Getting The Right Wedding Planner

We all dream of having the perfect wedding day. However, in order for us to turn that dream into a reality, we need to carefully plan out all of the important details of our upcoming special day. The problem is, we might not be that well-versed when it comes to dealing with this kind of thing given the fact that almost all of us our going to get married for the first time so we don’t know what things we need to pay close attention to. Because of this, it’s really of big help to get a good wedding planner to help us out.

When you look for a wedding planner, one of the first things you need to check for would be his portfolio. Review the past weddings he planned and handled so that you can get a good idea about how he does his work. Next, if he has a website or social media pages, take the time to visit those and look for reviews that his past clients have given him.

The Best Diet to Lose Weight for Your Wedding!

Introducing: The Best Diet to Lose Weight for Your Wedding!

If you haven’t heard of the ketogenic diet for women, stop everything and carry on reading! More and more people are recognising the health benefits of eating keto – one of which includes healthy fat loss. Perfect for anyone preparing to look a million dollars on their wedding day.

When discussing the potential benefits of a Ketogenic diet, I like to just go over a basic primer on human metabolism and then let people connect the dots. When you apply some relatively straightforward logic to the issue of diet, it soon becomes clear that the ketogenic diet has a simply huge number potential benefits. In fact, it would take more time to list them all than it does to just have a quick look at what your body needs, and what the ketogenic diet provides. You can do the math, as they say.

Fat, Fat, Glorious Fat!

First off, the ketogenic diet is about eating in a way that encourages your body to use fat for fuel, by giving it an abundance of healthy fat, whilst controlling your protein intake, and drastically reducing the amount of carbohydrates or sugars that you consume.

Could you believe that the reason most people are overweight, or struggle to lose weight is not because of the amount of fat they consume? I know, it seems to be against logic, but the fact is that your body is capable of storing energy from multiple sources as fat. You don’t just store fat, you store energy. So, it doesn’t necessarily follow that if you reduce your fat intake you will in any way affect your body fat. in fact, as we shall see, reducing your fat intake may well make your body store more energy as fat. I know, right? It’s nuts.

You’ve just got to remember that your body is a wondrous alchemical furnace that can use many different things as fuel. It can also store the energy from these things if your metabolism seems to need it. It’s mostly a self-righting system. You see people from colder climes eating more calories but not putting on weight because their bodies are using that energy to keep them warm. The body is amazing.The Ketogenic Diet 101 – Hacking...

Unfortunately, in recent years, some pretty shoddy thinking has crept into the dietary and nutrition mix, and there’s been some really dodgy advice flying around. The most damaging of all of this false knowledge, to my mind, is the idea that fat is harmful to the body and should be avoided at all costs. This is just palpably untrue. Not only are there more and more ketogenic diet people out there who know this from practical experience, but the simple science of the matter backs it up.

Of the average human body that is not water, fully 40% of it is fats. Nearly half. To think that fats should be excluded from the diet is just bonkers, and we’ve got the health problems to prove it.

As if that weren’t enough, there are some fats known as Essential Fatty Acids, that the body cannot manufacture on its own and which are absolutely vital to a healthy metabolism. Because they are building blocks for a number of extremely important molecules, a deficiency in these fats can lead to problems with just about everything. Seriously. They are essential for the Eicosanoid pathway which literally helps to regulate and govern the Immune system, the Inflammatory system, and, wait for it…. the Central Nervous System.

Seriously, I would love to see hospitals and doctor’s waiting rooms standing empty across the country as everyone gets with this news.

A healthy immune system is vital for prolonging length and increasing quality of life. Cancer that would normally be eliminated by a healthy immune system, is on the rise across the world, as are various auto-immune diseases of which the dreaded Alzheimers may be one. I think that we would see drastic improvements on these matters as soon as people drop the ‘fats are unhealthy’ model and realise that healthy fats are just essential.

The inflammatory system governs, amongst other things, allergic reactions. Inflammation running out of control is asthma in the lungs, eczema when it affects the skin, inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s when it is in the digestive system. What is the one thing most likely to cause the inflammatory system to start malfunctioning? Same reason a glass manufacturer’s would stop working if they ran out of sand….. lack of materials. A lack of essential fatty acids may well be the reason that all of these conditions have seen a sharp spike in the last forty years since fats were first demonised.

