an outfit and then aim to lose a few lbs for the event, its always the case.

    Im going to a wedding at the end of the july and will be doing the 3 day diet before i go. Really helps to lose a few pounds but i would not do it for more than 3 days.
