A wedding seems to send everybody into a crash diet—including the couple. While you’re not expected to have supermodel bodies on your wedding day, you and your partner should still strive to be in great shape. True, ROUND is also a shape. But it is not the shape that a groom would want to be in when he puts on his wedding suit. And it would simply be heartbreaking for a bride to discover on her wedding day that she can’t fit into her dress. So don’t wait until your wedding is just around the corner before you suddenly embark on a fitness program. Follow these simple and practical diet tips and you’ll be well on your way to becoming the most stunning pair to ever to say “I do”.
•More meals, smaller portions
Dieting doesn’t necessarily mean skipping meals. Studies have shown that eating irregularly would even lead to more weight gain because your body burns lesser calories.Eating more meals in smaller portions throughout the day would be the best route to take. Keep yourself full during meal intervals by snacking on whole-wheat crackers, nuts or raisins. They will keep you energized and you will burn these “mini-meals” easily as you go about your usual wedding errands. If you allow yourself to go hungry, chances are you will just eat more on your next meal.
•Drink lots water
The importance of water can never be over-emphasized. Drinking eight glasses or more daily not only cleanses your body of toxins, but it also aids digestion and speeds up metabolism, hence the body is expending more energy. This means you will burn more calories. Besides, sipping water every now and then could keep you from excessive snacking. Drinking a glass or two before a regular meal would also fill you up faster and help you eat less. For added inspiration, get identical water bottles so you and your partner will remember of each other whenever you grab a thirst-quencher.
•Consume more fruits and veggies
A healthy diet is never complete without fruits and vegetables. They are rich sources of fiber, which “sweeps” away unwanted wastes that accumulate in the body. Fruits and vegetables are also loaded with water so they make you feel full longer and keep you away from otherwise fattening treats. To make things more interesting, schedule a grocery date with your future spouse and spend time picking out exotic fruits and vegetables at the fresh produce section of the supermarket.
•Take your vitamins
Planning a wedding is a stressful business, and the last thing you’d want is to get sick right before your wedding day. Aside from having a healthy diet, taking multivitamins and other supplements is a great way to keep you in tip-top shape for the big day. Vitamin E promotes more radiant-looking skin and healthier hair, while Vitamin C is a proven immunity booster to ward off common colds and flu. Remember, you may vow to love each other “in sickness and in health,” but it’s always better to kick-start your marriage with both of you being in perfectly good health and fit shape.
Being fit and fabulous for your wedding day is not an impossible feat with these terrific and easy-to-do tips that any couple could easily follow.
