Most plus size brides-to-be fall over themselves in the mad rush to lose weight. Before you too go and join the club, stop and think: why undergo this torture when your fiancé loves you at the size you are? Instead of making super-human efforts to look reedy thin, its time you switched over to a nutritious wedding diet that has you glowing in the goodness of health on the D-day!

But before you start your own bridal diet, make sure that you eliminate the unhealthy “weight loss habits” which can wreak havoc with your well being…

Say No To…

  • Diet Pills, as their prolonged use can lead to numerous side effects including nervousness, insomnia, restlessness, headache, heart palpitations, fatigue, excessive perspiration, hair loss… So do you think that this is a solution to look beautiful???
  • Crash diet is another folly that many brides commit before getting married. Remember, a crash diet simply makes you lose water and muscle and not fat. So once you go back to your normal eating habits, you will regain weight in no time. Besides, crash dieting can lower your energy levels and increase stress.
