Brides, Have No Fear. Your Dream Wedding Diet is Here!


It's a new summer season, which means that love is in the air for many brides-to-be. This means only one thing: it's time to start your wedding diet!

Another wedding season is upon us, and many brides are stressed about losing weight. Every woman wants to look her best on her wedding day, but for some women, a wedding diet can be stressful. Every bride wants to look gorgeous in her dream wedding dress, but this is easier said than done. Finding a proper wedding diet can be a problem for many brides-to-be, but thanks to six inspirational women featured in the People magazine's article, "Look Who's Losing!" and meal-plans like BistroMD, these brides looked great for their wedding, and they felt healthy, too!

Don’t Let Stress Get the Best of You

There is no doubt that many brides can have a stressful time finding the right wedding diet. In fact, most brides are desperate to lose the weight in such a quick pace, that they often neglect their nutritional needs. Many brides subject themselves to fasting, crash dieting, and even unhealthy diet supplements. Fasting, crash dieting, and diet supplements are no way to get in shape for your wedding. There are healthier solutions that can give you great results for your wedding, and give you great results for the rest of your life!

BistroMD is the perfect solution for brides-to-be who are looking for a healthy wedding diet, but also a healthy lifestyle change. Planning a wedding can be stressful, so BistroMD offers brides a successful way to diet.

Recently, an article in People magazine challenged six brides-to-be to go on a special diet for their wedding. The diet consisted of foods that were high in fiber, and that contained complex carbohydrates. These foods, along with a well-balanced exercise routine, gave the brides the weight-loss they wanted, and gave them the extra energy they needed. Their weight loss was also very gratifying . Most of the brides saw results in as little as two weeks.

Calories That Won’t Make You Sweat

Planning a wedding can be stressful, which is why BistroMD offers brides a stress-free way to diet. To lose weight for your wedding, we recommend eating a diet with foods that contain leaner quality protein. This includes chicken, fish, and lean beef. We also recommend that busy brides-to-be have a good dose of fiber. Fiber is found in foods like fruits, vegetables, beans, and grains.

Fiber is special because it is a string of sugar molecules that can pass through our bodies without being metabolized. Fiber helps us get full, without that “full” feeling, and it prevents us from overeating. For their wedding diet, the brides featured in People magazine were given daily diets that consisted of foods that contained leaner quality protein, and healthy servings of fiber. These foods were also healthy sources of quality carbohydrates. The food in their diets helped the brides build leaner muscle mass, and helped them control their cravings. All of their meals added up to about 1,600 calories a day, similar to the calorie intake given to clients in every BistroMD meal plan. This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in-between meals.
