What is the best wedding diet?
The answer is none! No diet works! You can not restrict your body of too much, before you start to binge, and gain weight. That’s why the results are temporary.
If you want to look your best on your wedding day, but you also want to maintain the incredible results. Then you need to learn how to make the wisest choices when it comes to your “wedding diet”.
One thing is for sure, you do not have much time available to cook since you are doing a million things to prepare for the big day. So you are going to have to do some planning. If you plan ahead, this “diet” is going to be a breeze!
There are 7 easy steps to this “wedding diet”
1. Eat a lean protein, a starchy carbohydrate, and a vegetable every 3-4 hours.
2. Eat foods that are low in sodium and low in sugar.
3. Try to stay away from the flours, even if it’s whole wheat. Not that it is horribly bad, but during this time…..stick to other carbohydrates, like sweet potatoes.
4. Don’t let yourself get to the point where you are starving, because then for sure you will over eat!!!!
5. Eat small meals and watch your serving sizes.
6. Take a couple days a week to bulk cook. Make lots of chicken, fish, tuna, turkey, brown rice, potatoes, vegetables, and keep them all in Tupperware’s.
7. Drink half of your body weight in pounds in ounces. So if you weigh 100 lbs, you would drink 50 oz of water.

I did this during my engagement, and it was so easy. I had a day picked out in which I did my healthy grocery shopping, two days in which I bulk cooked. I made sure I planned each day ahead so that I can take the necessary meals with me. I never starved, I never over exercised, I had tons of energy, and I looked the best I ever have for my wedding! And the above is an example of what I did.
