Weddings or civil partnerships can be really stressful and you want to look your best. Working with diet can get you fully prepared for your big day and give you that extra zing. you are probably hoping to lose a few of those extra pounds to look good on your wedding day. The problem is, between work and preparing for your wedding, you probably don’t have a lot of time to work out. Two of the best ways to lose weight that don’t occupy a lot of time are watching your caloric intake and casual exercise. When watching your caloric intake, the key is to cut out empty calories. Diet clinic offers a suitable designed diet plan for brides and grooms.

 A Bride’s diet

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day and as a result many brides focus only on losing weight in a short time frame.The stress that sometimes accompanies the desire to lose excess kilos means that many young women go on a crash diet or use dangerous and untested diet pills.While the effects in the short run may be desirable, it’s the long term health which ultimately suffers. What many brides find is that they binge eat after their wedding and in the process pile on more weight then they had initially lost as their metabolism rate has been affected.

Basic recommendations:

Start a supervised weight-loss diet at least 3 to 4 months before the wedding. Follow a diet that is nutritious and which allows you to lose no more than two to three kilos a month.

The most important guideline is to adopt a diet as a ‘ change of life plan’ not simply as a means to lose weight.

1.It is also important to set a realistic goal. No matter how long you are on a diet, try not to lose more than 10 kilos as the effects of such a loss will affect the quality of your skin and hair.
2.The diet should consist of three meals, supplement this with nutritious snacks throughout the day. The diet should be mainly comprised of milk and milk products, sprouts, soy, egg whites, chicken or fish and lots of vegetables and fruits.

3.Try and avoid vegetables like potato and yams, as well as heavy dals at night. When craving a juice, opt for vegetable based ones and also try to have an early dinner.

4.Above all, don’t skip meals as this leads to a slow down of the metabolic rate and you might gain weight instead of losing it.

A Groom’s Diet

To keep your metabolism in high gear (which means that your body will burn calories at a rapid rate), grooms ought to eat six mini meals throughout the day, rather than “breakfast, lunch and dinner.” Instead of gorging yourself on a huge chicken and pasta dinner, have a smoothie at 3pm and a smaller helping at dinnertime.

You will want to eat plenty of protein to build muscle as well as hearty portions of carbs to fuel your cardio workouts. The goal is to tailor your daily meal plan to your daily activity level so that you consume more protein on days that you strength train and more carbs on days that you cardio train.

If your body gets used to eating the same amount of calories each day, then your metabolism will slow down (i.e., becoming more efficient at using the calories you consume) and your weight loss will plateau. The worst part is that if your metabolism becomes sluggish and you go on a 3-day eating bender, then your body won’t know how to burn the excess calories that you have consumed. The result: Your body will store the calories as fat.
But weight loss isn’t just about caloric intake, it’s about the quality of the food you eat, as well. Our bodies are not made to digest hydrogenated oils  or any other man-made food substances. As a general rule, you should try to avoid foods that are overly processed.
