On this beautiful Sunday morning, the Rock the Dress Team brings you some Wedding Nutrition Tips.
- It is recommended that you eat 5 to 6 smaller meals per day. Eating smaller meals every few hours will keep you feeling full longer throughout the day and will help you avoid stress eating. By eating 5 to 6 smaller meals, it will help increase your metabolism. One important tip is to plan and prepare your meals ahead of time. This way you will be able to warm it up and eat while on the go. As a busy bride, one very important tip is not to skip a meal. This can lead to overeating and a decrease in your energy level.
- It is necessary that you drink plenty of water. Not only will this help you to stay hydrated but it will also help you to feel full. Try to drink between 8-10 ounce glasses per day. The more activity and exercise that you perform throughout the day, the more water you will need to drink. And try to avoid soda. Soda can actually cause you to lose more water that your body has reserved.
- It is important to snack smart. You will need your energy. Snacks filled with protein, iron, vitamins, and whole grains are a good source of energy. Some healthy options include: trail mix, peanut butter with wheat crackers, avocados, and fruit. When you feel your energy level start to diminish, make sure to have a snack handy and ready to eat.
- Avoid foods that cause bloating. Bloating is caused by sugary foods such as desserts, juices, white breads and pasta. Restrain from eating a large amount of these foods at least a week before the wedding. Water, soup, and fruit can help decrease your bloating.
No need to take extreme measures but rather incorporate long term changes into your routine that will ultimately better your life. What are you waiting for? We are here to help you look FABULOUS in your dress and beyond.
