Switch to Healthy Diet

Switch to Healthy Diet @theroyaleindia

First and foremost, say no to processed foods and aerated drinks. Ditch bakery products and include lots of green leafy vegetables and fresh seasonal fruits like lime, apple, water melon to your diet. These foods help you with glowing skin before the big day.

Avoid sodas or other aerated drinks instead opt for water, buttermilk and coconut water on a daily basis. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every day, it will not only improve your body’s metabolism but it will also assist your body in getting rid of toxins. In addition, water can accelerate the rate at which your body burns fat. Drinking a lot of water will also provide you with a healthy glow, and will make you look great on your wedding day.

Consume More Proteins

Consume More Proteins @theroyaleindia

If a little excess baggage is your concern, make sure to slightly lower the grain intake and substitute with lean protein for all your major meals. Choose from egg whites, fish, chicken, dairy products from skim milk and beans.

Lower Sugar & Salt intake

Lower Sugar & Salt intake @theroyaleindia

Salt causes the body to retain water and bloat around the midsection. Before walking the aisle, put down the chips, chiwda and other salty treats, because every handful contains half of your recommended daily allowance. Along with salt, lower the intake of white or processed flour, to prevent water retention, weight gain and baggy eyes. Substitute crunchy vegetables and small portions of raw almonds.

Avoid Alchohol

Alcoholic beverages not only contain a lot of calories, but they can also slow down your body’s metabolism. As a result, your body is not able to effectively burn calories and fat. Hence, it is advisable that you try to reduce or eliminate alcohol consumption. Even when you have a fun night out with friends, you should be careful about how much you drink. Alcohol can not only make you look puffy and bloated, but tired and weary. Consume in moderation or stay away from it.

When it comes to losing weight, there is no alternative to exercise. Twenty minutes of exercise a day will do wonders to increase your energy and will fasten the process of burning calories. If you are determined to lose weight before your wedding day, indulge in 30 to 45 minutes of aerobic exercises (running, biking, swimming …) three or four days a week. If you want to look your very best in your stunning outfits as well as for that glow on your skin, make cardio and yoga part of your exercise regimen.

Do Meditation

Take some time off from the wedding shopping hullabaloo and hectic pre-wedding schedule to pamper yourself. The season is perfect to indulge in spa massages that will not only hydrate your skin, but also drain away toxins from the body to leave it taut, healthy and fresh. Scrub your way to silky and smooth skin with an invigorating body scrub or else consider one to two weekly sessions of oil massage works best.

Sleep Well

Take some time for yourself the night before the wedding to relax. Staying stressed until the last minute may take away from your special day. As far as possible get at least eight hours of sleep every day and an afternoon snooze if possible. Rest is key to your body and face looking its best. The more sleep you can get the night before your wedding day, the more energy you will have to make it through one of the biggest days of your life.
