The Wedding Day Diet

The Wedding Day Diet

Looking great on your wedding day is definitely a priority, and that’s why BistroMD knows finding the best wedding day diet is equally important.

If you want to lose weight and slip into a new you for your wedding, there are some lifestyle changes you’ll need to make. Choosing a healthy diet should be your main goal. Many fad diets make unrealistic promises at the risk of your own health, and crash diets are unhealthy. Instead of looking for an easy answer to your weight loss problems, look for an appropriate wedding day diet that will encourage you to gradually and safely lose those extra pounds.

Remember: certain behaviors and foods will facilitate your weight loss, while others will halt your progress. There are, of course, the obvious foods that you’ll need to avoid on your wedding day diet (sugary sweets, and fried fatty foods, to name a few), but there are also foods that can help you look and feel great.

Different snack alternatives like avocados or Brazilian nuts on your wedding day diet can help your hair, skin, and nails look great. After all, losing weight is not the only aspect of looking great.

Fruits like green grapes and pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, and also improve skin tone and protect against wrinkles. Carrots can also help protect your skin against the damaging rays of the sun.

To follow a wedding day diet that is safe, healthy, and sustainable, BistroMD recommends that you eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day. Fruits and vegetables give your metabolism an extra boost to promote weight loss. They are also among the healthiest calories to consume, and they are rich in vitamins and nutrients.

Instead of filling up on unhealthy fast food, fruits and vegetables are an excellent substitute to satisfy your cravings. You should also try to introduce more fiber into your wedding day diet. Fiber helps you feel fuller, longer (thus preventing food cravings) and is essential for good bowel health.

Eating regularly during the day (small meals every 3 to 4 hours) can actually speed up your metabolism, which will help you lose weight faster. Be careful of consuming  extra calories; this will counteract the effects of an accelerated metabolism.

You should also incorporate some physical exercise into your wedding day diet plan. Exercise does not have to be a chore, and it can be fun. The professionals at BistroMD know that maintaining a rigorous exercise schedule can be very difficult, unless you enjoy what you’re doing.

Instead of signing up for a gym membership, why not participate in some of your favorite sports in your local community? Who says you can’t go dancing 4 or 5 nights out of the week as part of your wedding day diet? Or, if you do prefer the gym while sticking with your wedding day diet, we recommend that you bring a buddy. Studies show we’re more likely to maintain an exercise routine if we have a friend to motivate us. Whatever you choose, BistroMD knows that you have what it takes to look great for your wedding!
