Beauty in no way is about size. We believe that happy brides are always the prettiest. But ever wondered what makes losing weight so important especially before your wedding? Well, losing weight is not only about having a toned body but it has got to do a lot with general physical and mental fitness and what better if you can fit into that designer lehenga you have been eyeing upon since forever now.
So, before your D-day finally arrives, we at Bandbaajaa.com have for you 10 expert tips which you must follow to shed those extra kilos and feel healthy inside out.
Tip 1- Plan your workout at least three months in advance
According to Dr. Sunny Bawa, the owner of Nidsun Weight Loss Chandigarh, a to-be-bride should consult her gym and personal trainer atleast three-four months in advance. Since the bride tends to get busy as her wedding approaches, it is important to rectify problematic areas well in time and provide the correct treatment for the results to start showing.
Tip 2- Detox Plans can be highly effective
Removing cereals from your diet once you gear up to lose weight can prove to be a great idea, suggests Dr. Surabhi Jain, founder of Nutriwell India. Cereals can cause water retention making you look bloated. Also, switching to a diet rid of junk, preserved and canned food is must.
Tip 3- Dance your way to fitness
A dance class can be a great substitute for the gym. For those brides-to-be who are too lazy or find jogging a job quite monotonous can consider Zumba, Bhangra or Bollywood dance classes which are beneficial as well as fun. Aerobics too is becoming very popular for all the right reasons.
Tip 4- A hydrated body is a happy body
Dietician Shreya who runs her own family diet clinic in Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Jalandhar says that ‘as important as it is to cope up with that treadmill, sipping onto at least 2 liters of water in a day is inevitable as a part of your pre-wedding weight loss program.’ The wisest choice you could make is to replace a cup of green tea with that utterly harmful cup of coffee.
Tip 5- Fruit Juices are not as healthy as you think
If you have been having fruit juices assuming that it is benefitting your body, it’s time to stop. Dr. Surabhi of Nutriwell India recommends vegetable juices made by blending spinach, tomato and bottle gourd (lauki) as a much healthier alternative.
Tip 6- The colorful, the better
Yes, all you to-be-brides, we are talking about your fruit bowl here. Passerine Fitness Centre in New Delhi which has helped many brides to get back in shape wants you to immediately head to the grocery store and pick up atleast 5 different variety of fruits. Those in hues of red such as cherries, apples and strawberries specially add to that bridal glow.
Tip 7- 80% is the diet and 20% the workout
Eating an entire pizza all by yourself and then spending 20 extra minutes in the gym is not the same thing. It's the diet which helps you actually reduce and the gym then helps in further toning.
Tip 8- Natural Sugars can be fattening too
Has it been a while that your coffee has been sugar-free and sweets a far cry but the digits on your weighing machine don't seem to budge. Well,the ones to be blamed could be the natural sugars in potatoes and rice. Even if your weight is appropriate, exessive intake of these food items right before your wedding could be troublesome.
Tip 9- Specific Weight loss Treatments really work wonders
Well, not everytime are gyms trying burn a hole in your pocket while suggesting a specific treatment. 'Cryliopolisis' as Dr. Sunny Bawa of Nidsun Weight Loss Delhi suggests is an effective way to get rid of fat from a particular area. Be it a few extra inches around your belly or puffed arms, Cryliopolisis can take care of et al.
Tip 10- Content Taste-buds or a bridal glow? Your call!
Salt undoubtedy acts as a great taste enhancer but it can take away the much-needed glow from your face. A low salt diet five days before and a saltless one two days prior can work wonders to pump up the radiance.
