Many brides are trying to lose weight before their weddings and others are simply too stressed out to eat. No matter what category you fit into, you’ll want to ensure that you maintain proper nutrition before your wedding. Start by taking a multivitamin supplement every day. This will help give your body the nutrients it needs on a daily basis, even if you aren’t always eating properly. Choose a daily vitamin that is designed specifically for women as this supplement meets the exact needs of women your age. You’ll want to take care to get plenty of sleep and eat three meals a day in order to combat the added stress that preparing for a wedding can bring.

One mistake that many women make is trying to lose too much weight before the wedding. It isn’t healthy to lose more than a couple of pounds per month. Any more than that and you’ll certainly be harming your body more than you’re helping it. Poor nutrition or eating too few calories per day will make you less able to cope with stress and make you tired and cranky. To get the most out of your daily nutrition before your wedding, follow these easy tips:

• Eat breakfast every day. Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day because it actually jump-starts your metabolism. Those who skip breakfast may actually gain more weight because the body doesn’t properly burn the calories you do consume.

• Eat smaller portions more often in the day. Many nutritional experts believe that it’s best to eat several small meals than just a couple larger meals each day. Your body is better equipped to handle small amounts of food more often in the day. Remember that food is fuel to your body so you need to refuel every so often to keep up your energy.

• Don’t eat when you’re stressed. Many people tend to eat snacks or junk food when they are worried or stressed. This can lead to binging and consuming a lot of extra empty calories that will only lead to weight gain.
• Drink plenty of water. The body is made up mostly of water and you need to replace water throughout the day, even if you aren’t exercising. Water also helps you to curb an excessive appetite.

• Eat slowly. Eating your meals slowly helps your body properly digest and also helps you to know when you’re full. Overeating is easier to do when you eat quickly. Instead, try to take your time eating your meals and avoid eating on the run or while you’re on the road.

• Don’t diet. Now is not the time to try a crazy new diet plan. You’ll be better off eating sensible meals, consuming fewer calories per meal, and eating the foods your body needs. Add an exercise regime to your schedule as this will help keep your body regulated and also helps you to reduce your tension level.
