The Best Pre-Wedding Diet

The Best Pre-Wedding Diet

There are literally hundreds of pre-wedding diets that promise to help you lose weight quickly and easily. Most of us know these promises are not possible, but nonetheless, get sucked in by their attractive promises.

At BistroMD, we don't promote unrealistic ideas about the safest and most effective way to lose weight. We do recognize the desire of brides and grooms to find an appropriate pre-wedding diet.

The most important thing to keep in mind before endeavoring on your path to lose weight is that you can be successful. Approach your pre-wedding diet with confidence and determination, and you will find there are truly no goals you cannot achieve. Here are some useful diet tips to help you achieve your goals through a pre-wedding diet.

1. Many health professionals have discovered the benefits of eating regular, healthy meals. There is a plethora of scientific evidence to support the idea that skipping meals or eating irregularly can actually slow metabolism and prevent weight loss. By eating small, healthy meals regularly throughout the day, you can increase metabolic rates and burn more calories.

2. When you begin your pre-wedding diet, you should avoid fast foods, fatty foods, and sweets. (OK, so we all love a treat every now and again--and at BistroMD, we don’t consider this a crime.) In fact, without allowing yourself the occasional treat, you may set yourself up for failure. Keep in mind though; the key word here is occasional. You can even use special treats as a motivator. For example, if you have succeeded at achieving one of your goals, you can reward yourself with a nice slice of your favorite cake. Eating these types of foods should not become a regular habit. Fatty foods and high-sugar foods are very high in calories and will prevent you from reaching your ideal wedding weight.

3. In addition to cutting down on high-calorie foods, you should include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your pre-wedding diet. Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins and nutrients, are a good source of energy, and are low in calories. Fruits and vegetables help us feel full without consuming a high-calorie diet. Another tip: when you’re shopping for foods, pay close attention to the labels. Nutrition labels give us valuable information about the content of fat and calories in a given product, and can help us plan an appropriate diet.

4. Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to achieve your goals. Weight loss is a gradual process, and the BistroMD pre- wedding diet was developed around this principle.

In order to lose weight in a healthy, safe and sustaining manner, you should try to lose no more than one to two pounds per week. This means if you plan to lose 20 pounds, you’ll need to give yourself at least 3 months to reach this goal. Never become discouraged by a poor performance one week; weight loss can be affected by many variables. Instead, try to use a poor week as motivation to work harder the next week. You’ll be looking fabulous for your wedding in no time!

If you want to start living better, and if you want to look fabulous for your wedding, then a pre-wedding diet from BistroMD may be your perfect option. Experience the benefits of a lighter, healthier you!
