Bride Weight Loss

Bride Weight Loss

It’s no surprise that bride weight loss is a multimillion dollar a year industry.


At BistroMD, we know that helping brides look great for their wedding day is about much more than just money. For a bride, weight loss is about looking beautiful, and feeling confident on the most important day of her life.

Safe and successful weight loss requires a focus on total fitness rather than simply shedding pounds.

As such, medical professionals will often recommend a conservative diet plan that includes daily exercise. Fad wedding diets, that promise rapid bride weight loss, are little more than a scheme to get your money by promising unrealistic results in impossibly short periods of time.

Overcome "Wedding Weight" Challenges

Losing extra weight before a wedding is challenging for a number of reasons.

First of all, preparing for a wedding is very stressful. There are so many arrangements that need to be made, and sometimes a bride’s health is her last concern.

Also, bride weight loss can be difficult to achieve because of all the parties and dinners leading up to the big day. Instead of avoiding these celebrations, try remembering a few of these tricks that will help you achieve and maintain your weight loss goals.

One very important step, that any bride can take, is to avoid alcohol.

Alcohol is very high in calories; not to mention, consuming excessive amounts can cloud your ability to make the right food choices.

Also, load up on healthy fruits and vegetables, rather than rich, less healthy foods.

Finally, be prepared. Making plans as to what you will eat, and when you will exercise, can help you avoid the bad habits that prevent bride weight loss.

Increase Your Physical Activity

Still, bride weight loss is achieved not only by changing your diet, but also by increasing your activity levels.

Exercise not only helps us burn calories, it also reduces stress, making bride weight loss easier to achieve.

As mentioned previously, planning a wedding can be very stressful.

Stress can cause us to revert to our poor eating habits as a comfort, and can therefore negatively impact our weight loss plan.

Regular exercise has been proven to reduce stress levels, which in turn allows you to maintain focus on your health. Plus, moderate weight lifting or strength building exercises can help you develop a nice toned body, so you will look even more beautiful in your wedding dress. Medical science has shown that the benefits of regular exercise are plentiful.

Set Clear, Achievable Goals

BistroMD knows that any lifestyle change, including changes in diet and exercise, can be difficult to maintain.

For this reason, we recommend that you set clear and achievable goals. This will help you maintain the motivation you need to maintain your diet.

Each week, challenge yourself to achieve certain mini-goals, and as you succeed, you will become more and more confident in your abilities. The roll-over effects of building confidence will make you feel great about yourself, and you’ll only feel more and more capable of achieving your ultimate goal.
