Limit processed food to lose weight for wedding
Women tying the knot this summer can lose weight for their wedding by limiting processed foods, refined carbohydrates and sugar, a nutrition expert has claimed.
Nutritionist Anita Ellis told Kristoph Thompson at Women’s Fitness magazine that brides-to-be should also opt for wholegrain cereals and high-fibre foods.
The expert advised avoiding all alcohol and sugar, as these cause dehydration, which can lead to dry, flaky skin and dark circles under the eyes.
"To promote healthy skin and glowing eyes, drink plenty of water and up your vitamin A and E intake by eating lots of kale, carrots, spinach, broccoli, asparagus and celery," Mr Thompson wrote.
In terms of pre-wedding exercise, Mr Thompson advised women to do four or five cardio sessions a week to achieve weight loss and as many Pilates classes as possible to improve muscle tone.
Earlier this month, a survey conducted by SlimFast found that female wedding guests lose an average of three pounds before attending their friend or family member’s big day.
Do you think you’d be able to stick to Anita Ellis and Kristoph Thompson’s advice?
