Wedding Diet


It’s really no surprise that all brides, and even most grooms, try out a wedding diet so they can look their best for their wedding day. As the focus of one of the most important celebrations of their lives, brides and grooms want to feel and look their best. A simple Internet search of “wedding diet” will yield hundreds, if not thousands, of results. Choosing the right diet for you can be daunting.

If it's the perfect wedding diet that you seek, fear not, because bistroMD is here to help.

While there are tons of wedding crash diets advertised in the media, the truth remains that the healthiest and safest way to lose weight is through a balanced diet and exercise program.

If you come across a diet plan promising to help you lose 10 pounds in a week, then you should proceed with serious caution. Many young brides and grooms are unaware that healthy weight loss means losing no more than 1-2 pounds per week.

Losing an excessive amount of weight in a short period of time can be detrimental to your health, and won't help you sustain successful weight loss. A good wedding diet will recommend a plan that includes a variety of vegetables, drinking plenty of water, avoiding fatty and sugary foods, and exercising regularly. A plan structured like this will help you lose weight effectively, and will help you keep if off for good.

Your wedding is a good motivator to help you maintain life-long healthy habits. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you really need to give yourself plenty of time. Gradual weight loss is more stable, and more achievable. By giving your body the time it needs to trim down, you are also giving yourself time to learn healthier habits.

After several weeks on a wedding diet, you’ll be able to see how easy success can be. This will motivate you to maintain these new habits long past your big day.

Sure, you might start a diet to look great for your wedding, but you’ll stay on the diet because of how great you feel. Trying a crash diet to lose weight quickly may show you immediate results, but the success won't last. A healthy, balanced diet leads to stable, long lasting weight loss without compromising your health.

An effective wedding diet can actually give you an opportunity to spend more time with your bride or groom to be. When a bride and groom start a wedding diet together they learn how to eat and exercise effectively. They can lend each other support during the most challenging times and praise during the most successful times. You can cherish the time working together on your wedding diet, and continue to support each other on your quest to live a healthier lifestyle for the rest of your lives.