Finally, the central nervous system. That’s like, the brain, and the spine and everything connected to those things i.e. all of you.

Essential fatty acids have been shown to provide benefit for multiple neurological conditions and, wait for it, even depression and stress-related issues. Here’s the kicker:

The ketogenic diet was first used medically to treat epilepsy. Epilepsy is like the mother of all brain disorders. It’s just awful. It’s so bad people still willingly have their skull drilled into to try and bring it under control. It’s the brain going haywire and it’s no joke. The ketogenic diet, with its abundance of fatty acids, has been used for years to treat it. But this is the point, anyone can benefit from changing to the keto diet, especially if you have problems with one of these things. And yeah, let’s face it, we’ve pretty much covered all of the most common complaints in Western society right there.

If you’re thinking about starting a healthy weight loss plan for your wedding diet, I highly suggest you look into starting keto. Because you don’t want to just look and feel great on your big day – you want to look and feel great for the rest of your life!

Planning a Wedding? Important Marriage Advice Every Couple Should Know

Things should think about before your wedding

We all work so hard to find that right person. Yet, we fail to realize how difficult marriages can be. Getting marriage advice from time to time will help your relationship. It takes even harder work to make sure it lasts, and that it is the best part of your life. Everyone wants a good marriage that will last for years. After all, you got married to grow old together, right?


Provided here are a few tips that you should take into account during your marriage. Many of these tips have come from people who have lived through it. Remember, it is a two way street, and both parties need to put in the effort!

Marriage advice for you and your partner:

  • Stay accountable for what you do in the marriage, whether good or bad. You cannot be in denial about your part in the relationship, but take responsibility for it. If you need to change something, be aware of that and work on it.
  • Be close to your spouse. It is proven that touching more grows a bigger better bond.
  • Do not try to change your spouse, it is a waste of time and can just be frustrating. Trying to change your spouse, you will just come off as a nag and wind up sending a negative message that ‘who you are is not good enough’. That is not the message you want to send to your partner. Focus instead on working on yourself to become a better person and better spouse. Perhaps they will see the change, and want to change as well.
  • It is necessary to recognize when problems arise. Whether the problem is boredom in the bedroom, lack of conversations, resentment – recognizing them is the first step. Try every possible remedy you can think of. There are some that will work for you, and it will make your marriage stronger.
  • When arguing with your partner, do not shame, blame, or feel the need to be right. Instead, focus on really listening without interrupting. You may find that it is just a misunderstanding, and an argument is not even necessary. You can also learn how your partner views the situation, and be sympathetic. Use your ‘I’ statements. Your partner cannot read your mind, make sure to express how you feel as clearly as possible.
  • Understand that arguments have shared responsibility and that both people will have valid points and reasons for the way they feel. Understanding how your partner feels can make the argument be resolved better.
  • Remember that nothing in a marriage is more important than the relationship between the spouses. When other things, such as careers, children, and personal pursuits, become more important, that is when problems arise. Your relationship should be top priority, and when you make it so, your marriage will flourish.
  • Are you paying attention to how you are treating your spouse? When someone acts kindly to you, it is easy to return. The same goes for when you are treated badly, with anger or impatience. The golden rule applies to marriages as well. Work on treating your spouse how you wish they would treat you, and you will get that in return.


  • Focus on learning to appreciate your partner.
  • Keep in mind that the art of dating is still important as the years go by in your marriage. Making sure you set aside time for romantic evenings regularly can rekindle the magic of a long term relationship. This does not mean being fancy or expensive, it means something special that the two of you can do together and enjoy.
  • Taking care of yourself will keep you happy and your confidence up, which will help your marriage.Many feel the reason their marriage fell apart is because they became depressed and disinterested in their partner. By working on yourself, your marriage will stay fresh.
  • Make sure to have a little bit of fun together every day. We are all extremely busy, and do not have a lot of time left over at the end of the day. But since you need to make your marriage a priority, there is always time to have a little bit of fun together each day. Take a walk and hold hands, cook or exercise together, or just do something small. You would be surprised at the big difference this will make.

However bad or hopeless a relationship may seem, do not lose hope. Communicating the right way can even move mountains.
