Nothing can bring more joy and more stress simultaneously that an upcoming wedding. Dress shopping, interviewing photographers, visiting potential venues, choosing the caterer and determining that ever-complicated final guest list are just a few of things that a bride and groom have to look forward to. Those upcoming nuptials can bring a sense of overwhelming joy and terrifying fear at the same time.And on whom does most of the stress fall? The groom: I think not! The bride, of course, is the one with the most responsibility. And if she is like most women, she will spend most of her time making sure that the event is perfect for everyone else while neglecting her own health. Brides typically get less and less sleep as the event nears. Their eating habits aren’t the best because, let’s face it, convenient foods are generally not healthy foods. Exercise becomes a thing of the past because there are just too many things bumping exercise to the bottom of the list. And stress may be at an all time high.
The average bride-to-be wants to lose about 10 pounds before the wedding. They would love to make the most of that very expensive dress! Also they know that the average weight gain on a honeymoon is five to ten pounds. Well, here lies the problem. Eating poorly, sleeping less, exercising less and increasing your stress level are the four most common causes of weight GAIN. So here are some tips that may help you:
1. Drink approximately 100 ounces of purified water per day.
2. Do your best to make sleep times between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Getting 6 hours of sleep within this time window is healthier than getting more sleep outside this window.
3. Carry snacks such as nutrition bars in your purse so that you won’t be caught without food and forced to go for “convenience” foods.
4. Learn the concepts of glycemic load versus glycemic index and choose foods wisely.5. Try to get at least three 30-minute walks in a week. The easiest way is to walk away from your home for 15 minutes. Guess what, you have to walk back! You can multitask while you walk. Use your iPhone or other device to preview music, organize lists, or listen to educational talks.
6. Avoid gimmicks or fad advice. It is not worth sacrificing your overall health to lose weight.
7. Most importantly, remember that the wedding is about the two of you.
